This is my finished Homespun (colorway: Corinthian) sweater jacket, which is going to my brother's MIL. Here it is posing with my tabby cat, Booger.

Broadripple Socks

Broadripple Socks

I knit these socks for the Broadripple Knitalong run in April and May of 2004. I used size 3 (3.25 mm) needles and Cascade Fixation color number 9966. I couldn't find a color name, but it consists of black, caramel and a cafe latte shade of brown.


Cat Bed

Cat Bed

I made this cat bed for my cat Booger. The pattern came from the Stitch and Bitch book, and used Fun Fur and Wool Ease, both by Lion Brand.


Charlotte's Web 2

Charlotte's Web 2

This is the blocking picture of my second Charlotte's Web. It uses Koigu KPPPM in colors 414, 602, 118, 124 and 440. I originally called this colorway Coral Reef, but the third color had more green and yellow than I'd realized. So it now more resembles a rainbow (to me).


Cloverleaf

Cloverleaf

These are my finished Cloverleaf Socks for the Six Sox Knitalong. I used size 1 DPNs and knit with Opal Handpainted yarn. I couldn't find an official color name or number on the label, so I named the colorway "Greens."

Finished 7/29/04

Finished toward the end of summer, of lavender cotton in a lacy pattern.


Quick baby sweaters

Quick baby sweaters

I made these sweaters for Stitches from the Heart. Though the pattern said it took 3-5 hours, it probably took me closer to 12 hours for each sweater

Summer Stripes Afghan

Summer Stripes Afghan

This was an Annie's Attic pattern combining the Mile-a-Minute and Crochet-n-Weave techniques. It involves making a grid in a combination of chains and double crochets. Then more chains are woven through this grid into patterns. I used Lion Brand Homespun Hepplewhite for the grid. The chains (also Homespun) are in colors Carribean, Inca, Evergreen, Waterfall, Delft and Honolulu
