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 →
It's all done! It was very snowy here today so I snuggled up with a cat and my knitting and finished binding off all those tiny stitches. I'm pretty happy with how this turned out, and hopefully the person it's destined for will like it too.
Did I really say I was going to stop casting on new things? Because I guess what I meant is that I'm just going to keep starting new projects randomly all the time like I always do. I had to work today, and then came home and had to do shopping and packing for my... Continue Reading →
I got the second slipper all seamed up tonight and it looks great! The spouse likes the fit of these, but he’s reserving final judgement until it’s cold enough to actually wear them around for a while. I will probably end up adding some silicone to the bottoms to make them non-slip too. It feels... Continue Reading →
I finally made the time to wet block this shawl today. Now that I'm looking at this photo I keep seeing spots I should go back to add more pins, but overall I am very happy with this piece. This was some of the most expensive yarn I've used and it was a complete joy... Continue Reading →
