Androgeny Scarf

Here’s my newest design, it’s a menswear inspired scarf called Androgeny.  I chose the name since the scarf looks equally fabulous on my husband as it does on me!  I knit this in Bernat Berella…I know it’s not fancy yarn, but I really like the colours and I find this yarn really easy to work with.  I came up with the design because I have seen a ton of gorgeous lace, cabled, etc designs….and I thought maybe there should be a super cool stockinette scarf design too!  Basically one say I put on a wide scarf and tied it like a tie….and thought “This could work!”…and here it is!

Depending on the colours you choose it can be as feminine, unisex, or masculine as you want.  There are so many ways to wear this scarf too!  I’m so excited because I have the pattern available to purchase on my Etsy store, and soon to be on Ravelry…so hopefully soon I’ll be able to see how other’s have styled it to make it their own!

Some adorable baby stuff, and a new sweater

My sister-in-law’s sister (is she my sister-in-law once removed?) just had a little baby girl, so I made a stuffed turtle from the Sheldon pattern, and I just made a little bunny hat for the baby at Christmas.  I improvised the hat pattern since hats like this are so simple to do, and then made some impromptu bunny ears for the top.  I love how it turned out, so freaking cute!  I’m clearly going to make tons of these when I have a baby….boy or girl hahah!

Enjoy!

 

I’m also currently working on a design inspired by the gathered cardigan in Knit.1’s summer 08 issue…I couldn’t find a copy of the magazine so I’m trying to copy the design myself.  It’s turning out really well, and I changed it a bit to have a high collar to be more dramatic.  Here’s the progress so far:
