Newborn Vertebrae finished!

The baby cardigan is done! I had plenty of time to finish it up and get it blocked over the weekend. It turned out so cute! I really love all the colors in this yarn, and it is fun having the different stripes and pooling in the different parts of the sweater. This knit up... Continue Reading →

Newborn Vertebrae progress (3)

My new needles arrived! I'm really glad they did because I don't think picking up all of those stitches with my wooden needles would have been very fun. Even with the new metal needles I had to employ my trusty crochet hook every once in a while to get everything picked up properly. Once that... Continue Reading →

Newborn Vertebrae progress (2)

I've made lots of progress on this baby sweater since the last time I showed it. I finished the back by the end of the week, and then spent the weekend knitting the sleeves. It looks mostly done now, but I still have to pick up all of the stitches along the front and collar... Continue Reading →

Newborn Vertebrae progress

One night of progress looks like a lot when you are knitting a baby sweater. I split for the sleeves and am zooming through the body now that there's way fewer stitches on the needles. It feels like I'll be done in no time, but I know I will slow down when I have to... Continue Reading →

Newborn Vertebrae started

This is the other project I was working on over the weekend. It's another baby knit for a friend who is expecting. Having two fingering weight garments on the needles at once would usually be a nightmare but this one is so tiny it doesn't feel so bad. Plus this yarn is so cute and... Continue Reading →

Fast Hat finished!

I finished up this hat on Saturday night. It looks a little bell-shaped but it fits pretty nicely. Considering that I was making up this pattern as I went I think it turned out really well. It used up most of the leftover yarn from the shawl and it matches perfectly. Puzzling out how to... Continue Reading →

Simple Cowl finished!

I got it done before the weekend! The spouse tried it on and liked it, although if I make another he might prefer it a little more snug. It came out very cozy and I am really happy with the acrylic yarn I used. The only complaint I had is that it's so fluffy it... Continue Reading →

Simple Cowl started

Sorry about the lack of post yesterday. I finished weaving in all of the ends on my Hex Blanket but didn't have time to take a photo and post it. Now that such a huge project is behind me I have more mental space to think about new things. I decided to make my first... Continue Reading →

Unbearable Hat finished!

This adorable hat is all done! I absolutely loved making this project. The yarn (Knit Picks Swish DK) was surprisingly nice to work with, and the colorwork was a ton of fun. This one is intended as a gift but I loved making it so much and I love the finished object so much that... Continue Reading →

Unbearable Hat progress

I haven't made a ton of progress on this hat. It's partially because I spent the whole weekend finishing my socks instead, but it is also because I've been playing games more and knitting less. I took up crocheting and knitting as a hobby partially because I wanted to work on something tangible instead of... Continue Reading →

Unbearable Hat started!

I finally broke my streak of working on my Halloween socks and cast on something new. This hat is part of my planned gift knitting for this xmas. It has been a bit since I've done some colorwork so this should be a fun refresher. I'm making the largest size so hopefully even if my... Continue Reading →
