A little bit of fluff to show… Based on the Gno Fun Like Gnome Fun pattern with random bits of this and that. Making progress in Starflanket… 4’ diameter, shown. Now that I’ve finished the brioche, I’m back to striping blue/grey/green, doing short rows in the blue and green sections to add back the star […]
It looks like I’m having fun with this…SMH. Thinking about March….leprechaun….green….hmmm. Working the brioche section of Starflanket with colors A and B….feels like it is taking forever. Each round is 576 stitches…so completing the two passes is O.M.G. 1152 stitches……what? Next challenge will be after the short rows to add back the points to the […]
The brioche section’s inc/dec for the star’s ‘peaks and valleys’ was just too open. So….knit rip knit rip…..redesigned….alternating colors C and D, created short row sections to even out the circle. With color C or D, pick up stitches from one point to the next so RS maintains k stitches, initial sections requires an additional […]
January gnomes are finished and so much fun! Taller gnome has 4 beads at the point of the hat and a crocheted snowflake decoration. Smaller gnome’s hat is missing the two duplicate pattern repeats, braids instead of a beard and joined hands. Thinking about February….
Winter’s arrival gives me more knitting time! I’m a knitter, I’ve trained for this….so true! January Gnome #2 has half a hat! Mike loves apple pie….proper crust to fruit ratio, of course – SMH. For someone who doesn’t cook he likes to be really opinionated about what he eats, I just roll my eyes! Baker […]
Small projects look like they knit sooo fast! Added 2 rounds of increases at p-rnd 3 and 6. I prefer a plump looking gnome 🙂 also, just purling the body. The cable pattern will be lost in this dark yarn.
My new start for 2022…Here We Gnome Again by Sarah Schira. Yes, the hat is fiddly. But, how cute? Ice blue acrylic of unknown origin seems a perfectly cold January color. The alternative is to work on my Starflanket which is in the naughty corner. I don’t like the way the inc/dec sections of the […]
Three finishes, and a first. The Bias Pink Shawl is yet another iteration of my standard recipe shawl…a wardrobe staple. CO3, inc up one side almost to desired length/yarn usage, change from stockinette to (yo,k2tog) just long enough so that yarn-chicken isn’t necessary to complete a stretchy BO. A lovely layer that will go with […]
Ankers Summer Top and Pink Ranunculas are done….woohoo! Sock are also done, the heels made perfect in the car knitting while waiting for M at an appointment. Bottom left is a beige silk/linen Cedar Pullover which has been frogged twice due to sizing issues. Who knew! I love the fabric and it should be loose […]
