I thought it would be a good time to update my Rav page with my works-in-progress.
Here they are!
|I purchased the yarn for the Floyd vest by Martin Storey. It's for my son's BD in September, so not a big hurry right now. He's crazy over this one. Me too. It will be perfect for San Francisco weather and will look great with jeans.|
|Phoebe is a test knit that is due the end of this month, so this will get a lot of attention this next week. I had some ancient, but very lovely Rowan Scottish Tweed Aran in my stash. I've been saving it for the perfect project, and think this is it.|
|I know two "all boy" families who are welcoming baby girls this summer. Clara has been on my to-do list for ages. It's a sweet and easy knit, a lot of fun and is lovely in machine washable Rowan Wool/Cotton 4 Ply in Misty.|
|I've always wanted to try Fine by Spud and Chole, machine washable in the palest pink. It will be an owl sweater for a wee girl.|
|I've got just the sleeves to finish on this Martin Storey pullover using Rowan Summerlite 4 Ply in Navy Ink.|
|By the door I keep my two travel projects, my "grab and goes". The one on the left is a smooshy garter lap blanket I knit in the movies in a discontinued Alchemy DK. Our movie theater has been fitted out with luxury recliner seats, every seat in every theater! It's heaven! We go to the movies most Monday afternoons and need something I can touch knit in the dark. On the right is a pi shawl for my car and plane knitting using Handmaiden Casbah Sock.|
|My most popular post, and the one that still gets 200 plus hits a day, is an old one: The Totally Free, Totally Adorable Baby Cardigan. It seems that everyone likes to make these little freebie sweaters. Here I've gathered up whites, blues and grays in worsted, dk and fingering weights and going to once and for all write my patterns down. The patterns will be free when I get this project done, just wish me luck!|
|This is a total experiment in the works. I have an easy summer poncho in mind, so giving it a go with Rowan Pure Linen. If it works out, I'll write up the pattern and offer it here for free. I need a bit of luck and patience.|
|Lastly, mother and I are knitting the Crackerjack scarf in support of the San Francisco Giants. You can read about that project here. No matter what team you root for, this will be a fun project for sure. Join us! Opening day is today, and we're watching the first game right now. We will start our first stripe tomorrow. PS, I'm talking about baseball ;)|
