I cannot keep everything I knit. How many socks does a woman need? And how many scarves? Socks wear out, but scarves are forever... I have the Op-Art socks KAL going on, with complicated socks that take all my focus. So I try to knit simple inbetween projects for gifts.
Lintilla, een lichtjes asymmetrische driehoeksjaal. De gegolfde rand is gebreid met verkorte rijen, dat zorgt voor net genoeg afwisseling in een sjaal die voor de rest volledig uit ribbelsteek bestaat.
Gifts for women are mostly scarves, with yarn from stash and a pattern from my (virtual) library. This is Lintilla , a slightly asymmetrical triangular scarf, with a ruffled edge. These scallops are knit with short rows, so this makes this garter stitch scarf still entertaining to knit.
The pattern gives instructions to let you knit up the entire skein. You weigh your yarn, and when you have used a certain amount, you start decreasing. The yarn is Wollmeise, color: Magnolie medium. I found it too pink in the skein, but in the pictures I find this color flattering on me. Maybe I should keep this scarf for myself?
Sleeping Beauty. Je kan dit in verschillende groottes breien, van stola tot smalle sjaal (Sleeping Beauty's litte sister). Ik had maar 100gram kantgaren, ik deed het zelfs nog iets smaller.
The second scarf is Sleeping Beauty. You can knit this in diferent sizes, from stole to scarf (Sleeping Beauty's little sister). I did even a skinnier version, becaues I only had 100 gram of lace yarn.
The main pattern consists of small flowers. It's a bit labourious to knit, but the result is very nice.
You finish of with a broad boarder in mesh lace. Yarn used is Wollmeise lace in the color Ballerina. Et voilà! Two gifts finished. The purple one is already gifted to my best friend. Happy birthday Kristien!
