Just finished a little matinee coat with the leftover shawl yarn you always forget how small they are!!
What an elegant little jacket! Beautifully knit. pf cpirse/
If your daughter-in-law doesn’t like it, she is an ungrateful witch. It is beautiful!
Thank you DiL is a darling and is usually very knitworthy
Wow! If she doesn’t like it she’s got no taste. Stunning work and I’m sure she should love it. The little jacket is precious too!
After all the beauty I’ve just seen this could be considered comic relief. I just sent these sox home on the feet of a very knitworthy young woman. She worked with my grandson who is on the Autism spectrum - he was diagnosed with Aspergers - to teach him to swim well enough to go on a class trip to Florida and swim with the dolphins. I should have had them done several years ago. It’s just a pair of plain vanilla socks, toe up knit to fit based on Lifestyle Socks and a gusseted flap style heel from one of Liat Gat’s patterns. Opal XL yarn (don’t know what color, I lost the label) on US 2.5 needles for a very tight stitch gauge.
Thank you GG, lovely socks - she must have been delighted!! Doesn’t matter how long it took, at least you got them finished ( says someone who gave up at her first attempt of vanilla socks!!)
Perfect socks, GG and very snazzy too. What a lovely gift for a good teacher. Hope the grandson enjoys every minute of the Florida trip!
Thanks. He did have a wonderful time. That was a few years ago. He’s now working on his HS diploma and AA degree at the community college. He’ll graduate next year. Time flies.
@notknittingknots Why did you give up and do you want to give it another go?
Welcome to KH!
What a stunning baby blanket. Just beautiful
Thanks! Pattern is from Leelee Knits.
Fairly easy as there are only 2 cable rows in the 8 rows of the pattern.
Recipient is having a girl but my daughter observed that she will be “awash in a sea of pink”.
So I opted for lilac.
Such a lovely blanket. I really like the lavender too.
This was my first major project. I have only knitted hats basically so far. It took me over a month but I finally finished socks for my son. I did two at a time toe up socks on magic loop. I used Drops Fabel yarn in turquoise color. I did a provisional cast on using a crochet hook. I did the toe part using the same pattern as Patty-Joy White’s (aka SoxTherapist) Fish Lips Kiss Heel. I used the same pattern for the heel of course. The pattern is for sale on Ravelry for $1. I studied and studied the information and didn’t understand it until I actually sampled it on scrap yarn. It’s really quite simple once you get it! Anyway I really love this color and happy with how the socks came out. My son says it feels like a sweater for his feet! I would have made the leg length longer but I was tired of knitting it and wanted to be done!
Great socks! I understand the wanting it to be done. lol
Since I only like over the calf I have to fight that feeling of wanting to be done, just a little more, just a little more.
Oh, well done! The socks worked out beautifully. All the preparation and study were worth it and your son’s description is perfect.
Right now I am working on a hat for one the custodians who open the gates at the school where my crossing is .It is just a plain white hat, and I will put a small pompom on top as the finishing touch.
Daylily, you have so generously outfitted your entire school and maybe the entire county! What a thoughtful gift.
You have to be one of the most generous, thoughtful people I’ve had the pleasure to encounter. I know you’ve helped me when I needed it here. Thanks for that!
