Wow, it’s been a long time since I posted, been through a few changes in my life. But, my love of knitting, yarn, and crochet has not died. Fear not, my friends.
As the holiday season is upon us, I’m busy as a pumpernickel bee trying to determine great gift ideas. So far, I have hopelessly failed!
But that hasn’t stopped me from creating some beautiful works for myself (smiling coyly to myself)…
Drachenfels…oh my, it’s such beautiful, lovely design:
The applied i-cord on the bottom of this shawl adds just an amazing detail to this lovely shawl. I’m definitely going to make again, probably with a sport or dk weight yarn. Rosy Cheek Merino Joy, anyone!!
Ashburn…again, another lovely design from Melanie Berg:
This shawl is designed with a picot edge, but I opted for a k2tog bindoff, which created a nice stretchy edge.
I also knitted a Practically sweater for one of my friends. I’m especially proud of this as I modified the pattern so that it closed in the front and attached buttons. My friend loves the sweater:
A co-worker had a baby, so a simple garter stitch blanket was in order:
And finally, I completed a Mr. Greenjeans in Cascade 220 Paints in the “blue mix” color way:
Much, much more to come in the next month! I can’t wait to finish some of these items!!!
