Nini N:

This was the Pendulum Jacket, a pattern by Brooke Nico.  Each piece is knitted in miters and short rows, one added onto the other so there is minimal seaming.  It calls for a variety of worsted yarns.  I used about half Noro and half a mix of other yarns.

The sweater was made on a bulky knitting machine out of cotton tape and linen. It is made with short rows and ends up almost circular; then I added sleeves.

This is a Citrus Slice Dishcloth from a free Bernat pattern.  Mine was made from Lily Sugar 'n Cream, but could have been made from any of the cotton yarns.  The pattern shows them in bright orange, green, and yellow, plus the white yarn to make the fruit sections.  I originally thought they were coasters, which would be cute for the summer, but then saw they were larger and were dishcloths.  Very quick and easy, except lots of white ends to weave in.  Could be a nice summer hostess gift to give.

Both sweaters were made from the free ravelry pattern 'Abagail'. The pink variegated is the original pattern as written, made in an old Bernat yarn 'Magic' using size 7 needles. The other was made from Bernat 'Softee' using modifications the designer made for another knitter and making a button band rather than a tab across the top, using size 5 needles. It is a very easy pattern and knits up in a couple of evenings. The size can be adjusted by using different needles and yarn. 

I have made several more for charity as well as one a bit larger for my sister's first grandchild. It is nice to make some 'girly' knits and great that they will go to babies who can use them.

And to celebrate June as Knit in Public Month:

 

Wonder what those charity projects look like?
