More knitting of the ‘I can’t show you here’ variety. Another test knit toy for a designer, working on writing up two patterns of my own and really struggling with one of them, since it can be customized in a variety of ways and I am trying to figure out how to write it all down without making the knitter’s eyes glaze over.
But I finally did get a picture of some of the crochet slippers I have been making for birthday presents.
And I also made this little guy, as a gift for my mom for Mother’s Day.
She is a big fan of Eeyore.
I wish I could tell you where I found the pattern. But alas, I really do not remember. I am sure that I found it online, years ago, but apparently I copied the pattern information to a Word document, and neglected to also include any identifying information, like, say, designer name or pattern URL. The pattern itself (at least the parts I have) is not complete, either, so I had to do a bit of guesstimating on some of it.
I also whipped up a pair of socks – plain stockinette, from a random ball of self-patterning pink and grey sock yarn I acquired during a recent stash swap. Naturally I have no picture of those, either, since shortly after I wove in the ends, I stuck them on my feet, and every time I remember that I still need a picture, they are usually buried at the bottom of my laundry basket and I am just not motivated enough to go dig them out, merely for photographic purposes.
Other than that, however, I’ve mostly been knitting lace. I’m not sure why – I guess I’m just in the mood. Currently on the needles – the Alpine Knit Scarf with Double Rose Leaf Center Pattern and Diamond Border from Victorian Lace Today (although I am simply referring to it as Diamonds and Roses, because the original name is kind of unwieldy). It’s my first time doing true knit lace (where the patterning is on both sides, not just one), and I have to admit, it’s actually kind of fun.
