Quick Caps and Slow Scarf, plus Socks

Posted by mtmom on June 15, 2008

Sorry, folks.  My computer’s been “sick”.  It’s still not all better, but I’m eager to post.

As usual, I’ve been working on several projects at once.  A few I finished up quickly. . . except for the ends.  3 chunky hats

Stash busting!  Two are Chenille Thick&Quick, variations on my (free) pattern “2 Chenille Caps” — see sidebar or Ravelry.  And one is WoolEase Thick&Quick in a basic top-down patternless cap with rolled brim.  That empties one whole storage bin — hurray!!!  (Now it can hold my yarn “blanks”, which I’m saving to dye up later.)  Here, the girls model the caps.  gray & blue chenille on Ktop of one cap

WoolEase T&Q on Ch

 gray on Ch

I also finished the Feitelson band of my Fair Isle sampler scarf . . .    Fair Isle motif by Ann Feitelson 

. . . and began the next — from “Autumn Colors Cardigan” in Sweaters from Camp.Autumn FI band

And (!!) cast on some socks for my mother who’s in the hospital in Houston — far, far away. 2 cuffs

These are “Madder Ribbed Socks” from Nancy Bush’s book, Knitting Vintage Socks.  Trying 2 different methods of keeping track of the uneven ribbing-rhythm: 2 – 1 – 6 – 1. . . .
