What I'm Making


#423

My fingers are itching to touch that fabric. …


#424

Studded leather cowboy boots go with EVERYTHING. And so does wool!


#425

It is super soft and lofty. Even softer than it looks. I guess I should sew in the ends someday soon!


#426

Done! This is the Cannon Beach Cowl.

That Woolfolk Får is my favorite for this project; the chainette construction of the yarn makes it really lofty, lightweight and warm. Second favorite is the Malabrigo Merino Worsted (single ply, the purples).

And I made matching mitts, too!


#427

These are so adorable! Are these your own patterns, then? I’m envious!


#428

My niece brought me some Peer Gynt yarn when she visited her boyfriend’s family in Norway. I knitted my oldest son a Marius sweater.


#429

Made this Guernsey for my middle son-- he selected his own buttons.
Pattern was in the book: Norwegian Finishing Techniques
Yarn: Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in Birdbook Green


#430

Very cute - the boy and the sweater!


#431

I went a bit bonkers after giftmas knitting and now have 4 new projects in rotation.

No. 1 is Nukumori (from latest Knitty):


This had to be substantially ripped back, because of gauge issues – does anyone have any hints on figuring out reliable gauge on “lightly stretched” ribbing?

No. 2 &.3 are sweaters for me and the spouse (Carbeth & Missing Lopi):

Color is way off in this pic – imagine gray and tan.

No. 4 are Mīlēt mittens:


#432

First mittens. They were my New Year’s Day’s cast on.
My husband ordered me some Finullgarn for Christmas. He meant to order four skeins but ordered nine instead!


#433

I just finished Section 2 of Speckle & Pop. It is my first Stephen West and won’t be my last. In fact I am fairly certain I will cast on another Speckle & Pop when I finish this one!

It’s a fun knit. He’s a genius.

Here’s my Ravelry project page. Eye candy below!


#434

I’ve just finished my Swirl hat (from the Sequences field guide)- this was the third iteration (issues with gauge, sizing - the usual things…:rage:).

The yarn is Outlaw Bohemia Sport, a local brew which is nice and lofty as it is a mix of Polwarth, alpaca and brush-tailed possum.

Added a fake fur pompom as a finishing touch. Warm and cozy, looking forward to wearing it this coming winter!


#435

Still working on Ninilchik. On the stockinette slog at the bottom. Love the yarn!


#436

Wolf River Sweater:


#437

I have just designed and knit this new shawl using worsted weight Elysian from Cascade and a beautiful hand dyed yarn from Essence of Autumn.


#438

How lovely! These are some of my favorite colors…


#439

Thank you very much. It is also some of my favourite colours.


#440

I an working on a pattern for Dk weight children’socks


#441


What I’m making now is the Gingnam Cowl from Marlisle, by Anna Maltz, with Haymarket and Milo - all from our lovely MDK shop. This technique is so much fun, I hope to be finished with it tomorrow.


#442

That is SO CUTE! Love the grellow. I am going to have to check out this book; the projects look so fun to knit.
