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 →

Volcano Trail 2 finished!

I finished my Volcano Trail number 2 on Friday night. In this photo it is still a little damp from blocking, but I couldn't wait to start showing it off to folks. It was also my first opportunity to use my new sweater drying rack, and having the extra airflow really did make a big... Continue Reading →

Volcano Trail 2 started

I was planning to take a longer break before starting on my second Volcano Trail Cowl, but the mood hit me and I changed my mind. I haven't made it very far yet but I am really enjoying this first colorway I'm working with. You can also see a sneak preview of the rest of... Continue Reading →

Barley Baby Hat!

I started this over the weekend and it is so tiny that it took no time at all to finish. I'm not sure how I feel about the shaping of this hat, but the pattern is a perfect match for the baby Flax sweater I just knit. Once again it is very fun and satisfying... Continue Reading →

Volcano Trail finished!

It's all done! I had some concerns about how the finishing and seaming were going to go, so I did things slightly out of order. I seamed the top collar first, which went fine but would have been too much sewing for me if I had done both collars and the back seam all at... Continue Reading →

Flax Baby Sweater finished!

It is done already! This little sweater took less than a week from start to finish. I made the 6-12 month size and it used just barely more than one skein of yarn. It's a little bigger than I expected but I would rather make something that the baby can grow into instead of something... Continue Reading →

Flax Baby Sweater started

I had been meaning to start on this project for a while and I finally decided to go for it on Friday afternoon. As you can see I made a lot of progress on it over the weekend too. This is a gift for a friend who is expecting soon. I've never really knit any... Continue Reading →

Starting Grid Hat finished!

It's all done! Once I finished with the main section, the decreases took no time at all. Now it goes into the gift pile that is accumulating ahead of the holidays. If I can finish the cowl and at least one other gift knit this month I should be on track for all of my... Continue Reading →
