Vest

Finished this vest about a week ago and got it washed and blocked. I used Palette yarn from Knitpicks and am really not a fan. I ordered a lot in this colour and in a grey.

The Flacon

Just finished the Flacon doily from the Yarnover site. I did it in an evening including the blocking. I used my mother's old recipe of sugar and water to starch it.

Fast and easy shawl

Made this shawl for my sister out of worsted weight and 8mm needles. I started at the top and included shoulder shaping and a gusset. It is nice and roomy and she tells me it stays on very well.

Two little sweaters

Just finished up two little sweaters for mi amigo Patricio. He just turned two years old.

Vest

I had enough Kroy of the same colour to make a vest. It is just the ticket for these cool mornings and evening. My own design with Paton's Kroy, 3.25 mm needles.

Happy Feet

Exam supervision means extra socks. Although all knitting is saytisfying, there is something special about a pair of nice warm socks. Happy feet mean a happy me.

Doily

Jedward led me to a site called Yarnover where I found this pattern. I used #6 cotton made here in Mexico and 3.25mm needles. It was a fun and fast project.

Too late for this season

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.

Blocking Lace

Mes Swansen, in "A Gathering of Lace", describes how she hangs a shawl with a sideways knitted on garter stitch border over a 4" dowel suspended between two cupboards to block it.
