The Haubergeon Blouse

After completing the forever sleeve(s) of the Haubergeon Sweater-based blouse that I was making for my mom, the body knitted up quickly. Blocking soon followed, and my mom has already worn it a few times now! (Mornings are finally a bit colder here...) I can definitely say that I loved the knit, even if the … Continue reading The Haubergeon Blouse

Fall Shawl

I think I just completed a perfect shawl for transitioning into winter, and though this one is for my sister, I might want to make one for myself. 😉 I even want to use the same color, because it's so bright and cheerful and gorgeous! Since this is a rectangular shawl, I designed it to … Continue reading Fall Shawl

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

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

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

Ear Warmers for Dad

Oh yes! My dad finally asked me to knit something! (The conversation actually went more like -- Dad: "Sooo... there are these things that cover your ears..." Me [jumping out of my chair]: "Yes, I'll make one for you!!!") So I made an ear warmer -- a quick knit. I didn't realize it when I … Continue reading Ear Warmers for Dad

Through Thick and Thin; The Difficult Yarn

Uh oh, the neck seemed to be coming along nicely, but when I join the left and right segments, the stripe at the join distorts. My sis and I remember owning a striped top a long time ago that distorted similarly, but I'm not really keen to have it remain distorted like this. Is the … Continue reading Through Thick and Thin; The Difficult Yarn
