Classic Cuffed Hat For as long as I can remember, every Sunday my grandmother makes fresh pasta from scratch, and every Sunday she uses the same metal pasta maker she got as a wedding anniversary gift from my grandfather in 1961. When we press her to upgrade to a new machine, she always responds, “It’s hard to improve on a classic!” I revisited the truth in my grandmother’s words when I set out to make this winter’s hat. How could I improve on a classic winter hat?
cocoknits: Malabrigo weave scarf This one was a long time coming. Some Malabrigo goodness for me. This sat in my office knitting basket for quite a long time, progressing slowly as I stole a few furtive stitches here and there during lunch break. I became quite proficient at cabling without a cable needle on this one. The fuzziness of the Malabrigo means the stitches want to stay put, making the job a whole lot easier. I took the pattern out of one of my stitch dictionaries.

Lincraft Blossom (Blossom Tee) ...so here's the way that it usually goes...I see discounted yarn and buy as much as I can afford, or carry, or both!!! (but of course, that's just a given for all yarnies, right?). My next step is usually to take it home, drool over it, plan a million things to make with it, and then put it into storage bins for future use (:-D)...but, this time I was on a mission to use what I bought straight away :-) Lincraft had a discount bin next to the check-out with their own brand Blossom for 24 cents a ball (24c!!).

Haz Wool, Will Knit: January 2012 Not that I like to be seen to pander too much to my blogger stats and comments, but it does seem that there are a few people out there who would like to know how I made my Killing Jumper. I'm not going to describe what follows as a pattern, it is more working notes on what I did. I hope they make sense and provide some help, if not drop me a line.
25 Free Beginner Knitting Patterns Take a second and think back to when you first started knitting. Were you intimidated by difficult techniques? Was it hard to find patterns at your skill level? Did you want a list of beginner knitting patterns? Free Pattern- On the Side « Abby's Knits Posted on June 20, 2009 by Abby On The Side by Abby Tohline Fully Reversible Cabled Scarf Sarah Lund jumper My Mam really likes Scandi Crime.. so I accidentally ended up watching and enjoying the second series of The Killing with her earlier this year. It is famous of course for the Jumper that the main character Sarah Lund wore: The jumper is made by the Faroese company Gudrun & Gudrun, they are beautiful and very rightly cost a lot of money.. so I did a bit of internet sleuthing and managed to gather enough information that made me think I could possibly knit my own.. the most helpful information I found was this project on Ravelry, it gave me the basic shape and by looking at the jumper I made a wee chart on DesignAKnit and gave it a go! I think i can safely say ill be knitting with 8mm needles more often! it was so fast, i got the body knitted in a few days, got one sleeve done then… the usual.
