Past Projects

Saz asked about photos of the knitting projects I've been working on, but what I'm working on right now are gifts for people who read this blog, so I couldn't do that. But I do have a couple of pictures of some past projects. I don't always think to take pictures before I give things away, and I don't often make things for myself, so I don't have things to take pictures of. But here are a couple of things.

Jay laughed when he saw this hat, but I think it's great. I love knitting cables, and this was a simple project for that.


My young neice and sisters-in-law like to go dancing, so I made purses like this one in different colors that they could take with them.


These were THE gift this last Christmas. All the men in Al's family are hunters, so I made these fingerless gloves in camoflauge yarn to go with the scarves I made in the same yarn the year before.


Once I learned to knit in the round, it opened a whole new world of projects. But a lot of what I do is still just big rectangles. You can do a lot with rectangles.

OMG!! This is a pivotal moment in my life. I now know what Jay has on his head in his profile picture! :o) *does happy dance*

That is, by far, the coolest hat. I'd wear it in a nanosecond!

We have a lot of ski mountains nearby so it is not at all unusual to see folks in some crazy-ass snowboarding hats. (we call a knit-winter hat a "toque" here. pronounced toook, not tuk)

I almost didn't put that hat pic in there, but I really like it. And I like the way everyone laughs when they see it on someone.

I'd happily pay for you to knit me one in lime green. Whadda ya think?

It's a perfect hat for skiing out west. Very nice.

Kell said...

I looooooove lime green! Maybe with a light blue comibined with it in the tassels?

Thanks JD! I've never been skiing--definitely one of those things I want to try someday.

To finally know what that head thing on Jay is!!!

Are ou taking orders for those little purses? They are adorable! I love the red, only with more danglies across the bottom...or maybe in a deep purple.

WOW Kell - These are great items. Thanks for indulging my request for fotos. What's so great about that hat is the cables..would never have thought to do that. I also luv the little purses - have not been too crazy about some of the knitted ones I see but these are precious...and it looks like everyone wants one! Giving me ideas......

Saz--the hat pattern is in Hip To Knit and the club purse is on the Lion Brand website, I think. They were both really easy. I'm just starting to think up my own stuff, but it's a lot of trial and error.

Am searching for these patterns now - THANKS!
