Yarn-Over, Ligature… Same Difference.
lig·a·ture [lig-uh-cher, -choor] noun. — Printing. a character or type combining two or more letters. (Yarn overs aren't all that different)

Bristol Neck Warmer

I knit this up in one night using some yarn from my stash. I used the Bristol Neck Warmer pattern (free) as a guideline, really. I only used the pattern for dimensions and button placement… not a whole lot else. I also only did a garter stitch because anything else wouldn’t have showed up in the pretty yarn colour.

Pattern: Bristol Neck Warmer
Source: www.cabledsheep.com
Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/riizu/bristol-neck-warmer
For: Myself
Yarn: 1.5 skeins of a Patons Bohemian in Green Tea that I bought at Wool Tyme on impulse
Needles: 5mm
Notions: I bought the buttons from MaggiesMess’s Etsy store.
Time line: Finished in one night in February

Tura Maeve Dress in blue

I received the Yarn (from Nordic Mart) on Thursday, and started it pretty much right away. I finished the bodice within hours of receiving the yarn in the mail, and decided to block it before going any further just to make my life a tad bit easier. You can see the pattern here (scroll down for English translation), and the Ravelry link here.

Pattern: Tura Maeve Dress by Paulina Obregón (scroll down for English translation)
Source: All you knit is love
Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/riizu/tura-maeve-dress
For: My niece who is due born in mid-April
Yarn: 2 skeins of Garnstudio Safran in a pretty blue colour
Needles: US 5 / 3.75mm and a crochet hook for finishing
Notions: I'm going to have to figure out something to fasten the back, since I don't want to use buttons for a newborn dress… maybe small strips of ribbon? Or maybe just a crochet chain…
Time line: This needs to be done by March 31st!
