1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Trellis Baby Sweater on: December 15, 2005 11:38:08 PM
Woohoo! Finally done. All those little cables took a surprisingly long time, but I think it was worth it. Actually watching the cables grow was quite enjoyable, and I liked having tiny seams to do at the end instead of grown-up sized ones. Just in time for my friend's baby shower this Saturday. All that's left is to find the perfect buttons and do some touch-up steaming. I would definitely recommend this project. The directions and charts were clear and error-free.

Yarn: Online Trend Collection Linie 21 Marly (via Elann)
Fiber: 100% Superwash Merino Wool
Size: 12 mos.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Silk Leaf Cravat / Oven Mitt on: August 12, 2005 09:01:11 PM

Inspired by nikki-shell's Teva Durham Lace Leaf Cravat, I came up with this version using the simple leaf pattern in Nicky Epstein's Knitted Embellishments. The yarn is Noro Hannah. The leaves' stems are 5-stitch I-cord, and the length between stems is garter stitch. Too bad the yarn is so wicked expensive! It does feel quite exquisite on the neck. I think you could easily get two cravat's out of one hank of Hannah.


Made by my beloved, this felted project from Felted Knits using Lamb's Pride Bulky -- less than one skein of the pink and, obviously, very little green (limeade). He asks that I mention that it is better used for retrieving things from the oven than the stovetop given the fuzziness of the mohair in Lamb's Pride, which is prone to singeing (stinky!). By the by, he's the one who taught me to knit. How cool is that?!?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hudson Sweater from Jane Ellison Noro Book on: August 03, 2005 06:55:53 PM
This version, made from just under two skeins of natural black Eco-wool (about $30 total) on size 10 1/2 needles, is cheaper and more versatile than the self-striping one shown in the book. I hope you can see well enough despite the hard-to-photograph black.




Hudson knits up fairly quickly, and can easily be modified to be worked mostly in the round for those who hate seaming. I'm working on a mauve one now for a birthday present, and am knitting the body all in one piece this time, which is working out great. Thanks for looking!
