I started this project a while back, and have been scared to work on it. It’s my first piece of clothing! It’s worked flat so it should be easier, right? but I’m still nervous. I have only recently mastered working a hat in the round, can I really make a tunic? Sleeves and a little back slit? So far, so good! Continue reading
I have fallen in love with two tone knitting, and I love knitting baby stuff. You make progress so quickly, and seeing it take shape feels so rewarding. I did this one and it ended up being a lot smaller than I expected. Its only going to be good for a newborn.
I’ve been working on this headband to match my Coral Vertical Strip Cowl Scarf for way too long. I know I could have finished it up a long time ago but for whatever reason I keep getting distracted, until this week. TA DA! and I LOVE IT! I want to make another one. Too bad its spring and I don’t really need to wear them anymore, *sigh*. Alas I have a decent headband, ready for next year.
I have this cute coat that is solid black, I really like it but it needs some colour. So, off to the yarn store I went. Apparently this is “pink” but this dye lot looks a lot more like coral. I whipped this guy up rather quickly using the same pattern as my Two-Tone Cowl Infinity Scarf and the same 8 mm needles. I used a 3 needle bind-off technique to connect the scarf. (A tutorial for the 3 needle bind off coming soon!)
I did a slip edge this time, it is a lot cleaner. I’ll likely use that on everything I knit now.
