More Stuff from me. (UPDATED, PAGE 4)

I’ve been busy lately :wink: . Here’s some of the fruits of my labor:

First, the candle Flame Shawl. It’s kind of been shoved down to the bottom of the WIP pile, but I’ve recently pulled it out again:

Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky, colorway Pewter
Needles: Knit picks Options, 5.5 millimeter needles, 60"

Next, a seamless raglan I’ve started. I’ve got the body done and the first sleeve started:

Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, colorways Amber Heather and Cloud.
Needles: Knit Picks Options, 5 millimeter needles, 24", 32", and 16"

And finally, a lace scarf I’ve started. I love this lace stitch, and it’s going to be for my grandmother:

Detail:

Yarn: Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud, colorway Iris Heather
Needles: Knit Picks Options, 5 millimeter needles.

Enjoy!

Great work, as always!!! How is the Alpaca Cloud to work with? I have some in my stash.

Thanks, Alpaca Cloud is a great yarn. It’s one of the thinner, softer, drapier lace weights, and is perfect for that scarf. I would reccomend it for, say, a scarf or shawl like the Branching Out scarf.

You’ve got a very lucky grandmother! The lace scarf is really nice, and I love the look of the candle flame shawl.
:thumbsup:

sThanks! She is lucky considering that the candle flame shawl is also for her, I’m almost done with a throw, and I also have a v-neck cardigan design in the works for her, too.

Here are the instructions for the scarf. I cast on 26 stitches, but any even number plus 2 will work fine.

Knit 2, Yarn over, Purl 2 together. Do that on every row and you get this effect.

gorgeous sweater! i love everything though!

Beautiful!!

[SIZE=1][COLOR=Silver]I hope when I grow up I’m as good as you! :shifty:

:teehee:[/COLOR][/SIZE]

:aww: Thanks, Jan!

These are all beautiful! You’re getting the best out of the summer vacation:cheering:

All look great. You have been busy. Love the flame shawl.:inlove:

Thanks, everybody!

It is all beautiful! And I agree with Jan in CA-I too wish to be that good someday!

WTG, everything is GORGEOUS!!!

I LOVE the candle flame shawl, is the pattern hard to do? Where did you get it from? My Nanni would love one and I’d really like to knit her something for her 85th birthday.

Everything is SOOOO awesome! Your grandma must love having such a wonderful grandson. :slight_smile: Great job! :cheering:

WOW those are beautiful…I especially LOVE the Candleflame Shawl…you do beautiful work :inlove:

You’re not enjoying your summer break now, are you? :teehee:

Your work is really good!!!

Nah, this one’s a [I]killer [/I]:wink:

Thanks, everybody! The candle flame shawl isn’t hard to do and the free pattern is HERE If you have never done the double increase/decrease, than it can be [I]a little[/I] tricky at first. Once you get the hang of the stitches, you can completely memorize the pattern and I don’t even have to refer to it anymore. Instead of the garter stitch collar across the top, I think I’ll change it, use the basic guidlines, and knit on a lacy border, I think that’ll look better.

When I grow up, I want to be ContiKnitter. Oh, wait, I have a grown son way older than him, so I guess I’m hopeless. Does anyone else get pea-green with envy when they see the great work he’s doing? When I was his age, I had the attention span of a May fly. I’m just totally in awe!

Have you considered getting your master knitters credentials from TKGA? http://www.tkga.com/mastersprogram.shtm I’m sure it would be a snap for you.
