Just finished the Flacon doily from the Yarnover site. I did it in an evening including the blocking. I used my mother's old recipe of sugar and water to starch it.
Just curious how many guys have used this interesting heel that I found initially at colinknits.com but then got more detailed instructions at Don Yarman's blog here:
I'm looking for an easy (ie fast) pattern for a baby hooded bath blanket. Any ideas?
Not too long ago, On my other blog, I posted a short bit about scarves. I talked about how I tried tried to make one and failed miserably.
I've finished knitting the first of two hanks I dyed a few weeks back. I did a total of four, two at a time. The first two the color was even and a richer brown.
Had to share a picture of the latest edition to our family. Nine week old Shih Tzu puppy named Henri Bourassa (anyone who knows Montreal metro will know how I chose the name). He is too much.
Well, I feel like I've really joined the club now - I knitted a shawl!
Finally, I wanted to post my Tri-Colored Flecked Tweed Hat. I am soooooo pleased with this. It's soft, feels great to wear, and the pattern came out beautifully in the colors I chose.
I knitted this just for fun. It's not the greatest hat in the world, but I am pleased with how it turned out...except the photo is horrible.
Travis returned from South America...ill as all hell. Yuck. At least I have my camera back and can snap some quick (albeit shitty) photos of my last few finished projects.
