As of Late

August 3, 2012

I started the Sidewalk Shawl last week during the opening ceremonies. It took a while for me to get used to the written instructions (charts are my preference) but I got the hang of it after a repeat. So far I’m “meh” about the project. I was going to power through it but I think I have to set it aside and work on something else.

Unofficial Ravellenic Project

I finished my pullover (based off this one by Vince) a few weeks ago and I’m really happy with how it turned out. Definitely worth my time and the best part? The yarn was free.

Today I went to The Griddle Cafe with Katie and it was amazing. I ordered the Black Magic Pancakes and was shocked when the waiter brought them out. Seriously, 12″ in diameter. And there were three. She was a lot more responsible and ordered a waffle.

Now I’m off to re-knit these mittens. Lily and Hugo will be nearby, I’m sure. Happy Friday!

    Izabelle, I love your pullover, did you just make it up as you went along? Very cool. warm weather knits are my new obsession. Oh and dog legs are the best!

      Thanks Michelle! I saw the pullover in person so I had a general idea. I also tweaked a few things to work with my yarn and needles.

    I did that shawl for my mom and I bloody well hated it. I’m meh on all shawls though. That pullover though is a thing of beauty.

    Ohh that pullover turned out great! I love the sleeve length you ended up going with, it looks really good! (I would also love knitting notes if you have them so I can make one too!)

    your sweater looks great! Could you post your pattern/guidelines on how you made it? I am always inspired by all of Vince’s knitwear.

    I saw a pullover just like yours at Armani Exchange for $40 so you really got it good!
