Gosh! It has been a quite a while since I've posted here, beyond a few comments. So, I thought I'd best share a couple of recently completed projects.
Well here is a picture of the happy couple (smile). Unfortunately he is not a knitter but is very supportive of me.
I wasn't sure that I would have the patience to actually complete the project, but with some self discipline and stamina, I finished Barbara Walker's Learn To Knit Afghan.
I remember when I first found this site I saw a pattern for a knit scarf with slipped stitches that when finished it is short but is then pulled from either end for length.
All chomping at the bit to get started on the saddle shoulder sweater. Swatched it out. Got 4sts/inch. Gonna use US size 9's. 204 sts for the body.
Here I am drafting and spinning some lace weight Alpaca yarn, what a lot of fun.
When I started knitting, my first project was a pair of baby booties, and it's still one of my favorite patterns.
Here's a project I finished last month for my neighbor and gave as a birthday gift.
Here are some photos of fininshed projects
I have been following a fun little blog about a pair of rebellious outdoor Guerrilla knitters here in Wellington, New Zealand - Link to the Blog Outdoor Knit
