A doggy bag in heavy lace weight yarn

17. juni 2007 23:09:02

I used 2 strands of heavy lace weight 100% cashmere yarn and 4 mm needles and cast on 40 stitches and started to knit. I ended up with the little dog which I found in a pattern book. The brown yarn was an Odds and Ends set and the blue was from Richard’s regular stock. The two yarns have behaved differently after washing with shampoo in hand hot water. The brown has not bloomed as much as the blue but I think this enhances the texture of the bag. My son’s girlfriend who loves dogs was delighted with the gift.

This is the Unst Stole from Heirloom Knitting by Sharon Miller, knitted with 100% lace weight silk in the colour Mauve. I use 2.00 mm needled but 2.25 would be better for this yarn.

DK SILK

26. maj 2007 14:03:19

This garment is knitted with DK weight noil silk, Sand Mix colour on 4.5mm needles to my own design. The guage is 21stitches by 28 rows to 4 " (10cms) and the garment fits 40/42 " chest. It weighs (without the button) 238gms. and took exactly 1000 yards, which is, obviously, approximately just under one and a half cones. This yarn is super for this style of summer garment and is a joy to wear. The picture shows the garment with my own label sewn into the back of the neck.

Scarf in 2 strands 2/28 cashmere

21. maj 2007 12:47:49

This is a scarf I have just finished using 2 strands of 2/28 laceweight. I hand-dyed it first (using Omega dyes in the microwave) a process which removes all the spinning oils. It is knitted on 5 mm needles, and has been washed and dressed since it was made.

The patterns are from a shawl in a photo of an Orkney couple, taken at the end of the 19th Century.

Lily camisole in 2/28 NM Lace weight smooth silk

19. maj 2007 19:07:01

Finally a completed project to post! This is a top I made for my daughter using three strands of 2/28 NM Lace wieght smooth silk in the color Bonbon. The pattern I used is Louet's ever popular Lily. Needles used for the body were 2.5mm. The top took substantially less (maybe 3/4) of a cone of yarn.

Angora/lambswool dk weight swatch

19. maj 2007 18:45:05

This is a swatch I knitted using a sample Richard sent me of the angora/lambswool blend in dk weight. The guage/tension I got is 23 stitches x 32 rows = 4"/10cm using US #6/4.25mm needles. I usually knit to the guage stated on the yarn/pattern. The fabric produced is beautiful - soft to the touch with a gentle halo from the angora.

Just finished my first project with RIchard's wonderful yarn. THe garment turned out nicer than expected. While it is 87 degrees here in Florida, this top is light and easy to wear, infact I am currently working on a wrap to complete a "twin set"
