Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /3

Oh the March section of the Linen and Threads MSAL! I'm still plodding through it since March turned out to be a busy month. I seem to have finished about 3/4th of the section so far. There are flowers in the gaps between the greens, which I will get to next. I'd kept the flowers … Continue reading Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /3

Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /2

I've completed the February section of the Linen and Threads MSAL! I love that the SAL fulfills my expectations of using a lot of colors this year - the sections are not too large, and that means I can use a variety of colors spread across small areas. Aren't the flowers cute? 🙂 The section's … Continue reading Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /2

Oshara Shawl

I completed the Oshara Shawl MKAL, and I'm in love with the shawl! My joy is threefold - that the shawl turned out alright though I didn't know what I was going to make, that my choice of colors turned out alright just brilliant, and that my slight modifications to the pattern turned out alright. … Continue reading Oshara Shawl

Vintage vest

Whenever I see this vest, I think it looks like it's about 50 years too late in the making 🙂 but I love it! It's something that I started quite a while back, and with leftover yarn from not one, not two, but three projects! 😮 I'm just really happy with how it turned out. … Continue reading Vintage vest

Tiny triangles top

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

An earflap hat for my sis

My sis asked me to knit a hat that's not too tight, covers her ears well and also has functional ties that she can actually tie up. We decided on an earflap hat with ties. I was dying to try out and learn intarsia in the round, so I thought this project would be suitable. … Continue reading An earflap hat for my sis

Triangles in the works

My first multicolor project (which I mentioned while talking about a different sweater) is still going on. Not the multicolor part -- no, I finished that. Here's how it looks... I got the idea for the triangles when I saw a character in a TV series wearing a top that had a lot of triangles … Continue reading Triangles in the works

More multicolor

I started on one multicolor project, and I liked it so much that I started on another one. This is such a refreshing change from cables and eyelets. My only gripe for cables and other textured stitches is that they don't show well unless the color and the yarn are a good fit. And eyelets … Continue reading More multicolor

Horizontal cables cardigan

The horizontal cables sweater that I started quite a while ago is officially done today! And I ❤ it! The wide button band that I had in mind eventually ended up being a thinner no-button band -- just because the buttons I thought we already had for this cardigan weren't actually in our stash. I've … Continue reading Horizontal cables cardigan
