I have learned SO much in the last couple of months about knitting! And it has become my evening 'wind down' The KAL started in January with a pair of toe-up socks. Click here to see the first sock.
This was the February project, a pair of fingerless gloves (fingerless mittens really). They are incredibly warm! And I just love the pattern on them. They were so easy! I think I will send off some of my shetland and mohair and have it made into yarn that I can make some more of theses for next winter. And maybe go ahead and make it a fill mitten.
March's project was call 'Stripes Alive'. Well, I did not really get stripes but some interesting 'pooling' instead. I also did not make an effort to try and make them match, but I think they are very colorful! I also tried, for the first time, to use a circular needle to knit them using the 'Magic Loom Method'. I was amazed at how simple it was to use this method! And since the pattern has a 'wave' in it it was very easy to make the two socks the same lenght! (unlike the first pair).
April's project is also a striped sock, but the strips are a little bigger and I took the time to make them close to matching. I also tried 'Two at a Time' using the 'Magic Loom Method' and I just can't believe I am really doing it!! I will finish the two socks at the same time and they will be the same size!! It really was not as hard as I thought it would be. Still have a long way to go on these.
