I've been saving these up until I had enough for a mini spam. :) I've been knitting like a demon this (Southern Hemisphere) winter and I have a few things to show for it. Millions more photos at the relevant project pages ...

The design is Gail's Red Aran from the Twisted Sisters Knit Sweaters book.

The yarn is completely handspun by us, mostly Emma, but a little bit of mine in there, too. The colour is the natural colour of the fleece, no dyes. Just a little wool wash to get the worst of the mud, sheep poo and lanolin out.

Also, I finished my Double Vision blanket, which I originally posted pics of in this post two years ago.

So here's a picture of one of the projects I currently have on needles! :) The yarn is Caron Simply Soft in a color called "Baby Brights Ombre." It's very springlike and light in color, as you can see. This will eventually - hopefully - be an oversized sweater for my mom. I can't guarantee that it'll turn out, because it's the first time I've made anything with sleeves, and I'm not actually following a pattern because really, why would I do that? :) The bottom is ribbed, as you can see, in k2 p2, and the rest is stockinette stitch.

As long as I'm here, though, I have a question for you all. I've apparently dropped a stitch or something in one spot, and then I guess picked it back up again in the next row, because I have a very neat little hole that looks like this:

Any suggestions on how to fix that? (Other than cover it with an applique, which is what I did on my frog bag LOL.)

Also, you guys need to post some pics! I want to see what you all are doing!!!!

Hello! I'm new, and here is a photo of the scarf I am currently working on. This is the first item I have made with ribbing that has turned out successful!

Just wanted to post a brag picture of my in-progress Double Vision.


As you can probably see, all I’ve retained is the colour blends. The technique is completely different. Each square is knitted from the outside in, and joined by picking up and knitting stitches of previously completed squares during the cast on. I admit that I’m using this technique because I HATE making up, and the idea of sewing up at the end of knitting made me shudder. This way, all I have to do is weave in the ends.

The yarn is Moda Vera Wisp, a synthetic polar fleece style yarn with a sparkle. I chose this yarn because I liked it, and because I simply couldn’t find the purple used in the top left corner in any other Australian yarn and still have a full spectrum. It seemed to be one or the other!

Each square is sixteen stitches per side, knitted on five 5mm DPNs or a circular needle (magic loop). This way, all of my squares are indeed squares, without the need for worrying about gauge or measuring. I’ll finish the outside edge with a crochet border in black when I’m done, just to neaten it and disguise any unevenness.

The last project I finished was that cat bed that took me two months to make. And it was all red and brown and orange, so by the time I got done with it, I was all "OMG I NEED COLORS! And something I can finish inside of a month!" I took a shine to the Taos Felted Slipper Socks while I was looking around on Ravelry. And I had a skein or two of Taos in that brown/turquoise colorway I always like until I get it home lying around, so bonus! Then I went out to my LYS to find another color to twine with it, and I end up picking the two shades of Jaspe Wool that meant I would be knitting with all the colors in the world.

I have been horribly amiss at posting here! I comment and coo, but I haven't posted hardly anything. So, welcome to the wrap-up catch-up knitty pics post!

it's all behind the cut tag )

All caught up! I'm not a speedy knitter, haha. There's a sock on the needle now, but no pictures until it's done.

This one is called "198 Yards of Heaven". I, erm, was dared to make it. I dared [personal profile] kniteracy to make one over the weekend; then I realised I'd just been given some wool of about the right weight for one, and printed off the pattern and tucked them away together, and then she dared me back. I finished mine at 2.30pm yesterday, having cast on late Friday afternoon; she had a few more things to concentrate on over the weekend, but will almost certainly have finished it by tomorrow.

Here be pictures! )

I went through a thing in college of making Kitty Pi's (pis? Pies?) for people as catwarming gifts. I graduated over four years ago. The bed my cat has now is the crappy first Kitty Pi I made for my old cat, and it's looking a little sorry. I also had a bunch of Berroco Jasper to use up and thought that it would look cool in the dotty pattern. I just finished the goddamned thing earlier today. My earliest pictures of it are dated October 18.

I'm working on a pair of long gloves in Mirasol Tupa, which is a 50/50 silk and Merino wool blend. No real pattern, I'm just making it up as I go along.

And I am never satisfied with what I am knitting when I could pick at what I might do instead. )
