Scrappy Seattle Shorties started

I couldn't let my sock needles sit empty for too long, so I decided to start a pair of scrappy shorties. There's a little less than 20g of leftover souvenir yarn I got when I was in Seattle back in 2019 that I want to use up here. I'm using some scraps from other projects... Continue Reading →

Single Malt started!

It took me a couple tries to actually get the cast on for this sweater correct, but it is all set now! This will eventually be a Single Malt sweater for my dad. I'm hoping to get it finished in time for xmas. It is a heavy worsted weight pattern, so it should go pretty... Continue Reading →

Another Seamless Circular Dishcloth

I wanted to use up some more cotton yarn so I decided to make yet another dishcloth. I keep playing around with variations of this pattern to find out what I like best. The "seamless" version, which starts with a provisional cast on and ends with grafting, definitely looks the best. This cloth was made... Continue Reading →

Seamless Circular Dishcloth

I finished this a couple days ago, but it had to wait because I was too excited to show off my finished tee. I cast on fewer stitches than the pattern called for, forgetting that the Dishie yarn makes a slightly smaller cloth to begin with. The result is almost but not quite too small... Continue Reading →

Very Green Socks started

I realized it has been a while since I cast on a full-sized pair of fingering weight socks. In fact I think the last pair I finished was back in December. Since then I've just been knitting shorties, or DK weight socks. So I decided it was time to get back to some "real" sock... 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 →

Napatree Tee started

Once my socks were done, I had a craving for another simple project. This bottom-up cotton tee will fit the bill since it will be miles of stockinette once I get past the hem section. I ordered this yarn earlier this year and intended to use it for my Pride month project. Since this is... Continue Reading →

Caramel Socks started

I needed an easy project to work on when I don't have the bandwidth to deal with my shawl. Socks are always my go-to for easy knitting. DK socks are even better since they work up so quickly. I really love this yarn and colorway, and I think the finished socks are going to be... Continue Reading →

Entrelac Practice started

Learning entrelac is on my big goals list for this year. I spent a lot of time looking at patterns and couldn't figure out a good place to start. Luckily a kind reader pointed me toward this pattern that has a basic entrelac blanket square. I decided to make it to learn the technique, and... Continue Reading →

Magical Shorties started

I wanted to make another pair of shortie socks this month, so I decided to get them started over the weekend. For something different, I am making them toe-up instead of top-down. It's not usually my preferred method, but since I'm trying to make this using only 2 mini skeins, I thought it would work... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket started

I began this project over the weekend after several false starts. I really wanted to make another crochet blanket to use up my acrylic stash, but couldn't decide on a pattern. Finally I settled on the humble granny stitch because it is relaxing and mindless. My goal with this blanket is to use up some... Continue Reading →

Witchling Sweater started!

I am jumping right into my colorwork sweater now that my gauge swatch is done. I chose the Witchling pattern (Rav link) because it is incredibly pretty without being an overwhelming amount of colorwork. This project is a very sentimental one for me, but I will share that story once I am a little further... Continue Reading →
