Started on November 4th 2015 and finished on May 31st. Mountain of Light shawl. Took two skeins of sock yarn and had one cat attack (where they frogged a few rows for me). I love the pattern and color combos!!
This took me a while and I picked this sweater to knit because I loved the yarn. Started on December 20th and finished on March 26th. I would say I worked on it on and off. I used 1225 yards of Debbie Bliss Pure Cashmere yarn (let's hope I don't felt it). I added an extra inch to the sleeves and they still ended up 3/4 length. Guess it is perfect for spring time. The only other issue I have is that the yarn came in 25 yard balls. A lot of loose ends to weave in.
First project of 2016. A swap scarf. Just one whole skein of sock yarn. Quick easy pattern to memorize and work. Started on January 16 and finished on February 25th. I changed the pattern a little to cast on 48 sts. I'll probably make this again.
Project Details: started on June 11 and finished on November 28th. I used Debbie Bliss Cotton Silk Aran yarn in a mustard color. This knit is not one to start and put down. It is too complex for that. I would actually say it is one of the hardest constructions I've ever gone. I did add a few extra rows to make it longer and only had 2 feet of yarn left.
Started on October 1st and finished on November 19th. I used Elsebeth Labold Silk Wool XL (Aran weight). I love the drape of it. I did another half repeat of the pattern because I was worried it would be too short. And I'm happy I did!
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!
