Up to Something

Posted in Finished Objects, In Progress at 7:54 pm by merknits

I thought that instead of only posting when I have something done, I should probably let you in on my current projects.  Makes things a little more interesting, I hope!  First, the Phyllo Yoked Pullover from Knitting Nature:

Not the most exciting WIP to look at, let alone to knit.  Though I am enjoying knitting with Calmer – it’s so soft and squishy!  I’ve modified it to knit in the round and am inching closer and closer to the interesting pattern at the yoke.

Also on the needles, Muir from Knitty:

Not much to see so far, but I’m enjoying my new Knit Picks wooden needles  and nifty chart holder.  They’re both making the pattern so much easier!

I guess this post can’t all be about WIPs, because I have a finished object!

Pattern: Kim’s Hats from Last Minute Knitted Gifts
Yarn: Mission Falls 1824 Wool
Notes:  Someone in my husband’s family, who shall remain nameless, has been bugging me for a hat.  Constantly.  So I caved and whipped this one up in just a little over a day.  Cute, huh?  If I were to do it again, I would move the checkerboard pattern down farther, but I had already ripped out the whole hat once and wasn’t about to do it again!  And I don’t feel bad giving this away as a gift, because it makes me look like I don’t have any hair:
