So, I've been doing a lot of knitting lately (so. much. knitting). Here's what I've come up with.
First, here is my sister's Christmas present. Kristen, I don't know if you read craftster but if you do, no peeking!
First time with cables. Pattern is Namaste from Knitty.com, and the yarn is Knit Picks Main Line. I love pima cotton, it's really shiny. I hadn't done the strap yet in these photos and of course there's nothing in it, but now the strap is on there (it's a six-stitch i-cord.)
Next is my friend Kiah's Christmas present, the Buccaneer's Booty socks from the pattern here on Craftster.
There are two, I promise. I just only have a photo of one of them and I already wrapped them up for gifting. They're done in the recommended yarn (Knit Picks Elements, I think it was). I loved this pattern! First time with Fair Isle.
Finally my friend Jody commissioned me to make her some mittens! This pattern is from http://www.konop.net/lifework/
and I love the way they turned out.
These are made with Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Forest Heather. I loved this pattern, it was so fast and easy. First time with increases.
...can you tell I like trying new things with every project?
soon I'll run out of new things to try!
Comments and crit welcome!
oh and here are two pairs of knucks I made a while ago.
