If there was any community that would appreciate what I've made, this would be the one. A friend of mine, Malibu, requested a set of hand knit Beer Cozies to be given to friends of ours in Iowa. Proving that you can find anything with Google, I came up with several on-line patterns.This one was the simplest and yet most effective...
I've finished yet another scarf. I'm way ahead on stocking up for random Christmas gifts this year. ( A surprisingly rainbow scarfCollapse )Now I just need to think of another easy-knit pattern to carry with me.
My arms need a rest, but I've finished the bottom facing on my Swans Jacket. Turning it and knitting it down was a bother, but it will save me the annoyance of sewing it down with duplicate stitch later on, so that's worth it.
Well, being out of work again has me finishing various projects, and starting new ones.For example, ( Booga BagsCollapse )Some of you might remember me working on the green bag at Con.Txt -- it took about a day to do the body of the bag, plus a few more hours for the i-cord. I waited until I had the purple bag finished before fulling them both. Karaoke fulls *very* fast and hard compared to Noro Kureyon. That surprised me, since it is 50% wool and 50% soy silk and Noro Kureyon is 100% wool. It also finished slightly smaller, even though I knit the Karaoke on size 10 needles, and the Kureyon on size 8s.
I finished the Swans Tam. This is the matching hat for the Swans Jacket pattern I bought fromYarns International at this years MD Sheep and Wool.( It's pretty niftyCollapse )I think the Swans Jacket will be a rather nice project, but I'm not going to work on it until the weather gets a cooler, and even then it will be a do-at-home project, since I doubt travelling with it would be anything other than frustrating.Tomorrow, I submit my two enteries to the July show at the Strathmore though, and it will be interesting to see whether they sell.
I've been doing a lot of knitting lately with two goals in mind; first to finish up my many works in progress and second to use my rather sizable stash before making any further yarn purchases. So here is a finished sweater made from stash.( Read more...Collapse )
I've gotten quite a bit finished in the week and a half of unemployment. ( Wanna see?Collapse )I kind of want a job now, though.
Hello everyone! I recently finished ( this green bikiniCollapse ). I got the pattern out of Stitch N Bitch, the first book I believe. I still need to run some elastic around the edge of the waistband (I didn't follow the pattern exactly...), but I was rather pleased with it.
I finished knitting the ChildHood the other day, and today the buttons were sewn on. This means it's finally finished! WOOHOO!
I finally finished the Cable Ride socks I started last year. Of course, they are wool, and I won't be able to wear them until winter. But they're pretty.( Cable Ride socks, and Hemp Flowers necklaceCollapse )
