With all the knitting going on, I think I should change the name of the blog to Knit Chic instead of Sew Chic. Just kidding, but yes, it seems 2012 was the year for knitting for me. I really do hope to sew more in 2013 because I sure do miss it!
No sewing yet, but the knitting continues....
This cowl scarf, modeled by my daughter, was a gift for my mom. It suits my mom much better in size than it does Emily. I liked this cowl so much that I'm half tempted to make myself one. I particularly like it when worn as a hood.
Pattern: Honey Cowl
Yarn: Lion Brand Amazing in the Glacier Bay colorway
This next hat and scarf set was made for my dad, modeled by my son. I don't know that my dad will ever wear it, but I thought it might be warm for him in the cold Wyoming weather. (I'm not there, so I'll never know).
Pattern: One Row Handspun Scarf
Yarn: Lion Brand Tweed Stripes
With the remains of the Amazing yarn for my mom's cowl, I made a scarf and hat. Okay, the whole truth is that I didn't have enough leftover yarn so I had to buy another skein. I do like this yarn even though it is a wool/acrylic blend. It's not that fun to knit with (fuzzy and a bit splitty--yes, that's a word), but it is so soft and I love the excitement of watching the colors play out.
Pattern: Scrunchable Hat and Scarf
Yarn: Lion Brand Amazing
