What have I been working on? A few small test knits for Anadiomena, test knitting for one of my patterns soon to be released, mitts for my dad and father-in-law, some other small gifts. Birthday season, for our family hits hard in October and doesn't end until the spring with one birthday in the summer.....
We also got our family photos done by a fantastic local guy : Michael Steingard. Totally awesome experience and if you live in and around this area, I HIGHLY recommend him. Heck, he was like part of the family :) Oh and if you are far away, he TRAVELS! Yes, folks, he will come to you; you can't beat that :D Please take a look at his blog; you will be glad that you did... We have a few sneak peak photos, so I will start with one of those...
Simplicity Triangular Shawl by Shui Kuen Kozinski in Noro Kureyon Sock and Knit Picks Palette "lipstick". This was A LOT of fun to knit and very easy too. Highly recommend this pattern. I use it as a scarf around my neck, but India is wearing it in the photos across her back so that you can see it better. Raveled here!
Another Baby Surprise Jacket , but done in stockinette instead of garter st. I used several colors of Knit Picks Shine Worsted. Lovely and soft! I knit this as gift for our friends expecting their second baby. they stopped by one evening and a few hours later their baby was born! Raveled here :)
"Veyla" Fingerless Mitts by Ysolda Teague in Knit Picks Palette "Edamame" & "Clover". The shawl is the Luna Moth Shawl by S.K. Kozinski in "Edamame". A gift for an aunt...Raveled here and here :)
Elizabeth Bonnet by Amber Perry in Elann Pegasus. This was a test knit and I love this pattern! This will be a gift but not sure to who yet; everyone seems to be having boys! Raveled here :)
"Camden" in Elann Peruvian Pure Alpaca. Very warm sweater! Great pattern too.....I did not have enough yarn to do the sleeves. Wish I did...they are very cool! Raveled here :)
"Blush" in Knit Picks Palette natural merino wool and Araucania worsted. Fun and easy to knit. I did add some waist shaping and made the armholes a little larger as per other Ravellers suggestions. Ravelled here!
"Dancing Crane" stole by S.K. Kozinski done in Elann baby cashmere in "Cashmere Blue". This is a gift fro my Aunt's 70th birthday. Below is the first one I did, for my mom, in Elann's silken kydd.
That is all for now. I have knit alot this year, mostly to learn new tricks and techniques but also for relaxation....I am allllll about relaxin'!
