    Diamond Scarf

    Posted by twit2knit on July 21, 2011

    Finished a new scarf, this is for me. It’s a simple diamond lace design and I’ve even uploaded the pattern for anybody that wants it. I used 5mm(US8) needles and 1.5 skeins of Rico Design Kids Classic Aran. I did 18 repeats of the pattern as that’s how much yarn I had. I would have prefered to do 20-25 repeats, although my scarf did turn out to be 7inches wide and 40 inches long so it’s still good for me as I’m quite short.

    This pattern can be made any width and any length and is both written and charted, please feel free to share any finished items you’ve made from my designs as I’d love to see them.

    So many ideas, not enough hours in the day!

    Posted by twit2knit on March 15, 2009

    I finished the beret I started on Thursday, I really love the colours. I would though, I dyed the yarn myself using Procion dyes in Brilliant Pink and Deep Purple. The yarn is from DT Craft & Design 75/25 BFL/Nylon sock yarn, the pattern is called The Rainbow Beret by Irene Lundgaard and is knitted on 3mm (US 2.5) needles.

    I also finished one of my mother’s day projects. Old Shale, a scarf I knit for my mother-in-law using Patons Spirit in fern and 8mm (US11) needles.

    I’ve kind of had a few ideas rolling around the last few days, more pattern ideas. it’s just a concept at the moment but I’m hoping it’ll develope into enough to maybe do and ebook/pdf type thing, I don’t want to say much about it right now untill I’m finished with it but let’s just say bricks and mortar play a role!

    Victorian Lace Today Scarf

    Posted by twit2knit on October 21, 2008

    As usual life got in the way and I ended up having to do a rush job on this, although I still really like it, it’s not what I originally planned.

    I did do the Stripes and Torchon lace on page 158 for the center panel, just didn’t use the border from that pattern. I only cast on 41 stitches as I did two of the stripes and repeated the pattern 12 times. After blocking the scarf turned out 10.5 inches wide by 60 inches long.

    Instead I chose the wide Clarence border on page 82.

    I used a superwash sock yarn that I hand dyed in the slow cooker. Also, as I didn’t have anywhere to block the scarf I doubled it over and blocked on the ironing board seemed to work fine.

    It’s mum’s birthday today and I’m meeting her at lunchtime for a coffee and will give her the scarf then. I’ll try and get some pictures of her wearing the scarf and upload them later.

    Feather and Fan scarf.

    Posted by twit2knit on September 17, 2008

    I started this quite a while ago but kept being distracted by other knits 🙂

    It’s just a simple feather and fan pattern that I got from an afghan book I have.
    I’ve also done a small amount of spinning with the purple merino roving I got a while ago. I love this roving, it’s so soft and fluid, just hoping I can do it justice hance the fact I’m taking my time with it.

    Another Birthday Scarf

    Posted by twit2knit on September 10, 2008

    Well I finished my husband’s scarf on the morning of his birthday and he really likes it. obviously it’s not as pretty as the scarf I made for my gran as he’s a bloke and doesn’t ‘do’ pretty lace.

    It’s a very simple knit that has a pleasing effect and works up real quick. I could have got away with CO 20 stitches with the Robin Chunky I used as the finished item ended up quite wide but husband seems to like that. The pattern is called Jute Rope and is by Rebecca Sweinhagen, I also didn’t use the recommended needle size as thought the knitted fabric would have ended up far to stiff, so I used 8mm needles. This also helped with the speed of the project.
