What the HK is on Viki's Needles?
Like usual I've had a lot of Hazel Knits projects pass over my needles over the last few months. Let's have a look at what I've been up to.
My first project is the 3 Colour Cashmere Cowl by Jojo Locatelli. This is probably one of the most popular patterns on Ravelry this year and with good reason. It's a fun and interesting knit. And in the round, it works up pretty fast. I couldn't wait to get to that pop of pink. For mine, I opted to forego the cashmere and used Artisan sock in Reflection, Silhouette and Totally Pink. I love, love, love this cowl. It is super long, so when you put it on it just bunches up perfectly in a way I can never perfect with a scarf or infinity cowl. Hmm...I just bought a new red coat, maybe I need to make another one of these with a pop of Ruby Love!
My next project is Entrechat by Lisa Chemery. It's a sweet baby-sized bolero style cardigan. I knit mine in Tempo in Ruby Love. Tempo is a worsted base that isn't stocked on the website yet (it's been limited release so far). This knit was a bit of a test run. Great stitch definition and drape!
Last time I showed you my first Falls of Rauros sock by Claire Ellen. I finally finished the second one!! These took me quite a while to do. I find twisted ribbing hard on my hands and slow going. But worth it! I think this will make an awesome present for my mother in law. These are in Artisan sock in By the Seashore.
And finally, I guess I'm getting a little excited about the upcoming holiday season. I have made a lot of new ornaments this year, most of which I've made extra special by using my favourite leftover Hazel Knits colours.
I wouldn't be surprised if I whipped up a few more of these ornaments. I love a quick one day project. Makes me feel accomplished!
