Malabrigo tank

This tanktop I completed 2 weeks ago. It is made from three skeins of Malabrigo yarn. It is a sporty, cropped top meant to be worn over a t-shirt or long sleeve shirt. If anyone is interested in a pattern for it, let me know, since I didn't write one.

This yarn is very soft and cuddly.


Seva Vest - WIP

This is a work in-progress. I completed the Seva Vest (pattern from Knit Picks) over winter holidays then ripped out the sleeve edging as seen here. It looked like little fairy wings, jutting out of my body. It's going to be plain ribbing, as are the other edgings. As you can see on the back, my calculations were off. The pattern is supposed to go much further up the back. Oh well.

This vest's redeeming qualities: my first experience doing a crocheted steek, first time using this yarn Araucania (sp?), first time trying to read a Knit Picks. The pattern had some very annoying errors. I'm doubtful whether I'll purchase another pattern from there again.


Fair Isle Jazz - WIP

This scarf is from the pattern Fair Isle Jazz by Mags Kandis, published in the book Scarf Style.

All the yarn used is Mission Falls 1824 Wool BEFORE they shut down. I don't know when I'll ever get this finished. The raspberry part is so tedious. I guess I'm through with my short lace period, and reading charts that change every row.


Snowflake Vest - WIP

This is the back of a sweater I haven't written the pattern out yet. It will be a V-neck with little light brown cap sleeves. The yarn is Cascade Yarns Eco Wool, 2 skeins in 2 different colors. The stitch motif is from the book Knitting in the Old Way by Priscilla Gibson-Roberts.

I may have spent more time thinking about this project than actually knitting it.
