Knitting: Recent FOs

I've been busy knitting lately and I'm excited to share some of my recent finished objects with you! If you're a fellow knitter (or crocheter -- a craft I'm determined to learn one of these days), you can find me on Ravelry at knittinglindsay.


Ravelry pattern: Basic Ribbed Socks by Kate Atherley
Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Happy Feet, colorway 27
I'm happy to say I can cross something off my list of New Year's resolutions. Knit my first pair of socks -- check! My knitting and blogging buddy Veronica (visit her blog here) sent me this sock yarn for Christmas and it was the motivation I needed to finally attempt sock knitting. Which, as it happens, was waaay easier than I thought it would be.


Ravelry pattern: Saroyan by Liz Abinante
Yarn: Malabrigo merino worsted, colorway Stone Blue
My mom's birthday is in early January and I knit her this gorgeous (if I do say so myself) scarf from creamy blue Malabrigo. Incidentally, I'm wearing the shirt and earrings my mom got me for Christmas in this picture.

Ravelry pattern: Tuesday Night Cowl by Susan Lawrence
Yarn: Malabrigo merino worsted, colorway Dusty
This cowl was a Christmas gift for my best friend Katie. It was the first time I ever knit with Malabrigo and now I'm hooked! Not only was the yarn soooo soft and such a pleasure to knit with, I'm in love with this pretty pink color. I have another skein and plan to knit something for myself with it. (P.S. I wanted to wear some sort of jacket to model this cowl so it didn't look silly with a short-sleeved shirt, and apparently this is the only real jacket I brought to Hawaii with me. And then I rememebered why I only brought one jacket -- about 30 seconds into picture-taking I was sweating like a pig.)

  1. I love my scarf for my birthday present. The yarn is so soft and my favorite color too. I thought your socks turned out great too.


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
