Buried knit treasure!
So a pretty magical thing happened the other day.
I was admiring a certain box that has been left unopened for months, nestled atop a tall shelf. Opening up this box was like opening a time capsule! A variety of things I had knitted over the years was inside. I tried on every item again, basking in the joy of having put my time to this use.
A well placed book fair brought me to a Knitting Guide at the age of 15, and now all these years later I still feel that familiar tingle of casting on a new project!
Now the question is, "What the heck do I do with all these lost treasures?"
This one was knit just over a year ago.
It's one of the few headbands I've made.
Two days of no sleep and a King Of The Hill marathon brought this ear flap hat into existence.
I knitted this blue hat with green buttons as a release of knitting tension.
It turned out way too short for my head, and I ended up not wearing it ever.
Just your average headband. Connected by button.
I have always like the long tassels on the side and back of this hat. I've never worn it much, though.
|One of the few berets I've ever knit. (find the pattern here)|
Sorry that the detail isn't visible in the photo. The hat has a really neat cabled pattern on it, though.
|This is a hat that I feel like I derped up the design and so it didn't turn out so great.|
It's currently weeping inside the box due to lack of love.
|I had this variegated yarn that reminded me of the fall, so I thought it would make a great crocheted scarf. I did the entire thing horizontally to emphasize the color differences with the skein of yarn.|
|Ah, yes! Bella's Mittens! (find the pattern here)|
These are super cozy and I was so happy with them when it was finished.
|I spent so many hours crocheting this. When I finally finished it, I didn't want to look at it anymore.|
I forgot where I saw the pattern for this bag, but it uses the crocodile stitch pattern, which took
a while for me to get the hang of!
|I knitted this one back in high school. I make up the pattern and used leftover yarn from other projects, as well as an old sheet for the interior lining.|
