Fluff Nugget progress

I spent some time knitting this last night while I was on the phone with my dad. The twisted rib knit flat is very slow going but it looks good. Working on this project helped distract me from how much my arm hurt after my 2nd covid shot yesterday. Still, I'd happily go through the... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget started!

I intended to start this Fluff Nugget Cardigan on Saturday but I got a little distracted. I cast on on Sunday and have added just a few rows. Part of the reason for the slow start was doing the tubular cast on for several hundred stitches. It looks great but it took an entire evening... 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 →

Velvet Cardigan finished!

I can't believe I finished an entire cardigan in under a week! This pattern was incredibly easy to follow and put together. It did give me an excuse to try one technique I've been meaning to get around to for a while: foundation crochet. I didn't use it for the start of the back body... Continue Reading →

Velvet Cardigan progress (2)

It might not be entirely clear from the photo, but the body of this cardigan is already almost done! I spent a bunch of time working on it while watching the spouse play Horizon: Zero Dawn last night. That was a great use of my time. I love the story of that game and seeing... Continue Reading →

Velvet Cardigan progress

It may not be entirely clear from the photo, but I've finished the whole back and have started on one front panel. This cardigan has a much simpler construction than the last one I crocheted. I'm grateful for that since it is making this super speedy. I really like cardigans as an easy extra layer... Continue Reading →

Velvet Cardigan started

There is just nothing like crochet and bulky yarn for when you need to feel like you've made a ton of progress in a hurry. On a whim today I decided that it had been too long since I started a new crochet project. I did a bit of stash diving and decided to try... Continue Reading →

Hoodie finished!

I finally finished it! It's been in progress since June, but it feels like forever. I'm so happy with how it turned out. For reference, the original pattern is The Campfire Cardigan. Now I can't wait for the weather to get cooler so I can actually wear it. The hot summer temperatures we have today... Continue Reading →

Hoodie mostly finished!

I actually finished crocheting my hoodie today! All that is left is weaving in the ends and adding the button(s). I still haven't decided if I'm using one or both of the buttons I bought, I want to try it on once everything else is finished and see what I prefer. I'm so pleased with... Continue Reading →

More hoodie edging

I got about a row and a half of the border done tonight. It would have been more but I spent a bunch of time winding up some of the leftover yarn from this project into balls for storage. I used a multi-color "cake" yarn (Lion Brand Mandala) for this project, but I ended up... Continue Reading →

Hoodie finishing

I finished the hood! I got it all sewed up and the ends woven in, then did a couple rows of granny stitch border to give it more depth. Now I'm working on the final edging of the whole cardigan. I'm playing a bit of yarn chicken, hoping to do one row of SC in... Continue Reading →
