I suck at blogging. I tell myself that I’ll post and then I never do and I end up with oodles of stuff to share and then I feel like I can’t share new stuff until I’ve shared the old stuff and it’s a vicious cycle. Anyways, after that run on sentence, here are all my final’s week and christmas break FO’s in one big post.
An Urchin Beret I knit instead of studying. It looked foul on me so I gave it to Alyssa across the hall from me.
The pattern’s from an old issue of Knitty. It was my first time grafting. I got way too excited about learning that and didn’t have anywhere to share my excitement. That beret is the reason why I started this blog.
This was a christmas present for a friend. I think the pattern was called Jester? I found it one Ravelry.
This is a Chemo Cap for my dad.
It’s made from Debbie Bliss’s Aran Alpaca Silk. I used a 2×2 rib and added a cable I found in Barbara Walker’s A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns.
Next up is The Bold and Bulky Mini Cardi from Fitted Knits. This is the smallest size and it was a Birthday Present for a friend.
I used Lion Brand Thick and Quick.
Another Star Crossed Slouchy Beret. This was for my sister, Britta.
The yarn is Cascade 220 Heathers. I hated the color she picked out until I knitted it up. I wanted to keep it when I was done because it matched my dress.
I also crocheted another chemo cap for my dad but didn’t get a chance to take pictures before I left for school. I finished Vicki’s Ribbed Lace Shrug and my mom’s weird slipper socks but I forgot to take a photo before I gave them away. Oh! I also knitted some hilarious beaded crosses when Vicki and I were having a vampire movie because we got scared. It was extremely silly. Coming soon (hopefully): WIP pictures of my currect cardi project and a FO post of a hat and a cowl.
