What the HK is on Your Needles? Vol. 37

Are you ready for another look at some beautiful recently finished Hazel Knits projects? I've got a great collection for you today.

Our first project today is Katy's (ravname: grrltastic) lovely October Leaves gloves by Abbie Tilden in Piquant Lite in ShannyPants. Katy adapted the original fingerless pattern to make this awesome pair of gloves. 

Trudy (ravname: TrudyG) knit a stunning French CanCan shawl by Mademoiselle C in Lively DK in Terrywinkle. A beautiful mix of garter and lace.

Becky (Ravname: gathersnomoss) is showing support for her local football team with her cute Mini-Stocking by Susan B. Anderson in Artisan Sock in Hometeam Football. I adore how at this small scale the variegation looks more like striping. Sweet!

Lizzie (ravname: LizzieLace) knit a pair of The Sign of the Prancing Pony Socks by Claire Ellen in Artisan Sock in Iris for a friend of hers. Lucky friend! I recently completed a pair of these delightful socks myself which I'll show you next time.

Dorie (ravname: SweetBeej) knit herself this inspiring Petrea sweater by Amy Herzog using Amy's CustomFit program. The result is perfection! Dorie knit hers in Lively DK in Violeta. I'm not quite ready to tackle another sweater right now but Dorie makes it tempting.

Jennie (ravname: Izamight) knit herself an eye-catching pair of Slipstream Mitts by Louise Zass-Bangham in Divine in Fiery Foliage (a club colour). I love the beads! I think I'll add this one to my queue and finally attempt another beaded project.

And finally, Diana (ravname: dlbecker) knit a cozy looking Fall Line Scarf by Anne Hanson in Cadence in Haze as a gift. I hope the recipient loves it as much as I would.

Thanks to everyone for allowing me to feature their projects. I'm always so pleased when I hear back from my requests with an enthusiastic yes. The work is beautiful and I'm glad you are willing to share it.

Next week, I'll show you what's been on my needles lately.


What the HK is on Your Needles? Vol. 36

It's been a while since I've searched the project pages on Ravelry and found a collection of beautiful projects knit by others. So today I'd like to share 8 projects knit in a variety of Hazel Knits bases and colours that I've recently found inspiring. 

Carol (ravname: KnittyGrittyCarol) chose Artisan Sock in Orchid to knit these lovely Lizzy socks by Stephanie van der Linden. I love the contrast of the beautiful stitches against the rough stone background in her photo.

Erica (ravname: ejsufka) knit this adorable Puddle Duck by Melissa Schaschwary in Hazel Knits' new worsted weight, Cadence, in Sagebrush. A beautiful sweater for a beautiful child. So sweet.

Cory Ellen (ravname: coryellen) designed a gorgeous new hat, Pip, in Cadence in Braeburn. Cory Ellen expects to publish this fun pattern in mid-November. I'll be keeping my eye open for it.

Karen (ravname: fireboysgirl) chose Piquant Lite in Beach glass for her exquisite test knit of Shazbat by Heidi Nick. Originally published as a mystery sock this pattern looks like it would have been a fun mystery to reveal.

Ravname: yarn-sitter participated in verybusymonkey's recent mystery shawl knitalong and chose to knit her Clue Shawl in Divine in club colour Sapphire. It looks luxurious.

Andrea (ravname: aksaxton) knit a delightful Eurybia by Melissa J. Goodale in Entice in Queen of the Night. I love all these nature shots! Interesting photography always catches my eye as I'm looking through the project pages.

Laura (ravname: K5tog) chose the intriguing combination of Lichen and Quill in Divine to knit Itineris by Hillary Smith Callis. All I can say is that this unexpected combination works. Great eye for colour, Laura. Quill is currently the featured colour of the month if anyone is looking to replicate this pairing.

And finally,  Lisa (ravname: knitsocks) knit these delightful He-He-Ha Socks by Pata Tocchin in Piquant Lite in Tropical Sunset. I'm not sure how I'd personally feel about knitting beetles on my socks but the result certainly is attractive.

Thanks to everyone for allowing me to include their projects and photos. As always, I wish I had time to knit all of these beauties myself. I hope you find them inspiring too.
