I made these knitted treats for Troublet in the Geezer swap. She's received so I can share now!
A cowl made with Malabrigo (so yummy) and this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/water-diamonds-scarf-and-cowl
. It was really fun to knit! I made the larger size cowl and it only required 1 skein.
Here is a shot while it was blocking...
A pair of wrist warmers made with Frogtree merino worsted. I've never used this brand before but I really liked it and it was pretty inexpensive. I used a pattern from the book, Last Minuted Knitted Gifts
Cabled footies made with Cascade Superwash and a pattern from the book, One Skein
. Fast and fun pattern - I actually managed to finish both socks!
Leg warmers made with...shoot I can't remember what kind of yarn I used for these but I do remember the pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/les-cables-de-faux
. I wasn't totally thrilled with how the stitch pattern came out but it was still a fun project. I definitely want to make myself a pair of leg warmers now.
And lastly, to keep her tea cup nice and cozy, I made this mug cozy using Cascade 220 and this awesome craftster pattern: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=194286.msg2050779#msg2050779
Phew! That's it
. Thank you so much for looking!
