21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / a cabled scarf and a lace scarf- link to free patterns on: January 11, 2006 05:53:01 PM
Here are two scarves I knitted as Christmas gifts.  I designed them myself so if you're interested, I can get the patterns to you.  I just don't want to go through the trouble of posting them if no one is interested.  Smiley 
I have posted the lace scarf pattern on my blog and I'll get the cabled scarf up soon.  You can find them here: http://gonnapurl.blogspot.com/2006/01/scarf-patterns.html

This one I call the John Muir scarf because the cables remind me of tree bark and it makes me think of the forest.  It's knit with Knit Picks Andean Treasure yarn.  It's 100% alpaca and it's super soft!  The 1st picture shows the pattern really well and the 2nd shows it after blocking.  It really flattened out and got a bit wider but it's still really nice and warm!

I have more info about it on my blog at: http://gonnapurl.blogspot.com/2005/12/snow-and-knitting-go-together.html

The other scarf I knitted is a pretty simple lace pattern.  It's with Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino so it's super soft!  I put little glass beads shaped like leaves on the ends to finish it off and it turned out really well.  Again, if you want the pattern I used, let me know and some more details can be found here: http://gonnapurl.blogspot.com/2005/12/another-finished-gift.html 

22  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / mini sweater ornaments on: December 10, 2005 01:23:44 PM

Here are some mini sweaters and stockings that I'm knitting for Christmas ornaments.  I love decorating them and it's really nice to have a project that takes only about an hour!  The books Weekend Knitting and Last-minute Knitted Gifts both have mini sweater patterns but since I don't have either of them, I made up my own pattern. If anyone is interested in how I made them, I can put together some instructions.  Let me know what you think of them!
23  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Jesse's flames sweater completed! on: December 07, 2005 12:57:47 PM
Here it is, finally!  I feel like I've been working on this forever.  Maybe because I have.   Smiley  I made a few changes to the pattern and my hubby thinks it's great so I'm calling it a success!  

24  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Dublin Bay socks- from a free pattern on: November 15, 2005 01:17:27 PM

Here is my very first pair of knitted socks!  I used a pattern called Dublin Bay that is free online.  It's a great pattern.  I don't remember the URL.  I used Lorna's Laces shepherd sock and it's such nice yarn!  I highly recommend it.  I also want to say that I was scared to knit socks because it seemed complicated and the guage is so small I thought it would take forever.  It really wasn't very hard, though.  If you can follow a pattern, you can knit socks.  And don't be scared of size 1 needles- they knit up much faster then I had imagined. 

25  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / silky wool sleeveless top on: November 10, 2005 01:45:15 PM

I just finished this top and I love it!  It's for my mom, though, so I don't get to keep it.  It a pattern called Gyrid from an Elsebeth Lavold pattern book and I knit it with silky wool yarn.  It feels so nice and soft!  I also added a small cable detail to the back of it to make it more interesting.  If you like knitting cables, Elsebeth Lavold's cable patterns are great!
