I haven’t been around because I’ve been frantically knitting holiday mini projects. I just finished this hat and mittens for a friend’s daughter and will give that to them tomorrow. The yarn was a freebie on Rav and the yarn is Rowan’s Pure Wool Worsted, my go to, it seems like. 🙂
I also have to redo a dog sweater because WOW were we off with the size, plus baby shower stuff. And I did finished a little pull over top, but as it’s cotton and short sleeves and it SNOWED in Maine today, I haven’t got a photo of it yet. 🙂
Made for my friend Jen because she asked me ever so nicely and I have so many lovely things from her. Quick n’ easy cable hat made with Rowan’s Pure Wool Worsted in Granite. LOVE! On to make one for me.
Something about getting up with the air temp at -6 makes you want warm things! 😛
FINALLY I have some decent light for a post holiday photo. 🙂 I made out like a bandit at Christmas. My family knows me so well.
From my hubby, I got the Knitter’s Pride Karbonz interchangeable set, which I just LOVE. From a dear friend, I got the Knitter’s Pride Karbonz DPN set. My sister got me Blue Sky Alpaca Melange, which I am just chomping at the bit to find the perfect pattern for. 🙂 And my mum got me this spectacular project bag. I’m in love with it all! 🙂
Then I had this last minute gift to whip up for a friend’s daughter in Rowan Pure Wool. 🙂
As soon as I get a chance, I’ll do my year end knitting wrap up post. 🙂
At last! There’s a photo of me modeling my LeHigh jumper. Not the best photo and my hair, as always, is terrible, but you can see the sweater.
My Lehigh Jumper in Rowan’s Pure Wool Worsted is nearly done. I cast on the second sleeve last night, blocked the front and back pieces yesterday and hope to be able to block the first sleeve tonight after the trick or treating is done. With any luck, I can put it together Sunday when I’m off work. I hope.
This is the first time I’ve done a sweater that will be seamed, so I am a bit nervous there. I want it to look nice and can see myself being a perfectionist over it. (Usually I do top down sweaters)
I do love this project – the pattern is written extremely well and the yarn! Oh! I do so love it. I can’t wait to cuddle up in it when it’s finished. It’s been fantastic to work with.
Here is my pile of finished bits:
I’m working by myself at the yarn store this week and next so I found a new sweater to cast on. It’s called Lehigh and made with Rowan’s awesome new Pure Wool Worsted in Rust. I love that it looks so comfy and warm and is working up so quickly (I usually do sweaters in fingering weight yarn). I can’t wait for it to be done!
Knitting a pair of hats for a pair of friends. Had a couple of false starts, first with sizing (the first was way too small), then with striping, but now I think we’ve got it down pat! Just about ready to decrease the crown of the second hat, then it’s on to the finishing touches.
So very shiny! 🙂
