1 Jan 2016 – June 2017
This little cowl used the Buckhorn pattern and some alpaca/silk (I think) fingering-weight yarn I’d picked up somewhere along the way. I have no idea what it was, but it was travel knitting when I had none of my own yarn on hand and needed something small and simple. The pattern is easy and makes for a nice little project.
“Night at Niagara” handspun turned into an error-filled Lionberry scarf:
“2015 Blues” handspun turned into a simply massive “As the Crow Flies” stole. The thing is huge: 267xx89cm (105×35”). I kept knitting thinking I’d get to the end of my yarn–and never did.
Plus some leftovers which may get turned into a random weave. Sheesh. You’d think I’d learn. Clearly not. On the other hand, the stole has been handy at the office and is big enough to bundle into when the room gets chilled.
A small skein of uneven Malagbrio Nube handspun turned into an Infinitude cowl:
The “Calla Lily” handspun above turned into this “Whimsy Cowl”:
And the chocolate brown Polwarth fleece handspun finally turned into this Mondo Cable Cardigan:
The snaps are light leather and add zero weight to the fabric. I learned a lot in this project. It’s the first sweater I’ve done for myself, and the first raglan, and the first top down. I’m struggling with getting a tight enough fabric and generally have to go down a couple of needle sizes; I’m knitting far too loosely. But, I’ll work on it. In the meantime, I have a sweater—and have started another.
And finally, the “Sacre Bleu” handspun turned into this “Eyeblink” shawl:
