Knitterly Sketch Journal Pages

WildHareJournalPage

I’m gonna try to catch you up on my yarny travels of late by way of my sketch journal devoted solely to the items I’ve finished knitting or crocheting.

FINISHED is the key word here. A fiber project I’m working on does not get to be drawn into the journal until it is ALL DONE! Seams made, ends woven in, blocked if needed.

This final step is like the icing on the cupcake for me. I love to draw. I love to knit and crochet. So to draw what I’ve knitted or crocheted is an extra boon!

Anna'sBootiesΒ Here’s a pic of the sweet little booties I crocheted for a friend who is expecting her first child.

And this is the page for Patsy’s Perfect Tunic, which I hope you are ALL knitting one of these for yourself (FREE Pattern!) before the cold weather leaves!!!

Of course, the Everlasting Gobstopper Blanket…it continues to heal and warm and make cosy all who wrap up in it.

And the Wild Hare Tunic I knitted last week when the first snow “storm” hit our area. I now have another project begun from this week’s snow storm (actually gave us 7″ of snow instead of 1″). I’ll share it with you another day! πŸ™‚

I’ve since finished Rhubarb Blanket and a pair of socks, but they haven’t yet been journaled. Can’t wait to do that!

    • Thank you Lynn! There are times when I bemoan how little I actually accomplish. Keeping this sketch journal of my completed projects shows me that I actually do finish things! It’s quite encouraging. Hope you are happily making, whether it is slowly or fast.

  1. Love that new tunic. It’s an eye-stopper for sure! I wear a bathrobe in the early morning but that’s it – not even a sweater the rest of the day so this kind of knitting and even socks have sort of dropped off my radar. I am knitting a dishcloth for my daughter right now. Dishcloths don’t care whether the weather is warm or cool; we just need them!

    I love seeing the journal pages for the completed projects. It’s a great way to capture the feelings of the new project and how it turned out. As in the bootees, I learned not to make them since I’ve never been able to get the gauge right. Too big bootees don’t work so well and now there are no little ones for me to knit for. I love the hearts on the bottoms! That is an ingenious touch!
