Cozy - Cat in a Hand-Knit Scarf

Cozy (6/365), originally uploaded by Bonnie Matthews.

Oh my - this brings back memories of my sweet little Merlin (who really wasn't so little). His sister Minnie still sleeps under my daughter's blanket at times.

Photo note:

"Toby cuddled up in the latest scarf that I finished. Yes, apparently I'm still knitting scarves. I swear I'm going to try socks soon."

Aw!!! I love the pink bunny suit this handknit bear is wearing! My grandmother would approve; she loved animal dolls, especially bears.

I'm sleepy right now. So, what am I doing up still? Looking up sleepy knits!

This one is very sweet - little grey and black sleepy cat.

Sleepy time for Knit Picks

This is very cute. I look at my teenagers and remember the little sweaters I made for them. I still have them in my cedar chest.

"I found this sweater that my Grandma Kate knit when I was a kid (either for me or my brother, usually we each got one) while I was home for Christmas."

I would *so* wear this!

Oldfashioned knit unmentionables

Oldfashioned knit unmentionables, originally uploaded by Vilman.

What fun! Here is the photo note:

"Pattern: Garnstudio's knit shorts with own modifications (knit in stockinette stitch, knit the legs longer, added the lace ruffles and satin ribbons), size L.
Yarn: Some terrible knotty yarn purled from a industrially knit sweater. 250 gr in total.
Needle: 3,5 mm, crochet hook to BO stitches.

This was a fun project with no pressure or fear of failing: the yarn was so awful that it had almost no hope of becoming anything useful. Therefore I decided to overdo it and make something extreme out of it. I think I did quite well... :D

These actually come in handy, because they are really warm (100 % wool). Now I can wear knee-high socks and skirts throughout the winter without freezing my ass off. Yay! ;)"

Sparkly (Summer Lace Cardigan)

Sparkly (Summer Lace Cardigan), originally uploaded by vetaflame.

This is simply gorgeous. My kind of knitting.


"This started out as a pattern from a local yarn store. I changed the yarn, the gauge, the lace pattern, the length (2 inches longer), and the neckline (2 inches higher). I added a lace border to the bottom of the back to fix a pesky row gauge problem. I changed the sleeve cap to make it rounder. And I added lacing all the way up the front (the original had only a single hook closure), to allow for the possibility of wearing it in public. A slim possibility, admittedly.

Pattern: Summer Lace Cardigan, from Common Threads (sort of)

Yarn: Berroco Cotton Twist in Fern. I would not use this yarn again. It is inelastic and splits like crazy. The rayon plies snag on everything. It's a shame, because the colors and shine are gorgeous.

Size: 35 inch finished chest."
