I've been knitting a bit since the New Year , although you'd never know it from my blog or Ravelry - I just haven't been in a picture taking mood, but tonight on my way home, I picked up some ribbon to put the finishing touches on something I had just finished knitting.
This wee wonder is knit from Sandnes Garn's Eskimo, and the pattern is Purl Dreams from Heirloom Stitches. Before anyone starts thinking anythings up that I haven't told you ... it is for a friend of mine, not me!
I also liked the Cowled and frosty Morning pattern I knit for T so much that I knit 3 more cowls in smaller sizes for our 3 nephews.
These were knit from Patons Shetland Chunky, and I'm too lazy to get up and look for the ball bands, so I am guessing when I say barn red tweed and charcoal tweed for the colours. The kids got them as Valentine's presents, but really, they are intended to keep the boys all safe - scarves on kids are so dangerous, cowls are a bit less hazardous!
I also knit a few more dishcloths - but T deleted the pictures I had taken a week ago, and again - too lazy to get up and take another picture! I've knit 11 of the Grandmothers favorite pattern, and 2 in a feather and fan pattern from the ball band of one of the big 1 pound balls.
There's more too - just have to track it down (things like partially finished socks aren't very exciting, but that's what I've been working on!)
Anyhow -- I am off to gather the knitting needles, yarn and supplies that I'll need for the Kntting Olympics ... I am knitting the Cozy cabin cardigan in Noro Kureon (spelling?) in colour 172. Wish me luck :)
Let the Games begin (but not until I am ready!)
