Hey Knitters!!! There are less than 9 weeks until Christmas… yes I said it, less than 9 WEEKS! Need some ideas for Christmas presents?
I posted FIVE new colorways up at The Knitted Geek Yarns yesterday! While I dyed them awhile ago I finally got them wound up and ready to post. This was my first set that had any bulky yarn in them, so I had 2 bulkys, a worsted weight, and two sock weights.
The Sock Weights:
The Worsted Weight:
Muddy Blue Jeans
The Bulky Weights:
In case you’re wondering, the Bulky weights make WONDERFUL quick hats!
Finished Mobius Wrap
I’m not a wrap person, I’m not a shawl person… but at Stitches Midwest 2009, I tried on the Mobius wrap by Crazy Girl Yarn Shop, and I had to buy the yarn, the pattern, and cast it on.
I knit this in about two weeks. I cast it on the night we got back from Stitches (September 11th) and bound off my last stitch as I was landing in South Bend after a weekend visiting Georgia (September 28th).
The yarn was Blue Haron Yarns – Rayon Metallic in the Deep Blue Sea/Silver colorway. It only took one skein of yarn. Granted the yarn is a little bit more on the expensive side, but I will say it was well worth it.
It was knit on size 9, 24” circular needles.
I love the wrap, it was so easy to knit and it provides a great finished product that can be worn all year. It’s light enough to wear in the summer but will make a good cover when you need just one more layer for the winter.
If anyone is looking for a quick, easy knit project, this is a great one for that!
