What's On and Off the Needles

Some finished projects, some slog-alongs to finally get out of my project basket.

I experimented with some designing this week. I had started another mindless one-row-lace scarf using Noro Kureyon sock yarn. I finished using half the ball, and thought humn...I've seen scarves made into vests, let's give that a try. Turned out pretty cute. Currently using a pin to close it, I may make a tie later.


I was working on a lace shawl with the body constructed of a honeycomb lace, and a cool zigzag lace edging. Disaster struck, I tried a repair, and I just ended up with a huge hole. Put the project in time-out for a few days, and then ripped back to the honeycomb and just did a simple picot edging instead of the lace border. Sometimes you just have to cut your losses.



A boring scarf for Larry's tan jacket.


In the works:

A blanket for Dan. This is going to be a slog--miles and miles of garter stitch, binding off and picking up stitches. It's my tv knitting, hope to finish by Thanksgiving.


Purple crescent-shaped shawl with lace edging. Still working on the body, will hopefully start the lace in a few days.


It's been too warm to work on this sweater, but I do want to finish the sleeves so I can wear it this Fall.


Going to wind up this skein of red merino-silk for a lace shawl to take on the plane to California.

Amy, you are so talented, I don't know how you do it. Everything looks beautiful, even Larry's "boring" scarf.
