9 skeins of Rowan Felted Tweed Chunky - 495 yards. Size 10.5 needles. I made the size 40" chest (small). But it is not 40" at all! Fits okay on a medium frame. Started on December 12 and finished on January 22nd. Fun to knit!
I had a great skein of handspun 100% angora yarn. It was around sport weight and I did these on size 3 needles. Only took ~150 yards or so and I invented the pattern as I went. I think my swap buddy will like them.
Simple Beanie Hat. Started on January 24 and finished January 26. Fast knit with hand dyed yarn. Size 5 and 6 needles. This is a bit on the tight side - I measured her head to be 17.5" and that is what I knit - but tight nonetheless. Next time a bit bigger.
I've never made a dog sweater before - and this was pretty fun. A friend requested it for her aging dog.
Wurstwarmer Dog Sweater. Started on December 14th and finished on January 7th. Not a super long knit. I didn't like the wrapped stitch pickups that you can see around the chest of the sweater. If I ever make this again I will use a different technique. It took 2 whole skeins of Knit Picks Galilelo (262 yards) on size 6 needles.
I liked how this pattern had a section that you measured your dog for. I hope it fits my friends dog. I'll post photos if I get any!
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!
