Project Details: I started this on April 11 and finished it on April 15th. A quick knit. The pattern didn't say how long to make it so I did 3.5 repeats of the pattern. I used a Rowan cotton that I got on super clearance from Village Wools (I think $5 for the whole thing). I think Zooey will be wearing it tomorrow!
I'm sending mittens to a swap. After I finished the mittens I decided a hat was needed as well. The mittens too me a few days as did the hat - but I hope that my swap buddy loves them! I used fingering weight yarn with a nice cobweb held together.
I wanted a nice flowing poncho for spring. Here is what I made. This poncho is made as a large rectangle and then assembled. It was out of the Last Minute knits book - but I have to say it was not as "fast" as I thought it should be.
Started on February 5th and finished on April 4th. I used Debbie Bliss Fez (which is in interesting blend of merino and camel). It came out drappy like I wanted - but the neck opening is a bit large (we will have to see how it wears). Overall I'm pretty happy - but we will have to see how it wears next week to work.
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!
