Something Cozy :-)


Throw/blanket for my son :-)
So happy to be using yarn from my stash bought in 2008!!! I do not know what I was thinking buying this color to knit myself something, but it is perfect for a 10 year old's throw :-)
I would love to make something cabled, but there is just not enough yarn for cables to get any good size for a cabled throw. Started with a different diamond pattern first, but my son said it looked too girly ;-) He liked the pattern I used for Gingembre mitts. It is simple, but looks great in aran weight and makes for a mindless TV knitting. 
Project can be found on Ravelry.





 Happy knitting,
Diana

Palessie and Afterglow Shawls.

Today I would like to share few of my projects/designs knitted few years back, but never photographed until recently :-)
One of them is Palsessie shawl. Knitted with ColourMart Silk 36/120nm DK wt., the shawl has amazing shine and drape. More details ont his project on Ravelry.




The second shawl I would like to show is Afterglow. This shawl is also knitted with ColourMart yarn, but this time it is ColourMart 18/52NM dk wt cotton/silk 50/50. Cotton adds crispier texture to the fabric while silk still gives plenty of drape. More on the project on Ravelry

Little Raava.




Raava hat, my 1st project for GAl2015 is done. Love the little hat. My son said the hat needs pom-pom, but I like the lace pattern in the crown and do not want to cover it. Will see what my sister wants for her daughter’s hat :-) I will see my niece on Thanksgiving, so will see if she cooperates for some pics :)
