FO Friday (3) Part 2: Susi (and bf)

Friday, August 3, 2012

Thanks to Tami's Amis for hosting FO Fridays
This is the 2nd part of our FO Friday! This time we'll talk about Susi (and her BF's projects) for the last 2 months.


New Ziggity:

I made another Ziggity, This time for myself. I made this one in laceweight and it really came out smallish. It's more like a shawlette but it is great to wear when it's actually warm outside. I do love the Malabrigo lace yarn. Colors are Marron Oscurro (brown) and Sapphire Green (well green LOL). It's really soft - love this one.

Log Cabin Blanket:

This blanket was a family project. We were a bit broke after some weddings we had to attend so it was finally time to attack the stash. I started the pattern and knew ASAP that I needed some more action in it. So I started to make stripes in the first square. When I was done I needed something new so I looked  up some dishcloth patterns and used those. I listed them all on the ravelry page. I do like how it turned out. It's experimental but well I adore that. Oh and as a finish I added a glittery purple colored icord edge to the whole thing. 

After seeing Caro's magnificent Catkin I had to make my own. I fondly called it the purple tentacle- I adore this color combination. The pattern was fun. While knitting it I often thought it was a bit over-explained and it actually confused me at times. In hindsight it was a great knit. So much fun and well not boring at all. Makes it hard to find a next knit. *wink*

Shapely Boyfriend cardigan:
My first real garment. I selected this pattern cuz it looked easy and well doable. It was sooo boring to knit. I hate purling and I should never ever try to knit a stockinette cardi (she says while looking at the new stockinette cardi on her needles). It was good to learn how to make a cardi- not sure I will wear it outside though.

Summer Ribbed Lace Bolero
This pattern is fun and easy and I love those boleros. I could use one in every color imaginable. Just sad that the cotton always gets soooooooooooooooooooo huge after washing. Meh. Looked pretty while it was still fitted.
