…a multitude of things
Well back when I started this blog on blogger, I had the devotion to sit and create a handful of blogs and then disappeared like a phantom. Every time I made a new project, I promised myself to upload a new post… and instead started a new project. So, this post is devoted to all the things I have made in the past year and a half and was too lazy to load.
This is a sock monkey hat made for my sister in law, Amanda. I got the pattern from Knitty and it was quite a hit. Now for her husband…
I made the manly mitts, also from Knitty – I liked them so much that I made a pair for myself!
…and kitty helped! Next up (but of course these are NOT in chronological order!) is
my first foray into cables and it was in the form of a scarf for my younger brother, Steven. Hopefully he’ll send me a picture of him wearing it because I bet he’s pretty darn handsome in it!
This was a purse I made a few months ago for my other brother, Richie’s fiance, Maria, for Christmas. Being that I have been absorbed with knitting for the past 2 years, I am way out of practice with sewing, so in all honesty, it’s ok but certainly not perfect (sorry, Maria!)… I just wish that I could design knit patterns like I could pattern a purse.
This was my second foray into cables and it was a pillow for my mom. She loves it, even though there are plenty of things that I would, in retrospect, change. For one, I would have lined it with red fabric so that those white spots would not peer the gaps in the yarn. Also I would have made it removeable so that the pillow within could be replaced. Already the pillow has become flattened like a pancake. But still, mom loves it!
That’s about it for my summary of 2006-07 projects. Hopefully the year 2008 will see a more dedicated Kristen makes.
