Belated WIP Wednesday due to hiatus and parent/teacher conferences. And my mind is just so unquiet, which means of COURSE I need to start eight million new projects.  Top: I am ALMOST finished with Blue’s scarf. So. Close! It’s just a double crochet through the back loop pattern that I’ll stitch into an infinity scarf. Oh man, it’s gonna be so snuggly! Right: I saw this super cute pattern for a fox scarf . The pattern is in Danish, but there is an English translation at the bottom. I was a little confused when I started the pattern, but it starts at the tip of the tail. I think I’ll make this for my cousin Maddie. But I really really want one for myself.  Left: I started the Totoro hat for The Favorite. I’m using a basic earflap hat pattern and will add the Totoro embellishments. I’m adding ties with soot sprites at the end. There is an easy to follow pattern for soot sprites at @dentonsinventions ravelry page. However, the Fun Fur yarn is such a pain in the ass to work with on its own, so I’m gonna double it with some plain worsted to make it easier to use. If it’s not as fuzzy as I’d like, I’ll probably just make some pompoms.

Ruska-sukat (aka Autumn Foliage Socks). This is a pair of seed stitch rib socks I made for my husband. It’s my own design, with a toe-up construction, a gusset and a reinforced heel. The seed stitch rib consists of two rows (R1: knit all sts, R2: *K3, p1*). I wanted a simple stitch pattern to showcase the beautiful yarn. The socks are named after the colorway of the yarn (‘ruska’, which is Finnish for ‘autumn foliage colors’).
The yarn is Väinämöinen by Knitlob’s Lair (or Louhittaren Luola in Finnish), a hand-dyed sock yarn. It feels sturdy and durable, and the colors are just delicious. Knitlob’s Lair yarns are available in some Finnish yarn stores, but she also has an Etsy store. The yarns are named after Finnish mythology, which I find pretty damn cool.
Project details:
Pattern: own design
Yarn: Väinämöinen by Knitlob’s Lair (fingering, 75%, wool 25% polyamide), colorway ‘Ruska’ - I used 85 grams for the pair of socks
Needles: 2 mm (US 0)
Size: 45 (EU)

A rainbow-colored Fair Isle knitted cowl by a Flagstaff fiber artist

Flagstaff fiber artist Louise Hall is a master Fair Isle knitter. She brought a handknitted wool cowl she recently finished to the October Flagstaff fiber arts gathering at my house and modeled it for us. She used two self striping yarns to knit the cowl, a rainbow-striped yarn and a muted sage green yarn, both from Knit Picks.

Louise also won the Best of Show ribbon at this year’s Coconino County Fair for a Fair Isle shawl. She brought the shawl, tam and fingerless mitts to the gathering. Janice tried on the shawl and decided she loved it (who wouldn’t).

The two designs are Louise’s. She has plans to sell her knitting patterns through her Etsy store.

Eliza Bennett - A woman’s work is never done, 2011Using my own hand as a base material, I considered it a canvas upon which I stitched into the top layer of skin using thread to create the appearance of an incredibly work worn hand. By using the technique of embroidery, traditionally employed to represent femininity and applying it to the expression of it’s opposite, I hope to challenge the pre-conceived notion that ‘women’s work’ is light and easy. Aiming to represent the effects of hard work arising from employment in low paid ancillary jobs such as cleaning, caring, and catering, all traditionally considered to be ‘women’s work’.
