Lady Eleanor

Specs: Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole, out of the Scarf Style book by IK70" long, 6-3/4" wideYarn: - Schaeffer Yarns, Miss Priss (100%merino wool), colorway "Mr. Funny"about 1-2/3 hanks - LOVE THIS YARN!- Various coordinating colors of Cascade 220Needles: Size 10, Boye Needlemaster circular

Ok - it's not your typical Lady E, but I like it. I kind of broke a lot of style rules here... but isn't knitting about making it your own? I made a scarf instead of a stole, and I didn't use the typical Noro or yarn that makes it's own blocks.

Hubby's Hat

Specs: Pattern - out of "The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns" - Ann Budd

Yarn: Knit One Crochet Two, Ambrosia, color 455, 1-1/4 balls

Size 3 circulars I didn't get a picture of it on the hubby, but Kaity and Carmen modeled.

The hubby actually wears it all the time. Definitely a winner.

BlueBonnet Socks

Gotta love a fast knit!!! I have been wearing these like crazy, and they wear and wash beautifully.

Specs: Hill Country Yarns, Instant Gratification Sock Yarn, color: BlueBonnet One skein.

Knit on two size 5 circs, in 5 days!I didn't really have a pattern, but cast on 44 stitches kind of winged it from there, consulting a few different books.


Love these!!!

Here's the specs:Pattern: Jaywalker, by Grumperina.
Yarn: KnitPicks Sock Landscape in RedWood Forest - two skeins
Needle: Size 2 DPN's

I made them the smaller of the two sizes, casting on 76 stitches.

Sister Scarf

Pattern: Sister Scarves
Yarn: KnitPicks Shine

Sorry, I don't remember a lot of the specs on this, such as needle size, but I know it took less than two balls. I changed the pattern and used stockinette for the body.... a mistake, because it curls terribly.

I'll probably make this again, using just the Horseshoe lace (on the bottom of the scarf) for the whole scarf... I really love that part of the pattern.
