Convertible

Almost two weeks without a post. I'm a bad blogger. But I have an excuse. I have been using every spare moment to knit. Knitting is better than blogging, right? I started the Convertible shawl/shrug last Tuesday. I swatched before getting on the train at 6am to go to the gym. And it hasn't left my hands since. It was finished Wed. afternoon. Well, finished minus the buttons. I have to go buy them and then make them. That will take me til the wedding at the end of the month. Wanna see it? It's a fuzzy picture, but you get the idea.



And this is the close up of the pattern:


Next up, the Over the Knee socks from Holiday Handknits. I'm using Rowan Cashsoft DK. They're for my best friend. I've already gotten 2 of the lace pattern repeats done, and there are 15 in total before doing the heel.



A closer look at the ribbing:


I'm also going to do another Roxy bag, for the little one's teacher. I'll have more pics later this week. Maybe I'll post the cupcakes I made for a batchelorette party....

Pretty patterns. Over the Knee Socks? Wow, one of my sock bags couldn't hold all of THAT! It would have to go into a spindle bag. That's one tall sock.

Convertible looks awesome! So pretty in the neutral color, and even if you didn't attach the buttons, it would be a great accessory. What yarn did you use?

I love the lace pattern in Convertible--excellent lace knitting there!

Now my curiosity is piqued--I want to see these cupcakes!

I want to knot convertible, yours looks lovely! Any estimate on the yardage used? I bought some bamboo for it, but only 3 skeins (can't recall off the top of my head the yardage) were available when I got it. Oh I hope I have enough.

Just kidding. You know it's coming to you/ Love, Ali

Wait. You mean started one day, finished the next? OMG that's nutto. But it's done, and it's pretty!! Can't wait to sit it buttoned.

The socks are groovy-looking. The ribbing makes me cry :) I should be ashamed of myself; I haven't finished my FIRST Roxy...

Susann said...

Awesome lace and gorgeous socks! Is that ribbing something with twisted stitches that make tiny cables?

Pam said...

I can't believe how fast you knitted that Shawl! It's beautiful, and the color is great.

I am so happy I found your site. It appears we have more in common than knitting! I'll let you know when I complete the "world renound" triple lindee patern. It will be soon!
