Seems I haven’t only been slacking off in the blog department, but also in updating my Ravelry projects page. I’m going to try and fill in the year’s worth of work before the end of 2010.
This is the Canadian Flag intarsia quilt block that won me gold at the Knitting Guild’s little Olympic challenge…way back when.
Back in March I’d also finished a gift for a friend’s new baby. My friend Michelle had a daughter after having a son (the same age as Jakob) and I knit a little dress for her.
(pretend I’d rotated the photo)
Pattern: Anouk (Ravelry link)
Yarn: Cascade 220 (Cream) and unknown burgundy yarn from guild swap
Needles: 4 mm
Notions: buttons…was it 1 or 2? I don’t remember and didn’t take a clear photo. Oops!
Dates: February 25 – March 20 2010
Modifications: like many others I saw on Ravelry, I modified the tunic to become a dress. I also omitted the pockets, and added an appliquéd flower.
The flower used the same needles and yarn, and is from this pattern for Knitted Linen Flowers (Ravelry link)

No pictures of you winning your gold medal?

Anouk is super cute. (And another reason I would have loved to have had a girl!)

Thanks. I think my friend liked it!
