To keep myself on track knitting wise I thought I would do an update each Saturday on what I'm currently working on or finished.
I finished one of two of these fingerless mitts. They are called Namaste Mitts and I bought them as part of a kit here on etsy. They fit incredibly awesome and are really fun to make. I have a couple of other projects I'm working on so these have taken a bit of a back seat but I definitely will be getting to the second one soon.
I also recently finished this slouchy hat/beret. Pattern can be found here. It ended up being a bit big which is good but bad.
It's really slouchy like I wanted but doesn't really fit at the ribbing. I haven't done it yet but I plan on buying some of those small, plastic hair combs and sew two of them in the ribbing so I can still have my slouchy hat and have it stay in place.
The newest project I'm working on, which I started yesterday, is a blanket that will be made out of sock yarn. It's called a Barn Raising Quilt and is a pattern from this book. It's basically a bunch of 7-7 1/2 inch squares knitted out of sock yarn scraps. Of course I'm not knitting mine out of scraps and am doing it in a rainbow type pattern. This block I'm working on will have an orange center and then red around it. I just started the red so it's kind of hard to see.
Get thee to an independent bookstore.
