Scarf

   
 
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.

Honey Cowl

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.

Scarf is finally done

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.

I thought that this yarn and this stitch pattern would be fitting for a man. It seems I have a lot of yarn for girls, but not so much that suit boys. I guess that’s fitting, seeing as I have two toddler girls.

I used size 15 needles and two strands of worsted weight yarn. I think it took me two-three days. Since I didn’t have to think very much about the stitch pattern, I got to read “Bringing it to the Table” by Wendell Berry.

I didn’t use a pattern for this hat. It took me a while to figure out a stitch repeat that would work with the number of stitches I cast on.

These booties are from this pattern.IMG_0215This scarf is also going with this gift. It doesn’t match, but it is still green and white.

 

Scarf and Hat

I made this scarf in one day. I used the last of this yarn on it. It’s more of an infant/toddler size scarf. It is a basic garter stitch using size 15 needles and two worsted weight yarn strands. It’s 30 inches long. It feels cuddly.

I knit this hat last month sometime, I don’t think I ever posted it because it wasn’t with the rest of my finished knits. It’s an adult size hat.

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.

DSCN0969 DSCN0971I 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.

 

Ribbon Yarn Scarves

I finished three ribbon scarves. It took me a couple days to finish them. I used pretty big needles, so it went pretty fast. I used three skeins of the yarn, but I still have more of it. I have more black, pink, and light pink(which I haven’t made anything out of yet).DSCN0707 Maybe some trendy girl will like the difference between black and teal. My daughters like the feel of them. Very soft. They’re all youth sized.DSCN0709DSCN0710 DSCN0711

Bernat Max

I’ve been knitting hat after hat after hat. I’ve had this Bernat Max yarn in my stash for a really long time, so I thought I’d use it. I improvised a hat pattern, using two different size needles – 9 and 10 1/2. I like the size 9 needles one. It fits my 3 year old, and the bigger one can fit me.DSCN0685 DSCN0687

I had a couple skeins of white Bernat Max, and I thought I should make more than just hats, so I made a scarf. I cast on 14 stitches on 10 1/2 needles. The chunky parts of the yarn made an X pattern. I was pretty excited when it turned out that way. It was completely unplanned. I’m really pleased with it.DSCN0688 DSCN0689
