Recent Knitting Finishes
Thursday, March 26, 2015
Happy Thursday! I recently finished my first knit of 2015! I did a decent amount of knitting this winter, but it's been hard to get any photographs with the weather. When we finally got a nice warm day this past month I took the opportunity to take some photos of a few recent finishes!
First up, is my most recent finish, a Schwimmen hat. The pattern is from Shannon Cook and Jane Richmond's new mini collection, Seasonless Volume 1. I loved Shannon's Swift pattern, so I was excited to try out her hat pattern in this collection. I used Madelinetosh DK in Moonstone for this hat. I love the color and own it in a few (read: many) bases. It's the same color I used in my Daybreak. The lacework on this hat is really striking, but it did turn out a little big for me. I think next time I'd go down a needle size!
This project is for the Headgear knit-a-long for the Eat Sleep Knit Yarnathon! I'm participating again this year, and it's been lots of fun so far! I am on the Fleecy Foxes team!
Next, I finally finished up my Beatrice scarf. This pattern is by Jane Richmond, and I started it in November 2013, yikes! I used some Malabrigo Rasta in Azul Profundo from some frogged projects. It knits up super quick, but I put it down for a long time. It's super long, big, and cozy!
Finally, I knit an Autumn hat. Another Jane Richmond pattern! I wanted to make a hat to match the giant squishy cowl that I knit last winter. It was so cold last year, but I didn't end up needing this hat much this winter. I'm sure I'll need it at some point! I used Madelinetosh ASAP in Tern for this hat. It's super warm!
