This is my Wurm hat. I loved the pattern so much for the neckwarmer that I decided to go ahead and make the hat for myself. It's a deep purple/blue. The band is folded over and knitted together with the live stitches.
This is Elis, (Ravelery link because that's all I could find) being knitted with my handspun. I have been entranced by this stitch since I first saw it in a class put on by my knitting guild. After this section with the Indian Cross stitch, I knit stockinette stitch for a while, then add another section of the Indian cross stitch. Then repeat, making it as wide as you wish. I like it a lot.
This is Topiary - about 4 feet long at this point, which is the half way point. Yippee! I made my Iknitarod goal!
ETA I ripped this back last night and started again using a larger needle. I thought the fabric was a bit stiff. I am much happier now.
Bob's sweater is still growing, though slowly. It's my pattern. What do you think?
The Swirl sweater is also growing, though not as fast as when I first started it. I estimate that I will finish it in time for vacation in September. The yarn is lovely to work with.
This is my newest project. So far I really like it. It's a test knit for Erica Gunn at Designknit and is the start of a Spiral Shawl. Go to her website to see her version. This start was on size 1.5 needles but I ripped after a while because the gauge wasn't right. I am now on size 3 needles and it's just right. I have about 4 inches knitted. I am using Knit Picks bare lace weight, dyed by me 2 years ago. I used deep green dye with resist in some areas, which I then removed and just barely dipped the yarn into the same dye to avoid white spots in the yarn.
This is the garden. Bob and eldest son roto-tilled on Thursday. Now we have furrows dug and I'll be planting soon. I'll start the seeds and if it freezes and kills them, I'll just plant more. ; )
