Lots-o-knitting

Just showing you finished objects today - will write a lot more about the Memories of Maine cardigan soon. I want to tell you how I went about turning this 51-inch cardigan into a perfectly fitting 60-inch bust, 72-inch hips sweater.

But until then, look at all this stuff I've made!

Memories of Maine Cardigan, Marilyn King's aran knit made with the Harrisville Watershed I bought on vacation.




Tom's Sleeping Hat 2, a beautiful Mary Ann Stephens design made with Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, an ultra-soft yarn perfect for my beloved's bald head.


Elisbeth Headbands, a Celtic-cabled earwarmer from Bonne Marie Burns in Knit Picks Capra and Knit Picks Swish. This extra-quick knit takes only 70 yards of worsted yarn and about five hours to knit. Two of my friends are the lucky recipients.



I am officially done with my Christmas knitting and am now working on a vest for the Custom Fit Knitting at Large KAL - I've only just begun so I'll have more to say about this soon. I hope you'll join us - we're all knitting the sweater of our choice from Amy Herzog's new sweater software. You can either resize one of her designs or create your very own sweater. To learn more, visit our Custom Fit KAL topic on the KnittingatLarge Rav group.

I'm taking next week off work so hopefully I'll have some time to blog. I've been so busy at work this year - a real blessing - but not conducive to doing anything but work. Not fun but at least I'm making some money. :-)
