Circle scarf and bow brooch

Circle scarf and bow brooch

It’s about time to warm up my knitting needles again. I started knitting this scarf about two days ago while waiting for Sidra in his swimming class. This scarf is knitted on double pointed needle size 15 JPN/6.5 mm and only utilized K1P1 ribbing stiches, no eyelets, fancy lace, etc, because it seemed that my…

Short scarf

Short scarf

I’ve used this pattern to make a long grey scarf from 3 skeins of wool tweed yarn. There’s something about the pattern that makes knitting it very enjoyable, so I wanted to make another. This time I make a short scarf from one skein of Noro silk garden lite yarn, knitted with 4 mm needles….

The Owl and the snake

The Owl and the snake

Sidra has been down from influenza and skipped school for several days. Today is the fourth day and he’s feeling much better, but the first two days were really bad, so he (and I) was really sad. To cheer him up, I knitted these two animals. The snake is also a scarf, using the same…

Grey things

I finally finished the grey scarf that I mentioned in this post. The yarn is grey wool with little bits of colorful tweed on it, knitted in 3.5 mm knitting needles. So far, it is the smallest needles that I’ve used and it sure took a long time as I wanted a long scarf. At…

Dropped stitch scarf

Dropped stitch scarf

I think Sidra needs another scarf since he only had one, so I knitted this short scarf last night. The pattern is based loosely on a scarf pattern in one of the knitting pattern books that Yoshimi has so kindly sent me (thank you so much, Yoshimi!). The books are in Japanese, but one of…

Now that I know that Japanese knitting needles size are different than US needles, I finally use them for my first ‘proper’ knitting! My husband likes the color orange and he wants a scarf with stripes of orange on it, so I made it with these super bulky orange and beige yarn and JP15/6.6 mm…

Orange lace scarf

Orange lace scarf

The orange yarn was originally meant to be a knit hat, but I made mistakes with the stitches halfway and didn’t really know how to fix it. I think the yarn was not really a right choice for the hat anyway, so I unravel it and reclaimed the yarn for this crochet project. This scarf…
