knittedyarns Polly's Pink Recycled Cotton Sweater Finished!

Despite being a small child’s sweater, the Eloise Sweater took longer than anticipated to knit. Perhaps it was the fact that I tend to knit cotton on smaller needles since cotton has a tendency to stretch. For a child, this may not be a bad thing since the sweater could grow with the child. For […]

knittedyarns Mom’s Improvised Sweater – Knitting Instructions Included

To show that I come by my ability to visualize and adapt knitting patterns naturally, I am showing off my mother’s grey improvised sweater. I gave my mom this wonderful grey linen blend which contains flecks of white since my mother always has room for one more grey item in her wardrobe. One of my […]

knittedyarns Green Mitered Tank Top Done!

My Green Mitered Tank Top in 100% cotton with slubs is finished. I used Norah Gaughan’s pattern in the Summer 2009 Vogue Knitting and love the shaping as I have mentioned before. I can’t recommend this pattern enough. Like many of Norah Gaughan’s patterns, the shaping is unusual. It starts with almost twice the number […]

knittedyarns Wedding Sweater-Klimt Vest Needs Sleeves

One of the problems with using a vest pattern to make a sweater is that you need to reassess the armholes to ensure that they work for a sweater and that you’re on your own for knitting the sleeves. This is the challenge that I face with Jean Moss’ Klimt Vest.  To help me, I […]

knittedyarns Wedding Sweater Inspired by Jean Moss Klimt Vest

  For our wedding, I promised my husband a sweater. While many of my knitting friends would say that he’s gotten his share of knitted goods including a Honeymoon Vest in Noro Sakura, I am making him another sweater. As with any wedding present, I’ve allowed myself a year to complete it. This would be […]

knittedyarns New Spring Sweater in the Works!

  Spring brings with it a sense of renewal. From a knitting perspective, that means time to start a new sweater project.  While I have been testing some of the new summery yarns that I got at a recent yarn swap to see what the fibers want to be, I am going to make a […]

knittedyarns 2007 – The Year in Yarn

Looking back, 2007 was a year where my knitting made significant progress. When I consider the projects that I completed this year, I wonder where I found the time to make them all! By category, here are my 2007 finished objects: SWEATERS Black and Red with Fair Isle Crewneck Sweater – Made from Karabella cashmere […]

knittedyarns Fishtail Lace Top-The Saga Continues

After testing a number of different lace patterns, I decided to use a plain stocking knit stitch for the top portion of the sweater and the main part of the sleeves.  The rationale for this design change was that using two different lace patterns involved more complex changes in terms of math and shaping and […]

knittedyarns Origami Cardi Progress

The Origami Cardi has been a challenge due to the unusual shape. While I’m adept at modifying knitting instructions for  yarn and needle size, this project requires more faith since it doesn’t conform to routine sweater shapes. Despite this, I’ve really enjoyed working on the sweater. Here are some initial shots of it now that I’ve finished […]
