EE Kcal Project Progress

I'm moving along smoothly with my EE Kcal project, which is the deep neck Pullover by Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton, from Knit Simple 2006 issue. I substituted the yarn for Takhi Donegal Tweed and using Kathmandu Dk yarn in grape for the constrasting band. I've begun working on the front... so will see you all soon.

Vintage Crochet

Hey All!

I added a new old technique tutorial to my blog for those who are interested. It is an old crochet technique called broomstick lace. Many of you crocheters may already use this technique, but I had forgotten all about until my attendance at Stitches West where the ladies at Diva Stitch Studios refreshed my memory. Broomstick lace involves using both a crochet hook and a knitting needle or dowel or broomstick (hence the name), basically a round stick of any material. I am currently working on a jacket using broomstick lace and crochet ribbing.

You can see my full tutorial here:

Amazing Gryffindor Bag

EE KCAL Project

I am making nice progress on my Swap Bag, in between socks of course. I love this slip stitch motif knitting technique. It looks like the more complicated stranded colorwork or intarsia knitting, but is just a simple slipping of stitches of one color in the row.

Scholar Collar-Finished

Click to Enlarge

I really liked making this. Basic garter stitch. Some cute buttons. What's not to like? I think that everyone should make at least one. It's a great stash buster. You can read details about the yarn I used HERE.
