Before the holidays, we had a secret santa at my work. Well, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a Mastering Colored Knitting book for my gift. I still in fact have no idea who gave this book to me! They won’t fess up, but when I finish my more intricate pattern I’ll send an email thanking/inquiring again. Anyways, I’ve been just practicing a few little projects and I love it. Just like most knitting techniques, I’m mad I didn’t learn this sooner. SO FUN.
The Winter of Craft
This winter I really let my inner-knitter out. (Like I let her out and let her run around the front yard waving knitting needles). It all started with a really funny ‘cute’ pet knit project book.
Oh it looks so adorable. Make this ‘firework-muffeling” hat for your pug – GET SUCKED IN.
A cat consumed by knitting.
A special keekee teepee complete with pink garland for extra fun!
The bean bag – his favorite thing I’ve ever knitted.
This was the seed stitch for the teepee and initially it was going to be a cowl for me, but I have too many cowls and not enough teepees.
My favorite sweater I made for him – it took 7 other sweaters to finally knit it to his exact shape and size. He hates it and will only wear it if it’s below 15 degrees F outside.
Leopold in his total armor. This project gave me the idea to make a knitted knights costume for him for halloween.
So those were a few of my projects – I also knitted many cowls, some cute smaller ‘for fun’ or pattern learning swatches. I’m thinking of getting a cache of cowls, scarves, and hats together for the upcoming fall/winter to sell or donate. Perhaps people would be interested in that?
