This weekend I finished up and blocked two sweaters I have been working on. The first one is made with Jamieson and Smith Shetland wool in a lovely heather plum colour.
I made some farmer socks for my brother-in-law out of Briggs and Little Tuffy and a pair of socks and a pair of mittens each for my sister and sister-in-law.
Visiting my friend in Canada. I knit this from Briggs and Little Regal from New Brunswick that was in my stash in Mexico. It turned out to fit perfectly and is a lovely colour.
Finished this vest about a week ago and got it washed and blocked. I used Palette yarn from Knitpicks and am really not a fan. I ordered a lot in this colour and in a grey.
Just finished the Flacon doily from the Yarnover site. I did it in an evening including the blocking. I used my mother's old recipe of sugar and water to starch it.
Made this shawl for my sister out of worsted weight and 8mm needles. I started at the top and included shoulder shaping and a gusset. It is nice and roomy and she tells me it stays on very well.
Just finished up two little sweaters for mi amigo Patricio. He just turned two years old.
I had enough Kroy of the same colour to make a vest. It is just the ticket for these cool mornings and evening. My own design with Paton's Kroy, 3.25 mm needles.
Exam supervision means extra socks. Although all knitting is saytisfying, there is something special about a pair of nice warm socks. Happy feet mean a happy me.
Jedward led me to a site called Yarnover where I found this pattern. I used #6 cotton made here in Mexico and 3.25mm needles. It was a fun and fast project.
