Just hang-er-ing around!

My Ravelry Project Page]
Can be wrapped 3 times around my neck. Makes it super warm
Yarn(s) and needles:
C1: Misti Alpaca in 0790 – 360 meters (395 yards), 45 grams
C2: Malabrigo Lace in Charrua 259 – 348 meters (380 yards), 40 grams
Either 3.5 mm or 4 mm circular (can’t remember which) – magic loop

Can also be used as a headband/cowl combo
Notes & mods:
Changed DK-weight to laceweight.
Cast on 88 sts as per pattern, to make a narrower cowl.
Made entirely from stash yarn (go me!).
Thanks to the alpaca, this is a really warm cowl.
Swartbos/Rooibos is finally finished!
Pattern: Rooibos by Amy M. Swenson
Wendy Mood Chunky. 50/50 pure merino wool/acrylic. 140 m per 100g ball, 5 balls used
7 mm and 6 mm circular needles
Love the ribbing on the back to draw in the waist.
Size: L (finished chest measurement 44″ – see notes)
Dates: 12th May 2011 – 11th Feb 2015
My camera did not like photographing black on a slightly dull day.
Hood retained from a project (
Weekend Sweater) that I wisely abandoned and frogged before I finished it. Added buttons and buttonholes.
From the photos on knitty this is intended to be an open-fronted waistcoat but I tend not to use/wear things I can’t fasten (the exception being my
Vitamin C cardigan). As an open-front it probably would fit a 44″ bust. I (
heavens) crocheted three loops to the waistcoat so I can button the hood on. The buttons on the hood match those on the waistcoat.
Crocheted loop for attaching the hood.
This is another entry into the long-overdue FO Friday series. I’m playing catch up, basically!
Liquorice & Nougat Socks aka Strawberries & Cream mark 2
Pattern: Strawberries & Cream Socks by moi!
Yarn: MC Regia Silk (Black) and CC Art of Xen Capability (English Rose). Fingering/sock weight yarn. Approx 320 m of MC, 80 m of CC.
Heel over 60% of foot stitches to give a deeper, more comfortable fit.
Started these June 2013 and finished them some time in early 2014 (possibly Feb or March).
These are super comfortable to wear and they are, if I do say so myself, rather stylish!
