My Latest Knits

Brea Bag for my mom:

pattern: Brea Bag
yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, Cranberry
needles: US 9

This a bag I promised to make for my mom last year. It's fully lined with repurposed denim. I can't wait to finally give it to her this weekend!

Fern Lace Scarf
yarn: Spinning Bunny Merino/Tencel Hand Dyed Yarn, Blueberry Patch
needles: US 10, bamboo

I've made about a million scarves since I learned how to knit, but I've sold and given away almost all of them. I got this gorgeous yarn from freecycle and decided that it's finally time to make a wearable scarf for myself. The lace pattern comes from Vogue Stitchonary. I love it!

Stripy Gloves
yarn: Knit Picks Felici, Atmosphere
needles: US 3, bamboo DPNs

I started these back in January when a wind storm knocked out power to most of Davis. We were without power and heat for 3 days. While I was freezing my butt off, I decided that it was an absolute travesty that I didn't have a decent pair of (non-snowboard) gloves. So I picked up my needles and some sock yarn and started these. When the power came back on, I totally forgot about them and didn't pick them up again until this fall.

Fall Fingerless Mitts
yarn: Mystical Creation Yarns Wool Silk
needles: US 5, aluminum DPNs

Our chilly evening walks with the puppy inspired me to finally pick up this yarn and knit up a pair of fingerless mitts for the fall. I love this yarn. It has a really rustic look, but it's so soft and wearable.
