The summer is over, the kids are at school and I’ve got me some knit time!!
I have been a bit busy over the summer months. I started a knit/crochet group that meets here in The Colony, TX at our local Super Target in the Starbucks. We meet every other Wed and as there is just three of us, but hopefully we will get more people in and can meet each week.
I have also finished a few projects.
One would be a patter that I’m working on for the “La Push Hat” based off the one that Bella wears in Twilight. I really hated the hat and swear that I would never make it so I just had to. I saw what was out there and not one of them, that I could find, even looked close to her hat, so I made my own.
This one is made with a bulky weight wool yarn and I think it’s too much so I made another one with reg worsted weight wool.
This one isn’t blocked yet, it’d drying now, once it is I’ll post that picture and pattern.
This one is called the Inga’s Haekelbeutel. Easy granny squares that are put together to make this cute purse.
I’m also making some things for the PTA Craft Fair again this year. I’m making, with scrap yarn, (yeah me!) some Tic Tic Toe boards.
This is another one that I need to get the pattern written up for.
I have a few other things on my needles now, one is a V-neck vest for hubby. I’m taking a cable pattern that I found posted one Ravelry and using it for his vest. I haven’t gotten a picture of that and may frog it and try to make it in the round. Vogue Knitting has a great article by Jared Flood (designer of the Koolhass hat ) about making any flat knit pattern into a seamless pattern. This is a two part article, part one is out now in the Fall 2009 mag, and part two will be out next month, Winter 2009.
I’m also working on Mr. Greenjeans for my self. I’m about half done and just need to get going again. I’m using up some stash yarn that I found at the local re-sale shop. (yeah for me again!)
I’ll be back when I have more!
