FO: Trellis tank



This is from Interweave Knits Summer 2009. I couldn't get gauge so I just knit the smallest size and got what is probably an XL. It fits beautifully. The yarn is Cotlin. The red is less obnoxious in real life. I added a few inches to the length and as you see, added on. I wish I had added on in 4 darts around instead of at the side seams but it looks ok on.

WIP: Trellis tank


This is from Interweave knits. The yarn is KnitPicks cotlin. The color is really much prettier in real life. The first two skeins of cotlin had big issues - lots of poky crap, thin spots, knots... but the rest of the skeins have been perfect. You do get covered in small bits of fiber when you knit with it.

WIP: Peacock socks

This is one of the reticulated 4 stitch repeat patterns from Charlene Schurch's Sensational Knitted Socks. It's using essential/stroll in peacock and black. The colors are really much more vivid in real life, I can't take pictures worth a darn

long time no post - I seem to be doing more tracking of my knitting on Ravelry, but it's worth keeping a second copy so I'll post some things here.

This is Regia Galaxy. The yarn is nice to knit with but I really do hate the color. I need to get these bad boys shipped off. I've had them for a while.

Great pattern, found using Ravelry. This is Wool of the Andes in Hyacinth. It's a really intense deep purple, but my photography leaves something to be desired. I'm going to see if my husband will take a picture of it on my head. Of course finishing it means we have a 70F hot spell in the middle of February!

boy do I hate this color!
