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.

Hi Lin wow those gloves are amazing and look so hard to make and those patchwork hearts are so cute,well done my friend xxReplyDelete
Your mittens look great from the domino squares. Sweet crazy patch hearts.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
They look very snuggly. I love your pretty hearts too xxReplyDelete
Love how your mittens turned out, and the colours you have used. The hearts are pretty too.ReplyDelete
Very interesting mittens looks so complicated to knit . Love the little hearts, sweet stitching ❤ReplyDelete
Just the right time for your mittens! I haven't seen this way of knitting before.ReplyDelete
Love the sweet little hearts :-)
Your fingerless gloves are amazing! You are so clever. I don't think I would have the patience LOL.ReplyDelete
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! ;^)ReplyDelete
Ha. Love the gloves - they are very funky!ReplyDelete
those gloves are so fun - I have never heard of that technique before. Your hearts are just lovely - I bet the recipients were very happy...ReplyDelete
The hearts are charming, and the domino knitting looks distinctly intriguing - you could make a wonderfully steampunk, dragonscale effect with it, couldn't you!ReplyDelete
Oh wow, your mittens look so good Lin, what a great technique, you've done a wonderful job!ReplyDelete
Those mittens are gorgeous! Such a lovely stitch and wool xReplyDelete
