Will Work For Yarn Swap #1

Awhile ago, I showed you the package I got from Sweetm.

Well, here are the items I knit for her from it, all unblocked (I wanted them to be clean when I sent them to her, kind of icky to know that other people have been wearing your clothes…)

I love the scallops on the bottom.  They are sooo pretty!

Pattern: Tess
Yarn: Rowan Spray
Needle: Size 11, 15

I forgot to take a picture of the FO…  I had some problems with gauge, probably because the yarn is more or less DK weight instead of bulky, but it seemed to block out okay.  Very soft yarn.

Pattern: Emmaline
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cotton Angora
Needle: Size 10 1/2

I didn’t take a picture with the buttons.  Too bad.  They were really cute and huge.  This is the secret project I sent to her, because I had soo much extra Rowan Spray that she said I could keep and I didn’t want to keep it.  Now I just have two skeins left and I don’t know what I’ll do with it!  By the way, I finished this project 3 days.  Super Bulky is super fast.

Pattern: Storm
Yarn: Rowan Spray
Needle: Size 15

Sweetm has been so awesome.  She let me keep the leftovers and sent me a whole pile of alpaca fiber as my payment!  These batts are huge…  I’m used to itty-bitty ones, I guess!

I’m playing another round with her, socks this time, which I’ll show you next time.

    This is SO cool that you have time to do this. And it looks like you’re having such fun with it.

    Maybe one day when I retire, I can play too!!!
