Merry Christmas to all! I finished my Christmas knitting on Dec. 23 -- here is a picture of all the woolen goodies blocking. I got the ends all woven in with time to spare on Christmas Eve!
3 pairs of socks, 2 hats, 1 pair of mittens, 1 pair of slippers, 1 Christmas stocking and a partridge in a pear tree. . . .
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and a happy knitterly New Year!
Fleegle has unvented a way to knit garter stitch in the round without purling or using wrap and turn. I found this fascinating and can't wait to try it.
Although I have been a long-time knitter (35+ years) I am always interested in learning new things and trying a different technique.
Here are some of the little Christmas ornaments I've been making for my family and friends using (mostly) leftover scraps of wool from other projects.
I was just sitting here lusting over the new Patternworks Spring catalog when I noticed something called "Batooga Scarf Pattern" which calls for 9 colors of their new "Shokay" Tibetan yak down yarn.
I met up with a dear friend from high school and she made a comment in passing that she would love to have a piece of knitting but couldn't decide between a blue hat or blue gloves.
Here are some pictures of the baby gifts I knit for my coworker, who is expecting her first baby the 2nd week of February.
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 started this sweater right after Thanksgiving and finished seaming it Christmas morning at 1:05 AM.
These were a fun project for the last 2 evenings. I knitted them in Tahki Zara Plus, which is a super-wash Merino that was on clearance sale at Jimmy Beans. The pattern is from Knitty: "Fetching".
