I knit these entrelac leg warmers for Tanya for her birthday. The yarn is a lovely shimmery black-and-teal, and I paired it was another teal yarn. It reminded me of the northern lights.
Ander is “helping” me knit Chris’s new sweater.
Ruby has been having a great time crafting lately, she’s been getting better at origami and fold all kinds of sweet things for everyone. She also finished this little scarf, from a loom-knitting kit that grandma Wendy gave her for her birthday.
I knit this little neckwarmer as a last minute gift. I used the My So Called Scarf pattern as a base, and used seed stitch on the edges (same number of stitches as the body) which ended up ruffling nicely because of how the stitch pattern in the body contracts the fabric.
So I knit these originally a long time ago, and was very happy with them at first, but then they started slipping and slouching. I really didn’t want it to be a wasted effort (and I love the yarn), so I took out the foot and knit 4 more tiers of entrelac with 1 less stitch per block. It pulled in the ankle nicely, and voila, leg warmers!
Being at the totally amazing location of the Marin County Civic Center, I had get special pictures of everything I’d knit that I had with me. This one had been photographed before, but I felt like this needed another try, it’s hard for a person to be model and stylist at the same time.
