Recent Yarny Finished Objects
Here are the other two projects I finished last week, both of which will be the subject of classes I’m teaching at The Yarn Shop. The schedule isn’t up yet, but I’ll be sure to mention it here when it is (for the, hmm, two of you who are reading who live in Bozeman?).
First off is my Easy Drop Stitch Scarf that I started with my yarn from Hill Country Weavers. The free pattern is so easy, and so, so gorgeous. I made this my “shop project” since I need something I can pick up and put down a lot at work, but I still finished it relatively quickly. I did have to do some un-knitting a few times when I’d lose track of where I was, and at the very beginning I was a little confused at what was a stitch and what to drop, but I got over that quickly. I absolutely love what the pattern does for the yarn– very nice! I’m going to be teaching a little workshop explaining the basics of technique, date and time TBD.
And here’s my Granny Square Market Tote from Vogue Knitting On the Go: Grannies! I think this pattern will make a perfect beginner crochet class. I used the yummiest yarn, Aracunia’s Patagonia Nature Cotton, and enjoyed every minute of letting it pass through my fingers. I really try not to be a yarn snob, but damn, it is nice to work with nice yarns.
So, now that I’m working at a fibery place, I have about ten zillion ideas a day of what I want to do next. And about ten zillion more things that I really should do first. One day I’ll learn to balance this.
