This is the most complicated project I have attempted to date. I began working on it last night (17 December 2008) and am pleased with the progress thus far.
Since finishing a wonderfully chunky scarf last week, I've barely picked-up a pair of needles. Not because I need to take a break, but because the complete set of Knit Picks nickel DPNs haven't arrived from just about the only UK supplier.
My primary project lately has been a raglan sweater for myself from this Japanese Vogue pattern book.
I had completely forgot that I had never put this up, but this was the first hat I ever made. I wear it often, but now it is too cold, so I think I need to line it with something.
My scarf arrived while I was out of town on business, so I didn't get to open the package until late Sunday night. The scarf is great. It has nice color work in greens, browns and neutrals and is very thick and warm.
Finally got my Scarf exchange scarf done. Now I just have to get to a post office to mail it. We had about 3-4" of snow, an all of Corvallis is shut down.
So I finished a hat I was making today...one of 2 "Turn-a-square" hats by Jared Flood that I was planning on making for my 2 brother in laws. But there's a problem...the hat's too big.
So I am making hats like this for my brother and his soon to be wife (getting married on Friday.) I got his done, now am working on hers.
OK, I know that I have been a member for a few weeks now, so I thought I should show you the photo I took of my first knitted item. I have made a few more things since this but it was my first.
