Look At My New Scarf!

30 Nov

Isn’t it super pretty?

It is a traveling scarf, done by the lovely ladies in the Scarf Journeys group on Ravelry. Unfortunately, I had to bow out of this scarf journey because of health issues, but the members taking part were super kind and finished my scarf anyway. I’m so happy, it’s beautiful and so warm.

Scarf & Mitts Set

24 Nov

I finished this set recently for a present. Two garter stitch-based patterns which go well together.

The scarf is “My Garter Slipped Scarf” and the fingerless mitts are the “Garter Stitch Mitts”.

The yarn is Melinda by Woll Butt.

A Little Scarflet

8 Nov

I knit this little scarflet two days ago, it took a grand total of 2 hours! What a quick, fun, easy knit… I love the result!

The pattern is Candy Wrapper Scarflet by Mary Keenan and the yarn I used Colinette One Zero

Boy-ish Scarf Finished

31 Oct

I finished the scarf I was knitting for my 15-year old cousin Valentin. Here it is modeled by my 5-year old – obviously too big for him!

Works In Progress

21 Oct

While my Ederra set is being tested, I’m working on two projects.

The first one is a boy-ish scarf for my 15-year old cousin Valentin who lost his mum a few days ago. I’m hoping the woolly goodness will make him feel at least a teeny-tiny bit better… It’s the One Row Handspun Scarf. I like how it’s coming along, I think he’ll like it.

The second project I’m really excited about. This one is for ME! It’s an icelandic vest, which I’m knitting in Lopi yarn. The yarn is yummy and I’m really excited to get started on the colour part. But, it’s knit bottom-up, so it’ll be a little while until I can get there. I only started last night, so there’s not much to it yet. The main colour is a dark green and I’ll also be using a light green, a dark red and a natural colour for the colourwork. The pattern is Létt Lopi Vest and I’m using the suggested Létt Lopi Icelandic yarn.

Newborn Set Ready

21 Jan

I just finished a newborn set I was knitting for a friend. Her baby is due any time now, so I’d better hurry to send it off. She wanted white, so white she got. We don’t know which gender the baby is yet. I just hope it gets to her on time.

The mittens are a personal pattern. It is very simple. If there is interest, I will write the pattern and offer it for free. I just have a few other patterns to finish up first.
