knitted

A few weeks ago I started working on this sweater. It should have been a weekend project, but you know how I’m never able to get the right amount of yarn lol

So yesterday I finished this alpaca sweater and I’m hella proud of it.
I used the pattern “Oversized knitted Sweater” by ALEKSANDRA

Cot Blanket

Handknit cot blanket, made on 2.25mm needles and knitted in cotton embroidery thread.

Okay, this just BLEW my mind!  Knitting with embroidery thread!?  That’s crazy, BUT amazing all at once! And how effective is this?  SO good!  Made by    Spellstone and found on Flickr.

To get started on something like this, here’s a simple pattern for a knitted triangle:

Directions

Cast on 2 sts.
Row 1 (RS): K1, yo, k1.
Row 2: K1, yo, k2.
Row 3: K1, yo, knit to end.

Knit until the triangle is the desired size you want and then repeat. (This is the basic pattern I make when making a quick and easy triangle shawl.  I love garter stitch and yarn overs!)

For my grandmother’s 80th birthday. She has always kept us in socks, until recent years when her vision got bad and she couldn’t knit anymore. She’s super proud of me, of that I learned to knit all by myself. So I made her socks.

I mostly like to knit cables or lace but I thought that because her vision is blurry it’s not obvious she could see any fancy structuring. So stripes, I thought, but something fun. And I like to think these are fun.

Happy birthday, Mammo ♥
