Took some handspun yarn on holiday and came up with a hat!
(It's a strange texture - this breed of wool knits up to feel a bit like a bath sponge...)

This is the second pair of socks I knitted from the free online class by Lucy Neatby on Craftsy, and I can't recommend it enough. It's a fun series of videos to watch and even if you've knitted socks before, there might still be some tips and tricks that will surprise you. Images below the cutCollapse )

Finished a big project - which has a story.
Made my partner a similar one back in 1998-1999 but in blue - it was worn in the tail-end of summer last year and went missing, so I embarked on making a new one - but different colour in case the old one turned up.
Partway through making the 2nd sleeve.... old blue turned up! (Two warm garments is good though - always a spare :) )
It's not the warmest spring here at the moment so it's already got a bit of use.

Back at the end of 2014 I was inspired to dye some merino/shetland sheep fleece using natural dyes and make some sock yarn. I then got distracted by many other projects.
However, I have finally finished the socks (now it's a bit too warm to wear them; typical!)
here be socks...Collapse )

I knit these socks as a gift for a friend, recovering from surgery.

I finally blocked this cute cardi. I scored the yarn at a thrift store for $4.50, so this was a super cheap knit. Photos here.Collapse )

I followed a pattern in an unofficial Harry Potter knitting patterns book, using some alpaca/silk handspun yarn.
Pleased with the result, not invisible but nice and lightweight!

I was fortunate to acquire a big bag of free yarn recently! First item made out of some of that is a colourful, chunky hat (no pattern used; made up as I went along).
As ever, the cardboard Princess Leia modelled it for me.

I knit this pullover in three days because I was just way too excited to see the finished product so I barely put it down. This slant shoulder buttoned sweater is a typical '50s style that was popular during that period.

The details are on my Ravelry page here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/lindapendante/wee-lima

I knit this scarf using a basic cables and lace pattern. It's soft and smooshy and matches everything. Yarn and needle details are here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/lindapendante/cables--lace-scarf (I can't brain a link anymore, sorry - I'm rusty!)

I knit this using leftover cotton yarn and developed my own pattern. I didn't expect to like the finished product as much as I do, so I'm going to knit a matching lap blanket at some point.

Has anyone else bought any of the new lines of yarn from Isaac Mizrahi? I've found them very inconsistent in their thickness. It goes from thick to very thin. Is anyone else having this issue?

Or,  how to achieve something without knowing what you're doing, mostly...or, how many mistakes can you make and still come out with a wearable item?

So this happened: I went to the Crafts faire (Handwerkbeurs) yesterday, and I came home with 20 skeins of sock yarn. They are so cute together, and they were only € 2,- per 50 gram skein and I couldn't resist. (Cold sheep is animal cruelty, after all.) continued under the cut.Collapse )

I do spinning. If I go to events where it's useful to demo stuff (but pack light) I spin on a spindle, and I like to work with pretty stuff. Alongside many other projects, I recently finished said on-and-off project and decided it deserved to be made into a gorgeous golden squishy scarf. And it's silk too :)

Is anyone else doing the free online sock knitting class on Craftsy?

Lucy Neatby has prepared three sock patterns and walks you through it in her lesson plan. It's free on Craftsy, you just need to sign up a free account in order to participate.

She calls out "so grab your needles and cast on" at some point, and well... you don't have to tell me twice! I'm half way down the leg section of the first sock. I've knitted socks before, but this class is great for anyone. If you can knit, purl, increase and decrease you can do a sock!
