Green tuck lace shawl

I had some beautiful silk and wool yarn blend that I decided to make a tuck lace shawl out of on my brother KX350 knitting machine. I used 60 needles and started with an E wrap and did the first 10 rows plain then for the tuck lace stitch I put on hold every third needle and did three passes then three passes off hold. I set the tension dial to 5. The length is 526 rows. Then I wet blocked it overnight. I noticed when I blocked it there were a few places on the edges that the needles did not pick up fully so I had to make some minor repairs. Overall I think it turned out OK.

Lamb’s Pride Scarf

I was able to finish this beautiful scarf in only two evenings. I used two skeins of Lamb’s Pride in this wonderful shade of blue. The stitch is a linen stitch.

  
  
  

Thick and quick winter hat

I was able to make this very basic and easy winter hat with a pom-pom and it only took about 45 minutes. I used lion Brand yarn wool ease thick and quick. I also found this video tutorial on YouTube that gave me the basics on how to create the hat. You could really make a lot of these in one weekend and they would make great Christmas gifts.


Tunisian Crochet Wall Hanging

 

 

 

This is a wall hanging I made in a basic Tunisian crochet stitch.  I made it from an Italian wool and stained the wood to go with the tones on the yarn.  I also added hanging brackets to the back of the top so it could be easily hung on the wall.  I might have to do more of these!

Striped scarf

This is a jumble of nylon, silk, cotton, merino wool, and microfiber. It turned very bumpy but soft from the sublime merino wool. See photos for yarns used. I also used a bamboo 8mm hook and the stitches are all half double crochet.

Lana bambu purples scarf

I used this wonderful Lana bambu yarn to make this scarf. The stitch is a half double crochet through the back loop which makes little ridges and gives the fabric a wonderful texture.

Shell stitch scarf

I’m finally getting around to posting his finished scarf. This is from one huge hank of bamboo wrapped wool yarn I got from the Fibre Studio Shop in Charlotte NC. I think it was 720 yds. I can’t find the label but remember it was five ply sport weight. The yarn was a little difficult to work with at first but I got use to it.

Countryside Ruffle Scarf

For this scarf I used Sundance Countryside yarn which is Acrylic/Mohair/Wool and used a simple ruffle pattern. It’s a modified version of the LoDo scarf pattern on Ravelry.
