This baby sweater is not finished yet, I don't seem to have to time or patience right now to be picking up stitches for a button band. However since it is a baby gift for a little girl born almost 3 weeks ago, I better hurry up! Morehouse Merino pattern, but washable wool from Filatura di Crosa.
Also last week, I started the "fylingdales" sweater from a fine fleece.
Bound off but no ends woven in: a rectangular stole in all oranges and some pink and pale yellow. A total mix of fibers, held double with a strand of laceweight mohair/nylon.
180 sts, size 10.5 needles; stitch pattern: knit on the right side; k1, p1 rib on the wrong side.
This next one took me a week to make, and I loved it...again, a mix of orphan balls, about 450 yards worth of worsted weights; double stranded with Douceur et Soie laceweight kid mohair and silk. It added a fine halo to the whole shawl that makes it look very cozy and elegant. Size 10.5 needles. The edging is 1.5 balls of chinchilla by Berroco.
I can't help it, I love garter stitch in a shawl...
So together with the last post, you can see what I was able to make during the last 2 weeks.
