I finished two drop stitch scarves that I'm selling on my etsy shop. Check them out!! http://NiseyKnits.etsy.com.



This second one in variegated jade tones is much longer than the blue one above (7ft long!!).

Flame Scarf is done!

Here is the flame scarf that goes with the Flame Thorpe I made for Sagine. The pattern for the scarf is "Holding Hands, Feeding Ducks" by beforesunrise. It can also be found on Ravelry here. Please forgive my pictures. The sky was overcast when I took them.

Fluornoy Ascot

I forgot to post about this one. I made it for LaSundra. The pattern is the Huckleberry Ascot by Kat Coyle. It was published by Interweave Press, and I've been coveting it for a while. They finally re-published it in an Interweave Knits Accessories 2009 so I bought a copy of that magazine. There are so many lovely patterns in there, including the Koolhaas hat pattern by Jared Flood. I used Rowan Pure Wool DK for the Ascot.





Aah...Red-Hot Citron

Citron is the current rage on Ravelry. (Pattern's original location is here, on the Knitty.com page). This pattern is simple and beautiful, and gives you a lace garment that just makes you happy. I had promised Lisa D a red shawl some months ago, and the Citron pattern from the winter 2010 Knitty magazine was just perfect. I put it down many times to work on other projects, but it's finally done. I'm definitely going to make at least one
 more of these.

I gave this one a picot edging, which seemed like a great idea at the time. However, the bind off took maybe two days because of that. :( The yarn I used is Knit Picks Shadow in Hot Rod Heather colorway. :) Hotness!!!





  

  


Flame Thorpe

My second hat, going to Sagine. And it has earflaps! The pattern is Thorpe, by Kirsten Kapur. This hat was so quick to knit, and so much fun! I want to make more! Someone PLEASE ask me to make one for you! The hat is beautiful, and looks good on many people. (Trust me!). I used Manos del Uruguay Wool Classica in the Flame colorway, hence the name. The purple edging is with Malabrigo Silky Merino in the Nocturnal colorway. There's a matching scarf that I'll put up once it's done blocking and I've taken some yummy photos of it. (BTW, aren't the pictures beautiful!! I used the Google Nexus One phone, and the camera is better than my digital camera!)

So, ladies and gentlemen, here is the Flame Thorpe!

 

 





The Lustra Falling Water scarf

Continuing my love affair with the Falling Water pattern by Bonnie Sennott, I finally finished this beauty that's going to Vedalyn. It's absolutely gorgeous. I used Berroco Lustra yarn, and the stitch definition is amazing! Enjoy!

Warning: The pictures might make you drool! :P
