Tiny Little Knit


During the holidays I was yearning to knit something I could finish quickly, so I used the sock yarn in my stash to knit this seed stitch bracelet. The pattern is from my new favorite book, More Last Minute Knitted Gifts. This project is supposed to be a two hour project, and I can verify that it really does take two hours-- if you read the pattern correctly. (Unfortunately, I didn't, so it took more like three hours.)

It turned out pretty cute, but after wearing it for about ten minutes my wrist started itching like crazy and I found myself tugging at it. Next time I won't use wool.

The New Techniques 2011 Knit-along hit 200 members last night. I'm very excited about the techniques I'm planning to learn this year and I'm having a blast moderating the Ravelry group. Please feel free to join us.

Kate Creates is having a giveaway! Leave a comment on her blog by January 5th to win a gorgeous skein of yarn.

Cute creation but wool does that to me too:) The older I get, the more I itch with things like that! Stitching in clothes is another one, if it itches... it comes off! Have a blessed 2011 my friend! I know it is going to be a great year! HUGS!

The bracelet is adorable - and seed stitch! We love seed stitch, don't we?

I'd join your knitalong, but it seems I only pick up the sticks around Christmas time. I'm not going to fight it - I have to make time for sewing and other stuff too. But I'll be following along, living vicariously through those of you who actually have knitting talent!

It is really cute - I love the colors. I'm a bit fiddly about things on my wrist anyway, so it may bother me - wool or not. I love how your photographed it!
