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 →

Acorns Socks progress (7)

This, friends, is what happens when I get excited about learning new things. I went from having just started the acorn cap pattern on one sock, to having almost completed both socks. The acorn cap pattern stitch is a bit easier now that I've had a lot of practice with it. The pintuck was painful,... Continue Reading →

Acorns Socks progress (6)

I've made the switch over to doing these one at a time for now. Most likely I could have kept going with both together, but I was so unsure about how the stitch pattern would work and it was easier this way. The pattern that is meant to represent the acorn's cap is incredibly pretty... Continue Reading →

Acorns Socks progress (5)

I've been making progress on these socks much more than on my cardigan. I've finished both heels completely and am working my way up the legs. There are still a few more rows to go before the pattern changes, and until then I'm going to keep doing these two-at-a-time. The pattern at the top of... Continue Reading →

Acorns Socks progress (4)

I made it up through the heel flap and am ready to start on the leg now. I think I may try to work on these a lot this weekend. The top of the leg and the cuff of these socks have some new-to-me techniques and I'm excited to try them. One thing I need... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget progress

I spent some time knitting this last night while I was on the phone with my dad. The twisted rib knit flat is very slow going but it looks good. Working on this project helped distract me from how much my arm hurt after my 2nd covid shot yesterday. Still, I'd happily go through the... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget started!

I intended to start this Fluff Nugget Cardigan on Saturday but I got a little distracted. I cast on on Sunday and have added just a few rows. Part of the reason for the slow start was doing the tubular cast on for several hundred stitches. It looks great but it took an entire evening... Continue Reading →

Acorns Socks progress (3)

I worked on my socks much more than expected this weekend. I made it through the gusset on both socks and the heel turn of one. This gusset construction was new to me. It looks very nice but I do wonder if I'll be able to feel those increases as I am wearing the socks.... 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 →

Acorns Socks progress (2)

Here's my latest progress on my socks. It's not a ton but it was enough to start transitioning into the next color of this gradient yarn. Oranges and yellows are not usually my thing but I think this gradient is going to be absolutely perfect for this pattern. I was hoping to be a bit... Continue Reading →
