The first project are two sweaters. The second, two tea cozies.
Mine, in progress. I'm waiting on the purple yarn to come in.
Lion Brand Pattern (FREE): Turtleneck sweater: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L0176.html?noImages=
Yarn: Knit Picks Brava Sport Yarn in Eggplant, Fairy Tale and Solstice Heather. It will be striped front and back with the collar and sleeves in Eggplant. http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/Brava_Sport_Yarn__D5420218.html
|Fairy Tale (more of a dark fuchsia than is shown here)|
Progress so far:
The stripping goes Fairy Tale at the top, eggplant in the middle, and solstice heather at the bottom. More later.
Sweater I made for Ash just before Christmas:
This book (got at Walmart) http://www.bonanza.com/listings/Bernat-Bonus-Book-6-Fun-Designs-to-Knit-Crochet/22214540 and Red Heart Super Saver Worsted Weight yarn in Perfect Pink and Orchid.
While I was waiting for my other yarn to come in, I made these cozies.
I had some crochet cotton to use up - in ecru and a variagated browns/greens and used size # 6 needles.
I had enough crochet cotton to do two of them, which is good, as I have two favorite tea pots about the same size. One was a gift from my late father-in-law from England, years ago.
Now to use leftover yarn to make a pad to put the teapots on.
