Seems like I'm only updating once a month or so. Sorry about that. Life is pretty crazy around here.
Started on September 15th and finished on October 26th. I used Cascade wool singles (we will have to see how the yarn does). Size 8 needles so it did go quickly. Can't wait to put Zooey in it.
Project Details: Started on July 13th and finished on September 14th. Took me too long, but with a toddler and kittens I'm amazed I finished. Size 7 needles and delicious Hedgehog single fiber. Colorway is Hunter and took 4 skeins (1004 yards). This need a nice bath and blocking, but I think it will be a great holiday sweater!
Project Details: Super fast knit. Took one skein of Classic Elite Yarns Toboggan. Which feels great and I hope wears well. I always wanted an elf hat. One day to knit. Size 10.5 needles and just what the doctor ordered.
In the past 2 weeks I have started 2 sweaters and have frogged both. Either because I hated the yarn and pattern together or because the pattern was written so poorly there was no way for me to make forward progress. I have another one lined up to start tomorrow. Let's see how it goes! Wish me luck.
Project Details: Started on March 23rd 2013 and finished on June 26th 2014. Yes a long time, but it was sitting untouched for a while. I do love how it drapes and fits now that it is finished and blocked, but fingering weight yarn just takes forever! Took 3 skeins of sock yarn on size 7 needles. I made the sleeves 3/4 length instead of long or short. I like the end product but I would never do this again. Painful!
It is June first and you might be wondering where I've been. Well I've been here. Knitting and crafting away. The fingering sock sweater is going so slowly that progress is really at a glacial pace. I've cranked out a couple pairs of socks and scarfs. But, otherwise I really want to get this dang sweater done. Anyone want to finish it for me???
Project Details: Started on February 3rd and finished on April 4th. It really didn't take me that long, since I was mixing in cross stitch at the time. I had three balls of delicious sock yarn from Elann (baby silk). The pattern is called Eileen Dress (although this is more like a long shirt more than a dress). It is really soft and I think will be good for spring and into summer. I followed the 18 month size for the top and 24 month for the width at the bottom. I'll try to post a photo of her in it.
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!
