I knit these from Regia Strato Color on size 2 DP bamboo needles. They are from a 1936 Minerva pattern and turned out to be more like knee socks.
I'm pretty proud of myself at the moment - I finished a little 42" scarf for my 3 year old daughter. Yes, it was garter stitch.
At Yugi Dean's request, I'm posting a picture of the hat inside out.
boy - I'm sweating bullets trying to whip the Spanish Armada pattern into shape.
So I just finished the first project for 2008.
Ok, this is my first attempt at stranding. No pattern, just a practice piece I made up as I went along just to learn the technique.
Calling all of you in or near Denver!!
I just want to say to everybody "HAPPY NEW YEAR" and hope had a lot of knitting this 2008!
And big luck and happiness each of you!
Here it is! The technique got more and more refined and I'm never knitting it in tweed again, but I'm happy with the design, as is my sister...
Maybe LONGER as well...
Bound off, blocked, and everything!
