Knitting Around

A few of you have asked what my daughter is knitting.  So I snapped some photos to show everyone.  The cowl she just finished this weekend she started last October.  It was hibernating for quite some time in her dorm room then her room. I think it was half way done.  This is the pattern and she used some of my left over Malabrigo Worsted doubled up.  

She just started the hat (above) three days ago.  The yarn is Galway and here is the pattern.  This is her first time using circulars and also doing K2tog and SSK.  So far, so good.  Once she gets to the crown of the hat she will have to use double pointed needles.  She is planning on taking some (I hope a lot) of my unwanted yarn stash and knit stuff.

I have about three inches done on the body of the featherweight cardigan.  I am just chugging along on my sweater.  I am very pleased with being on size four needles (I think the pattern calls for six!).  It has a nice crisp look. I still have no idea what the buttonband design will be.  Not that I am anywhere close to doing it. 


  1. It looks like your daughter takes after her mom in the knitting department since her knitting is just as lovely. xx

  2. Fantastic! Thank you for sharing what your daughter has been working on :) Both the cowl and the hat in progress are great!

    I think that cowl would be perfect for a friend of mine. I'm adding it to my project list!

  3. My oldest daughter knits and I'm still trying to encourage the other 2. My youngest is very good at it and I think that she will eventually become obsessed. Daughter number 2 can make something but doesn't like it. She makes many mistakes and doesn't care... to each his own I guess!

    Blessings, Debbie

  4. Both beautiful! I'd love to knit a featherweight but all those teeny tiny stitches bring out my lazy! I always end up turning to worsted-weight!

  5. What a gorgeous cardigan that is. I'll be back again to check your progress.

  6. gosh lots of gorgous knitting. the feather weight cardigan is looking gorgeous, I love the grey

  7. I love that cowl - and the purple is so beautiful! I just added the pattern to my faves.
    You sure are making quick work of that gorgeous sweater!

  8. Love the yarn for your cardigan ... for some reason I find myself really drawn to grey/silver yarn lately. :) And I love your daughter's cowl!

    And yes--I visited not one, not two, but THREE yarn shops on the honeymoon. I have a pretty tolerant husband. ;)
