This is an early version with a slightly different neckline. Ahhh. The challenge of necklines. Argh!
This too is the same early version when I tried just the black Sirdar as the neckline. We didn't ike it and I reknit the whole thing a third time for the final version.
This was a quick snap of the Bam 13 before I shipped it off for inclusion in Stitch n Bitch Nation. Sadly, I didn't take Bam's photo in it. (He looked amazing in it.) I still have to knit him this version!!! How ironic. Hi honey. Named a sweater after you but guess what? I didn't knit one for you yet! That's just wrong of me isn't it. ;-)
This was a ribbed scarf I made for me!!!! *sigh. But it managed to look more suited to Bam. Dammit. He looks so good in scarves. I think this winter will be scarf mania around here!
I have made many wristbands now. My conclusions are:
I like the Cascade Fixation but you gotta make it waaaay longer than you think you want it because your sweat will make it shrivel up!
This number is about the size of a wristwatch now.
I'm going for more of a 8-9 white stripe thing now. or....pink stripe!
This is a mad scarf for my step daughter Charlotte over in England. I wish I would've made it skinnier. Ahhhh. hindsight is 20/20.
This was a housewarming prezzie for our good friends Jo (of the Dogs D'Amour) and Caroline. Check out the little houses on there. awwwwww. Ain't it cute? I learned a lot from this from following the pattern but kinda hated making it and found this style of thing just not up my alley.
Made these for Bam with a cashmere blend tweed in black of course. They're a bit on the bulky side for gloves but they are very warm for late night computer frenzies.

Another 'knit in an evening project!"
This is for our friend who wears vintage Levi's and a lot of earth tones.
Yarn used is FFF Funky in color #33.
Knit on 35's.
How can you lose? Italian wool/acrylic...2 hours....handknit prezzie for best friends bday! Good stuff.
A basic red/black striped scarf for my rough and tumble step son. He wore it right away and dropped it on the floor 5 times in the first hour. I was laughing cuz I planned for that and used Lion Brand stuff so it's like totally washable dude.
Ahhhhh. My first foray into a 'hank' of ribbon yarn. This was very early on in my knitting and I got the hank and just started knitting my mom's scarf. That's right. I didn't wind it in to a ball! OMDG! The tangles were unbelievable. But I persevered (I loved this yarn) and managed to spend something like 4 hours of untangling/winding time and finally was able to knit it.
My mom loves this and proudly announces to complete strangers that her daughter knit it for her. :-)
Check out the lovely colors on that ribbon yarn!
I love this scarf! One of the few things that I actually knit for myself. A yarn combo of Mohair and Filatura Brilla yarn. This is one of those, K 3 rows, then do a bunch of YO's on the next row. I knit this while I engineered a band in our studio. Which means I knit on my breaks and got funny looks from them. Of course, now they all want a scarf too. ha ha!
Knit this in an evening.
1 Karabella Labirinth in pink: #31305
1 Katia Sevilla ribbon yarn in black.
2 Pep Leo by Lana Grossa in #408 (pink/brown) furry.
Knit on 35's.
Cast on 10 with Labirinth and Sevilla.
Knit 4 rows.
Knit 2 rows with Pep Leo double stranded.
Carry on 4 rows and 2 rows.
Knit until mega mega long to double wrap around neck and look like fashion queen.
*This was my prototype. For the rest, I will twist the Pep around the other yarn so it's not such a long carry along.
This one is for my step daughter Samantha in England. She has very pale skin and is quite petite so I thought pure white would suit her.
