Two on Twos-day!

Well my finished Friday post didn’t pan out. So now I have a bonus finished project for you!

First up, my Rustic Autumn Shawl:

                IMAG0332

IMAG0343     IMAG0344

Well.. mine is not so autumn-y it is more summery with the rainbow yarn!

The details: This is a needle knit, the pattern can be found here: Click here

Yarn: Kauni Strikkfasthed 8/2

Colorway EQ

Bought at The Clay Purl in Nashville IN

Knit up on my Addi Turbos!!

I used exactly one ball of yarn, and had about 24” left over!! YES!! NO LEFTOVERS!

This was an easy knit, anyone who is a beginner with shawls should try this one out!

Love the pattern!! It was a fun knit!

Next up: Elisabeth’s Cowl from Wendy Knits Lace

IMAG0342

This is one of the introductory patterns in Wendy’s new book. An easy lace knit, even I didn’t make any mistakes on it!! Which is impressive!!

I have it pinned up on a piece of cardboard to block right now, I need to get some ‘action’ shots of these!

Yarn: Lion Brand Wool Ease. (not sure of the color it is variegated browns very pretty)

The pattern can be found in the book Wendy Knits Lace

This is also a needle knit, I am happy to say that this lace pattern is an easy one to do on  a knitting loom! No translation needed other than for a K2Tog, move your stitch to the right and for a SSK, move your stitch to the left!

And of course you want to keep your stitches LOOSE when working lace on a loom!

I have leftovers. Grr. It tool less yarn than the pattern called for.

I would definitely knit this one again it’s a nice easy fast knit. I made it in two evenings!

I will give it a try sometime soon on the loom!

I am playing with some small projects on a new loom, I will give you all some more information when I get a thumbs up from the loom maker!! So look for that soon!

Finished Friday: A Dress.. and a surprise!

First off check it out!!! I made this!! I get so delighted every time I finish something and it works out well!!

I love this cute little dress!! I danced around the room with it for like half an hour last night!! LOVE IT!!

Then the next day we got a call!! WOOT My sister in law  who had no indication of going into labor any time soon (and wasn’t happy about it) was at the hospital!!

The magic trick of finishing the baby knitting worked!!
