Now that the contest are over here are the pictures of my knitting that I haven't been able to show. I found out tonight I didn't get in the finals for the Cherry Tree Hill contest. Here is the shawl I knit for that contest. The contest was to design a garment using this colour Sugar Maple. I called this the Sugar Maple Sunshine shawl. At the top was round section of ribbon, that was the sun and the sunrays are streaming down the shawl. I will be anxious to see the winning garment on Friday. Stay tuned. I will post the winner.
Here is Meika looking sweet as ever wearing the Pinwheel sweater. When this sweater is worn one way it fits a baby. It has a very large shawl collar. The sleeves are rolled up for the baby size.
As the baby grows the sleeves can roll down and the sweater turned over to fit a larger child. the little girl wearing it in this picture is nearly 4.
And this is Megan wearing her sweater. It can also be worn upside down as a more casual sweater with a large collar. I knit the baby sweater first. It started out to become an afghan and at a certain point in the afghan it became a sweater. Then Megan wanted one too so I got her to pick the colours for the sweater and then I knit it. This sweater is actually really easy to knit. The edge is quite simple but takes a long time to do. It is just a really elaborate bind off. I am glad the contests are over and I am really glad I won the elann contest. now I can buy more yarn, just what I need.
Speaking of yarn I have 2 sale yarns for the month of June. I will blog about them tomorrow.
