Shawl -Eliina Shawl (Eliminated 2 rounds of the body)
Yarn - Lana Gatto VIP Wool/Cashmere
Free pattern on Ravelry
is RedHeart, the pattern is Sashay. I found it rather
frustrating to knit because you picked up the yarn
on the edge & it was hard to get a rhythm going.
I made 2, one with 10 stitches & the other 6st.
I prefer the narrower ruffle.
is a vest made from Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Grande,
Plymouth pattern N026. It is a very easy one-size-fits-all
cowl is "Maruschka" by Birgit Freyer at Knitting Delight
- the yarn is by Hand Painted Knitting Yarns called
Biellos which is a braided mohair/nylon combination
and the button is a hand made caned glass button by
Mike Hayes at 3rd Degree Glass
is called "LazyLara" also by Birgit Freyer at Knittnig
Delight - the yarn was a gift from Toni and is Fleece
Artist Blue Face Leicester 2/8
blue sweater is mohair knitted by my daughter Maggie
D. The scarf is a JoJoLand pattern and yarn using
patchwork technique in hexagon shape. The knee
high socks are of Cascade Heritage sock yarn using a
basic kneehigh pattern but with cable and lace stitches.
pattern is Basketweave Scarf by Ann Budd, originally
published on Knitting Daily, Fall 2004. The
pattern was actually free, part of Knitting Daily's free
knitting patterns they routinely offer in their e-mail
newsletters. It is pictured on a man, but I
thought it was a very pretty woman's scarf!
The notes from Ann Budd say she used the Double Basket
Pattern from Barbara Walker's Treasury of Knitting.
The yarn is from the Queensland Collection, Rustic
Tweed, 63% wool, 27% alpaca, and 10% donegal, and
I bought it at the Knitcraft Yarn Shop in Independence,
MO. We were visiting the Truman Museum, Home
and Farm, which were fascinating to see on a weekend
short trip. I highly recommend them.
is in "101 Designer one-skein Wonders", it requires
1.75 oz of cotton yarn, or your choice of similar
weight and 178 (approx.) size 6 seed beads.
It is best to get a "good" bead that has uniform holes.
of the shawl is the "Lazy Katy" by Birgit Freyer.
The yarn I used is the Chroma fingering (396 yds)
from KnitPicks in the color "Pool party" . I wanted
my shawl to be larger thus it used up a little more
than 1 skein (~ 440 - 460 yds) of the Chroma.
I knitted the stockinette part up until I had 181
sts, then decreased 1 st in the middle and started
with the lace part. It is helpful to use stitch markers
with the lace part.
what those charity projects look like?
