four sweaters and a shawl

I’ve finished a few things this year already. But in the blogging hiatus, they haven’t been posted.

Two tiny sweaters made from Tanis Fiber Arts yarn:

Baby Abernathy

one is a little Abernathy sweater, which I’ve knit twice before and love

Kriá

and the other is a Kriá and is a proper Icelandic sweater with a steek. (Steeking means knitting a tube and then cutting it for the zipper.)

Two sweaters for me:

Katrine sweater

one Katrine cardigan out of Quince and Co Puffin

My Grande Favorito

and one Il Grande Favorito out of Cascade Eco +. They’re both amazingly cozy and warm and I wear them all the time.

Finally, my Christmas road trip van knitting:

Tosh shawl

a Boneyard Shawl in Madelinetosh Sock. Tosh yarn definitely lives up to the hype.

Currently I’ve got a tiny sweater finished but for the buttons, a spring shawl a third finished, and I’m about to turn the heel on a pair of socks made out of the most gorgeous yarn I’ve ever seen.

Project details, if you want them, are on Ravelry.

made: little sweaters

I finished a couple of little sweaters for my tiny boy baby friends.

For Baby M, a Gramps sweater with bulky yarn knit extra-tightly that will be super warm in the winter.

And for Baby L, an R&R Hoodie with the yarn called for in the pattern, which was magical to work with. And completely machine wash-and-dry-able too!

I like them. (Links go to my Ravelry project pages.)

made: clara’s bonnet

Poof! It’s summer. Clara has no hair and thus required some sort of adorable headgear, and lo! the Purl Bee posted this pattern! I made it at once. (It reminded me how challenging and/or frustrating it is to sew with a little baby around. But I still finished it!)
