I've been in a knitting for gift giving frenzy, which has left me little time to think about my posts, but I decided to show you what I've been making. I've been making an item for myself, and then duplicating it in different colors for gifts. This is a long hand warmer I made for myself. The knitting pattern is called Dashing which can be found on Ravelry, or on knitty . Then I created it in a creme superwash wool for my sister.
Jan 2012 is over! 2013 is here! Did you make any goals? I have a handful, one of which is to knit 12 pairs of socks in 2013!
Note: Throughout the pattern, instructions are arranged in order with small size first, followed by large size in parentheses, S(L). Where only one number occurs, it refers to both sizes. Cuff Loosely CO 42 sts. Divide sts over needles as you prefer, ensuring each needle has a multiple of 7 sts.
Yarn : Classic Elite Yarns Alpaca Six Needles : 3.0 mm / US 2.5 Overall : I love them! Daylight time in Winter is short. So short, that I waited at least 2 weeks before I could take pictures of my lovely Lace Legwarmers! So after school, I grab the camera and took advantage of the last sunshine rays...
