View Full Version : Sharing some WIP's (Tree of Life, Frida, & Winter Mountains Scarf)

I don't think I have ever shared any of my projects here (except for my signature blurb!)

I spent the morning horrifying my neighbors as usual by taking pictures of knitting out in the yard.

Here is the Tree of Life afghan I am working on. It's a lot of fun!


Here is the Frida poncho- I love leaves & trees:

Here is the Winter Mountains scarf- it looks like a dogs breakfast because it's in progress and not blocked. This is handspun alpaca (from Louie) & it's a little thick & thin in spots.

Hopefully this picture posting bit works... I think I figured it out with Jan's sticky note. Please let me know if they're too big or I didn't do it right.

That's a great size to post! They're easy to see and won't affect users with dial-up or small monitors. :thumbsup:

Those are beautiful! That afghan looks complicated!

They look great! I've been attracted to the Tree of Life as well as the Leaves but haven't tried them yet. Well done!

Very nice and I, too, love the Tree of Life! You've done a great job on them so far...

Everything looks beautiful! I've done parts of the Tree of Life and it was a really fun pattern and it turns out so beautiful!

They are all beautiful! I'd love to have the pattern for the scarf -- where did you find it?

Amazing stuff! I think the trees are to die for... but love the leaves as well...:thumbsup:
Can't wait to see the tree afghan finished.

I said it before, I'll say it again! WOW, you've been busy!
Your work is wonderful! I have the pattern for FRIDA, and have always loved it. You made it especially wonderful with the shade of green you selected! Kudos to you!

It is the "Winter Mountains Scarf" from the book Knit Ponchos, Wraps & Scarves. (http://www.amazon.com/Knit-Ponchos-Wraps-Scarves-Davis/dp/0873499654/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1241017578&sr=8-1) The written directions are incorrect, but if you follow the chart you're fine.

I love the Frida Poncho, can you post the pattern? I'll have to do a project with that design. I like it a lot!
