I am currently working on the Brooklyn Tweed Koolhaas hat. It involves a lot of 1-stitch cables.

Progress on the Irish scarf

So I spent most of the afternoon working on that increase and eventual decrease. I really like that section now that I see what it looks like.

Wedding Shawl

When last I blogged I was starting a wedding shawl (MMario's faux spanish lace pattern) as a gift to a friend on her wedding day.

Shawl we talk?

A very close friend of mine is getting married in late September, and I told her I would like to knit her a shawl as a wedding gift.

The intermediate project

So at last writing I was starting a project that let me explore something a little more complicated than simple knitting and purling. I was choosing between a sweater and a sampler scarf.

An intermediate project

I think I have a good grasp of knitting and purling now. I have completed hats and scarves using garter stitching and straight stockinette and some scarves using Gansey patterns and borders.
