My Linen and Threads SAL project is now a wall hanging! I added decorative crochet edgings to the top and bottom of the piece, a dowel at the top, and a fringe at the bottom. The fringe is still wonky, and I'm hoping to find methods to straighten it. If all else fails, I'll just … Continue reading Wall Hanging: L&T SAL 2018
I took yet another break from knitting -- but only for a few days -- during which my mom and I made tasseled fringes for some of our saris. We have a wedding to attend in a couple of months, and we really need to start finalizing apparels and accessories. I'm sure you know how … Continue reading Tasseling Borders
The two-tone top is done! I used up the entire skien of the gray yarn, right down to a tie-cord accessory 😉 at the neck. I still have almost one skein of the red left, though. I'll have to think of a project for it. I'd mentioned earlier that I'd made a ribbed raglan for … Continue reading Blood and Ash top
Not the athletic kind of runner -- it's the coffee table kind I'm talking about. With the yarn left over from the Tiny triangles top project, I decided to first do some cross stitch, something that I haven't done in a long, long while. Yarn that still remains after the cross stitch project -- and … Continue reading The beginnings of a runner
Hurrah! The top with triangles is officially done; I just finished weaving in the ends a few days ago. I'd kept thinking of this as my first multicolor project, but I realized when I saw an old, old tote bag that I'd knit -- that was my first multicolor, stranded-knitting project. Of course, I didn't … Continue reading Tiny triangles top
It's Lemony because of the beautiful bright-yellow color of the yarn. I started this project because I wanted something different to do while I was trying to finish other projects. 😀 Some of those other projects are still not done, but this wrap finished up pretty quickly. I first started with the top-down approach without … Continue reading Lemony shawl
It's done! My simple beginner yoke sweater. Well, it's been done for a while now, I just hadn't written about it... Here's how it looks on me -- A very high-contrast picture indeed! 😛 Regardless of the quality of the picture, I'm happy with how the project itself turned out. I stopped working on the … Continue reading Diamond Yoke Pullover — done!
I'm trying to remember how old these pieces are. (The photo looks pretty old, but I assure you, I clicked it just yesterday using a retro camera app on my phone. Very retro, indeed! 😀 ) I almost can't recall when I made these, but they're at least a couple of years old. I can … Continue reading Waiting granny square pieces…
Harmony. That's what I felt when I started working on a placemat using my stashes of tan and black light weight yarn. And that's what I feel after I'm all done with the piece. The colors just complement each other so beautifully. I'd like to acknowledge Kara at Petals and Picots for her photo-filled tutorials … Continue reading Granny Hexagon Placemat
The cardigan is finally done! For the edges, I finally ended up using a regular 1x1 ribbing. (Nothing like the ol' ribbing for sweaters...) It went pretty slow because I was busy with other stuff, and then I had to wait for my sister to model it -- she was busy with other stuff. She … Continue reading Eyelet-patterned raglan cardigan – finished!
