It’s sure been a while, hasn’t it?! I’ve been hard at work over on the Stash Blog doing a sweater knitting tutorial series for our upcoming knit-along. We’ve also had family visiting and Seth ran his first 100-mile race a few weekends ago. Of course, I’ve been knitting lots and have several things to show you! I’d like to get back to this space on a more regular basis now that summer is winding down and we’re more or less back in our normal routine.
Pattern: Fine Fella Hat by Irish Girlie Knits
Yarn: Swans Island Worsted
Modifications: None! This was a sample knit for Stash. Fabulous pattern and amazing yarn!
Pattern: Krummholz by Melissa LaBarre
Yarn: The Fibre Co. Road to China
Modifications: I completely forgot to change to a larger needle for the hat, but it worked out just fine since I love the way it fits!
Pattern: Urban by Veera Valimaki
Yarn: Astral Bath Yarns Nebula in Sagittarius (the lovely Ridgely sent this to me in a swap!)
Modifications: I shameless used another knitter’s amazing modifications to change the neckline/top a bit. I also used my own measurements for waist shaping.
Another shot of Urban…fun buttons on the shoulders
I have a couple of more projects to share, but I thought I’d save them for another post! It’s good to be back to the blog…
