Way last October I mentioned that my SIL asked me to knit a cardigan/poncho/ruana for her.
My progress so far – 200+ rows each side for the front with a few stitches added at the back neckline knit in a ribbed pattern for 15-16 rows.
I’m on the back half which will be approximately 200 +/- rows and 171 stitches for each row.
Nothing fancy as that is what she requested though I think pom-poms at the corners would be a great addition to add weight and interest. My plan is to be finished with this by the end of the month…for mid-February at the latest.
The quilt is top is still unfinished but it’s down to the border pieces then the quilting…
My final completed knitting project this year was a set of four coasters using this pattern.
I had given all my cotton yarn (except the white and red) to my granddaughter this fall. thinking I was all coastered out. But needing a quick Christmas hostess gift, I decided to bring out the pattern again.
These red and white coasters remind me of peppermint candies!
I also managed to knit another scrubby with red and orange Scrubby Sparkle. Sorry, no pictures.
A great gift idea that only took about 4-5 hours to complete!
I like to wind yarn into balls myself. That way I can see if there are any knots of other anomalies in the hank.
I wound the Grumpy Gus yarn into a ball before I left for Colorado. I was ready to cast on for the THSS II Sailing School Sock while the grands were in school this morning and was surprised by a sick ball of yarn.
I don’t remember winding so tightly but I evidently did.
It will probably take me the next three hours to get it fixed then the grands will be home from school.
