So my friend, Melanie, and I had a knitting weekend this past weekend and I thought I'd post pictures of what I accomplished. OK, I didn't actually finish anything, but I did start several new projects. For those of you who are knitters, this is a very exciting thing. Here are the new projects I started this weekend:
I started this sweater vest this weekend with yarn from Knitpicks. When I ordered this yarn, I thought it was a slightly lighter color, but I'm liking the color now. Here's the pattern I'm using from knitty.com.
OK, you can't really tell yet what this is, but it will be what's called a fichu. It uses laceweight yarn that I got at the Cultured Purl this weekend. And because of that, it will be hard to see any progress until I actually get to the lacy bit. I got the pattern from my Victorian Lace book so I can't show you the photo of the finished pattern. You'll just have to stay tuned!
This is a sock I started with more yarn from Knitpicks. Of course, you can't tell from the picture, but the yarn is very soft. And I love the self-striping bit.
This is another sock that I started a long time ago. I worked on it for a bit this weekend.
Here is another sweater vest I started awhile ago. This yarn is part of my "Christmas" yarn that hubby bought me this year, also from Knitpicks. I really like the tweed pattern, but that makes it slow-going.
Here is my very first felting project. Once finished, it will be a felted Coffee Press Cozy. I hope it turns out good and that I don't have to agitate it in a big bucket with a plunger. :-)
Here is the last project I will write about. It will be a market bag, made out of the miles of cotton yarn that I have lying around.
So, there's an update on most of my WIP's. Well, at least the ones I actively worked on this past weekend.
