Fulfilling Your Pattern Needs
Published by Shana | Filed under Knitting
Somehow, I skated past the holidays with almost no gift crafting. Selfish Knitters would be proud.
My sister got a pair of Snapdragon pop-tops that I contemplated keeping. I really liked them and loved the yarn. Ysolda is on my short list of favorite designers, and her patterns are really well written.
I have another skein of this yarn. I’m planning to make a lacy cowl out of it, using one of the charts from the Estonian Lace book. That is, if Amazon ever delivers it.
I’ve been wanting to make the Hemlock blanket for a while. I’d been thinking I’d make it for some baby, but somehow a hand-knit getting beat up bothers me more than a quilt gettting tattered. So I decided to make it for my other sister for her b-day. She’ll treat it well.
Finally, when snowed in over Christmas, I finally made my first Saartje booties. I have no idea how I’ve avoided making these for so long with all the tiny people entering my life. This went to my cousin’s new baby, Sophie.
This weekend will be something for me. I’m going to finish my Vine Yolk cardigan that I’ve been working on since November. Just in time for Spring…
