Yikes, it’s already March (though you wouldn’t know it by the endless cold, grey weather here). New York Love Notes hasn’t gotten a lot of love or notes lately mostly because I’ve been doing writing elsewhere. 78 more words
The Gryffindor hat that started my current knitcrazy streak
I think this is the first hat. Self-drafted pattern-though the lace at the base was from a beanie in an interweave magazine.
The sweater as it existed at the beginning of November.
Finished sweater! Pattern from a book called Domiknitrix. The book is absolutely wonderful-has a lot of full color instructional photos on techniques as well as really fun funky patterns. Sleeve colorwork was a personal touch in response to running out of the main color and not being able to find more!
A quick little raglan sweater cranked out on my Ultimate Sweater machine-more as an experiment in knitting on the machine than anything. She has never wanted to wear it.
My first finished sock. My only finished sock. I got all excited about sock knitting and bought my first set of Addi circulars because of it…and never knit the second sock as Christmas knitting took over.
I was pretty proud of the heel work.
Another knitting machine experiment-fair isle on a stocking style hat. Self drafted fair isle chart drawn from bits I liked from other charts I found online.
A harley-quinn inspired scarf cranked out on the knitting machine-my husband actually did the bulk of the machine work because it was a gift for his secret santa. I knit the embellishments.
Thick woolly mitts for my dad who was a mechanic at the time and wanted a way to keep his giant hands warm but also be able to use his fingers while working.
