Puck’s Tunic Inspired Shawl

Looks like I managed productive bursts of knitting towards the end of my current project, and completed it as a surprise move! I'm as surprised as you are - I certainly expected this post to be an I'm-almost-there one. This shawl is inspired by Puck's Tunic from Susanna IC. I knit the shawl with sections … Continue reading Puck’s Tunic Inspired Shawl

Through Thick and Thin – progress

I'm almost done with the back portion of the top, and will finish it with a k3p2 ribbing. I've been using TECHknitter's tip for a more uniform, less distorted fabric at the transition from stockinette to ribbing. And I must say it works great! Ah, the magic of slipped stitches! 🙂 I'm looking forward to … Continue reading Through Thick and Thin – progress

Before I bought the yarn, … Continue reading Two-tone top

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

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
