Knitting the Spring Beret

I finished knitting up the hat that I choose for myself! Everyone seemed to like a different hat, so in the end, I just had to go with my gut, the Spring Beret. Really, this just means that I need to make a couple more hats. 🙂

I used Knit Picks Capra in Turmeric – it’s a lovely cashmere blend. It was a smaller weight yarn than the pattern called for so I made the larger ‘slouchier’ version and it turned out just as I had hoped, just the tiniest bit slouchy. This was my first time to work lace and I learned a lot – it was a good pattern to try it out.

Strib Hat + choosing a hat for me

My little monkey needed a new warm hat since things have finally cooled off here in Austin. It’s been cold and rainy – perfect weather for knitting! He picked out his favorite colors: teal and green and I set to work on this free Strib Hat.

It’s a simple knit, but I like the progresssion of 4×4 rib, 2×2 rib then 1×1 rib to regular stockinette stitch.

Such a silly little monkey. (He likes to hide his vitamins in his cheek – doesn’t he look like a little squirrel?)

He hasn’t taken it off since I finished it for him (which is no small feat – he never wears hats!) and he’s showing it for show-and-tell at preschool today. Such a sweetheart!

Now I need to knit a hat for myself! Here are the four I’m considering:

Star Crossed Slouchy Beret

Sirle

Scallop Lace Hat

Spring Beret

Anyone have a vote on which one I should make?

Dirghagama and ombre

We’ve been in Chicago (yeah, it’s kinda awesome there) and I’ll update on that soon. I’m a bit excited that I finished something so I’m going to share that fist.

This Dirghagama baby cardigan is a free pattern on Ravelry and it knits up super fast since it’s knit with bulky yarn! I can’t believe that I knit this. It’s a Texas baby cardigan! Short sleeves are perfect. This one is going to it’s intended baby girl recipient this week.

I also was able to finish the rest of the ombre set I made for Monica and her sweet baby girl. I’m happy with how they all turned out!

kage sweater and baby things

Knitting really is such an impractical hobby when you live in Texas but I can’t seem to stop! I totally get sucked into browsing patterns and day dreaming my next project, which I have had a lot of fun doing on Craftsy, which I just discovered recently. I’m thinking about trying to make this chevron style beret once I finish up the other projects I’ve started…

I’ve made some good progress on the Kage Sweater – the back is done! At least this one is made out of linen.

Here’s how the back folds over to the front to form the neckline. Pretty excited…

I’m hoping to finish it by this fall. I don’t think the front will take long, but it seems I have been side tracked by making baby items for friends, because well, baby items are so much fun to knit! I just finished up these sweet little legwarmers from PurlBee and I’m pretty happy with how they turned out!

I’m looking forward to seeing pictures of these on some chubby baby girl legs!

kage sweater

I started knitting a new sweater a couple weeks ago before we left to go on vacation with my family – the kage sweater. I was inspired to do some colorwork after seeing Alphonoso’s color blocked Kage so I decided to do navy and grey stripes with a coral color block at the shoulders (although I was apparently subconsciously inspired by my Catch All Bag because the stripes are virtually the same color and size – I realized that after I was already 10 stripes in!). I’m using shibui linen in suit, sidewalk and poppy and it is a very interesting yarn to knit with. Very springy with a chain ply, it’s knitting up cloudlike into the lightest weight fabric (which is kinda important since it’s rapidly approaching the triple diget temperatures here in central Texas).

And if you can’t tell, I’ve finally caved and started instagramming.

KAL Wrap Up

Well, I finished knitting my first sweater in time for the KAL! Definitely a learning experience. I decided to modify the pattern a bit by not doing the solid knitted panel at the waist. I’m pretty happy with that decision. It was just the right length before blocking it and then I blocked it. It’s now much longer than I had wanted – more tunic length than t-shirt length. Oh well. It will be great with leggings.

Sophia Sweater Finished!

What I love? The color. The slouchiness. The breathability. Not a bad Texas sweater.

Sophia Sweater Finished!

Now I am going to finish those cute little toddler socks I started. And then I get to dream about what’s next!

summer knitting

I’ve been working on my sweater for the KAL and making some good progress! The yarn is very soft and lovely – I think it will be nice for the summer. It’s pretty quick knitting but a little more difficult to bring along to the playground.

Sophia Sweater

Which lead me to making some toddler socks for Jude with my leftover Madelinetosh Sock to tote around. Since I’ve already tried toe-up socks, I thought I would give top down socks a whirl, as well as learn how to knit two socks at once! After the initial yarn tangle, it turned out to be pretty easy. We’ll see how turning a heel goes from top down…

Toddler Socks

I’m already dreaming of my next summer knit, like this silken sweater (can I have any more expensive taste?) or this linen Hane shirt. Ahh, if only I had more free time!

Little Cable Knee Highs – Done!

Can you believe it? I finished knitting a pair of socks! I am very happy with how they turned out – they fit PERFECTLY. Although, I love the irony of finishing a pair of knee high WOOL socks right as the heat of summer is about to descend on central Texas. Ha. It may be a little while until I wear them. I am now very spoiled after knitting with Madelinetosh Sock (in candlewick). They seriously have awesome yarn in amazing colors. I want more.

Little Cable Knee Highs - Done!

I learned so many new techniques with these socks – increases (yo knit through back loop, m1r, m1l), decreases, magic loop, Judy’s magic cast-on for toe up socks, short rows, Jeny’s surprisingly stretchy bind off for the top, turning a heel. Whew. I love the tiny cable running up the back of the socks – reminds me of the old fashioned seam in stockings. I must say that I feel pretty confident in my knitting abilities now. Next socks I make, I’ll be knitting two at a time!

Little Cable Knee Highs - Done!

So confident, in fact, that I am going to take on my first knitted garment – the Sophia sweater as a KAL. I already bought the yarn – Universal Cotton Supreme in Emerald and it is knitting up so soft! As much as I wanted to do the sweater in Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in mineral, the color was no where to be found. Oh well. I think I may be happier with this cotton yarn for the summer. AND emerald is the pantone color of the year after all.

Sophia Sweater

I may have found a sweater winner! This Sophia sweater is worsted weight which is probably a good idea for a first sweater! It seems all the other patterns I love are fingerling weight which would take forever, which probably isn’t a good idea for a first knit garment. Also, it’s slouchy, which would cover a multitude of errors… and it’s light weight, which if I’m honest, will get a lot more wear than a pullover sweater.

Now I’m daydreaming about colors . . . Here are a few that have caught my eye from Madelinetosh Vintage… Any others you think I should consider?

I made a sock!

One down, one to go (and already started)! It fits beautifully too. (You’ll have to wait for me to finish the second one to get a modeling session.)

I used Jeny’s surprising stretchy bind off for the ribbing at the top, and just as the name suggests, it is extremely stretchy (and surprisingly easy)! And I used Judy’s Magic Cast-on for the toe. The two are made for each other.

I’m a little lost on how to block such a long sock. I think I’m going to give this wire hanger method a try because I don’t think a sock blocker that you buy would be long enough. Ah, we will see.

Little Cable Knee High - 1 Sock Complete!

Oh, I am so in love with the simplicity of these socks. That little cable adds just the perfect amount of detail and elegance.
