Ended up frogging this project and setting it aside. It was supposed to be a hat to go along with the cowl I just finished. Sadly it just wasn’t coming out the way I had intended. So for now, or at least until my disappointment and annoyance subsides, I have hidden it away.
It is still so beautiful though… I will try hand warmers next, and maybe a headband?
Sorry guys no pattern for this one. The sleeves were so challenging that I honestly don’t know how I pulled it off. I am working on a pattern for a straight forward polka dot sweater since I got so many likes and comments on the body, but it is still in the works!
I forgot to take proper photos of my latest knitting project so here it is. it’s Juneberry Triangle on Ravelry, and it’s really really nice. I started this at Anthrocon over 2 years ago now and have been working on it on and off until just before Christmas 2013. worth it!!!
The cowl I made for a friend with the two differently colored skeins of MadTosh. Washed it in really hot water and let it sit until the water cooled, since I’ve found MadTosh bleeds a lot. You can still see the color difference (at least, I can), but it’s way less noticeable than it was before. All over, I’m pleased. Last pic for stitch detail.
Crazy chevron madness cowl. There’s a booboo in this pattern that I’d discovered too late to repair with out starting over…still looks cool tho…
