Yarn: Lana Grossa Meilenweit colortweed
Notes: Fun! I love the laciness, and it looks great with a striped yarn IMHO.
Three different scarves, using the Entrelac technique.
Yarn: 3 skeins Noro Silk Garden
Needles: US #8 Bamboo straight needles
Pattern notes: Cast on 18 stitches, and use 6 stitches per triangle.
More Noro! Now I find myself with single skeins of Noro Kureyon, and found a great pattern for beanies. This was a great quick knit, and a wonderful way to show off the beautiful colors in this yarn.
Pattern was based on Kureyon Skull Cap
Yarn: 1 skein of Noro Kureyon
Needles: US #9 and #10 circulars and #10 dpns
Notes: I did this pattern in the round rather than knit flat. I also did not want to do the crocheted edge, so I increased the number of rows in the straight stretch from 11 to 18.
Two-Movie HatPattern: Two Movie Hat
Yarn: Encore Plymouth, one 100g skein each of grey, brown, and charcoal
Needles: #6 circulars and #6 dpns
Notes: This was a bit loose for an adult head. For the boy's pattern, I modified the pattern as follows: Use US #4 needles, and cast on 76 stitches. On row 8, increase by one more than the pattern says. Knit straight for slightly more than 5 inches. Skip rows 31 and 32.
Mom's hat and scarf
Yarn: 1 skein of Schaefer Marjaana in Jane Addams color
Notes: I really loved My So Called Scarf! What a great way to show off a variegated yarn! This is a closeup of the stitch pattern:
Merry Christmas everyone!
More height, more snow!
If you look out the horizon, beyond the stretch of heaven that hovers below the peak, you can make out the peaks of the Blue Mountains.
To the right is the peak of the range, but let's just pretend this was as high as we could go.
My breath lay white on the tips of my hair like the snow and frost on this lonely pine.
