Daisy; or, In Which I Run Out Of Green Wool

June 15, 2009


Here is the second sweater for Doc Swatchy to take to Botswana. Never one to do something before the deadline is breathing down my neck, Adidas and I packed up the sweaters and will send them Priority Mail tomorrow.
Daisy Baby Sweater
This is the “Daisy” pattern from Knitty, designed by the Yarn Harlot.
It is a very cute raglan pattern. Unfortunately, I ran out of yarn half way through the sleeves, and had to dip back into the stash for some gray. I tried to tie it all together with the gray chain embroidery around the neck, center fronts, and bottom. It think it came out OK – maybe even better than if it was a solid green.

This is a top-down raglan baby sweater made from stash wool.
Raspberry and Chocolate Child Sweater
When I saw these 2 colors together I thought of a raspberry dessert with chocolate sauce.
Here’s the back:

This is the first of 2 sweaters for Doc Swatchy to take to Botswana.
Sorry about the fuzzy pictures. Those of you who read my other blog will know why.

Progress on Tilted Duster

January 13, 2008

I started my Tilted Duster in November, then put it aside for knitting holiday gifts. Here it is, as of last Saturday:

Since then I had to rip back practically the whole skirt because I was reading “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” (finally) and wasn’t paying attention.

They don’t call me Turtleknits for nothin’ :-).
