Discworld Stitch Markers

These are the stitch markers I made for the Ankh-Morpork Knitter's Guild stitch marker swap. I traced images from "The Art of the Discworld" book onto shrinky dinks, which was lots of fun. My mum thought they were very cool when they shriveled up!

AMKG Altoid's Tin

I was in another Ankh-Morpork Knitter's Guild Swap on Ravelry. It was just a small swap of some stitch markers, but I did have fun making a cute container to put them in.

I've been wanting to do something with my altoids tin's for a while, and this got me off my butt to do it. The design is the group's coat of arms.

Garterlac Dishcloth

Another dishcloth! I've found the couple I've done are a good way to have a go of a new stitch without starting a massive, overwhelming project.

Made with Peaches and Creme in Pink Lemonade, and the pattern is from here.

Long Lacy Shawl

This has taken me a couple of months to finish, but I'm really happy with the end result. As well as being a nice shawl, it's light enough that I can scrunch it up and use it as a scarf.

The pattern is the Long Open Shawl and once I got into it, it was easy to memorize.
