Flower Purse

Saturday, August 6th, 2011

I finished the little girl purse to match the Flower Cardigan! It’s crocheted, unlike the sweater that’s knitted and measures 5″ x 5.5″. I was inspired by this purse design that I found on Etsy, and so I looked for a stitch to use in one of my crochet books. I knit the flower and sewed it on top of the purse. It’s so cute!!

Meandering Vines Shawl

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

Ta da!! Here is the “Meandering Vines Shawl!” After blocking, it is so beautiful. This shawl is huge, it measures 78″ x 24.” I love the yarn, it holds it’s shape and drapes very nice. I will gift this to my niece and hopes she likes it.

What?!

Yes!!!!! I FINALLY got the “Meandering Vines Shawl” by Susanna IC in the blocking stage! OMG, I started this project for my niece on August 22, 2009! And to my shame, I finished knitting it ages ago, but was too haunted by the thought of blocking it! I had visions that the process would take hours; that I wouldn’t have enough pins; that I wouldn’t have adequate space to dry it; and the list went on and on!

My poor niece has been waiting and waiting……and so, I texted her this photo and she flipped when she saw it! So…stay tuned for the final photo reveal when the drying is complete.

Finally Finished!!

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

Whew! I have actually finished a knitting project! I know, I can’t believe it either! I have been so wonderfully distracted with my grandson, so I have a good excuse. So. This is the second “Flower Cardigan” (pattern by Susan B. Anderson) that I have done. This one is larger, a size 6, and I had to use another similar pattern to go by for instructions, because Susan’s largest size was 4. I added a second flower because the larger size looked kinda’ like it needed ‘more pizazz.’

Instead of making the matching hat, I think I will make a little purse with the flower on the front.

Lace Scarf…..Finished!

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Although I began and finished this scarf in 2010, I am just now getting around to posting the photos. This is the Haruha Scarf, a free pattern from: madebymyself.blogspot.com. It was a very easy pattern to follow for me, because as you know, me and lace have a love-hate relationship!

Again, I used a combo of cotton and mohair from my stash. It ended up 42″ x 7″. It is a birthday gift for a dear friend. My next project is to make another flower cardigan for a friend’s daughter, and then……it’s ON for making an unlimited amount of things for my precious grandson!!

Making Progress….

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

Cool! I’m making progress on the Haruha Scarf! It’s about 30″ long. I think I’m going to make it between 55-60″ in length. The chart is REALLY easy to follow now that I’m familiar with it…..piece of cake!

A Scarf for a Friend

Saturday, October 16th, 2010

I have put aside baby things for just a minute to knit one of my friends a scarf for her birthday. This is a free pattern is called “Haruha.” I am using size 7 needles and a blend of Omega Cotton Sinfonia and Super Kydd mohair/nylon from Elann.com. So far it is going well, considering I’m not an expert at lace knitting. The 12-row pattern/chart is easy because all rows on WS are purled! I hope this project doesn’t take too long, as I am sometimes really slow when it comes to knitting lace!
