Every once in a while, life is abundant in little bits of sunshine. This was one of those weeks. And, among the bits of sunshine a sweater was born!
Sigla is a ray of sunshine all by itself because knitting a Mary Jane Mucklestone sweater is really a joy! Thirteen days start to finish and while I did not beat my Stopover time of 35 hours; at the conclusion I have a sweater that I am in love with! I made some modifications to the pattern which you can read about here. Sigla is on her way to becoming a well-worn old friend! (And, thank you Steve for taking pictures just before the downpour began!)
If you have not yet knit one of Mary Jane’s patterns, I strongly urge you to do so! And, for speed of knitting – a lopapeysa is just the thing to ignite your sweater fire!
Now on to the Friday Links, which today are all about gift knitting:
- Grose Cowl (which could easily be a Grellow Cowl if pink is not your thing!)
- Cats-Don’t-Understand-Hygge (but these socks do!!)
- Nebula – a collection of things to gift!
- Tied Knots (FREE!!)
- Candlewick Hat
- Lavalie’s Garden
- Socks Yeah!
- From MDK’s Stripes – Squad Mitts and Breton Cowl both would make lovely gifts!
- Coco Cowl
- Shipwreck Cove cowl
- Gift Knits 2016 from Ambah O’Brien
Now to round out the links – there is a very interesting MKAL that will be starting on November 25 to coincide with the Netflix release of the Gilmore Girls Encore Mini-season. There is no way I will get to this before Christmas, but it might be a good Christmas break knit! Who’s interested in joining me?
That is all I have for today, but the good news is that I will see you here tomorrow! NaBloPoMo marches on! My wish for you today is that your knitting is fast and easy and that your beverage of choice is chilled perfectly! Happy FriYAY everyone!
