Knitting – FO

All the posts published.
 

Last night I went into the stash to pull yarn to match up with my new patterns. I had success and now have 6 kits awaiting knitting. I was contemplating which to start, and I just didn’t feel like winding yarn. Instead, I found a few luxuriously soft single skeins of a discontinued yarn, Classic Elite Miracle. I had bought this in three shades to start a sampler blanket with …

This isn’t actually the first finished object. Before finishing this I actually frogged 5 projects on New Year’s Day. That’s still finished, right? And of the frogged projects, three of them were completely finished, all the ends sewn in and everything. I just wasn’t pleased with them and didn’t think anyone would actually use them if I sent them as gifts or for my ongoing gratitude project. And the yarn …

I got a message from my son recently about a batman hat I knit him a few years ago. Before he even had to beat around the bush, I had guessed that he washed it and well, its no longer a hat that will fit a human…so he asked if I could knit him another one and of course, I said sure. I looked (sort of) for my pattern notes …

It’s just about the cutest thing ever…it’s a safe bet that there might be a theme of cutest thing ever recurrung here for a while. There is a new baby girl to knit for…the Fabulous Miss Ella… I went to Nimblefingers to pick up a pair of size 6 circs with a longer cable and there was a display of Bambino Taffy yarn from Be Sweet. I always like their …

Elizabeth Zimmermann was brilliant, I can’t say it often enough. I always complain (in a loving knitterly way) about her patterns being obtuse, but I am so charmed by her writing style that I try, try again. And when I finally have success, well damn it, I feel pretty brilliant myself. I honestly think that even if I wasn’t a knitter, I would be enamored with her books. This is …

It was so easy to blog every day when color week was going on…having that prompt made it more necessary in my brain, I guess. Today, my brain is just misfiring, so there shall be no cohesion or effort toward such in this post. You’ve been warned. Last week I had a little knitter finishing spree and I finished up 4 older projects. Do I have pics? No…but I was …

The final day of color week was a choice of either white/grey or rainbow. You might think I would play the gay card and choose rainbow, but since a lot of my other knitting was more than just the color of the day, I decided to go with whites/grey instead. The white tam is called Snow¬† Star Hat and is from the first issue of St-Denis magazine and by Veronique …

Doesn’t every kid at some point say lello for yellow? For color week, hosted by curious lisa (linked left) Wednesday is yellow day. Skully is a sweater I knit for Elizabeth. I don’t really know what I was thinking, but it was back in the days when I followed the pattern pretty much to the letter. I have since learned a thing or two. Next week I am going to …

Second a cotton scarf for allergic to wool Susan. Third is an Irish hiking Scarf for Kim from some lusciously soft tweedy blue stuff. Fourth, some malabrigo mitts for my …
