Past Projects

New Year, New Knits (and old knits too…)

So update on a few things. Haven’t been knitting as much as I would like, because, well, life.

Things that are finished: 

Magdalen scarf/wrap! I ended up giving this one to my mother for Christmas 🙂 Now, I might make one for myself in a beautiful greyish/blue yarn that I got as a gift!

NEW PROJECTS… 

I’m all over the place with my knitting right now, but I was looking for something simple to knit over my Reading Week, so I decided to start with the back of this sweater:

QUADRILLION by Meaghan Fernandes (published in PomPom Magazine Issue No. 6 Autumn 2013)

quadrillion_5_medium2

I’m starting by knitting the back which is knit in a simple moss stitch because the front is quite complicated to knit with different cables and such (the chart is a bit intimidating).

Should be fun! Pix to come soon!

Madeleine Tosh socks DONE 

Well, I shamed myself into finishing at least one knitting project that I had on the go 🙂 🙂 🙂

past projects: first weaving

When I decided to learn how to weave several months ago, I found a great little hand loom on which to learn from Fringe Supply Co. It’s made of maple and it’s about the size of a medium-size picture frame (approx 7″ x 8″). It took me only a few hours to warp my loom and weave my first little wall hanging. Fringe Supply Co. also provides a GREAT little tutorial on their blog on how to get started, and it really helped me start my first project.

Despite a little bit of a rough ending taking it off the loom, I think this turned into a pretty good first attempt at weaving!

past projects: Brooklyn Tweed’s Adara sweater

One of my first completed sweater projects was Brooklyn Tweed’s Adara sweater. I knit this sweater in one month (still can’t believe that) using Cascade 220 yarn (worsted weight).
