East Beach Tee

East Beach Tee | Anita

I'm happiest when starting a project, and even more so, while I'm ending it - especially while blocking, when I can admire the fruits of the hard (but enjoyable) work that I put in over the past few weeks (or months, in my case.) And it is with a happy grin that I present my … Continue reading East Beach Tee

Pullover ft. Entrelac

Pullover ft. Entrelac

I can't believe I managed to finish the entrelac pullover before I start the Oshara Shawl MKAL! It's definitely not what I had in mind when I started experimenting on featuring entrelac, but it's also definitely not a bad attempt. My main concern in this design was to account for decreases and increases in the … Continue reading Pullover ft. Entrelac

Dial M for Mystery

I thought I didn't like it when the letter 'M' is prefixed to make-along projects - not knowing what I'm signing up for would drive me crazy. However, it looks like I'm drawn to it this year. I've been enjoying the MSAL sampler cross stitch project from Linen and Threads since Jan, and now I've … Continue reading Dial M for Mystery

Pullover ft. Entrelac – Attempt #2

Since I hadn't much liked how my entrelac-featuring pullover attempt was going, I decided to try a different, easier-to-execute design. This one features more entrelac area, and looks better with alternating colors of narrower entrelac strips. I haven't frogged my attempt #1 yet - that'll depend on how my progress on this one goes! Here's … Continue reading Pullover ft. Entrelac – Attempt #2

Pullover ft. Entrelac – progress

Entrelac strip - done! In order to prevent pesky tangles, I used three balls of yarn - one for the darker entrelac color, and one each with the lighter body color for the triangles along the two sides. (Of course, very little of the light colored yarn got used for the strip.) I'm now knitting … Continue reading Pullover ft. Entrelac – progress

Ideas – Pullover ft. Entrelac

Entrelac is a technique for which I always need a refresher tutorial, but once I relearn its principles, I wonder how I ever forgot. 🙂 I'd bought two colors of this speckled Nako yarn, from which I plan to make two sweaters that each have one main color and a little bit of the other … Continue reading Ideas – Pullover ft. Entrelac

The Phoenix (My do-over pullover)

My pullover has risen again from its own ashes, and is now a beautiful sweater that I'm waiting for colder temperatures to wear! I absolutely adore this pullover! ❤ Of course, I did wear it to model it... Phew! The weather's definitely way too hot for all this stuff. (Look at the glare from the … Continue reading The Phoenix (My do-over pullover)

Almost a do-over…

I'm almost done with my do-over pullover. And by that, I mean I only have to block it! (Yay!) Hopefully, this weekend will be it, and I can wear it -- and write about it here -- proudly. 🙂 Oh wait, it's already getting hotter, and it'll be summer soon. 😀 Well, I'll get to … Continue reading Almost a do-over…

Do-over pullover progress

The do-over of the old frogged sweater that I'd talked about earlier is coming along nicely. Like I wanted to, I changed the cable pattern for the new version. I'd used a uniformly twisting basic cable earlier -- knit a few rows and then make a 3x3 twist on an RS row. This time I'm … Continue reading Do-over pullover progress

Tubular bind off

I'd frogged an old sweater so I could remake it into something that I'd like better and wear more. I've started working on the new pullover, and this time, I decided to finish the neck first, instead of leaving it till the end like I always do. 1x1 rib seemed like a good match for … Continue reading Tubular bind off
