I was able to repair this afghan for a customer. Her mother knit this beauty almost forty years ago.
This is kind of cheating but my friend Jen C is a wee irresponsible. This is the third beanie I have knit for her. Same color, same yarn, same everything. Silly lady.
This week marks a new season of knitting classes. And boy oh boy do we ever have a full schedule. Monday nights are socks, Tuesday is new knitters, Thursday is reserved for hats, and Saturdays we relax for knitting group. Love it! To celebrate we got a fresh batch of super bulky yarn in. The first photo is of Malabrigo Rasta and the second is Cascade Magnum. Sooooooooo pretty!
Here is the Super Baktus but smaller. Same pattern, same yarn just scaled WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY back. Also sometimes Mabel the kitty likes the help!
I knit the Super Baktus in the lace version while on vacation in Los Angeles. You can find the pattern on Ravelry. I used Cascade Ecological Wool in three colors to achieve the color gradiation. It got a little big and is now a cross between a cape and an afghan. It definitely makes a statement!
This was my only hand knit Christmas gift and it was given to the beard’s mom. Her and her husband recently purchased a cabin in northern Minnesota and this will go perfectly with their decor.
This year I knit a handful of tiny Christmas stockings for tree decorations. Here is an example. Available for commission, $15.
I entered these three items into the Iowa State Fair Fabric and Threads competition this year. As you can see my cardigan received a pink ribbon! It is always exciting to see your work displayed but even more exciting when there is a ribbon attached!
These cat ears were knit for a special little lady’s Halloween costume.
