I’m on a knitting streak. It must be the cooler weather… the temps are only in the low 90’s, brrrr! While knitting, it helps to set the a/c at 67F.
A hat to ward off cold ears:
Note the flower pin! (oh, and the hat does have multi-colored heathering but it’s not as brightly colored as this photo… I couldn’t fix it using the technology available to me… which is none but that’s another post) My own pattern… not that I wrote it down which is too bad because most hat patterns don’t fit me.
A camisole to ward off cold #######:
Do you recognize the pattern? It’s an Annie Modesett design, Bias Corset, from the Summer 2006 issue of Interweave Knits. I ran out of the dark blue yarn. I’m on a yarn diet so I didn’t buy more… that and I think it is discontinued which solves that problem anyway.**
A scarf to ward off a chilly neck:
I decreased the number of repeats on Clapotis so that it is a scarf instead of a wrap. I loved knitting this one as much as the last one I did… those drops really do make it a fun knit!
I have another project on the needles already…
**I’m probably going to rip out the corset… it’s too heavy with the silk/cotton yarn I substituted. I like the simplicity of the design but if I ever see a pattern with 2×2 rib across the back again, I’m burning it! Yarn forward, yard back, yarn forward, yarn back… over, and over, and over… you probably get the idea.
I am avoiding sewing. I am not sure but it could be because my machine is completely buried. And it could be that my machine has not been fun to sew on this summer… I need a new one. I wish I could justify buying one, it isn’t in the budget this year.
