WIP #3

Originally uploaded by annsy

You can't really tell the scale from this photo, but this project is tiny. TI-NY. The needles are size #0000, and the "yarn" is really embroidery thread.

It's going to be a beaded bracelet - the Maryella from Knitty. What you also can't tell from this photo is that there are about 1700 beads strung onto the working yarn. That was pretty tedious, but it should go quickly now that I have the beads all done. This is a surprise for a friend who asked for prayer during Lent -- this is my prayer bracelet for her. I hope she likes it!

WIP #2

This is the Cozy shawl from Knitty. I've had my eye on this pattern for a couple of years now, and I'm finally doing it! I love love love the yarn -- all rainbowy and so soft -- and it's a simple 8-row repeat pattern. I hope it will open up a little bit more when I block it. I want it to be wide enough to use as a wrap, but not too wide to use as a scarf.

Work in Progress #1

This is the Habitat Cabled hat. I don't get to work on it much, now that I'm deep into the cables. This is the second cabled project I've ever done, and the first time I've worked from a chart. It's a little bit of a challenge for me -- in a good way -- and it takes concentration. With a 19-month-old around, I don't have a lot of concentration time! I'm having fun seeing how the hat is developing, though, and the yarn is divine. I hope it fits me when I'm done -- I went down a needle size, since I usually knit kinda loose, but the cables make me tighten up. Should be warm on my head next winter!
