The Post In Which I Catch Up On My Knitting
Junction ~ leethal mystery shawl 2012 ~ Lee Meredith's pattern, Junction ~ leethal mystery shawl 2012. Knit on US 5 (3.75 mm) needles with Crystal Palace Yarns Panda Superwash in the Bittersweet colorway, Knit One Crochet Too Crock-O-Dye in the Candy colorway, and Lucci Yarn Sequins in the Cranberry (except it's not Cranberry, it's more like Hot Pink!!!!! But definitely Not Cranberry!!!!!) colorway. This was a 5 week mystery knit-a-long. I've worn it several times already and I'm in love with it! Possibly my favorite knit ever!!!!!
A Cowl for Beth ~ Elizabeth Carls' pattern, Sylvia Eyelet Cowl. Knit on US 5 (3.75 mm) needles with Universal Yarn Classic Worsted Impressions in the 4914 (I've seen it called both Pacific and Civil War. It's discontinued so I'm not sure) colorway. This was a birthday gift for our friend Beth. We attended her surprise 60th birthday party a few days ago.
Striations for Mom A. ~ My very own pattern, Striations. Knit on US 8 (5 mm) needles with Knit One Crochet Too 2nd Time Cotton in the 572 White Tea & 793 Amethyst colorways. This was a birthday gift for my mother-in-law a couple of weeks ago. Pattern is available for purchase via Ravelry.
Two Knitted Beards ~ Jessica Laux's pattern, A rather fun knitted beard. Knit on US 3 (3.25 mm) needles with Gala Mixed Fiber Novelty in Dark Brown Fur colorway. These were for a friend who's 2 boys needed beards for their Halloween costumes.
Current Works in Progress
