January Knits

Finally, getting caught up with my blogging! Here are the projects I finished last month.



Pattern: Dashing, by Cheryl Niamath from Knitty, Spring 2007
Yarn: Cascade 220, 1 skein
Needles: US 7/4.5mm
Ravelry Link



Pattern: Toasty by Leslie Friend
Yarn: Cascade 220, 1 skein
Needles: US 7/4.5mm
Ravelry Link



Pattern: Evangeline, by Michelle Szeghalmi
Yarn: Cascade 220, The Heathers, 1 skein
Needles: US 7/4.5 mm
Ravelry Link

I made these three pair of mitts for the NaKniMitMo knitalong on Ravelry. They were a lot of fun (so quick!) and were also stashbusting projects.

My favorite project for January was the Flower Basket Shawl.



Pattern: Flower Basket Shawl by Evelyn Clark from Interweave Knits Fall 2004
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool, color 32, 3 skeins
Needles: US 10/6.0 mm
Ravelry Link

I discovered that I love knitting lace with sport/dk weight yarn and large needles. It goes very quickly, and I didn't need to put in a lifeline. I really enjoy wearing this shawl and can't wait to cast on for my next one - the Shetland Triangle.

those evangeline warmers are so pretty. Isn't cascade 220 great? It comes in so many colors and 220 yards goes a long way.

Your scarf is beautiful...I think next year might be my year for lace knitting (I've got to conquer the colorwork first)

Wow you have been busy. I love all your projects. I'm especially fond of the red fingerless mittens. (I love red, and the interesting pattern). And the flower basket shawl is beautiful. A perfect accessory for this chilly weather.

Some beautiful knits! Great job!! Is the sweater you're wearing hand knit, too? It's really cute.
