New Knitting

I have lots of fun new knits to share!

First off, Feather and fan shrug for brother in law's wedding. It was really supposed to be a stole, but I ran out of time. I was seaming in the pew before the wedding started. I really like how it turned out, but I think I would prefer a stole. Maybe after a little break I'll hop back on that horse.

Pattern: Feather and fan three repeats
Yarn: Knit Picks main line wool and cotton in dusky lavender
Needles: US 11

Next up is a hat I made for my wonderful friend Rebecca. I absolutely love the color and hope she does too. The entire time I was making this all I could think about was how great a ribbed turtle neck in this yarn would look (on me specifically). I loved the pattern, but had a little trouble with the grafting (it was my first try).

Pattern: Coronet from Knitty
Yarn: Brown Sheep Bulky in Chianti
Needles: US 10.5

Baby hats for my cousins baby! First ever baby project. Boy are these things small! I made one a little bigger so hopefully at least one will fit. I tried grafting again, and this time I actually got it to work!

Yarn: Knit Picks Swish superwash
Needles: US 7

Last but hopefully not least, a scarf for my friend Marissa. I wanted to make her a pretty scarf to wear in sunny San Diego. It's not as soft and drapey as I would have liked but hopefully it will soften up in time. I guess this just means I will have to make Marissa another scarf sometime!

Pattern: Vogue Stitchionary 1 #172 alternating diagonals
Yarn: Sugar n Cream in Jeans
Needles: US 7

And a beautiful scarf it is! I love it Aimee -- thank you! And would you believe it? It's actually getting cold in San Diego! I hope it snows...
