After all the experiments for my friends it was now time to make something for my boyfriend. Being a devoted Manchester United fan I figured he’d appreciate this. I used KG-Chart program to convert the logo and then spent about 8 hours editing it to have just 3 colours instead of the initial 25 – 30 colours. It took me a month to complete each cross stitch logo which is about 10″x11″ and then I knit the scarf using 6/8 cables. After all that work I decided it was better to put his name on it as well. I used a celtic cross stitch pattern site that I can’t find now. Needless to say he really likes it and I’ve been asked by all the other football fans for one with their team logo. Although I haven’t gotten around to actually doing that yet.

After the success of the previous design I tried again and was happy with the results. This meant that theoretically I can use simple cross stitch patterns in my knitting.

I used excel to put the pattern together. Turns out that excel can be used for both cross stitch and knitting. I was quite impressed with the results.

After making my stash bag I decided to make a scarf. I wanted to see the difference in flat and circular knitting while following the same pattern.

Vardhman Millenium Yarn

4 mm Knitting Needles  I made this to help with organizing my tatting tools. The box I’m using to keep the shuttles keeps opening so I made this bag to hold it all together.

This is for my Bible. I made a square base and then picked up stitches along the edge to make the body of the bag. Feb​​ 2012

This is my pencil case, I stitched it down the middle to create 2 sections.  ​​​​Jan​​ 2014

I made this the similar way I made the bag for my Bible hoping that it would at the least resemble a box. I guess the edges are too short. I use this to store all my small tools which seem to be slowly increasing as time goes by. ​​​​May​​ 2014

After organizing all my tools I decided to make a handbag for myself. I needed something big enough to fit everything I carry around with me. Since college, I tend to carry a lot of things around with me. Helps me save time looking for small items. I added a few designs to the four sides of the bag too. I used excel to make the pattern for the designs.

I made this to help carry my current project around the house. It ended up being a little small, but I learnt how to make bags so the purpose was served.

I frogged the first bag and used all my scrap yarn to make this bag. For the body I used seed stitch. I use this to keep all my tools together. It’s a little big but does the job.

This was the first phone case I made for one of my colleagues. I wasn’t really happy with the results because it ended up looking like a coin purse. I cross stitched the logo as a request.

My husband asked for an eye mask to help him sleep during the day while he was on the night shift. Again I misjudged the amount of a border I would need to keep the stockinette stitch from curling.
