Candy Nurse Knit

A nice afternoon project is this cute wristband. I changed the yarns to more colourful ones though. Here is my last go at knitting a wristband. I love the texture of the yarns. They are uberly fluffy and soft, but they tangle so much :(
The yarns were on sale for £1.20, but the white was £1.50

I finished my Sailor Scarf in black and white. I used Penelope Teapot's pattern.

I still need to add the little bows.

I love the colour combo aswell :)




What's your favourite colour combo?

Kym said...

Ahhh! i have to get back into knitting again! I used to be really good but i stopped for about 10 years and i regret it... i hope to get into it again soon. Especially since i'll be sitting in an airplane for 14 hours next month... i'll need something to kill time. :P

My fave color combo? well i like black, gray, white... and then i also like red and aqua... so probably any of the latter two colors paired with one of the first three. :P

I can't knit. Now I feel not as feminine as I would like to. Maybe I need to learn, like NOW hahaha it's great you know how to though! I'd love to learn but *Sigh* its one of those many things you want to but never do! I used to know how to sew too but have lost that knack now ><

My fav colour combos...well that can be a long list, yellow and pink, white and pink, pink and blue, pink and pink....and yep LOL
