Finished: Star Motif Sweater

I finished the vintage Fair Isle sweater for my partner’s Christmas gift. I’m sure it will look great on him when he finally wears it, but until then we’ll just have to admire it on the blocking rack, with very unfortunate lighting (yes, the main color is all the same, but the way the sunlight reflects on it it looks like it gets darker as you go down the sweater): 24 more words

Once upon a time there was a pixie who secretly knitted a pair of plain brown socks – with blue speckles all over – for her husband’s birthday… 298 more words

“Make us a crazy-bright, Mexican-inspired blanket!” they said.

As fast as you can

Knit, knit, knit as fast as you can! Winter is nearly at an end, and it feels like it has only just begun. The season in New Zealand really is far too short in my opinion! 504 more words


FO Friday: Henry's Hat

I finished Henry’s Hat for Jellybeans Christmas present. (Well except for the buttons)

I worked the 6-8 size as written. I knew as I was knitting that the hat looked shallow. 105 more words


Kirkwood Scarf

It’s finally done – the Kirkwood Scarf.  This project was such a fun knit, with three rows of cables running down the scarf.  It’s knitted up in nice soft Brooklyn Tweed… 153 more words

This project took far too long to finish. It got waylaid by the crochet blanket.

It’s a finger puppet.

I’m pleased with how it turned out and it had the added bonus of using up the tiny left over balls of yarn in both the orange and the blue. Free pattern from ChemKnits.
