Whatcha' Knitting? November, 2020

Oh my gosh those are so cute!!! :heartbeat:

I haven’t been knitting during the pandemic. Knitting for me has been a social thing and without the social it just didn’t happen. However, I just bought a Casapinka pattern called Sharon’s Glamping Blanket. I don’t have the correct amounts of 4 colors so I think I’m going to wing it with what I have. We’ll see how it goes!

Just finished Reversible Knit Lap Blanket by Yarnspirations with Bernat Blanket yarn in Almond for my son-in-law’s 40th birthday. I made blankets for all the grands this year and he said he wanted one too! #11 needles, Chinese Waitress cast on (and bind off) 96 stitches. Eleven pattern repeats. 50” x 61” This pattern shows up better than most I’ve tried with this yarn.

Dug out some old Hobby Lobby I Love this Yarn stripes in cranapple as I wasn’t finding Christmas yarn in the stores yet (or that I liked). Last Christmas, I decided I wanted a Christmas scarf this year. I made Christmas stockings from this years ago on the Bond machine, but I’ll never finish more of them. After blocking, I’ll probably run a line through the ends to pull them back to body width. I started a red scarf last winter but now I can’t find the rest of that yarn in my stash! Hoping it’s in my other house.

Pattern stitch is mock cable on #8 needles. Also swatching WYS Signature in Fairy Lights & Cayenne Pepper for socks.

I have completed 2 jumpers, a poncho and several baby items this year, oh, and a couple of scarves. I am currently knitting a jumper in Tundra super chunky for my Mum’s birthday on 16 November - 2 weeks time but as it’s super chunky is grows FAST, another jumper for Mum for Christmas in James C Brett marble chunky, and Aran for a friend and a baby cardigan - I think that’s all… oh and a temperature blanket, but only got as far as the end of March!

Wow, @Beth_Leatherman beautiful blanket. No wonder it was much in demand. I’m sure the grands enjoy theirs and your son-in-law will love his. It’s not easy to get such pretty stitch definition from Bernat Blanket but you’ve done it.

Amazing number of gorgeous projects, @HershamGirl
You have spent a productive year even if you stopped now. Love the colors and patterns. Can’t wait to see the sweater for your mom’s birthday.

@Jan_in_CA that’s a good looking blanket and one that won’t ever be boring to work. It’ll be fun to see your version. Happy hunting for the colors!

i just broke ground on a freddie Krueger sweater, but it is going to be black and grey.

The ombré effect on the first jumper looks great!

Cute hats and I love those happy models. :rofl:

That is gorgeous! Beautiful work.

Thank you!

I finished this a little bit ago, but I asked on here for help about the keyhole and thought I’d share the finished result!

Thank you @Shintoga. It is my poncho, 2 strands of Twister (4ply) from Danish company Hobbii. Very pleased with it.

thank you :slight_smile:

I’m making washcloths to match some handmade soaps I got online - the other ones will be different patterns as I want to do multiple colours, but this one is the Almost Lost Washcloth, in King Cole Vogue, wisteria shade. The soap is blue marble with a white dog and snowflakes on it.
