How ’bout the incredible entrelac shawl I just finished!

You can find the class at Creative Bug. The original pattern calls for holding two strands of yarn together throughout. I opted to just use one strand for a lighter garment. However, I did beef up the tassels, making them from 8 lengths of yarn instead of 6. Super pleased by how it turned out, I’ve gotten nothing but compliments and kudos!

With that done, I needed a little project to keep me occupied. These basket weave washcloths were the perfect thing.

For some reason I love knitted cotton, even though it’s more difficult to knit. I’m thinking my next challenge might just be a knitted cotton tank top.

Stay tuned…

Completed Knitting Projects

How cute is this hat? And fast to knit as well. Should I add a pom pom, or leave it as is? It’s just 2 inches of ribbed stitch and then 7 1/2 or 8 inches of seed stitch. It’s a bit slouchy and not overpoweringly hot to wear.

This scarf was done with self stripping yarn and came out sort of like a Navaho design since it was done on big needles. It’s all knit stitch, so again, super fast to knit.

I’ve been loving this scarf from afar for weeks so I finally made one. Warm and stylish to keep out the winter chills. It’s super easy to make with dk weight yarn and #9 needles.

Here’s an easy knitting project using one skein of Loops & Thread “Huge” yarn in color “Mountain”,  (love the color) knit in the round on #35 round needles. It’s super fast, super big and super warm!

Join in the round and keep knitting for 4 rows.

Make sure you leave enough yarn to bind off your stitches. Turn it inside out. Weave in the ends (I just used my fingers, didn’t even need a tapestry needle). That’s it.

Another Anthropologie catalog, another chance to magically find some rabbits. This time bunnies are leaping off the page in every direction. Who could guess you could find bunnies in wine glasses and chandeliers? It’s all in the way you frame it. Once you find an eye, the rest all follows.
