I’ve been meaning to post more about knitting projects here, but I tend to be so busy that I rarely remember to document what I’ve done. But here is some holiday related knitting!
What we have here are a couple simple mistake rib scarves for my kids, the orange and blue objects. This is [...]
Before summer I finished this Pop Block (pattern from Knitty) out of some great Madelinetosh yarn.
I was even able to wear it a bit in the spring when we had some unseasonably cold weather. Now it is well into the 90s in Utah.
I started Stripe Study in the winter and put it [...]
I made a 3 hats (one each for my husband and kids)
I couldn’t find the red one I made, so imagine that is there
This was a simple ribbed hat pattern from Ravelry.
When knitting for myself, I am going through a Madelinetosh/Veera Välimäki phase right now.
I started Different Lines a [...]
I actually finished a project just in time for the cooler weather!
This is the second Clockwork that I’ve knit, I gave the first one away to my Mom.
I really like the open circle shape of this scarf. I made it with 4 balls of koigu.
I had the multicolored red and purple [...]
I finished up a couple projects recently.
A Citron in Madelinetosh Prairie Lace yarn, I think the color is blackcurrant.
This was basically my main summer knitting project.
Easy pattern, but it does get a little tedious towards the end.
Looking forward to actually wearing it when it gets colder.
I also [...]
I generally only knit for close friends, family, and people who I’ve written a book with. Since I have a limited amount of time to knit I generally only knit projects for myself. But it is fun to figure out how to make something new, which I did when Dave asked me to make a [...]
This crumpled thing of maroon is an almost completed Citron.
I’m thinking of working a few extra repeats, to make it more of a shawl than a shawlette. In which case, it isn’t close to being completed. I’m thinking of making Blue Whale next. I have some Handmaiden Casbah in my stash, with two [...]
I’ve knit a couple things.
First, this Clockwork scarf:
This was a fairly fast knit, and the slipped stitch details keep the endless garter stitch a bit interesting. I can see myself knitting a few more of these. I didn’t mean to duplicate the colors used in the pattern sample scarf, but [...]
Here’s another recently finished project, an infinity scarf:
This was inspired by Stephen West’s purl ridge scarf, except I was using heaving fingering weight yarn instead of worsted, so I cast on a bunch of extra stitches. I made it with one skein + a tiny bit of extra of Socks that Rock Mediumweight [...]
It is pretty cool when you knit for someone, and the item you made gets incorporated into a work of art. I made a multidirectional diagonal scarf for Benjamin Birdie and he included it in his daily sketch blog, Benjamin Yesterday.
