Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

Hats, Scarves and Nests

Well, it's been over two weeks since we've last spoke.  Do I have things to show for it?  YES!  Can I show them all to you?  NO!  I left my cable that connects my digital camera to my computer in California, so it's more complicated for me to upload photos now.  It involves me interrupting Abe for help.  I will show you what I was able to squeek out of the camera so far.

This is the little nest I made for the mobile.  Now I know it isn't that big, BUT it took me some time to figure this thing out.  I wanted it to look like woven sticks, and to be consistent looking despite decreases.  I'm happy with it.  I'm working on the eggs now.  They will fill the nest.  There's going to be something like a piece of coathanger or a thick paperclip inside the nest to give it some structure.
Sister scarf!  I'm super happy with it.  Different size stripes going in different directions.
It will be more impressive once it's blocked.

This is the friends earflap hat.  The hat part is from a design I had done previously for the fibre company, who's Pemaquid Yarn is featured here.  I added the cable flaps and ties in place of the boring old i-cord.  It's nice because the weight of the cables makes the earflaps lay flat, so you don't have to tie the ties, which I prefer.
