Highway Cowl started!

I started this project over the weekend while I was waiting for my Countdown Cardi swatch to dry. I just couldn't stand having empty needles. The pattern seems to be very nice and clear, and I am looking forward to learning 2-color brioche. Unfortunately I am not loving the yarn I chose. This is yarn... Continue Reading →

Countdown Cardi started!

I finished one sweater and that means it is time to immediately cast on the next one! This time I am making the Countdown Cardi (Ravelry link) so I can use up my advent yarn from 2022. The pattern has a fun sideways construction that means you start with the sleeves and work your way... Continue Reading →

Snow Country Scarf started!

I know I just said that I was going to try to wait to start anything new until I got closer to finishing my sweater, but I couldn't resist the inspiration to start this scarf. Plus, starting a crochet project was one of my goals for this month, so this is really a good thing,... Continue Reading →

Kraken Cowl started!

Friends, I am weak. I was making such good progress on my sweater, not knitting on anything else for a few days. Then suddenly I was gripped with a need to cast on something new. This is a pattern I've had my eye on for a long time, and I finally got the nerve to... Continue Reading →

Single Malt (for me) started!

If you were looking closely at my monthly wrap-up post you may have noticed this listed as a WIP at the start of December. I loved the sweater I made for my dad so much that I ended up casting on one for myself almost immediately after finishing his. This one will be slightly smaller... Continue Reading →

Scrappy Xmas Shorties started!

Well it is December and I've already started a little festive project for myself. These are going to be extra scrappy shorties. I'm using up some self-striping yarn, plus bits and pieces of a mini skein set, and other various leftovers. They won't match exactly but they will definitely channel the holiday spirit. You can...

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 →
