Aren't they beautiful?! This has been a huge goal of mine since I started to teach myself to knit, but I still can't believe how easy these were. Each one took a bit more than one month at my usual knitting pace, which isn't too bad. Now that I have some confidence I hope I... Continue Reading →
I wanted to use the last scraps of leftover yarn to get them out of my stash, so I made this. It's the mini version of the dishcloth. I accidentally made one too many repeats, but it turned out ok anyway. It has character, and it will be a perfectly fine coaster. Now that I... Continue Reading →
I had no idea how much I needed a quick project until this came off my needles. When work gets busy and my schedule is overwhelming it feels so good to knit something mindless that doesn't take forever. With some determination and a nice binge watch of Stranger Things this knit up in a flash.... Continue Reading →
I actually finished my shawl in time for the parade! Unfortunately it was hot and I ended up not taking it with me. Disappointing but probably for the best because we were out in the sun for several hours. It didn't matter anyway because we were having way too much fun.
I finished this little bag! It is so cute and I like it so much I might use it all the time! It's so cheerful it really brightens my day. I also started a second Pride project, but I'll wait until tomorrow when I'm a little farther along to show you. I wanted something with... Continue Reading →
Hooray! I actually finished it a couple days ago, but was busy traveling to visit with friends so you had to wait to see it. I am generally happy with it, but I wish I had used a less busy yarn so the cables would stand out more. They were a lot of work and... Continue Reading →
Yay! It looks great, was fun to make, and only took me a few weeks of sporadic work to finish. This was definitely a good project for me to take a break from knitting and actually finish something quickly. I can't wait to show it off at the farmers market this weekend!
For reasons that nobody can explain, I decided to make this fish bag this weekend instead of working on my skulls bag. It's super cute and I have no idea what I'm going to do with it yet. It was a very quick and easy project though! (Pattern here if you want to try it... Continue Reading →
I finally finished it! It's beautiful and very warm and I love it. The best part is that it's still cold enough here to use it a few times before winter is over. This is also a good point for me to take a brief hiatus from the blog. I've got some major life event... Continue Reading →
Ok it's more of a coaster size than a full dishcloth, but it is functional. I just kept going until I ran out of yarn. It is actually a really good size for resting my phone on so it doesn't clatter on my desk.
I actually managed to finish it tonight! There was a little yarn left over, since I wanted to keep the two gray sections the same size. I am so happy with this little project. Now I have to decide what to use the other 3 skeins on!
It's finally done! Double knitting is a bit exhausting but it was fun to see the pattern get more and more complete every day. I'm still not sure what I'll end up using it for. I was thinking about turning it into a pillow cover but it would be a little sad to lose the... Continue Reading →
