Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

    CeCe: Silky Wool

    Lucy in the Sky

FOs galore! Goals! Pointless prattle!

Posted by Amber on January 1, 2007

I cannot take a good photo to save my life lately. But I have three new FOs to share anyway:

Yarrow Rib Hat

Yarn: ArtYarns Supermerino, color #144Pattern: Yarrow Rib from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush. I cast on 102 stitches, worked it straight for about 9 inches, then decreased along six points. Mom seems to like it.

Chic Knits Felted Bucket Hat

Pattern: Felted Bucket Hat by Bonne Marie Burns (such great patterns!)
Yarn: Paton’s Classic Merino, one skein, and some change from a second.

Yes, it’s a different color from the first one. The sides of the first one felted together in the washing machine. I tried to hand felt #2, but after 40 minutes of swishing I tossed it in the washer with a dishrag strategically pinned inside. Worked much better than hand felting. My mom sewed the ribbon around the edge for me.

Amber’s Amazing Glottens

Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Super Glitz
Pattern: My own! [Coming soon]
Finished just before Giftmas. The caps are a little different (one is grafted shut, one is done with three needle bind off because I left my book with directions for grafting at home). I like both equally. They’re very warm and comfortable. I took them to a yarn shop near my mom’s house over break, and there was much fawning.

– – –

As for the knit goals from December:
Finish SuperSecret (a must, in time for Giftmas!) – Not done. Gave my mom a different sweater that I knit, but never wore (a little on the big side). In the process of frogging SuperSecret Marriah.

Seam something (Durrow, Cabled Hoodie) – Not done. I should give it up.

Finish one pair of socks – Not done. But at least I started a second sock

Do sleeves on Sort of Samus – DONE! Amazing, I know. I started Friday, and finished Sunday, with 3 hours to spare.

Freely succumb to Startitis after finals – Done! I started: Felted Bucket Hat (Done), Yarrow Hat (Done), Argosy (Frogged), Glottens (Done), Lucy In the Sky Cardi (IPG), Mountain Stream Scarf (Frogged)

Reorganize baskets and yarn closet – Not done. The yarn tried to attack my mom last night. Must knit faster

Next month, I will…
Start Lots of Sweaters! Especially Blue Montdale handspun from Baltimore. I’m thinking pull over with a little kangeroo pouch-pocket.
Start at least two projects with the one-off balls of yarn in the closet (socks, hats, mittens, something…)

Should be easy enough… right.

    I like the bucket hat! Is that a ribbon sewn onto the hat? The mittens/gloves also came out well!
