In the works: Stripes!

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

This is my favorite item in the works. I’ll be making a matching scarf after I finish the other glove.

Yummy Stripes

Some day, these will be knee socks. Some day. It is a pretty pattern, though.

Sheldon's shell is removable. I need to make him some costumes.

Quiet, but not idle!

Life got in the way of posting, so let’s catch up on the projects I’ve finished in 2009 and early 2010!

Let’s start with a collage of finished projects:

Finished Projects 2009

From left to right: The Angora and recycled denim hoodie that I carded and spun. The cotton cardigan I made for Brian. (I will photograph it on him as soon as I sew the buttons on…which will happen as soon as I find where I put them). The shawl I knit for myself from the most gorgeous hand dyed I picked up at an alpaca show. There were 12 different kinds of yarn. I love this shawl a lot!

12 Different Yarns, hand dyed

Here’s a few more projects I finished in 2009.

Kate's Mobius Hat

Kate needed a tinfoil hat to get rid of the alien thoughts! So I knit her one with math involved! The band is a mobius strip!

Scarf for my daughter Jennifer

Scarf I made for my beloved Badger

My buddy Allison took me to a great little yarn shop in Davison. She saw some yarn she really liked and I wanted to learn how to make socks! A match was born.

Socks for Allison!

I created a nice ribbed pattern with a raised stitch.

To my delight, they fit her perfectly!!
