The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Knit

Filed under: Hobbies,It's Me, Lass — by InterstellarLass @ 9:56 am

Or, perhaps Invasion of the Skeins. I was plopped on the couch the majority of the weekend. I finished, ripped out, and then re-did this hat for Nick. The green one. The first one was too big. I measured his giant melon, made the biggest size according to measurements, and somehow it was still too big. Now I’m on #2 for Zed. His will be navy blue. I do have to go to the knit shop at lunch to figure out the particular seaming stitch the pattern calls for, but that’s not too much work.

After that’s done, I’ve also got to get needles to start these. For my mom I think. Nick will also get these. Then I have three of these bags to assemble. The pieces are all knitted and begging to be stitched up. One in the green shown, one in organge, and one in a wine-red color. And, when I tuck in the ends, this scarf will be finished. If you knit, I highly recommend making this lovely scarf. It didn’t take me two hours to knit it up, and it’s so soft and fluffy. The pattern is free! Oh, and yes, all this is for Christmas. I have two weeks from today to finish. At least my fingers are in shape, even if the rest of me isn’t.


  1. Always jealous of you talented kind.

  5. I have given up creating for this christmas. But, I have a giant list of projects I AM GOING to complete for next year.

    You should post all your knitting links as a T13. I would love to know where you shop for knitting stuff.

  6. I’m always so impressed with people who can knit, crochet, etc. I don’t have the hand-eye co-ordination for that. Or the patience either, truth be told 😛

  7. […] So far, we’re looking good gift-wise. Nick & Zed’s hats are done, and except for the bind-off and thumb-work, I’m d-o-n-e with my mom’s gloves. Just the three bags remain to be put together, and with the fabulous new finishing stitch – mattress stitch – that I’ve learned, the bags and hats are near-perfect. Only I, with my critical eye, can see my mistakes. […]
