Knits in the Dark
I thought everyone could do with a little reminder of summer, so here’s some of the raspberry bounty from 2010.
While many things in our garden failed last year, raspberries did great. They have now been in for a few years, so I hope the continue to produce like mad!
The thing about not blogging quite as much as I used to is there is plenty of blog fodder around. I considered not putting these projects up here, (The photos don’t quite meet my requirements. Sorry for the bad indoor nighttime lighting.) but I enjoyed the projects so much that I wanted to share! Why not take new photos? Because these were a few gifts from the holiday season.
I made this out of handspun. I used the technique of hand blending that Judith McKenzie uses for socks in The Intentional Spinner. The edge is actually much more blue than gray. It was a gift for my MIL since she had hinted possibly wanting a hand knit item. Super fun and easy to knit. I may even end up knitting it again.
Another one out of handspun. This one has been finished for awhile, waiting for the right recipient. The pink and purple tones seemed like it would work well for my Grammie, so it became her x-mas gift.
The pattern is Lace Ribbon Scarf by Veronic Avery. The fiber is 50 Superwash Merino/50 Tencel Top from Spincerly Yours. She has some beautiful stuff! (Almost slipped and bought this one.) This was a great pattern, and I could see making one of these for myself.
