Gift Hat

Late last week I started this hat. Mostly I wanted to use up some of the extra yarn I had from my puffin hat(s). After some conversation with my friend who really liked this color, I decided it would be a hat for him. It was good relaxation knitting while I went to the dentist... Continue Reading →

The hexagons are taking over

When I brought back this desk from the other house I planned to use it for my work laptop. That way I could have better separation of my "work office" and my leisure space. As you can see, I've managed to cover the desk in crochet instead. I've finished nearly 60 hexagons, plus a dozen... Continue Reading →

Puffin Hat take two

I finished this hat over the weekend, and finally got all the ends woven in. It's a bit better than the first attempt, but still a little on the small side. I modified the pattern a bit to add some extra stitches. This time I did the four-color rows as stranded colorwork instead of doing... Continue Reading →

Cardigan Pockets finished!

I got these new pockets crocheted onto my cardigan over the weekend. I went back and forth a couple times, but decided to crochet them instead of sewing because I like the way it looks. I'm already enjoying having the pockets while I'm wearing this around the house. Being able to modify something to make... Continue Reading →

Cardigan Pockets started

The weather started getting properly cold this week, so I've started wearing my hooded cardigan around the house. I made it back in 2018, but didn't get to wear it much because the apartment I was living in last year was super warm all winter. Now that I'm wearing it a lot I decided I... Continue Reading →

Puffin Hat!

I've wanted to make this hat for a while. I have a relative who loves puffins, and I wanted to give this as an xmas gift. This is the first time I've done colorwork in a while, and I am not super great at it. I was fine for the sections with two colors, but... Continue Reading →

Dad Socks progress (5)

There's definitely been continued steady progress on these socks. I've gotten distracted by other projects a bit, but these are still almost always what I am knitting on while I talk to my dad on the phone every night. The more these grow, the more I wish I had bought an extra skein of this... Continue Reading →

Hexagon Ends

I made a few new hexagons over the weekend for my blanket. More importantly, I spent a bunch of time last week and this weekend weaving in ends for the hexes I already made. I still have about a dozen that need their ends woven in, but at least the pile of neat, finished hexes... Continue Reading →

And Another Gramma’s Dishcloth

I've still been struggling a bit this week, just missing Mom and trying to settle into the gloomy weather. Usually fall is my absolute favorite time of year, but it's been harder to enjoy this one since we can't really go anywhere. So I've been knitting up these dishcloths with this much more spring/summer colored... Continue Reading →

Gramma’s Dishcloth

Dishcloths are such great mindless knitting. I've had this ball of Lily Sugar n Cream in the Country Stripes colorway in my stash for a while now. I quite like the way the stripes worked up, and how some of the stripes are not fully saturated with dye. It took up almost exactly half of... Continue Reading →

Dad Socks progress (4)

This week was my mom's birthday, so I took some time off of work and spent some extra time with my Dad. These socks have become the project that I work on when I am talking with him on the phone every night. I chickened out and did my normal heel flap and gusset instead... Continue Reading →
