Happy 2013 to everyone! I hope your holidays were fun and restful. I got a couple of things to show you guys so, let's jump right in:
First up is the Martha Cowl that I made for my bud, Gretchen. I used Lion Brand Fishermen's Wool in Maple Tweed. This is one of my favorite crochet patterns of all time. Unfortunately, the designer has pulled the pattern from Ravelry and it hasn't been up for almost three years. Major bummer if any of you crocheters missed out...
Hopefully, you can see the flower that I sewed on. I think the Maple Tweed doesn't help the flower to stand out but the cowl did need something so I just left it as it.
Then I whipped up these fingerless mitts for my friend, René using the pattern from Creative Yarn's blog. I used Knit Picks Telemark in the Caution colorway. I really liked the double moss stitch pattern; it was a fun knit.
Then I got a crafty, little gift from my long-time Ravelry buddy, Denise. What a nice surprise while opening mail. So gorgeous!
This is just a little peak at what I am working on. This is project number one for the brown bag knit-a-long over at the Just One More Row Podcast group. This will be a hat for Angelo. I'm planning on knitting the biggest size - just in case. The yarn is Manos del Uruguay Maxima that I picked up from my local yarn shop. The pattern is Aviatrix and it's free on Ravelry!
Lastly, I made another Cyber Zombie. One of my French students had a hankering for a zombie so, I had to make her one. She is definitely crochet-worthy.
Next time I post, I hope to show you a few more finished objects and share some New Year's resolutions.
