WIP: Yesteryear Yoke

My crochet project is now underway! I mentioned in my previous post that I own a top that I've only worn once so far - its lace yoke disintegrated at places when I washed it. (Talk about delicate!) I've been looking at making a crochet yoke for the top, so I can add it back … Continue reading WIP: Yesteryear Yoke

Puck’s Tunic Inspired Shawl – WIP

My current project, a shawl for my sister, is inspired by a tunic. She really liked the pattern when we browsed through magazines for potential candidates, and I just have to multiply the pattern by N to make a shawl from a tunic, right? 🙂 Puck's Tunic is designed by Susanna IC. (Remember my Oshara … Continue reading Puck’s Tunic Inspired Shawl – WIP

WIP – Kashmiri Shawl

My Kashmiri Shawl is coming along well. I knit a couple more repeats of the first pattern than I'd originally planned - my row gauge had turned out to be a bit off - and now I've made about half a repeat of the second pattern. I've not figured out the new pattern yet, and … Continue reading WIP – Kashmiri Shawl

A New Project – Kashmiri Shawl

It's time to fulfill my wish of knitting a lace shawl after the (un)fashionably delayed completion of my Amherst Sweater knit! Since my sister and I have still not zeroed in on a project for her, I started on a shawl for me (or for Mom if she likes it when I'm done.) I'm now … Continue reading A New Project – Kashmiri Shawl

WIP: Amherst Cardigan

I finished the sleeves of my Amherst cardigan, and they fit just the way I like them! The Brioche stitching of the cuffs never seemed to end, but it finally did, icord-style. Brioche stitch looks wonderful with two colors - I like it more than the single color version - but I don't think its  … Continue reading WIP: Amherst Cardigan

Two steps forward…

... Two steps back, and almost a step forward. That's the state of the Amherst Cardigan right now. I almost completed the sleeves, when I realized I didn't really like their form and fit much. Well, it's better to knit it right instead of letting it slide and being unhappy when I wear it, so … Continue reading Two steps forward…

WIP: Amherst Cardigan

Progress has been slow on the Amherst Cardigan... As planned, I'm on the sleeves of the cardigan now, knitting both together. I'm happy I work two at a time now - makes it much difficult to make mistakes on only one of the sleeves, which I'm sure I've made on an old project because one … Continue reading WIP: Amherst Cardigan
