Come join us for a knit-along showcasing one (or two, or three...) yarns from Briar Rose Fibers. Order enough yarn for your project or find a pattern for the Briar Rose in your stash and get ready to cast-on. Chris, whose imagination is behind all of the hand painted heaven, has graciously offered a yarn "give away" from time-to-time. So, what are you waiting for? E-mail me at: Kniterella at Cox dot Net and let's get to knittin'!
I finished this last week but couldn't get photos until Sunday. And then I found it hard to capture the shawl well. It's at its best when worn. But there was no one to photograph me in it and no model for me to use (other than my four-year-old son).
I'm moving right along on my CPHoodie. Fronts and back are complete and I'm ready to begin the hood. Then it will need sleeves and there's the matter of a button band.
I haven't had much time for posting, but Wow! this dress is just cruising along!! I think it is the addicting combination of using yarn I love, and the wonderful, rhythmic, fun to knit pattern! In this picture, I'm just preparing to do the front straps (since then, I have finished the front straps plus the back portion of the bodice and am ready to do the back straps-except I have also finished up my skein, and so must prepare to wind the other!) I'm amazed at how well this skein lasted-the pattern said it neded 550 yds and I actually added in two extra inches of length in the skirt (my daughter is tall and rail thin, so I thought, if I made the dress just a teensy bit longer, she may get a few more wearings out of it!) I did make a mistake when casting on for the skirt though-I used a long tail cast on (b/c its so easy!) but now the skirt edge is really rolling! I'm hoping that, if blocking doesn't help (which I doubt it will...) I can fix it by using maybe some sort of inconspicuous crochet edge...
