FREE HANDKNITS! HANDKNIT GIVEAWAY

I like to knit. A lot. I think I like knitting things even more than I like wearing the knitted things. I'm kind of a process knitter, I suppose.

So, I have a lot of knit things that are sitting around, and I think they're too beautiful to just sit around anymore. So I'm giving them away.

All I ask in return is that you care for them properly (and not accidentally felt them in the washing machine LIKE MY MOTHER) and if I have to mail it to you, please cover postage.

First come, first served. Please email me directly (thuvngo at gmail) - don't comment this post. I have more pictures of most of these items, if you need to see them. I will note which ones have already been taken.

All garments are women's size L/XL (14-16) unless otherwise noted. My bust measurement (around the fullest part) is around 46 inches, if that helps to give you a reference. And I generally make things a little loose.

*UPDATE* All that remains below is the Calorimetry headband. Unless anyone changes her mind :)

Short n Sweet, an open-front, crocheted short-sleeved bolero. 100% cotton - I'm pretty sure I have washed this in a machine.



TAKEN!









Chelsea - lacy open-front vest. Bamboo/wool - handwash/dry flat


TAKEN!














Forest & Frill - cabled and lacy shrug. Very thick and warm. 100% alpaca (so soft!) - handwash/dry flat





TAKEN!











Balthasar Vest - Deep V neck vest. Machine washable wool.



TAKEN!














Nob Hill - Bolero jacket. Slight discoloration on the inside underarms (because of a black shirt I was wearing) and on the front collar due to a different pin I was using. 100% acrylic, machine washable



TAKEN!











Liesl - Cropped cardi. Silk and wool - handwash/dry flat






TAKEN!











Cowl neck sweater - sleeveless lace. The size I chose to make was too big and long for me - this will probably more likely fit a size 16-18 woman. 100% wool - handwash/dry flat


TAKEN!













Urchin Beret - machine washable wool.


TAKEN!















Ski Skulls - Ended up being just a tad too small for my head. I have a huge head. That's okay, I'll make another one. I immensely enjoyed making this. Wool - handwash/dry flat


TAKEN!













Lettuce armwarmers - lace armwarmers. Wool, handwash/dry flat




TAKEN!













Dashing - cabled armwarmers. Wool, handwash/dry flat


TAKEN!
