I needed a pair of socks to knit, a no think project for when I was tired and decided I wanted to see what the red SandnesGarn Sisu Fantasy would look like knit up. It came out more purple than I expected - the wonder of knitting socks!
The Wonderful Washcloth, note the two Ws in the washcloth or dishcloth. This is a free pattern using my favourite allhemp6.
Grapes Shrug, this was one of my holiday project this summer. The pattern is here. This was my easy project as the pattern row only happens every 6th row so lots of no think knitting in between. The pattern calls for a worsted weight and I used Hempwol a blend of hemp and wool. The hemp/wool blend makes sure the pattern blocked out really well.
I've found that if I get chilly it is usually because I have short sleeves and a shawl doesn't always work, especially if I am working. The shrug solves the problem, warm arms and it stays on and doesn't get in the way.
Here's a sweater a knit over a weekend. This is a great pattern from Cabin Fever called Last Minute Baby knit from the top down, the gauge was 15sts to 4ins so I used Marble Chunky and I had enough left over from one ball to make a little hat.
I originally knit this pattern with Mission Falls 1824 Wool, now that it has been discontinued I have re-knit the mittens using Pingouin Le Yarn 3 and SandnesGarn Perfect.
This is the Briggs & Little pattern Family Thrummed Mittens using Country Roving for the thrums and the new Softspun Hand Painted by Fleece Artist.
