I’m making a sweater, because we haven’t already seen me fail at large item knitting! This one is going much more smoothly though, and I actually have hope of finishing it in the near-ish future.
I’ve finally finished my Prickly gloves, and they rule, despite the fact that they’re uneven because of the difference in my skill between when I started and finished them.
Going to the yarn shop is dangerous, especially if you go during knit-chat time. So many people with so many projects from patterns I’ve never seen, and easy access to magazines to flip through! On the bright side, the Brit Lit Vest seems to be a quick knit, and is totally awesome.
I think that hats may be one of my favorite items to knit. They’re usually pretty quick, and there’s a hat for just about every occassion. I especially love winter hats, because it’s a free license to be ridiculous(ly awesome!).
An idea came to me. I have quite a few projects on needles. Many of them have been there, untouched, for quite a while. Clearly I need some motivation to actually, I don’t know, FINISH THEM. So, I think from now on, I will make a post at the end of the month showcasing all my WIPs and my sad, sorry excuses for why they aren’t finished yet. I have 8 for August, oy, and only a few were even cast on this month!
The Liza Rose pattern in Yarn Forward Magazine, June 2010 looks fantastic in Malabrigo Worsted, and I love my new scarflet!
Finished Object – Blue Malabrigo Heaven. A super snuggly, one skein neckerchief style shawlette done in Malabrigo Worsted.
Finished Object: Summer Lace Shawl. A very open, light weight rectangular shawl that I made by knitting a scarf pattern on big needles with extra stitches cast on.
