I tend to be pretty wordy on this blog o’ mine. I get going and I get so excited and passionate about knitting that I just can’t help myself. I got to thinking about my favourite knitting blogs, and the thing they had in common was tons of photographs. I’m a very visual person, so it surprises me to realize that I tend to have more text than images in my posts.
So my goal today is to be a bit less wordy and more visual. I shall tell my stories in pictures rather than in words.
First, my sister asked me to create a few “minion” hats for a friend of hers who was dressing up as one for Halloween. Please ignore the poor quality of the photo, I took it in my bathroom mirror. Sorry. (And yes, I AM wearing a Superman shirt, thank you very much.)
I was pretty happy with the results, but more importantly, so was her friend. Pattern can be found here.
Remember awhile ago when I said I was entering some knitting into my local fall fair to be judged? Well, here are some images to tell that story:
And finally, I’ve finished this year’s autumn set, which is a headband, cowl and fingerless mitts. Remember in my last post I showed you the fingerless mitts in progress? Yeah, well, I decided I didn’t love the fit. And I wanted them to match the texture of the Serralada cowl I’d decided to make, so I ripped ‘em out and started from scratch. Here are a few photos I took outside on a glorious fall day:
I’m really quite pleased with the finished product, and I can’t wait to start wearing them out in public. The weather is quickly becoming perfect for that. The days are getting cooler and the air is crisp. It’s really my favourite time of year. Yarn: Debbie Bliss Glen in “Rosehip.” Serralada cowl pattern can be found here.
I hope you are enjoying your knitting wherever you may be, whatever the season. What projects are you working on? What are your recent finished objects?
