Here are another few of the fair entries for this year.
At right, an adult cap. This was the first item I finished since the last fair, and truthfully, I nearly entered it as fair isle.
Yarn is a blend of wool and ack. Pattern?? Who the heck can remember?
This year's Red Scarf Project scarf.
Baby set (2- or 3-piece) using a very old pattern from Spinnerin (c) 1975 The New Wee Moderns (so, before I was knitting for my own kids) for the hat and booties. The sweater is a basic top down with the same texture knitted in.
Yarn is Cascade Cherub (all synthetic) that I am dearly glad to (finally) be rid of.
Cowl from (I think) an IK special edition. Yarn is Fibranatura Baby Merino, another one I'd love to be done with. The color is called Johnny and is blue, tan, and olive drab.
Felted "other," a cute little vase knit from the last of some Noro Kureyon that I had stashed a good long time. Pattern from one of the newish Cascade books.
This one was fun to knit and felted up quite nicely. I will probably use it just for show. Perhaps with some dried grasses.
Felted purse. Needs a button in the center of the flower, I think. Too late now!
Yarn is from SERRV (fair trade non-profit). Want more. No longer available. Drat!
Lap robe in the Mason Dixon ball band dishcloth pattern.
I used Decor/Encore odd balls in 3 colors.
So now you have seen everything I photographed before dropping my stuff at the fairgrounds. And now, I wait.
Wow! Gorgeous knits, and I am mad about the purse. I am looking forward to seeing them up close and personal next week. I'm in Emmaus, and I enjoy spending time admiring all the needlework at the Fair.
Love that gorgeous ball-band blanket--it is such a great pattern for a blanket and using up bits and pieces. Love the squishy factor with that stitch. How big did you make it?Post a Comment
