1. Little Owl #2
You might recognize this pattern, as I recently finished knitting one of these little owls for my mom. One of her friends thought it was a real hoot (sorry... couldn't help myself), and so I'm making a second one for her. It just needs wings, feet, and stuffing. She requested it in green for St. Patrick's Day.
|Just call me Patty!|
This is a hat that I'm making for a friend of mine. He asked me oh-so-nicely to make it for him about 2 years ago, and I forgot all about it until my husband reminded me a week or so ago. I'm designing it to feature his nickname, "Moosejaw" in colorwork, along with a moose. I'm working it in Plymouth Sockotta yarn, which is a blend of cotton, wool, and nylon. It has, unfortunately, been discontinued.
|Don't worry, that's not the infamous "naughty moose."|
This sweater, which I'm making with Malabrigo Worsted in the Lola Gilet pattern, got put on the back burner when I was away over Thanksgiving and needed to sit down and make up a spreadsheet for the left front decreases. It was languishing in its project bag until this weekend, when I decided to take action. I feel so foolish now for letting it linger so long; it took me only a few minutes to work out the decrease spreadsheet, and not much longer than that to work up the 40-ish decrease rows. Worsted weight yarn on size 9 needles just flies by, as it turns out, especially when each row has so few stitches.
