I have a few projects on the go. The three projects that I am currently working on are featured here.
It is always good to have different styles of knitting on the needles.
Project #1 is a project easily knit in public. It does not need a great deal of concentration, sometimes referred to as mindless knitting. This is a great type of knitting to take to Knit Night at my local yarn store, as there are several distractions such as chatting and show and tell of finished products. I am knitting the rug on a 9mm circular needle using eight different colours of Cabin Fever; Northern Lights 100% chunky weight wool and is a pattern that I am developing.
Project #2 is a great project to knit anywhere. The very narrow scarf requires some concentration but is a pattern I do not have to refer to very often. A copy of the written pattern is always close at hand in my knitting bag in case of a brain lapse). I am knitting the scarf on a 3.25mm needle using Cabin Fever Cotton Tweed.
Project #3 is a project that needs concentration so is best knit in a quieter setting such as home. I use my magnetic board from Knit Picks to follow the rows and a marker to show the first needle. The pattern is a toy called Joris designed by Annita Wilschut. This pattern and other toy patterns by Annita are available here. Annita’s patterns are well written and easily followed. Pictures of two other toys, Vera and Karel, I have knit can be seen in my Toy Gallery.
The Pine Tree Bowl is a perfect Christmas decor addition. It would look so pretty filled with pine cones or other Christmas bobbles. The bowl is hand knit using burnt orange for the base and top trim with different sizes of pine trees in green against a tan background. It has been knit by hand using 100% merino wool and then felted. The dimensions are 6 inches tall with a circumference of 18 inches. The bowl can be hand washed in cold water, reshaped and stood to dry. To purchase the Pine Tree Bowl or to view other items available from Misener Knitz & Feltz click http://www.misenerknitz.etsy.com
