A new finished object—a felted bag!
This project was mostly done already, just needed a handle and more felting.
I used an “Embellish-Knit!” to make icord*, needle-felted it on, and then ran it through the washing machine.
Well, and the sewing machine. Just to be sure.
This was knit with the box bottom built in. Starting with a provisional cast-on, then backwards loops to increase, and joined in the round for easy color blocking.
*The “Embellish-Knit!” machine was originally purchased for the brain hat.
Will the summer solstice shawl be complete before the autumnal equinox?
Honey cowl the first, a little too small, was cast on with 160 stitches.
Honey cowl the second, a little too long, was cast on with 200 stitches.
This one was cast on with 180 stitches.
And the MadelineTosh in Filigree is beautiful. It’s 90 degrees outside, but I may need to wear it anyway.
Edited to add photo with alternate lighting.
I wound the yarn for this one on the way home from STITCHES. MadelineTosh Vintage (short skein) in tart.
Cast on 200 stitches on a size 5, 47 inch circular; turned out great.
Good color and fit for a sweet co-worker.
I was thrilled when I heard that my sister-in-law wanted a knit hat for her birthday. Even with the party a week away, I knew it would be enough time—hats are quick. I immediately departed to my favorite LYS and acquired an alpaca/wool blend in a neutral tone. Six and a half days later, it was wrapped and ready.
The Cabled Chapeau features a brim that posed some doubt during construction, but that worked out in the end.
Must-Have Cardigan is now in the time between from when the body is cast off and the sleeves are yet to be cast on.
It is a precarious time.
It is when it says, “does this sweater even need sleeves? maybe it’s a vest…” (but, yes, it does need sleeves.)
It also says, “maybe it is the wrong size” (but, there is still blocking, so anything is possible).
It feels as though it’s almost done, but there are another 100 rows to knit and more than 50% of the yarn awaits.
I think I’ll weave in the ends first.
