I'm slowly getting pictures of things for this page. Most of the stuff is made of handspun - if I don't say, then assume that I spun it! *g*
This is the Irish Diamond Shawl from the Interweave book "Folk Shawls". The yarn is sweater-weight - I wanted a nice, cushy, comfy shawl (You can see the yarn on the yarn page). You can't really see the colors, but it is looking a lot like a fair-isle sweater. Sweet!
Here it is in all it's glory:
I wish the camera had caught the colors better - it's a bit darker than this, and the colors are just beautiful!
And here's a close up of the lace patterning:
And here it is being worn:
This is the Victorian Aran Weight Shawl from Elann. The pattern called for (duh) Aran weight; I spun up some Chasing Rainbows silk Roving in laceweight - I wanted an elegant, dressy shawl. I entered it in the 2007 County Fair...and got Best in Category!
Here's my brother's dog, Speck, wearing the Dogasaurus Rex sweater by Patons.....the sweater turned out a wee bit short in the back, but he's still cute:
Here's the Sheep Sweater I did from North Island Yarns - I won the kit off of Ebay. The yarn was nice, but nothing special...one of these days I'll spin the yarn and do another one. It was my very first attempt at intarsia - not too bad. Wool is very forgiving!
Here's a shot of my first interpretation of the tractor sweater from Family Circle Easy Knitting - I substituted a different cotton yarn than what was called for. I also discovered I *hate* knitting cotton! I can't remember the yarn brand; it's lasted almost 2 years, though!
Here's a bunch of hats that I've done....I need to get started on this years hat collection, I think - we've had a cool summer.
We can't forget mittens, can we? Don't want our fingers to get cold while the rest of us is toasty warm!
As soon as I find Ian's mittens from 2003/4, I'll get them posted - they are made from the same yarn as his Irish Mists hat.
Here's scarves and shawls and misc. knitting. Some of this is stuff that doesn't fit any where else.
And, just for fun, I present: The Vegan Fox, from a pattern posted on Knitty back in early 2003 (I think!)...I ordered the yarn kit from them, because I just had to have one!
