I have a bunch of FOs that I’ve been meaning to post, so I thought I’d just do them all right now and get them out of the way. Here goes.
- Pattern: Guinevere from Wrap Style
- Yarn: KnitPicks Shimmer in Galaxy
- Needles: US 6 / 4.0 mm, US 9 / 5.5 mm, US 10 / 6.0 mm
- I knit this as a sample for the latest KnitPicks catalog. The pattern was very easy to follow and the yarn is just beautiful. It’s an alpaca/silk blend that is super soft and shiny. I made this back in March.
- Pattern: Can’t remember the exact name of the pattern but it’s from Weaving Made Easy
- Yarn: Sugar and Cream 2 balls each of ecru and dark brown
- Woven at 7.5dpi then cut up and sewn by hand.
- I love how this bag came out but it really needs lined, I’ll get around to it eventually.
- Pattern: Cold Mountian by Kieran Foley from the Summer ‘09 Knitty.
- Yarn: Lorna’s Laces Helen’s Lace, less than 1 skein
- Needles: US3/3.25mm
- Finished size: about 25”x76”, I blocked mine out a little longer.
- I love this yarn, it’s soft, shiny, and blocks beautifully. The stitch definition in the lace is so crisp. The pattern itself is great, it’s all charted out so it’s easy to follow and easy to memorize and I love the way one section flows into the next. There’s more pictures on my Ravelry page.
- Pattern: Spring Beret by Natalie Larson
- Yarn: Simply Cotton Worsted in Malted Milk from KnitPicks, a few yards less than one skein
- Needles: US 8/5mm
- This is a cute hat, it looks better on but I couldn’t get a decent picture of it on my head. The pattern works up quick and I memorized it after the first round so I barely had to use the actual pattern. This yarn is much softer than most of the cottons that I’ve used and it has a nice drape and didn’t hurt my hands as I knit. I would love a little cardigan made out of this to wear in the summer, it comes in sport weight, too.
That’s it. I have an almost finished blanket on the needles but I forgot to photograph it so more on that later and I finished spinning my singles today but I’ll save that for tomorrow.
