knittedyarns Maine Bound Knitting

Visiting our friends in York, ME has become a mid-July event where we combine great friends, ocean air, good food and knitting. As a surprise, I brought my friend Amanda the set of Heirloom Lace Placemats. Unfortunately, I miscalculated my knitting time and was shy of finishing the last placemat. Despite my efforts to knit […]

knittedyarns Heirloom Lace Doily Placements on Long Beach

After being stalled on the train home from Montauk last weekend, my husband wasn’t up for making the trek out to the beach. Instead we went to Long Beach which is about an hour from New York City. This still allows us to get out of the city and experience the sandy beaches of Long […]

knittedyarns Hemlock Ring Blankie Ruffles – Opps!

My Hemlock Ring Blanket is making s-l-o-w progress. This is attributable to the fact that as the blanket grows so do the number of stitches. Further, since the Hemlock Ring Blanket has gotten too large to be contained on my longest 10.5 needle, I have switched to Denises where I can keep adding to the […]

knittedyarns Shiri Mor's Botanica Medallion Sweater from Vogue Knitting

When I started knitting lace doilies, one of my friends suggested that I check out the pattern on the cover of Vogue Knitting Summer 2009. It’s an unusual pattern by Shiri Mor. It’s more of a vest than a sweater. It consists of a center circle knit in the round like a doily and a […]

knittedyarns Heirloom Lace Doily Placemats

My Heirloom Lace Doily Placement project is half done! I am using a free heirloom lace pattern that I came across on Ravelry. I choice Liz Snella’s  pattern since it had natural breaks for color changes; also it has text and charts which are helpful. For color changes, there are areas where there are 3-4 […]

knittedyarns Not Your Grandmother's Antique Lace Doilies

Of late, I have been drawn to old fashioned lace doilies. It’s not that I have a burning need for lace doilies or that I am redecorating every flat surface of my apartment with perfectly round circles of tiny little stitches of white knitting cotton. Rather it’s the way that the patterns emerge as you […]

knittedyarns Beach Knitting-Hemlock Ring Blankie Progresses

Beach knitting is one of my favorite forms of knitting in public (KIP). Unlike subway knitting where I’m filling time that would otherwise be unproductive, I enjoy being on the beach where the constant sound of the ocean kissing the shore is reassuring and peaceful.  With knitting in hand, I combine two of my favorite […]

knittedyarns Black Malabrigo Fountain Pen Shawl Begun

Based on  the recommendation of Alyssa, the manager at The Point, I decided to use the two skeins of black Malabrigo merino sock yarn for the Fountain Pen Shawl in the Spring 2009 Interweave Knits magazine. The yarn is scrumptious. It’s a delight to touch and pet! After the Shetland Scarf that I made for […]

knittedyarns Hemlock Ring Blankie-Vacation Projects Begin!

Lately, I’ve been bitten by a lace doily bug. There is some about knitting round and round and watching the pattern slowly evolve. Perhaps its the influence of Marion Kinzel’s Lace Knitting Volume 1. As a result, I’ve been trolling Ravelry and the internet for vintage lace doily patterns. In the process, I kept finding […]

knittedyarns Another Wedding-Related Present Finished!

Another wedding-related gift is finished just under the one year deadline. It’s the grey  ribbon lace scarf turned shawl which is a gift for my sister who was my matron of honor. My sister liked my red and purple  Koigu Lace Ribbon scarf  so I made the scarf 99 stitches wide for a shawl width.  […]
