yeah, baby, a little fiber for your viewing pleasure. this is not a knitting blog, but it is a me blog, and i knit, so there you go. for some real good knit blogs, see my sidebar under yarn.
some finished and almost-finished works:
my so-called scarf, made for my mother-in-law. i owe her a matching hat, but my yarn seems to be on serious back order at Webs. Malabrigo in Continental Blue. yum.
my so-called scarf, por moi. Catalina baby alpaca in Coral Melange. I LOVE THIS YARN. softy soft soft and gorgeous color. totally edible.
sophie purse, pre-felted. not for lack of trying. first felting attempt ended in well, no felting. five pairs of jeans in with this baby (which was in a pillowcase), and nada. zip. zilch. zero. i’m skipping the pillowcase next time & just using a lingerie bag. it should be noted that i am using a front-loader as i love in an apt building. yarn: Malabrigo in Brownberries. (yes, i like me some Malabrigo).
caloriemetry. Art Yarns supermerino in a pinky-brownie-creamy colorway. next time: bigger yarn, bigger needles and fewer repeats. great idea tho.
swing thing, via MagKnits. a total beast. this has taken me forever and it still needs buttons. but so cute! now i’ve just got to get miss thing to wear it.
so there you have it. several things are also on the needles: poncho for a friend in red debbie bliss donegal tweed (it’s coming, sta, i promise!); poncho for miss thing in a berroco yarn that i can’t remember right now, in gorgeous blues/purples/sea greens; and my first socks (terror!), for the T-man. for all you knit-heads, all the above patterns are on ravelry or just google them!
