I made the Bella Botanica Shawl (by Karen Strauss - free download on Ravelry) for a friend of mine here in Morelia. I used Tosh Lace in the colourway "Tart" and 3.75 mm needles. Quick and easy. The top is 84 inches and the depth is 36 inches. It took about 750 yards.
Let's see, got my normal dishcloth projects moving along, my primal scream socks starting and yes my newest the Chekerboard Blanket that is designed to be a baby blanket but since this baby is 6 foot 3 needs modifications :) ..... 38 1/2 inches square just wont due. Sooooo......
Here is the pattern that a few of you guys have requested of me. Enjoy and Happy Knitting.
Snow Drift Afghan
Approx. 53" x 62" before fringe.
Whatever worsted weight yarn you are going to use. 29"circular needles No. 8 or size to get gauge of 23 sts of 1 pattern repeat measuring 4-3/4 inches and 6 rows = 1". Crochet hook No. 5 or F.
OMG! Why do I look patterns and dare myself to do them? I bought the ellington pattern from Cookie A and have been struggling with the first ten rows. For some reason when I get to row 6 on the chart, I start finding problems, like my stitches aren't matching up with the graph.
A few years ago when I started knitting I was breaking all the rules by buying yarn that I had no planned use. As the story goes, I found out the yarn I was buying was pure crap (most of it was acrylic) and wouldn't stand the test of time.
I have the most adorable grand niece, I have yet to meet her but I've seen the pictures and she is a doll - see for yourself.
Fellow knister's will be in Florida Daytona beach at the condo.
Just wondering if anyone knows of local lys that, I could check out I'm in the mood as always, for some new fiber.
It took me all bloody day and a poorly written pattern I found on Ravelry, but I did my first bit of 3D entrelac knitting!
Hey guys I found the pattern to the "snow drift afghan" at my lys...
Will post the pattern soon for those that would like it..
I almost have my first sock made and have come to the conclusion that its the yarn and needle size that's giving me all of my issues. Needless to say I still have another to make to complete the pair, but the process seems fairly simple at least for these socks.
