I always wanted to make (from Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton Noro book 2) but couldn get over the itch of Kureyon or Silk Garden, so I was thrilled when Noro came out with Matsuri, a cotton stripey yarn, and in dk weight to canada goose uk boot.
by from one sleeve cuff to the other in one piece. The sleeves are gofind.ca straight, of belled. If you don already know, I a bit about matching the stripes. was a bit of a blessing (ha!) that of nine balls of yarn used for this sweater, eight of them had knots, and all that cutting and having enough of whatever colors to match out not be a problem. In order to have stripes that aren too thin from longer rows, I knit with alternate balls of yarn that started at the same color. There were some rows in the front where the colors didn match/blend exactly (in left picture) but in general canada goose factory outlet the stripes turned out about the same width as the sleeves. I added a little waist shaping too.

Canada Goose online The pattern for this Kimono Jacket comes from Rowan Studio 7. I made it for Chinese New Year, which was about nine months ago! Normally, I to use for CNY (any color is to wear except white), but was in a stash busting frame of mind, and the Queensland Kathmandu DK turned out to be a good substitute for the Rowan Scottish Tweed DK called for. I ended up using only 9 balls of yarn. Canada Goose online
canada goose clearance It was a straight forward knit, with little finishing, since the front bands, lapels, and collar were knit at the same time. If there anything I might do differently, it be to knit an entire belt rather than having a little tie at the front, so that the waist could be cinched in. canada goose clearance
Canada Goose Jackets I wore this for three days straight during CNY, with either a purple or red top underneath. The yarn is exceptionally soft for a woolly tweed, but fuzzed up a little at the shoulders where I my canada goose outlet toronto address bag. all I remember about knit after ten months. I really should get on with those fos! 🙂 Canada Goose Jackets
Ever since Terhi gave me this Wetterhoff Sivilla wool/silk yarn two (yikes, two!) years ago, I been trying to find the perfect shawl pattern for 750 m of thin fingering weight. occurred to me: would never be a perfect pattern, and that I should knit something I like, as soon as all the yarn gets used up.
Canada Goose Parka This is the Estonian Garden Wrap pattern from Fiber Trends, started after those buy canada goose uk Socktober socks. I started on one of the borders first, rather than the main part, as I am unsure whether or not there be enough yarn. Just over 30 g of yarn has been used, so I might have a little less than needed to knit the full pattern. Whatever the case, with my trusty little scale, I be able to squeeze as many pattern repeats as possible. I looking forward to knitting the rest of this; it been a long time since my last lace encounter and I miss it! Canada Goose Parka
Canada Goose Outlet Top down and mostly stocking stitch, like Wendy’s canada goose outlet in montreal pattern, but canada goose outlet online big front bands with two saucer sized buttons, slightly longer sleeves, and knit with Rowan Summer Tweed, like in Kim’s pattern. The Summer Tweed! I thought I’d never use it again after using it for these two projects. I didn’t like the way those garments stretched (a lot!!) at the recommended gauge of 4 st/ inch, and depending on your color/lot choice, the yarn can be quite rough, as I found out in the stripy sweater. It goes to show how much I liked the original tweedy Kim design to buy this yarn. Perhaps it was not the smartest thing to just hope but I thought the tighter gauge for this pattern (4.5 st/ inch) might make it less stretchy and just crossed my fingers that this particular lot of yarn Canada Goose Outlet (color is Summer Berry) would be soft (it is).

canada goose canada goose outlet london coats The biggest modification to the pattern was the button/ button hole bands, which were knit in double moss stitch. I had knit the 36″ size, cast on three fewer stitches on each side of the neck, and used 11 instead of 7 stitches for the bands. The buttonholes were done over 3 stitches instead of 2. I used just two rows of seed stitch at the neck, sleeve and hem edges, so that there were no other bands to distract you from the front ones. The edges would probably roll with a sproingier yarn, but the Summer Tweed pretty much stayed where it’s finger pressed. The fabric is stiffer at this gauge, but at least the jacket isn’t stretching out. Six and a half skeins of Summer Tweed were enough for this project. canada goose coats
canada goose coats on sale It’s a reknit of the cherry scarf, which I’d mentioned over a year earlier. I guess I just didn’t like my uneven stitches, and the way I’d woven in the ends (kind of lumpy) that the cherries were’t getting attached to the first scarf, which was knit up over two years ago. So it’s being reknit with new yarn (yummy Jaeger extrafine merino), and because canada goose vest outlet it’s a gift, it has to be done soon, so no more dilly dallying! Anyway, I think I made that mistake because I started this right after I finished the last piece of Maris (from Rowan 41), whose second last stitch on every row was a purl. Here’re the Maris canada goose outlet toronto location pieces ready canada goose outlet black friday to be seamed up: canada goose coats on sale
canada goose deals I was telling the hubby the canada goose outlet canada other day how I liked the Chinese New Year of yesteryear, when the canada goose outlet mississauga whole of Hong Kong would slow to a standstill. I kind of miss the rush of having to make sure I got all the food and gift packages ready before the festivities because all the shops and restaurants would be closed for a couple of days. And because I hate crowds, I loved that the normally busy areas of town were devoid of people and cars. Not any more. Lots of shops and restaurants are opened so fewer people are staying at home. I miss the cold too! I used to look forward to dressing the kids up in the silk padded jackets that canada goose discount uk my mil had made. This year, people were walking around canada goose outlet hong kong wearing T shirts in the hottest CNY on record. In fact, it was really too hot to wear Smoulder, but of course, I canada goose jacket outlet store wore it anyway. ; ) canada goose deals
Yarns: Rowan Cotton Glace and Cotton 4 ply in stated colors as the pattern, except for Blood Orange, for which I substituted Rowan Nice in the same shade. (The Nice yarn is terribly splitty, and the knitting slowed down a lot when I knit that color to make sure I caught the nearly thirty strands in each stitch.)
canada goose store A couple of the big color bands from the sleeves were deleted to suit my short arms, and the fronts/back were knit as one piece. I’m sooo glad I did that because I had over 250 ends to weave in as canada goose outlet germany it was, and if everything was knit separately, there would’ve been about three times the number of ends! canada goose store
Canada Goose sale The different yarns had different spins, and it was noticeable when two extreme opposite leaning bands of color were close to one another, such as the bright light red (Cotton Glace in Poppy) near the bottom of the picture, which leaned right, and the canada goose outlet store new york darker canada goose outlet reviews red (Nice in Blood Orange) above it which leaned to the left. The buttonhole and button bands are self faced, so it’s a bulky four layers of fabric when the cardi was buttoned up. All minor things to consider in the big picture, because I’m quite happy with the whole thing. Canada Goose sale
buy canada goose jacket cheap I started something new as my portable project. It’s a sleeve for Maris (Rowan 41), also known as the biggest yarn gobbler ever. It’s Calmer, knit at a gauge of 25 st/ 35 rows for a 10cm square. Simple but s l o w. It is also white, which signifies death for some people here, so I probably won’t be knitting this when I go round visiting relatives during the holiday. buy canada goose jacket cheap
buy canada goose jacket This year, I’ve been late in preparing for the holidays so there’s still lots to do tomorrow, like cleaning the house. I won’t get to it until Smoulder is done. ; ) buy canada goose jacket
canada goose These were based on Nancy Bush’s Hiiumaa Mismatched Mates in Knitting on the Road. It turned out after knitting the first sock (on the left) that I had enough blue left over for an entire sock, so that I could stripe the second one any way I liked. I find totally random stripes rather difficult to canada goose outlet vancouver do, as my hands would unwittingly continue knitting in one color unless I knew ahead of time where to change colors, so these ended up with patterned stripes. The yarn is Jaeger Baby Merino 4 ply, one skein Indigo, plus one white dyed with Limeade Koolaid (lots leftover), and knit at 56 st on 2.25 mm needles. They’re for Y, the little one who wanted his own socks, just because his brothers had handknit socks. canada goose
canada goose black friday sale Once in a while, when my stash becomes overwhelming and there’s no space to stuff another ball of yarn in the cupboard or under the table, I have a great urge to knit up the biggest pack of chunkiest yarn. The chunkiest was the Rowan Chunky Print, which I’d bought a few months ago to make Mist, thinking I could figure out the pattern without paying kit prices. (Never mind that it’s on sale now, and I’m so kicking myself!) I canada goose outlet belgium still think I could figure out the pattern, but I just don’t have the time right now. I have to make room! canada goose black friday sale
cheap Canada Goose Pampas is written to be knit with Big Wool at 10 st/ 10 cm, while mine knits at 13.5 st/ 10 cm, using 8 mm needles. I’m not totally sure of the gauge, as the thick and thin texture, and the somewhat loose stitches make it difficult to measure. I erred on the side of small when deciding on the number of sts to cast on, because I think it’ll stretch a bit with wear. What you see above (back plus two front, with shoulders seamed, ends woven in, and half a sleeve) is two day’s worth of knitting over the weekend, when I stayed home most of the time. Don’t expect it finished in another two days though, as I’m stuck at the sleeve cap shaping at the moment, plus I don’t have the correct sized crochet hook to canada goose outlet online store do the edging. But soon, I hope cheap Canada Goose.
