I'm finally knitting, yay! My current project is the Cotswolds Sweater (pattern by Laura Hulslander.) I love that it has a lace detail at the back. Regular sweaters usually result in a sweaty back for me, so I'm hoping the lace prevents that. (That's why I prefer shawls these days - I can just bunch … Continue reading WIP: Cotswolds Sweater
(The title was a giveaway but...) It's decided - the Amherst Pullover is going to be a cardigan in my hands. I've made the pattern modifications from pullover to cardigan, and have calculated the amount of yarn required with my gauge. And guess what, it looks like the yarn I have barely covers it. Not … Continue reading WIP – Amherst Cardigan
I guess it was too much to hope that I'd complete this project last year, but it's finally ready. Well, almost ready, since I feel the sweater could do with more buttons but we've not ordered any. However, it's wearable now, so can I consider it done already? 🙂 The cardigan used up almost 1400 … Continue reading A Texturilicious Cardigan
After a successful stripey top, it's time for a new project! The project on my needles right now is a cardigan for my sis that I started this week. Earlier, I mentioned a delicious orange yarn that we thought of working with, but I couldn't really come up with something that would do justice to … Continue reading A Texturilicious Start!
Can you believe it, my mom's blouse is ready! I think this is the quickest I've ever produced a garment. 🙂 While the knit itself was pretty boring because (a) simple pattern and (b) this project occupied every free moment I had, I'm satisfied with how it turned out. The texture is just awesome! I … Continue reading Textured Blouse
The Progress -- Through Thick and Thin I completed the front of my stripey top, and joined the two pieces too. So technically, it's now wearable. 😉 I can't wait to complete the sleeves so I can actually wear it. This is the easiest project ever when it comes to seaming the sides. No pins, … Continue reading Some Progress, and a Restart
Yes! I do love how this cardigan turned out. Black outfit, wavy eyelets and little buttons -- what's not to like? 😉 And I think it's awesome how the simple Old Shale pattern makes for this wavy, beautiful look. I've always liked this pattern (though I used to call it Feather and Fan pattern, like … Continue reading My Fair Cardi
My next project is a sweater for my sis. We'd talked about what she's looking for in it, and she'd said she wanted some eyelets in its bottom half, and a solid top half with some pattern. So naturally, I thought about the Feather and Fan pattern, since my fellow knitting/crochet blogger, Kat, had just … Continue reading So it’s My Fair Cardi!
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)
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
