10 Stitch Twist Blanket - Finished!

Posted on February 16, 2010 at 10:00am 21 Comments



This project felt like it took forever, and I'm so glad it's finally done. I also love the finished result, so it was worth all that effort. Here's my 10 Stitch Twist blanket in all its 72" diameter glory.



I ended up using 36 balls of Palette, double stranding 2 colors together throughout. I switched out one color at a time (every 3/4 of a round or so) so that the color transitions are pretty… Continue

Finished Vest

I have been terrible at taking pictures and blogging about finished projects. I really, really have been knitting as much as ever, and here is a little proof. This is my Nederland Vest (from the fall 2008 issue of KnitScene) in Gloss DK. I love how this yarn drapes and fits so… Continue

    I'm the vice president of Knit Picks. Mostly, I do number crunching, merchandising planning and product development. I love that my job mixes the creative with the analytical.

    I've been knitting for about 7 years, and I try to learn something new with each project - except for the little projects that keep popping up just for fun, and socks, always socks. I also love to sew, read, hike, and daydream about home improvement projects (I see a big garden in my future).

    I would love to see interchangeable crochet hooks in zephyr and harmony. I know that they have them in Europe, why not here. I made a knitting hook out of a skewer so that I would have a hook on one end to pick up stitches and a needle end to knit them off. Think how much easier it would be to use the cables! Also, with the varying cable lengths, the afghan stitch would be much easier on the larger blankets. I know I would buy them.

    Hi Tina,
    How about a line of crochet hooks using zephyr acrylic? The flexibility is great and would be a nice addition for those of us who are (ah-hem) bi-craftual.

    Not a problem. I use the cedar oil when I oil my cedar chest and also keep blocks in the closet that I oil regularly. If nothing else, I enjoy the smell.

    Tina,

    A comment actually related to the Podcast on organizing (the podcast itself won't accept comments for some reason).

    Anyway, you can buy cedar oil in small bottles to refresh the cedar balls/blocks rather than having to sand them.

    Hi Tina,

    I was wondering if you had any suggestions for moth proofing? My Mom just told me that some hand knitted gifts I had given her and my Dad (along with a bunch of other wool items, like slacks and sport coats) have served as a moth buffet. I told her I would come to a wool experts and ask for help. Thanks.
