Norwegian Gloves (Nancy Bush)

Norwegian Gloves (Nancy Bush)

pattern: by Nancy Bush from Piecework magazine Jan/Feb '96

yarn: Dale Heilo

excuse: started impulsively over the summer ('04) - changed gauge to fit my small hands. Have to rip first finger back to start because it was too short. Too lazy to do so.


Wishbone socks

Wishbone socks

Pattern: Wishbone_Socks

yarn: Talu from The Wooly West

Reason unfinished: No excuse. The first one was even measured to the recipient's foot.


Eriskay gansey

Eriskay gansey

pattern: Eriskay gansey from The Traditional Sweater Book by Madeline Weston (OOP)

yarn: Frangipani_Guernsey

Danish Nattrøje

Danish Nattrøje

Pattern: Danish Nattrojer by Beth Brown-Reinsel from IK Winter 2004

Yarn: Blackberry Ridge fingering weight 100% wool

Needles: size 2.25mm circs

FROGGED - this was a bad choice of yarn for this pattern, although I was getting gauge, the yarn was too sticky to be easy to work with for this pattern/gauge. Will try again, with another yarn ... someday.
