Vampire Squid Blanket Pattern

I’m an Oceanographer, and although I don’t study squid, I do love them very much. The vampire squid (Vampyroteuthis infernalis) is one of my favorite sea creatures. Maybe it says something about me, but when I saw people making mermaid tail blankets, my first thought was "I want that, but as a weird deep sea... Continue Reading →

Heel Toe Do Si Do Socks progress (3)

Whatever block I had that was keeping me from these socks is now well and truly gone. I've been spending almost all of my free time working on these and have almost doubled my progress in a few days. I think I just needed to dedicate enough time to them so I could memorize the... Continue Reading →

Sweater Swatch

Once my DK socks were done, I spent the rest of my weekend knitting time working on this swatch. This yarn is from my Dragon Hoard Yarn Halloween advent set, and I want to use most of the mini skeins to make a sweater. I spent a lot of time doing math to try to... Continue Reading →

Another Half Washcloth

Bricks Hat started

I decided to start on another hat now that my Halloween socks are done. To be fair I did also knit a few rows on my Heel Toe Do Si Do socks as well, but I really wanted a quick break from sock knitting. Given how fast this hat is going it will probably be... Continue Reading →

Halloween Socks finished!

They're done! For some reason it felt like it took longer than usual to weave in all the ends, but still a piece of cake. I'm glad I managed to get through these while it is still somewhat close to the spooky season. I'm also glad I ended up having exactly enough of the self-striping... Continue Reading →
