Knitting projects #SOL15

17 Mar

Today I looked back over the SOL posts I wrote last year and laughed because I made a similar post to today’s on March 6th, when I introduced the project and March 30th, when I finished it. So, today, you get the 2015 version.

My church has a school and the school holds an auction. I knit for the auction. This year’s project is a hat, gloves, scarf set.

I used to have an aversion to variegated yarn, but have fallen in love with it recently. I think it is the rhythm of the repeating pattern. Although it is the exact same yarn in all three projects, the colors manifest themselves in slightly different ways.

I was really happy with how these all turned out. I thought the scarf would kill me because it is a boring two-row repeat, for hundreds and hundreds of rows. I made it through series 1-3 of Prime Suspect.

Knitting gloves has become a new passion and some family members might be getting some gloves for Christmas. Might is the operative word. I have two other projects lined up; one for a baby shower coming in late April (I hope) and another will be the sweater I knit each year to raffle off at the Oregon Basset Hound Games. I know what the baby gift will be, but I’m still working out the design for the sweater.

    What talent you have! It is neat to see how the same yarn gives three distinct patterns in the different projects – a unity that ties the three projects together.

    Knitting is such a great hobby, therapy, and art. I love the hat/scarf/glove set! I think variegated yarns are prettier than they used to be. I’m also a knitter:). I’ve been writing more than knitting this month:).

      I’ve knit less this month, too. But I had to get this done. it was supposed to be turned in in february. The event isn’t until April and they know people will be late. So I felt I had to finish it soon. No new projects until the SOLC is over.
