It has been almost a year since I last posted anything and 3.5 years since I posted my blog about the wedding veil I made for my daughter. I finally have an "in action" photo. She was married on 08/10/13. Mmario was the designer for the shawl, Vera Wang was the designer for the dress, and I have no idea who designed the cowboy boots she wore.
Wow - I didn't realize it's been so long since I posted. So, I've got a few things accomplished that I want to show you. My last post was of a shawl by Romi Hill called Elektra.
Okay I've been diabetic for almost 50 years now and yeah have some circulation issues although not bad. So I had this thought because during winter I like really warm feet what if I made just a long tube sock (no heel) and thrummed them? Has anyone done that? I've never even made a sock but I'm thinking CO like 6 (or so stitches) for the toe.
This is a shawl by the designer Romi (Rosemary) Hill. I always find her patterns a breeze to follow. It was knit using 8/2 variegated Tencel along with a single strand of cream colored rayon. It has 6/0 seed beads that follow the line of increases and also surrounding the larger three triangles at the bottom.
Is this colorful or what? While certainly not colors I would have chosen my son & daughter-in-law picked these for me to use to knit this blanket.
I made this shawl for my sister-in-law; HOWEVER, a big technical error means I'll have to remake it.
I used Kieran Foley's pattern Blackbird but changed it's name for the most obvious reason.
Hi all - it appears my brain disorder created confusion when knitting what should have been a very simple lap throw. It's not bad, and I'm sure the lady I made it for will enjoy it's warmth. It's a simple stockinette stitch, but when finished drop every 5th stitch (leaving 4 stockinette stitches).
Well, I'm among the living and decided to post.
