St. Patrick’s Day Washcloth

This week seems to be all about getting some quick knits out of my system after struggling with long projects. Today I'm showing off this pretty dishcloth. Sure, St. Patrick's Day is long past, but I had this horrible electric green cotton yarn I wanted to use up and a shamrock pattern seemed a good... Continue Reading →

Bankhead Hat

I started this hat almost immediately after binding off my Musselburgh. This one is a child size, knit as an xmas gift using yarn leftover from my Waffle Hat. It felt amazing to fly through this little hat in one day after spending so long working on my cardigan and my Musselburgh hat. I think... Continue Reading →

Musselburgh Hat finished!

It's done! I knit it exactly to the length the pattern recommended, and the leftover yarn was less than 10 g. I probably could have made it a couple of rows longer, but I'm pretty happy with the size I ended up with. Plus this way I didn't have to stress out about yarn chicken.... Continue Reading →

Strawberry Shorties!

Here's a sneaky project that came out of nowhere, even for me. I finally couldn't resist the urge to make a pair of socks to try out a shadow wrap heel. Then I combined that with some curiosity about whether I could get a complete pair of shorties out of two 20 g mini skeins.... Continue Reading →

Rainbow Connection Socks finished!!

They're done! This is by far the fastest I've ever completed a pair of socks. It's absolutely amazing to me that it only took a week. Plus, I completely love the way they turned out. They're a little bit tight due to the slip stitch pattern, but the final effect is so cool. The pattern... Continue Reading →

Mystic Topaz Socks!!

Remember when I said I was trying really hard not to cast on socks before June? Yeah, I failed. I decided to challenge myself to see if I could finish these in less than two weeks, and I succeeded. These got finished up over the long weekend. I used some really decadent merino-cashmere-nylon yarn from... Continue Reading →

Delightful Dishcloth!

Sometimes you just really need to knit a quick dishcloth. This project was started mostly to keep me from casting on any new socks before June. I'm not sure if it worked as intended because I still really want to cast on some socks. I won't hold it against this dishcloth though. It's cute with... Continue Reading →

Acorns Socks finished!

They're done! I am so incredibly pleased with how these turned out, they really do remind me of acorns. The gradient yarn could not be more perfect for this pattern. I got nervous about running out as I got to the cuff, but I ended up winning at yarn chicken with about 2 g to... Continue Reading →

Second Colorwave Dishcloth finished!

I just couldn't stop knitting on this dishcloth, so it got finished in a hurry! I have definitely been enjoying the brioche stitch now that I'm more familiar with it. That bodes well for the cardigan I'm about to cast on. You can see that this second dishcloth (on the left) is slightly smaller than... Continue Reading →

Lucky Socks finished!

Here's my third finished pair of socks for the year! I've loved the self-striping yarn and I absolutely love this colorway. These went much faster than my previous pair, probably because they were competing with sweater knitting for less time than my previous pair. I decided not to do contrasting toes. The striped toes look... Continue Reading →
