I have a lot of FO’s that do not have pictures yet. But yesterday I managed to get some semi decent ones which is a miracle considering they were on an almost 1 year old who was busy playing in his play area!
First up is the Antler Hat by Tin Can Knits. I used Berroco Vintage in in 5117 Chambray. This was a nice and easy and quick knit which is just what I Needed this week! In fact, I enjoyed this knit so much, an Antler Cardigan popped onto my needles today in the leftover yarn from my husband’s Campfire sweater! The only problem with the pattern was a mistake in the decreases which was easy enough to deal with! I made the Child size and I think it fits his giant noggin wonderfully, with room to grow! Someone will be getting a matching hat for Christmas and in the off chance, this person reads my blog, I’m not saying who!
I also got a picture of the Sunnyside I made using Tanis Fiber Arts Blue Label in Midnight! I actually knit this in the summer, the majority of it while visiting my Dad and step mom in Nova Scotia. I procrastinated putting buttons on it but now here it is! The only problem I have with this sweater is that no matter how many times I sew up one of the armpit holes, it seems to always come back. One day, I suppose I will do it correctly.
Can you believe my baby is almost a year old?? I am going to miss this face lunging at me all day long when I am at work.
Why is it so hard to weave in the ends/sew on buttons/block my knitting?
I have a collection growing…
In August I have started and mostly finished a few things.
This is the cabled version of Sunnyside using Tanis Fiber Arts in the Blue Label colourway of Midnight. I think it is the 12-18 months size but of course I didn’t specify on Ravelry so I cannot guarantee it! I personally feel this colour is a bit darker than I was able to capture. All I have left to do is buy buttons, sew buttons, and weave in the ends. Unless someone can convince me otherwise, I will probably not block this.
Look familiar? If you’ve looked in my Ravelry projects, you may have noticed I did an ugly adult version for my husband (yep….matching father/son sweater!). Now that I’ve found a blog post that helped me so much with fair isle, I am going to actually rip back my husband’s sweater so I can redo the fair isle part. And maybe make it a touch longer since I’m doing that anyways! This sweater needs the ends woven in, the armpits attached, and the shawl collar attached.
I personally feel this looks like pink camo. I am NOT a fan of camo, especially pink camo but my daughter LOVES it. I am just finishing off the end of the first valence and then I will cast on in a beautiful purple for the bottom valence. I need to get an elastic to finish this one off.
Will I actually buy all the buttons and elastic I need this week???? I guess you’ll have to watch my ravelry project page to find out!
