Coronet Hat

Another project? What is the world coming to... I'm slow to post this one as I've been spending all my knit blogging time hanging out at (amyknitstx).

This is the coronet pattern from knitty--quick, easy and fun with a little cabling. You knit up the band and then pick up stitches in the round to work the hat. Nice!

Yak Yarn Scarf

I'm clearing out the projects--look out!

Here was a quick and fast knit--a yak yarn scarf in a rib pattern. I wasn't sure about the yak yarn. It was lovely and soft, but a bit ugly to work with as it didn't have a solid twist. But... here you go!

Knit Simple Sweater

I finished this lovely sweater about 2 months ago, but it has been so hot that I haven't yet taken pictures until now. The pattern is the Woman's Cardigan from Knit Simple, Fall 2006. I had some old Mission Falls Cotton yarn in the stash from when I first started knitting, and it seemed appropriate for the pattern.

The yarn is lovely and soft, and, while I suppose that wool would have given the pattern more definition, I like the final look. I have pressed the cables, which seems to have helped a bit.

Yankee Knitter Designs Mittens

Another finished project--Just in time for our 100 degree weather. Ok. So it is a bit early for mittens, but my child has outgrown her favorite pair of Lion Mittens purchased at a church bazaar sale in Denmark.

These are made from the Yankee Knitter Designs Mitten Pattern, size child medium. I used Classic Elite Bazic Yarn (superwash).

These are knitted flat and then stitched together.

The arty shot. Yes. Drama queen modeling the mittens.

Lutea Lace-Shoulder Shell

A currently completed project! Wow. This is the Lutea Lace-Shoulder Shell from the Summer 2007 Interweave Knits.

I need a quick summer cotton project and had a bunch of Mission Falls Cotton sitting in the stash that needed to be used. It was a fun project, as it had the little lacey bits on top and short rows for shaping. My only problem was that the short rows hit my bust too high. If I had been paying more attention, I would have dropped them lower. But, still a good fit overall.

This can go through the wash machine and will probably shrink a tiny bit, which can't hurt. Here's the back with the small person who had to get in the picture.

I'm behind in my postings--by about 3 projects. Must take pictures....

It has been a crazy summer, but knitting has occurred. I picked up this yarn at a small shop in Dover, NH when visiting my Mom. I had never worked with Art Yarns before, but the yarn is yummy soft and doesn't seem to do much pooling. This was a quick knit from Knitty--ThujaLink. I finished these during a conference in June, and they received much attention.

Summer Toenails

While I promise knitting content in a few days, I wanted to show you what we are doing this summer. First, there is the pool:

The small person is busy swimming and trying to keep cool. Like the party favors? Of course, as we are fair people, we love the full swimming suits that Aussies favor: this one is from Coolibar.

When one is swimming, one needs pretty feet. Look at the results of the first pedicure. Cute sparkly flowers!
