Knitting projects finished in January and February
RED SCARF - (top photo) Pattern: “Argosy” http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTargosy.html This pattern was something new for me, but didn't take long to get the hang of it. It was more challenging and interesting than most scarves. I would do it with a lighter weight yarn next time. Wool: My own from ewe M’Darlin’ dyed antique red. Mill spun 3 ply.
SHAWL - Pattern: “Tricia’s Shawl” with optional lace edging from Sally Melvilles book “Book2: The Purl Stitch”. This was easy and fun to knit. ( Second photo: My daughter K models the shawl. Third photo: a close up of the lace edging). I hurried to get the triangle finished so I could do the lace edging. It was the first edging I have knit-my goal is to try a new technique often to enlarge my knitting skills. (other option for finishing is a fringe). Wool: My own from ewe M’Darlin’ and "Big Red" in natural, mill-spun 3 ply.
MITTENS - Several mitts (some in photo but some I never took photos).
Wool: My own from ewe M’Darlin’/"Big Red". Handpainted "Buckskin & Blue", "Citrus" in orange and lime, "Antique red" with natural black. Mill spun 3 ply.
Projects started in March 2007
SHAWL - Traditional Fan and Feather design knitted from end to end (rather than side to side). No photo yet.
Wool: My wool from Pat & 99 in natural (I might dye this when it is finished). Mill spun, 3 ply.
