Incidentally, I dug out this project on Pi Day to finish because of its shaping.
There was also this Takenoko stole [Rav project] that I purchased at Shall We Knit? in New Hamburg as a kit - before the LYS moved to Waterloo, ON. Repetitive scarf patterns bore me quickly, but the colour changes of the Noro did help and the pattern [pattern link] is lovely. It was my "I should grab something for the car and everything else right now is too big/beaded/complicated" project for a long time.
A beautiful lace design.
I love my finished sweater and in time I'll forget the great frustrations of knitting it.
I have become increasingly focused on knitting myself garments. I went for many years thinking garments were beyond me - which in retrospect is silly given the complexity of lace I was knitting.
After finishing February's lace top (which is now blocked and looks fantastic, if I may say so myself), I started a cotton top for myself. This is a Cumulus Tee. It was a fun and quick knit. I'm learning to appreciate the simplicity of large sections of stockinette.
|As comfy as PJ pants!|
|Evidence that I blocked the lace top. Now we need warm weather.|
What else? I whipped up this doll dress on St. Patty's Day. It was intended for twins' babies, but was a little too big. It fits on Abi's larger doll nicely.
I also finished a pair of Angularities Armwarmers for myself - to coordinate with Abi's. Technically I still need to seam them - today? - but for the purposes of the stashdown, only the knitting counts.
In total, I completed 5130yds of project knitting (not all of that knitting was this month!).
What I failed to complete was my sister's blanket. I did manage to put edges on most of the squares. The blanket is my nemesis. Every time I try to work on it, something goes wrong.
