12m/12p/12b Gloves

As soon as I saw the pattern for these gloves, I just knew I had to knit them, and I am very pleased with the result. I used Cleckheaton Cocoon in a boring tan, then dyed the glove a rich coffee brown afterward. Total yardage: 304 yards.

Glove knitting is addictive!

Finished for August 2010

These are Tidelines by Anne Hanson.. They were a fun easy knit.

Aug. Items Finished

I actually got two projects this month. Walk Through the Woods Kerchief, July's Woolgirl Sock Club. The yarn is from Knitted Wit. This was a fun pattern I had never worked one that went a different way. The Brandywine Shawl gave me an aah moment and I was able to finish this one.

I also finished Brandywine by Romi. Yarn from Zen Yrn Garden. Loved how this shawl turned out and I will make this again. Maybe it was working with merino cashmere I'm not for sure.

Well till next month, have fun knitting. Bye

More August

I forgot to include these crocheted ripple socks for the August Project.

More August Finishes

I finished two scarves. The green one was started in January and saved for times when I needed easy knitting. A shop hop trip with my guild provided the time for finishing. The yarn is Noro Matsuri. I also finished my Swiss Cheese scarf. This was a guild KAL, using a rayon blend cone yarn that I bought a long time ago because it was pretty.

My daughter asked for fingerless mitts for running, but she wanted her thumbs covered. The chosen yarn, which has purple in it, is Patons Stretch Cotton Socks. I then used Wool-Ease for short covers for cooler days. I figured that if she is running in even colder weather, she has something else to wear.

A new great grandson will be joining the family in September. He will get a new hat, since he can wear the sweater I knit for his sister. It looks like a tomato. The patter is Ann Norling's Fruit Hat pattern.

Final finish is a pair of Lucy Neatby's Fiesta Feet. They've been on my to-do list for years, and the challenge for the Ravelry SKA was stranded knitting. The feet of these are stranded. Last night someone counted up how many patterns there are on the socks (6). The woman is crazy, but I think we suspected as much.

I have shown in progress pictures for some of these (not the tomato, which was knit in one afternoon), but threw them up here anyway. I already have credit for an August finish. It was a good month for finishing.
