My charity knits are coming along slowly, but coming along anyway!
Here are two scarves I knit some time back - using up stash and looking forward to giving them to someone in need.
The left one is made with local sock yarn from Wollkontor Erlangen, some Finnish wool and an old yarn called Tiffany. It was knit in fisherman's rib with 4 mm needles, and it's about 1,70 long. I think it used about 200 grams of yarn!
I'm so happy to finally be able to show you my Coraline cardigan, which I have been working on for a good while now, and which waited for a long time in my shelf before I got the right buttons for it (and actually sewed them on!). But here it is now - and I love it!
The pattern is Coraline by Ysolda. I did make quite a lot of modifications, read on for more.
I just noticed I haven't blogged about two hats I finished months ago! Time to correct that mistake.
First I have a beret - the pattern I used is Beret Easy and the yarn is an old merino / modal blend called Marika Moon. I was going to give this hat to my mother in law, but I still have it... let's see what I do with it!
Behold, an FO! I haven't been knitting very much lately due to a change of role in my "real job", which requires a lot of time and learning, plus a general, temporary loss of interest in knitting (terrible, I know!)
That seems to be coming to an end soon though. Well, the job stress will last for a while, but the lust for knitting part is getting better. That can be seen in these two shawl FOs as well.
I was going through my year last weekend, and decided it would be nice to pull together my knitting highlights and the steps I've taken to build my site! So here it is: the best of Worsted Knitt in 2010!
A while back I made a lot of baskets for the home - one of the green ones now holds (some of) my knitting, the other is used for Wii gear, and a few small ones I never blogged about are being used by my DH. These baskets have come in so handy, I decided to make one more for my "stuff". This is what I created.
Welcome to the part two of my FO hat show, where I present two more of my recent FO hats! In the first part I showed you one hat for my MIL and one for chcarity. Of these next two hats one went to my MIL, too, and the other one to my colleagues to-be-born-any-day-now son.
I've been making a lot of hats lately! I'd like to share them with you - here are the first two.
The first gorgeous tam is for my mother-in-law, who's had it a bit rough with her health and has had some of her hair removed recently. To cover and keep warm the bald spots she wished for some knitted hats. I decided to make a few for her to choose from - this is my first try.
To answer right away: it's a knitted bag with a flap top; you put a baby in it thus keeping her warm but leaving her a lot of room to kick. During the night/naps, it may also remove the need for a blanket completely!
My shawl love is not showing any signs of dying, and that's just fine. As long as I like making them and find people who want to wear them (although I do keep most myself...) I'll keep making them. They're so quick! They're so pretty! There's interesting lace! They're made out of sock yarn but aren't tiny gauge! What's not to love. This is my latest FO, the Clothilde (Rav pattern link) shawl.
