Friday Finish

It's a grey damp day here in the Dordogne so my Friday Finish came in very handy this morning when we went to the market!

Last week I showed you this picture of my first attempt at Domino knitting.





 A week later and I have these.



My thanks to Barbara for letting me have the pattern. I enjoyed working on these and will definitely be making another pair. There are certain improvements that I can see I can make and I will use smaller needles next time as they could be a little snugger. But I am very happy with them as a first attempt.

These two crazy heart sachets have been gifted this week so I can share pictures of them.


These are quick little makes and are great for trying out stitches and using small scraps of fabric.

It looks like we are in for a wet weekend so I have plenty of sewing plans! Hope you have a happy stitchy weekend.

Your heart sachets are stunning! What great gifts. What kind of fabric did you back them with? What did you fill them with? This is such a good idea.

Your fingerless gloves are amazing! You are so clever. I don't think I would have the patience LOL.

Chantal a dit…

Those fingerless mittens are awesome! I love them. I don't know much about knitting. I studied your mittens and I have absolutely no idea how you did that. But they are awesome! Lovely colors too. The heart sachets are show stoppers. WOW! AND WOW!!! Of course, I love the blue one a little notch more because ... well, it's blue! But they are both fabulous. Congratulations on finishing the mittens. Enjoy! ;^)

The hearts are charming, and the domino knitting looks distinctly intriguing - you could make a wonderfully steampunk, dragonscale effect with it, couldn't you!
