Our Nightshift Shawl - Learn Mosaic Knitting Pre-Pay KAL had the last class Wednesday afternoon! Now I didn't finish until Wednesday and then I blocked it yesterday...Next week I hope to get some more "finished" photos but here is mine! The quarterly KAL runs until the end of March so don't worry if you aren't finished yours yet!
I followed the recipe for mine for ten repeats!
Before blocking, the wingspan of my Nightshift was 57” and 30.25” deep. After blocking, the wingspan is 66.5” and 33.5” deep. I used the The Fibre Company Arranmore Light in Kinnego Bay from my leftover yarn stash as my main colour. For my contrast colours, I used Schoppel Wolle Starke 6 in 2 colours - one as the contrast colour in rows 1-20 and one as the contrast colour in rows 21-40.
The shawl is big enough to wear like this but also big enough to drape over your shoulders and have it stay on!
I love how everyone who is knitting the Nightshift for our KAL looks so different, beautiful and as individual as the yarns we chose! I snapped a photo of Kathy when she arrived on Wednesday! She used stash for her Nightshift!
Here is Karen’s all finished! Just beautiful! Karen used some Kelbourne Woolens Andorra and Schoppel Wolle Edition 3 for hers. Hopefully next week I will have photos of the rest of the Nightshift Shawls knit for our KAL!
I remembered to get a pic of the finished and almost finished October Hats that the Cable Hat Class knit just as they were leaving their last class! Here we have Pam, Jocelyne, Jen and Victoria. They all learned to do a tubular cast on, reading a chart and of course the cables.
In the photo above, Jen is wearing the Shambala Shawl by Melinda Measor that she knit along with Heidi for Galantine's Day!
Isn't it gorgeous! Photos really don't do it justice.
Jen taught her husband Jeff to knit...This is Jeff’s second knit project and second hat! This one is is the Sockhead Slouch Hat by Kelly McClure knit with fingering weight yarn!
Victoria knit her very first sweater for her little sweetie! She knit Lisa Chemery’s Tiered Baby Coat...Look how happy she looks in it!
The Tiered Baby Coat and Jacket is a wonderful chunky/bulky knit pattern using 6.0 mm (US 10) needles with a gauge of 3.5 stitches and 5.5 rows = 1 inch in stockinette stitch. It makes a great giftable jacket or coat since the pattern has the added bonus of options. How about knitting an adorable and warm little coat for the baby or toddler in your life? Or a cute little jacket? Or both! The pattern is knit top-down, with only minimal finishing. The sleeves are knit in the round. This is a very quick and easy knit!
Gramps by tincanknits is another pattern that is great to knit as a gift! I had the front bands of this Sock Monkey Gramps all finished BUT I pulled out the needles again to frog back to the stripes of the hem ribbing! Why did I frog it back? Because I forgot that I modified how I did my stripe to eliminate the purl bumps on my last one which I am knitting for the same person! So even though no one but me would know, I frogged back this morning.
