What's on Viki's needles?

Posted by

Like usual I've had a lot of Hazel Knits projects pass over my needles over the last few months. Let's have a look at what I've been up to.

My first project is the 3 Colour Cashmere Cowl by Jojo Locatelli. This is probably one of the most popular patterns on Ravelry this year and with good reason. It's a fun and interesting knit. And in the round, it works up pretty fast. I couldn't wait to get to that pop of pink. For mine, I opted to forego the cashmere and used Artisan sock in Reflection, Silhouette and Totally Pink. I love, love, love this cowl. It is super long, so when you put it on it just bunches up perfectly in a way I can never perfect with a scarf or infinity cowl. Hmm...I just bought a new red coat, maybe I need to make another one of these with a pop of Ruby Love!

My next project is Entrechat by Lisa Chemery. It's a sweet baby-sized bolero style cardigan. I knit mine in Tempo in Ruby Love. Tempo is a worsted base that isn't stocked on the website yet (it's been limited release so far). This knit was a bit of a test run. Great stitch definition and drape!

Next up is one of my own patterns, Gracewood Hat and Mittens, which I released in September. I'll just post a picture of one of the sets I've knit (in Primrose and Electrolyte in Artisan sock) but trust me when I say I could have shown you several more colour combinations - my favourite being Primrose and Silhouette, I think. I've had a lot of these pass over my needles this year.

Last time I showed you my first Falls of Rauros sock by Claire Ellen. I finally finished the second one!! These took me quite a while to do. I find twisted ribbing hard on my hands and slow going. But worth it! I think this will make an awesome present for my mother in law. These are in Artisan sock in By the Seashore.

And finally, I guess I'm getting a little excited about the upcoming holiday season. I have made a lot of new ornaments this year, most of which I've made extra special by using my favourite leftover Hazel Knits colours.

Clockwise from upper left: Scandinavian Santa by Calle del Limon shown in Artisan sock in Red Carpet, Nekkid and Blacklight (with a little non-HK pink for the face); Yarn Basket Ornament by Scarlet Taylor in Cadence in Nekkid and Artisan sock in Witching Hour, Stick o'Butter, Euphorbia and Vamp; Christmas Balls Knit Ornament Pattern Set by Amy Gaines knit in Cadence in Nekkid, Heartthrob, Smolder and Smudge (with a white non-HK acrylic); Mochimochi Snowmen by Anna Hrachovec in Artisan sock in Nekkid, Blacklight, Vamp, Euphorbia, Witching Hour and Violeta.

I wouldn't be surprised if I whipped up a few more of these ornaments. I love a quick one day project. Makes me feel accomplished!
