I got a batch of fingering weight cotton yarn over the holidays and realized I had the perfect colors to make something with the agender pride flag. I finally decided on this tiny kitty. It is absolutely one of the tiniest amigurumi projects I've ever done, at only about 2.5 inches tall. This project took... Continue Reading →
This little friend was very quick and easy to make. The only reason it wasn't done sooner was that I had to wait for the marbles I ordered as ballast to arrive in the mail before I could complete the body. I miss crochet sometimes, and the speed of the projects is one of the... Continue Reading →
This is a project I've had in my head for a while now. We usually prop our bedroom door open to make sure that the cats don't accidentally trap themselves in with us overnight. Most of the time we just use an old slipper for this, but I have really been wanting a cute proper... Continue Reading →
I'm back! I'm still not really moved into my new place yet but I wanted to post my progress anyway. I managed to get a few more sections of this shawl done over the past few days while I was at home. To be honest I was using it as a bit of procrastination/stress relief... Continue Reading →
It's finished! It's still a bit hard to see unless the light is good but I am very happy with it anyway. It is fun for Halloween but it also reminds me of my own little black cat!
Hopefully now you can see the pattern enough to see that it's a black cat! I got a huge amount done over the holiday weekend and now there's only a few rows left to finish it off. I wish it wasn't quite so hard to see but I still really like it.
I did a little knitting tonight, but the thing I really want to share with you is our xmas tree. This is the busiest, most stressful xmas season I've had in as long as I can remember. Between finishing my degree, starting a new job, and moving, there's just not a lot of mental or... Continue Reading →
The scarf is coming along nicely. If I keep up this pace it might actually get done in time for xmas. Not that I want to part with it. I don't wear shawls, but I do love scarves, and I really like this one. So this was extra funny tonight. In the 30 seconds I... Continue Reading →
I almost went to bed without posting tonight. That would have been a crying shame because then you'd have missed out on this adorable kitty. He fell asleep on my lap while I was working on my scarf tonight, and then when I was ready to get up he decided to try keep me there... Continue Reading →
Gratuitous cat photo is the order of the day. He was stretched out on my legs the whole time I was working on this tonight. He didn't even notice my knitting until I tried to get a photo of him with it, then he tried to lick it. I guess it is a good thing... Continue Reading →
My trip to DC was a success! I had a fantastic, exhausting time, met lots of amazing people, and even got a little bit of knitting done. In fact I met several other knitters who have had waaay more practice than me. Now I have new knitting goals. I took a few photos from my... Continue Reading →
