October 2015

My big project this year was a lace shawl for my new daughter in law.  The shawl started with a provisional cast off at the centre of the stars and was knit to the lace ends.  The shawl tells the story of Adam and Sara who like to fish at the lake, in the forest and watch the stars at night.

The lace ends are from a reproductions to a Shetland Lace wedding veil that was on display at the Great Exhibition in 1851.
I found the pattern in Heirloom Knitting by Sharon Miller.

On our drive to Saskatoon I knit one of these summer slip-ons between Kelowna and Calgary, the second one was almost complete by the time we arrived in Saskatoon.

This cute hoodie is knit in one pieces from the bottom up. I cast on and knit a couple of rows of ribbing before we left Saskatoon, by the time we arrived in Calgary I was almost at the armholes.  By the time we arrived in Kelowna I was up to the armholes on the body and bot sleeves we almost ready to join to the body.

This is Rebecca’s Shawlette, it is a joint design with Rebecca.  The pattern has been written for fingering, double knitting and worsted weight yarns.  It can be worn over your shoulders or draped around your neck.  There are beads along the outer edge just before the lace cast off.

Cabin Fever Tasia’s Cardigan is a favourite pattern in the store.  Here Sonia has used King Cole Fashion Aran and teamed her jacket (it is longer than that pattern says) with a cute hat.

I’ve been looking for a baby blanket pattern to knit, I don’t need a baby blanket, I just wanted to knit one.  I like the construction of this blanket.  It is mostly garter stitch and seed stitch but the construction was interesting.  The pattern is in Lanett book 1318 knit in cream and white on 2.5mm needles.
I liked the grey colour better than the cream and white and I used 3mm needles.  It was easy knitting but it surprising how long it takes to knit 30 rows of garter stitch.

We received a gift of a new sheep this spring to replace the one that wandered off one evening.  Our new sheep, Ewenice, tried outside but she decided she much prefers staying inside in the warm.
