Meryl's Ski Sweater

Updated Tue Sep 29, 2009, 20:32 PM
This is my sister-in-law’s Christmas present. For 2008. Meryl’s mother had a blue ski sweater that Meryl inherited. She loved it, but alas, it was lost some where along the way. All I had to go on was a poor-quality scan of a 28 year-old photo.

Aran Long Cardigan

Digital photography is a miserable thing. I have yet to figure out the ideal combination of shutter speed and aperature to bring out the shadows of white-on-white cables. Lighting has something to do with it, too. Someday I should take a class and really learn this stuff.

The leaves are turning color, which means it’s time to pull out all my thick handknit wool socks and assess them for repairs. Time to dig through my stash for the right weight of yarn. Never mind the color, this is how they turn into Frankenstein socks.

This is the scrunchy hat. It looks good on just about everybody. It can be worn like a cloche, or slouched to the side.

Finally I am done! I was just so tired of working on this beast for so long, over a year, I sat myself down yesterday and had a good marathon session that got me to within a couple rows of completing the front edge. Finished it off this morning.

Maddie's Debby Ware Beret

Updated Mon Aug 11, 2008, 17:58 PM

My cousin Susie bid on a Debby Ware kit for a baby beret. Susie doesn’t knit, so she asked me to knit this up for her little granddaughter, just four weeks old this week. This is the same baby for whom I made the Autumn Apple Baby Sweater

Autumn Apple Baby Sweater

Updated Sat Jul 05, 2008, 20:12 PM

I timed this to knit the sleeves during our recent trip to San Francisco. I finished the second sleeve right before boarding our flight home. Luckily the yarn is machine washable/dryer-safe, so I could get it washed and dried in time for tomorrow’s baby shower. I sewed on the buttons this very night.

Rip and knit, rip and knit, the usual. I started over because I decided the scarf was too wide. If I made it narrower, it would be longer.
