I’m ready for Spring with my new soft yellow top knit with Garnstudio Muscat 100% cotton.
I tried to follow the pattern, Ann Norling’s The Perfect Tee, and I did for the shaping - well, maybe, I was a stitch or two different. I’ve used this lace edging before and I am really happy with the finished look.
This is my side seam. I allowed an extra stitch on each end of my lace that way when I used the mattress stitch to sew my seam my lace pattern repeat looks continuous.
This is the swatch I knit before starting my sweater. I went with the centre gauge of 21sts on 3.75mm needles
January to March 2013
I had great fun with Purl the little Knit Girl. She is knit with Hikoo Simplicity on 2.75mm needles. You start with her arms and legs, not forgetting all her fingers and toes.
Purl is only 8 inches tall and very cute.
I used felt to make her eyes which are sewn on so very child friendly.
The flower pot is knit with Cascade 220 and felted.
What? Was another Christmas/ New Year project. He is knit with one strand of Simplicity and one strand of Caribou - he is so, so soft. He just wants to be hugged.
I used Colonial knot for his eyes to make him child safe, but his face is not quite straight which is why he is named What? He looks like he didn’t quite hear what you said and is continually saying “What?”
You need three different sizes of double pointed needles for these mittens! The cuff in WoolieBullie is knit on 9mm needles, the ribbed cuff is knit with a single strand of Simpliworsted on 4mm needles and the mitten is knit with 2 strands of Simpliworsted on 6mm needles.
These have received rave reviews at the store.
Gloves for Sara
Gloves knit up quickly, they only take one ball of sock yarn. These are knit with the pattern Guess Who? by Holli Yeoh and Fabel sock yarn.
