Here is a picture of sweater. Did not attatch first time!
I designed and knit this sweater 30 years ago. I was exploring the Nordic tradition, so this was knit in the round with cut steeks for the sleeves. I added the red hem facings to add a secret dash of fun and pazazz! This was a "cropped" style which a big departure from the long and loose sweaters that I was making at that time. I wore this yesterday and received raves and compliments.
I am currently knitting the Scot Wars Bonnet, a Scottish style cap based on a 17th Century pattern. I really like the simple pattern instructions and I think the bonnet will be great for our clan gatherings. However, one down side of the simple instructions is lack of detail.
Here is my version of "wingspan" using 60 st instead of 90. Yarn is Crazy Zauberball, color 1702 ombre.
I have posted lots of pictures of my knitting on Facebook ,if you care to view.
As you can see, this is my passion!
Took some pics last night of some stuff I recently knitted.
Just about done with the striped section of the Color Affection Shawl, and then I'm onto the short rows section. Stripes are more subtle with a variegated yarn. If I knit another Color Affection, I'll likely stick with solids/semi-solids for the stripes to stand out more. But the colors are certainly pleasing to the eye.
Well, last time I said I would post pictures of a few other things I made as Christmas gifts. It always takes me forever to go through the laborious task of transferring photos from the digital camera onto the computer.
Okay, thinking about checking out knitting socks, since the guys here say it's so easy. However, I'm looking for opinions and advice as to yarns, and dpns, or circs and magic loop.
Here's my sweater, finally done. I couldn't find the rhinestones. Actually finding buttons I liked was like looking for a needle in a haystack. I'm pleased with the ones my partner found, and they were cheap enough that I wouldn't cry if I found what I was searching for later on; buttons can always be redone, I figure.
