View Full Version : Matilda - FO & WIP

I LOVE projects that are way easy but look so difficult.

Both are gifts for special people. The blue one went to a little girl that helps walk our chocolate lab when I walk with her mom. The other is a "feel better" gift for a friend that is having a tough time right now.

Now presenting Matilda:

Those are very nice. What kind of yarn did you use?

Thank you. I was pretty proud of myself. :teehee:

The blue one I used Red Heart TLC & some specialty yarn from Joannes (can't remember the name, sorry). I liked it because it reminded me of the ocean or sea.

The multi colored one is Lion Brand suede (black) & Lion Brand Jiffy in El Paso. I liked the color transitions so I grabbed it not really knowing what I was going to make.

I know that these aren't the more expensive yarns that a lot of people favor but they were pretty & soft so it worked for me. In the end no one really knows (unless I tell them) what I spent on the yarn anyways. :D

Both are very pretty!

I just finished a Matilda a week or two ago -- I thought it was a really fun knit! :)

Thanks everyone for your nice comments. They aren't as exciting and impressive as some of the other projects on here but I was pretty proud. :oops:

And knit-errant I'm so totally with you on the fun part. This was pretty addictive. I'm guessing I'll be making a few more for Christmas gifts. Quick, easy & fairly impressive looking! ;D

Thanks for looking at my work!
