This scarf stitch pattern got old really fast. I probably should have made it longer. It is so pretty though. I did mess up twice, and I didn’t realize it until I bound it off. Oops. I did decide to not put a fringe on it. It doesn’t roll on the sides though, which is pretty cool.
I did the white parts while I was at chick fil a watching the kids play in the play place. And I finished the eyes when I got home. Double stitching is much easier than I thought it would be.
I’m working on these Monster Pants for a handsome little man in Colorado. I think it will fit him for a while.
I need to finish the second leg, graft the crotch together, and sew in the eyes and teeth into the tush area. I started out with a small circular needle, then I switched to double pointed needles when I started the leg. I’m using a silver grey, neon green and navy.
Ding! The mailman rang the doorbell. Oh yay! A lovely pink package. I ordered some lovely Hayfield Bonus DK yarn. I’m making some monster pants with this pattern. Grey, neon green, and navy, should be great! I’m excited.
I finally got this scarf done for my husband to his approved length. The last two times I went to the store to buy the yarn for it, it was sold out, so I drove across town to the west side store to buy it.
Somehow my scissor handles broke. I guess I should stop leaving my knitting bag on the ground.
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.
This is a hat I’ve started in an all over 2×2 rib. I love this color- bright blue. It should work up quickly.
I finally got my husband to agree to wear something I knit for him. I pulled it out 3 times because it wasn’t wide enough. It’s just a 2×2 rib. It’s not curling – which is something that happened the last time I tried knitting him a scarf. It might take a while to actually get this long enough. At least it’s a mindless knit that I can do when watching TV or reading a book.
I finished this hat last night. It’s definitely big enough. It might be a little too big, but the recipient can still wear it and keep wearing it for a long time.
I decided to use size 4 needles, and I added a stitch repeat, just to make sure that it wouldn’t be too small. The yarn was a charm to work with – DK Superwash Merino.
I’m pleased with how it turned out.
This is a sweater that was purchased in the Shetland Islands. I was asked to use it as inspiration for a child’s hat. I’m using DK Superwash Merino Wool. It took me about 45 minutes to work out the chart and figure out where I was going to use these three colors. In the original there are 7 colors. Now I need to figure out what size needles I need to use and make sure my gauge works out. I really love working on these types of things. It takes much more thought than just knitting from a pattern that’s already worked out.
