Maja’s outfit — Knitting, fo

Filed under: Knitting FOs — freeformkatia @ 8:14 am

I finished this outfit last weekend!

Pattern source: Knitpicks (but I can’t find the pattern on their website anymore)

Yarn: Knitpicks’ Memories in Redwood Forest

The only change I made was instead of doing a crotcheted edging on the jacket I did an i-cord. The reason: Katia doesn’t own a crotchet hook and if I did I wouldn’t know how to use it.

I think the i-cord turned out really well and gives the jacket a nice clean finished edging. I had never done an i-cord before, although I’ve heard of the technique… so who else did I turn to for help? Elizabeth Zimmerman! I’ve mentioned before that she rocks my knitting world.

I also finished Elyn’s scarf this past week(end?). No pics yet though… need to still block it out.

So, for today’s entertainment I am going to start a new pair of socks with the Koigu I bought in Arizona.

  3. Katia, it’s just beautiful. How on earth do you manage knitting -non-stop), profession, household, child-care, husband and singing in the choir? We are looking forward to the belly photo! Love
