Hello guys! My son has requested a pair of slippers from The Knitting Man(ual). He wants neon orange, or at the least very bright orange. I want to make them for him in 100% wool, without spending an arm and a leg. I can find plenty of acrylic neon orange yarn. I found some yarn that is close to 100%, but not in the neon/bright colors.
Here's another pair that I finished yesterday, then washed and blocked them. The colors remind me of a shirt I had in the mid to late 80's of Alexander Julian.
Hi. It's been awhile since I've posted anything. I've been knitting more lately since this Minnesota weather turned brutally and bitterly cold. The weather inspired me to take up my needles and finish a hat. Yesterday I cast off the top of this striped black and dark grey stocking hat.
Last Friday I was snowed in, so I went "stash diving" and found this Knit
Picks "Wool of the Andes" and started a top down raglan. The colors are
"grizzly heather" and "opal heather"....warm and cool...earth and sky.
Four days in was frigid cold outside and inside a warm sweater grew!
I was off for four days starting last Friday and ended up having much of this time to myself. The weather was quite frigid, snowy and windy, so I decided to take this time to tackle a pair of mittens. I had
My school district canceled school today, so I busied myself getting a project done for a friend of mine. Initially, I was just planning on doing the socks, but had enough yarn left over to do a hat as well. So, he gets both. I tried something different with the socks. I used the heavy worsted wool, but instead of using the recommended US7 or US8 needles, I used US5.
Stroll by Knit Picks. Colorway is Cartoons.
This is a pair I finished a few weeks ago. The yarn is Felici that I got from Knit Picks. The colorway is Rainbow which they currently have back-ordered.
Only about 6 more rounds of pattern to go (8") and I'll be done with this bad boy.
