You see, I knit and knit and knit... and then never photograph anything. I'm super awesome that way. So, then I pull out all the items I've completed in the last uh... 2 months and photograph them all at the same time and then you receive this veritable dumping of knitted objects.
So where were we?
a pair picked out, but it can wait till the temperature drops below 70 degrees again... in December.
yarn I used for this hat back in September. I knit the hat in December. It was one of Abbie's Christmas presents. But we don't often have occasion for hats. I used the Purl Beret pattern from PurlSoho and it turned out so, so cute.
Speaking of handspun...
WoolPig Crafts Etsy shop. It is now 235 yards of Superwash Blue Faced Leicester in a DK weightish...?
chunky cowl. It was my first chance getting to use Berroco Vintage Chunky and I was skeptical because it has a rather high acrylic content, but it was just lovely.
Pattern is here and yarn is Misti Alpaca Lace.
Opus Spicatum. It is knit out of Swish Worsted which I must say I really love. I just wanted to add that it was about 82 degrees the day I took all these pictures and I was sweating mighty fiercely. Gross.
And lastly, not a finished object. A WIP (work in progress.) Matt's Memory Vest. Knit out of Cascade 220 Superwash. The back is finished, the front is about 1/3 done. And now I'm off to go work on it whilst I watch me some Netflix.
Thanks for reading!
I once found a pattern for mittens made for picture taking. They had a hole by the pointer finger to snap the shutter. I wish I knew how to knit so I could make myself a pair.
They are awesome, thanks for posting them. I think you ought to share your talent by teaching a class in your local yarn/hobby store or teach on line somehow. Move to Canada!
I LOVE your yarn. I dont knit or do anything with yarn, but you make me want to horde it.
i love how your hat turned out and the vest is going to be bEautiful!
I like the rainbow colored yarn and I want your purple shirt. What are you going to use the rainbow yarn for?
Wow. Beautiful work. I don't even know how to knit but now I'm coveting a spinning wheel. And big clumps (probably not the official term) of wool. So thanks a lot for that.
What wonderful FOs! I'm hoping to give cowls a try myself this year. And your own yarn is gorgeous. Spinning is on my want to learn wish list for this year or next.
