Beautiful Knitting

Where Mt.Mom knits, crochets, designs, and seeks Beauty as food for the soul.

Something Else . . . NOT Level 2

Posted by mtmom on May 10, 2009

I *have* been knitting things besides my Master Knitter resubmissions; today I’ll write a bit about those.  These are all pattern-less projects.

I finished the knitting portion of the Felted Hobo Bag — last piece was the handle.  hobo handle

“Poems”, a 100% wool singles by Wisdom Yarns,

on US size 9 needles,

hand-felted by myself and youngest DD.

And I’ve added another tier to my Noro Matsuri (cotton/wool blend) entrelac shawl.  It’s about 15″ across the top now.Noro shawl

I’ve even gotten back to my Fair Isle Sampler Scarf.  Finished the last few rows of a St. John’s Cross motif in Noro sock yarn over various neutral background colors: cream, grey, fawn, and cream again, while the Noro self-changed from blue to purple to red-violet to green and finally to yellow.  FI Noro

For a while, I was “blocked” on this one

— perhaps overwhelmed by thinking about testing color schemes for a Level 3 sweater

— but I’ve switched tracks and gone back to another idea for a next pattern band.

.

For some time, I’ve been wanting to try out some Kaffe Fasset stripe “patterns”.

These he calls “Korean” stripes. . . FI Korean. . .  wide bands of pale neutrals separated by a handful of single-row stripes.  This first neutral I dyed myself with (decaf) black tea.

Tomorrow, I hope to get back to Level 2 cables, then collar pick-up, then . . . DONE!  (Lord willing!)
