Scrunchy hat

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

Posted Mon Aug 11, 2008, 17:58 PM by Tracy | |

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

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.

Aran vest

Posted Sun Jan 28, 2007, 13:39 PM by Tracy | |

I am calling this done. The first thing you may notice is the skirt, or bottom ribbing, is much longer than in previous photos. The sad story is I neglected to measure my vertical gauge and make appropriate adjustments for the yarn shrinking up as well as in. The result was a vest that was a few inches too short.

Purple-Teal Shawl-Scarf

There wasn’t time for an in-between picture, so here’s the final. It has wonderful drape and just enough sparkle. I decided to leave the fringes plain instead of doing fancy knotting. A good decision considering I was finishing this stole Christmas eve.
