My Next Project

Image
I thought maybe it was time to dive into this gorgeous worsted from dkKnits... I've got 732 yards, so am thinking about a vest-y type thing.


I wanted to make some quickie mitts and found that Dream In Colour "Fatty" is not as easy to come by as the rest of the line... not sure why. The colours and veil dying are the same and the yarn base is soft and soft-twist. Knitting with 8.00mm dpns, though? Not sure about that - they look like telephone poles compared to my usual weapons :)!

I've been plugging away at my Chick Knits"Cassidy", done in DIC "Classy" and am a little distracted - but it seems to be how I work best... I keep setting it down to try out new design ideas. One of those is a variation on the "Nefertiti Scarf" that I designed for Elann. Much to my chagrin, I discovered a couple errors with the original pattern :(.... The corrected version is available now under "Free Patterns" on the Elann site.












I wanted to do a little …

A Few More Off The Needles :)

The cozy v-neck pullover by Stephanie Japel - her book "Fitted Knits".





Technically, a really quick knit but I kept putting it down for other projects! The possibility of snow later this week but a burr under my saddle to wrap it up.


Done in Elann's Peruvian Uros Aran, 50% Highland Wool/ 50% Llama. It is soft and fluffy - should be cute over a shirt :).


And the last of my Christmas knitting is done. I had four scarves to knit and used my "Porthole Rib" pattern, worked flat.


At Last!

I can't believe how long this has taken.... I love the finished result though :).

Sirdar cardigan in Posh Yarns "Helena". I finished the knitting a while ago and was waiting on the perfect buttons and ribbon to finish. There are seven sea green dyed-shell buttons to close the front - the lace border is left open. And Hannah silk ribbon in two colours (brown & moss, varigated plum) to match the colours of the "Heath" colourway.

Me Likey!
