The Haubergeon Blouse

After completing the forever sleeve(s) of the Haubergeon Sweater-based blouse that I was making for my mom, the body knitted up quickly. Blocking soon followed, and my mom has already worn it a few times now! (Mornings are finally a bit colder here...) I can definitely say that I loved the knit, even if the … Continue reading The Haubergeon Blouse

The Forever Sleeve

I've been knitting a blouse for my mom, based on a pattern in a Knitting Traditions issue - the Haubergeon Sweater. This sweater has a plain body, with a lovely crisscrossing cable pattern on the sleeves that caught my mom's eye. The color that my mom prefers was not available in the suggested yarn weight, … Continue reading The Forever Sleeve

Bamboo eyelet cardigan begins

My Fair Cardi is now deemed to be a morning / midday project, since the black color of the yarn is not very work-friendly in the ambient light of evenings. As a result, its progress has slowed down. Looks like my sister has a bit of a wait ahead for her cardigan. Either that or … Continue reading Bamboo eyelet cardigan begins

Cable City!

Finally, finally! My cabled top is ready. 🙂 This was the most fun I've had with cables till now -- never a boring row! I did work on it on and off, though, so that might have been a contributing factor to the not getting bored bit. 😛 The Nako Saten yarn that I used … Continue reading Cable City!

The Phoenix (My do-over pullover)

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)

Blood and Ash top

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

Two-tone top

Remember when I talked about my novice self strutting off and buying insufficient amount of yarn for stranded knitting? Yeah, in the same shopping spree, I'd also bought another insufficient set -- 3 red and 1 gray skeins of the same yarn that I used for my horizontal cables sweater. Before I bought the yarn, … Continue reading Two-tone top

Autumn leaf top

I've always fretted about not being good at coming up with lace patterns. Cables were something that I managed to get better at with practice, and with practice, I managed to turn out good stranded knitting projects too. Lace patterns were somehow, incomprehensibly, not speaking to me at all. Regardless of what I tried, I … Continue reading Autumn leaf top

Short jacket

Once upon a time, I knew very little about stranded knitting, but I happily went and bought some yarn color combinations -- 3 balls of one color, and 1 of another, thinking I'd knit some colorwork sweaters with them. Gah! If only I'd stopped to think, even for two seconds, I'd have realized that stranded … Continue reading Short jacket

Lemony shawl

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
