Sunday morning knitting

I am sitting on the couch with my teapot and my Sunday knitting listening to the cars on the wet roads outside. Ted has been a good sport listening to my podcasts with me, Knitting Pipeline and a new one NH Knits.  This sweater pattern is the Rhinebeck sweater from the book A Fine Fleece and the yarn is Knitpicks Wool of the Andes Tweed. The color is Flagstone Heather. I bought it for a different project, but fell in love with this cardigan when I saw a picture of it on Ravelry. I know I should be seaming the purple cabled pullover, but instead I would rather just do some mindless knitting.

I met a Knitter tonight

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:59 pm by dianelaces

I was at the Chamber of Commerce dinner tonight and a lady came up to me and commented on my Wingspan shawl!  We had a nice time talking about projects and I made my DH pull up his pant leg and show her the socks I knitted. It made my night!

Office decor

Just thought I would share some if my lace that I use to decorate my cubicle wall. I used to change it out, but these pieces have been hanging for quite a while.
The large black tatted butterfly was copied from a piece my mom picked up in an antique store. The small white swan is bobbin lace. The pattern is Schneeberger and I got it from Lisa Baumeister many years ago. The tatted penguin is my own design. The other tatted animals are from Jane Eborall’s website. I especially love the flamingo and the giraffe.

Puerperium cardigan

Started this little baby sweater last night while The Boy was at the homecoming dance. It is so fun to knit I can’t put it down! The newborn size is a free pattern but I’m tempted to spring for the pay pattern to get more sizes. I can see myself knitting this one a lot. Hope Marisa will like it!

Suddenly I find myself with quite a few knitting projects.  Yesterday was cool, not even sweater weather but coat weather! I really want to start wearing my sweaters. I have a new one for myself that just needs to be sewn together and the neck band  knitted up. If I can put this baby sweater down long enough maybe I’ll get that done!

Tiny Pirate fan

Look at this little cutie! Doesn’t she look like she is ready for the football game tonight? This is the Little Coffee Bean sweater that I knit when she was born last December to my friend at work. She was able to wear it a little bit in the spring before it got warm and it still looks good on her this fall.

Good day for a shawl

It was a cool morning so I decided to wear my Orenburg shawl. I finished it in April but never took a photograph. The pattern came from piecework magazine 2011 and it was called a snowflake scarf. I wanted to knit a stole so I made the scarf pattern 3 repeats wide. It is one of my favorite knitting projects I’ve ever made.

Blocking

Love my new blocking wires. The gold Wingspan shawl has been finished for months but never blocked. The snowflake lace scarf is going to be grafted into an infinity scarf but I wanted to block it first. I want to wash and block all my scarves and shawls so they are ready for fall wearing.

Totally addictive knitting

This is my sock yarn blanket. Hard to believe these are leftovers from projects I have knit. Most are socks, some are scarves or shawls. This is just going to be lap blanket sized but I love it already.

Baby blanket delivered

Posted in Knitting at 5:52 am by dianelaces

I thought Amy was going to deliver before I got this blanket to her!  I’m pleased with it, I think she likes it.

It ended up being about 36 x 38″.  I’m going to miss having it on my lap.
