Knitting Rainbows (And Leftovers)

Remember the coat I knit that I showed you two weeks ago? (If you don’t remember, click here). You may have noticed that it is very rainbow bright! For as long as I can remember, I have loved rainbows. I basically hoard yarn in rainbow colors! Today I wanted to share some of my knitting projects I have made with rainbow yarn.

I rarely knit socks anymore, but I made these while in Disneyland in 2009!

One of my early shawls.

This sweater was hard! It was made with two strands of the same yarn, fair isle style. Then it was cut up the middle to turn it into a cardigan!

Hooded cowl. I still wear this pretty often.

Scarf. I was going for a pooling effect making the colors stripe, but they bled over a bit. Still, it’s pretty cool.

Sweater and hat set I knit for Simon when I was pregnant.

My personal favorite – I took a picture of Simon on this blanket every month from his birth through age 1. Here he is 4 months old.

Another shawl.

Just knit this one this past week – it’s a head wrap and I really like it!

Finally, the main point of this post is to share what I made with the leftover yarn from my Rainbow Jacket – an ear warmer for Gabbie! She loves it, as do many of the teachers at school who complimented me on it!

Linking up with Rosie’s craft challenge – crafting with leftovers!

Which of these projects do you like the best? Which would you wear?

Wow, that cardigan looks crazy hard! I can't even imagine being able to figure out how to do that, but it turned out really nice! It's pretty easy to see your love for the rainbow style with all of those projects!

There's something about looking at rainbows that makes it hard not to be cheerful! I'm still trying to finish up a blanket that I started the baby and after that I want to try socks. Eek!

I love all your colors, so pretty and bright. I love the blanket you took Simon's photos on!

What an amazing knitter you are. I can only do a basic stitch so this is just about the bees knees to me. Thank you so much for taking part - I can't wait to see what you might repurpose.

These colors are so amazing! Looks like you've been shopping at Knit Picks. Am I right? *fingers crossed* I would definitely wear that last shawl image with the garter stitch and the scalloped edges.
