Not My Knitting

Denise's Semi Circular Shawl

My friend Denise asked me to get some pictures of her recently finished projects. I was happy to oblige, mostly because it meant Maggie and I could get out of the house for the day and do something different. And ogling Denise’s wonderful knitting is pretty fun, too. Pictured above is her Storm Cloud Shawlette by Hanna Breetz.

I also love the shot of her Ulla’s Scarf by Nancy Bush. It’s very soft and delicate. The scarf, not the picture.

It was really, really nice to take pictures of knitting, considering how infrequently I’ve done that of late! We are still working on the hallway and I hope to be closer to Finished tomorrow after a trip back to Ikea. Here’s what it looked like as of this morning (with obligatory “before” picture):

so close!

I will be so happy to get the shelves up and get things organized in there. SO HAPPY. Because right now? All the things that usually live in the hallway are mostly piled all over my bedroom and it is making me crazy! So crazy that I can barely knit. But! After many false starts, I finally nailed down the design for my swap mitten.

Mitten!

And I’m working on my potholders!

Alas, not much to show for either of those projects, but getting started is half the battle, right?   Here’s some more pictures of Denise’s knitting. Because focusing on someone else’s FOs sounds like a good plan to me.

  1. Wonderful pictures, all! We’re having the basement finished at the moment, so stuff piled up out of place? I can totally relate.

    Love all the knitting, esp the cabled mittens in the next-to-last picture. What’s the pattern, pray tell?

  2. Your hallway is FABULOUS! Did you use beadboard on the walls? I think we’re going to use that on our screened-in porch (long story–roofers messed it up with the new roof.) It looks wonderful! I hope you were able to get up some shelving and put things where they belong. I’m sure it’s going to be wonderful!
