I used a duplicate stitch to do this. It took me all day. Excepting lunch, dinner, dishes, and a frenzied attempt to find the power cord of my friend’s sewing machine in a loaded closet. (It was behind a stack of tubs by the very back wall.) I’m so glad I found it. Whew!
I only got one done. This is sure going to take a long time.
I started this today. I’m using some cotton yarn. I’m not sure it’s the best choice, but I guess we’ll see. It looks great so far. The pattern is the Vineyard Lace Fingerless Gloves on Ravelry. The color is a light blue, although it looks green on the computer. I’m trying to use the yarn that I have before I go buy some more for Christmas presents.
I rather like this one. I’m about halfway done with it. It starts with a provisional cast on which I wasn’t sure about, but I think it turned out alright.
I finished this cowl today. I’m so excited to really finish something (for Christmas) way before I started knitting for Christmas last year.
I used two skeins, and thank God I had enough yarn to finish without running out. The tail above is all I had left. Nothing like cutting it close.
I really love how the stitch pattern looks. This is the pattern on Ravelry. This is my project page on Ravelry, showing the details.
You can wear it without wrapping it around your neck… and fit a kid in there. Or you can wrap it around your neck twice and be super warm. I think I might make myself one because you won’t have to worry about the scarf ends blowing off your shoulder.
Half way done with the Honey Cowl, one skein in one skein to go.
This is the first mitten.
It’s a flip flap mitten that I heavily modified. The original mitten was not a flip flap mitten.
My mom asked me for a thumb to pull back so she could use her phone. I didn’t think it would be good to keep a fair isle pattern with that thumb because of the hole I put it in, so I kept it solid. My mom’s fingers are longer than mine so I had to extend the pattern that I had (which I think that the girl who made the pattern has smaller hands than me). I used a size bigger needles than it called for too.
The second mitten is about 60% done. And then I have to figure out how to block it.
My cousin has decided to become a foster mother. She’s approved for infants to 2 year olds… which means she’s not going to get a lot of sleep. But I thought I’d give her some of my hand knits. I’m using two strands of baby yarn together and a 10 1/2 circular needle. I think this is going to be awesome. After I’m done blocking it, I’m going to put a piece of fabric on the back so you can’t pull the fair isle floats. I’m using a cross stitch pattern as my fair isle pattern. I bought it on Etsy. I’m planning on doing most of them blue, and one of them bright neon yellow. I hope it turns out well.
Beard Hat from this pattern. I didn’t quite do the beard like it says, but that’s alright. It was pretty quick knitting with the chunky yarn.
I knit this hat in a couple days. I used a technique I found on pinterest to make the joining in the round to be less obvious. The tip is to slip the first stitch purl wise on the second round of the stripe, then knit as normal. The second picture is to show the joining in the round.
