Yarn Yarns: FO Friday

Filed under: Knitting, Photo — Tags: , — Cat @ 7:12 pm

I have had a good few weeks finishing off knitting projects. Partly because I have so many ideas of new projects I am desperate to start.

Another wash cloth. I adapted the NunuMaya I made last month to make it with eight petals:

I bought the extra yarn I needed and finished the Top Down Cable Hat that I showed you on Wednesday:

I would make some changes next time. At least I now know that you need 150-200 yards of yarn to make this hat. One ball only had 118 yards.

Finally, I finished Hannah’s Baby’s Blanket with plenty of time to spare for the Baby Shower:

It does not show up in the picture, but as well as the red and the black, there was also dark blue and dark green. I really like the suddenness of the red and subtleties of the blue and green. I knew the Baby Shower was in May so I planned to be finished by May. I even had time to attach Icord all the way round:

I’ve since found out that the baby shower is not until the end of May. Oh well, it is nice to be done.

I am starting Kate Gilbert’s Camellia which I will be using the blue cotton bam boo shown for the eight petaled NunuMaya in the first picture. In fact the NunuMaya was my swatch.

  1. Not quite true–the dark blue and dark green do show up (I noticed them before I read your description)–they’re just subtle.

    Very pretty washcloth, that.

  2. It might be my computer but I find it hard to see the green stripes in the picture and I sort of know where they are!
