I've published a new pattern. This is based on lumpy handspun I had from when I was first learning to spin. I think there should be more simple patterns out there for making the beginning spinner feel like they are making progress.
I have a number of knits on the needles. I can't seem to find just one I'm really into.
1. Socks - on the foot and getting close to the heel.
2. Twist Collective sweater - sort of on hold because it is a winter sweater.
3. Low Tide Sweater - made with fingering weight yarn it is taking done time. Two front panels are done.
4. Eucador - another fingering sweater. The back is done and I'm just plodding along.
5. Emeral Scarf - done in handspun fingering. A cute geometric scarf that I just cast on for.
I feel like maybe I should cast on for a baby top as well.
Project Details: Started on May 8th and finished on May 12th. I didn't work on this non-stop (so I'm sure you could knit if faster if you focused on it). I used left over linen yarn and modified the pattern to fit a 12 month old. Size 6 needles and a gauge of 4.5 sts/inch. I cast on 100 sts and knit this in the round. The top of the dress was with 4 sts (not the 6 the pattern called for). I also knit the dress longer and the top longer. I think Zooey will be wearing this a lot this summer. Lastly I think I'm going to embroider some little flowers at the bottom.
Project Details: First please ignore the photo of it on - I'm in my pjs! I just wanted you to see how it fits. This project used 2 skeins of hedgehog DK (332yards - I know ... nothing right)! I used size 9 needles and made sure to get all of the errata from the website. I worried that the sleeves were going to be too big - but they are not. With the single skein I have left I might make one for Zooey. I started this on April 16th and finished on May 2nd. I would make this again in a heart beat. I love it. I think I'm going to wear it today to a craft fair up in town.
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
