2015 Finished Handmade – 1

I just realized I didn’t write a single post about my finished knitting project last year. Well, it was kind of true, I was messing around with my sewing machine more last year. However, Canada’s winter is really the best time to go back to knitting.

Last weekend, I was doing some re-organizing of my yarn stash, looking at all my yarns hopelessly, hating how slow I knit. I only knit while I watch TV, maybe it means I watch much less TV now. But seriously, I need to knit faster, because I want to buy more yarn!

Merino Fingerless Glove
Remember this failed Henry scarf? I frogged it, skeined it, washed it, dried it, then re-winded it into cake — oh man, what a price (time and energy) to pay for the failure. I made a pair of fingerless gloves for my bf using the recycled yarn:

Banana Leaf Shawl

2012年完工的编织物 – 9

圣诞来临,答应了给朋友的一岁儿子织一对小袜子. 一个星期完成, 脚底约长12厘米. 因为毛线是段染的,所以选了这款平针的袜子. 出乎我意料之外,这么个小袜子, 居然让我学习了两种新的编织技术. 脚跟部和脚趾部是用同一种short row技术,和编织成人袜子完全不同,不需要再挑针出来. 脚趾部位织好后,和脚背处用一种叫做zigzag的收针法, 看到脚趾上那一条麻花似的条状物吗? 我觉得倒是蛮特别的.

Fountain Pen 美丽诺披肩终于大功告成。 掌握花样的规律后,蛮容易的,也不需要每一行都看着图纸; 基本上不容易出错。


定型图: 垫子不够大, 我把它对折定型, 这样又省了地方, 又保证对称。
