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 →

Colorwave Dishcloth finished!

I'm very pleased with the way this came out. I think I may have messed up the finishing and bind-off rows a little bit but otherwise it looks really nice. More importantly, it gave me some good practice with brioche. This dishcloth used up just about half of a ball of Dishie, and I think... Continue Reading →

FO Friday: Delightful Dishcloth

It's always nice to have a super quick project after coming down from making something big like my sweater. I started this dishcloth earlier in the week. I wanted something mindless that I could take with me to my first vaccine appointment. This filled that need perfectly, and I got more than half of it... Continue Reading →

Pull Me Over finished!!

It's all done and it barely took one month from start to finish! I finished the bind off on the second sleeve yesterday morning and then threw it in to soak. This yarn bled a ton, so much so that I eventually gave up on trying to get all the excess dye out. I soaked... Continue Reading →

1986 Socks finished!

Look at me with a FO Friday as if I planned it all along! These socks felt like they took a bit longer than usual, but it was still just around a month and a half. I've definitely decided that toe-up is not my method of choice for simple socks. If I'm doing a complex... Continue Reading →

St. Paddy’s Hat

I was browsing new patterns over the weekend and ran across this St. Paddy's Hat. It seemed like a good way to use up some of the wool I had bought for Christmas Balls that never got made. It also seemed like good practice for doing stranded colorwork. Even though I made several colorwork projects... Continue Reading →

Easy as Pie Dishcloth

I wanted to use up the scraps of cotton I had left over from my tea towel so I decided to make a scrappy dishcloth. The pattern is the Easy as Pie Dishcloth, and honestly... I don't love it. It was definitely easier than the Seamless Circular Dishcloth I've made many times before, but it... Continue Reading →

Tea Towel finished!

It's all done! I finished the last bit in a hurry and it turned out great. I measured it against the tea towels we normally use in the kitchen and it is just about the perfect size. I'm going to give it a quick wash before we start using it, but otherwise it is ready... Continue Reading →

Gingerbread House Stitch Marker

After seeing how cute the stitch markers from The Corner of Craft were in person, I decided to try my hand at making one myself. She has a nice tutorial video on her YouTube channel that explains how. I'm pretty proud with how this one turned out, even if it took me several hours of... Continue Reading →
