Welcome to the August edition of Wool on Sundays!
It has been very hot here, lately. Much too hot for knitting really but I did make a couple of small ice creams. I made them for my Endeavourers quilt but then decided it already had too much going on.
Should you happen to want to make some ice cream appliques, though, or join a few into an ice cream bunting they are made very simply and quickly as follows:
Cones – cast on 11st and work top down in garter stitch.
Row 1: knit to end
Row 2: knit to end
Row 3: k2tog, knit to last 2 st, k2tog
Repeat these three rows until 3st remain. Knit two more rows and k3tog. Fasten off by passing yarn through remaining st.
Ice Cream – Join yarn to first cast on stitch (top of cone). Insert crochet hook into this stitch and make a loop. Work 12 dtr (2 wraps round hook) into centre stitch (6th) of cone top, insert hook into last cast on stitch of cone top, pull though a loop and fasten off.
My garden, alas, continues to be an endless endeavour but the nights are slowly drawing in and surely we are due some rainy days soon, and I will be less a stranger to my Makery and blog. I wish you the happiest of weeks wherever you are : )
