Another shot of the finished Papa sweater. (Thankfully, we are the same size... It fit's me like a dream...I need to make one for myself).
This cap or hat is made with Kollage Cornucopia Corn Yarn. It is made in single crochet in the "Tapestry Crochet" Style. Tapestry Crochet is somewhat alike Color Stranding Knitting.
It's done, and I wore it today...and will wear it again for the Yarn Harlot's talk at the Forestry Center here in Portland, on Tues night....
Just finished a v-neck pullover that will have to wait until the fall to be worn. I used Briggs and Little Regal wool and 4.5mm needles.
Since I am treating my learning-to-knit process as an intellectual exercise as well as a craft, I am doing lots of reading and listening.
This is a big milestone, I finally completed the first of 2 lace patterns. It was a great feeling to finish the first pattern, I am sooooo ready to work on the 2nd pattern....
I'm enjoying knitting so much that - along with my preference for natural worsted and chunky yarn - has got me thinking about spinning.
Here is my week old granddaughter "Charlie" on the organic cotton blanket I knitted.
This is my first toe up sock using my new US 1 1/2 9 inch circulars. The yarn is a hand dyed merino/bamboo/nylon fingering I got on ebay from Oldfield Creek Sock & Yarn, a fellow man who knits.
Just finished my first hat....in time for spring.
