I bought this kit at my LYS. I've put off making a market bag, but have to say I really do like this project. The yarn is very stretchy and the bag is deceptively roomy.
Here's a hat I actually finished last summer. I made it for a March birthday and thought I should post it before I gift it.
While I am much more happy knitting, I have crocheted for many, many years. Occasionally, I get the urge to bring out the crochet hook and brush up on my skills.
I'm smitten with this pattern. I've finished two and am on my third.
I have had it with never being able to find needles for a new project that I know I own. A few weeks ago I began sorting through and attempting to better organize my stash.
Here's are some shots of the Celtic Cable Beanie from "Son of a Stitch 'n Bitch" I just finished up for my neighbor's birthday. At first I swore (a lot) and vowed never to knit it again, but after some froggin' and a little practice, I caught on and have decided I would knit this hat again.
I used Mission Falls 1824 Wool, which is a nice 100% merino superwash, but I think I'll try something that's less slippery next time. Other than that, I'm very pleased with how it turned out. I believe the birthday boy (man actually) will be quite happy with his gift.
Here's the beginning of a scarf I'm knitting to give to my mom for Christmas.
Just finished an afghan I started last spring. I haven't been working on it consistently, but finally got to a point where I just had to put all other projects aside until this was finished.
I'm traveling to Aitkin, MN for the next two months. It's about 2 1/2 hours from the twin cities. I was wondering if anyone know of any LYS in the surrounding area?
I went to a LYS in the Minneapolis area yesterday and began a hat. I finished it up today. I purchased some of this yarn because I liked the color and after knitting with it, I had to have more.
