Knitting: Cardigan, Vest
My daughter brought me a commercially-made sweater she found in a vintage shop. The sweater was not hand-knit, so there’d be no pattern. She knew she was buying it for me to sort out how it was constructed—knowing that this is my very favourite thing to do!
Knitting: Christmas Stocking, Socks - Other
In my family, a grandmother’s name is Honey. And in my family, it’s Honey’s job to make the Christmas stockings! So here are mine—knit for my three-year-old granddaughters. The colors (7 in all) are seasonal, the bobbles add a little Christmas bling, and the hearts say “The person who made this loves you.”
I have a problem with rectangular and with triangular scarves: too many wraps in the former, too short tails in the latter. But these geometrical shapes are amenable to lace stitch patterns, so I’ve made lots of lace triangles and lace rectangles … and had them do nothing more than decorate my closet.
