Brushwood Beanie started

Another day, another new cast-on, apparently. This is another hat that will eventually end up in the xmas gift pile. I've picked up a few hat patterns as they caught my eye, and I'm happy to have a chance to start trying some of them. I really like the look of this one so far,... Continue Reading →

St. Patrick’s Day Washcloth

This week seems to be all about getting some quick knits out of my system after struggling with long projects. Today I'm showing off this pretty dishcloth. Sure, St. Patrick's Day is long past, but I had this horrible electric green cotton yarn I wanted to use up and a shamrock pattern seemed a good... Continue Reading →

Bankhead Hat

I started this hat almost immediately after binding off my Musselburgh. This one is a child size, knit as an xmas gift using yarn leftover from my Waffle Hat. It felt amazing to fly through this little hat in one day after spending so long working on my cardigan and my Musselburgh hat. I think... Continue Reading →

Strawberry Shorties!

Here's a sneaky project that came out of nowhere, even for me. I finally couldn't resist the urge to make a pair of socks to try out a shadow wrap heel. Then I combined that with some curiosity about whether I could get a complete pair of shorties out of two 20 g mini skeins.... Continue Reading →

Musselburgh Hat started

I have really been enjoying the Needles at the Ready podcast for a while now. Recently Kevin has decided to try his hand at yarn dying, and I was lucky enough to snag some of his yarn during a recent shop update. I wanted to choose a project for it that would be simple and... Continue Reading →

Rainbow Connection Socks started!

I started these on Tuesday. They will be my combination Pride and Summer Sock Camp project for this month. I really like switching back and forth between vanilla socks and patterned socks. Vanilla socks are soothing and quick, but I get really bored of them by the time I'm finished. Patterned socks are fun and... Continue Reading →

Mystic Topaz Socks!!

Remember when I said I was trying really hard not to cast on socks before June? Yeah, I failed. I decided to challenge myself to see if I could finish these in less than two weeks, and I succeeded. These got finished up over the long weekend. I used some really decadent merino-cashmere-nylon yarn from... Continue Reading →

Delightful Dishcloth!

Sometimes you just really need to knit a quick dishcloth. This project was started mostly to keep me from casting on any new socks before June. I'm not sure if it worked as intended because I still really want to cast on some socks. I won't hold it against this dishcloth though. It's cute with... Continue Reading →

Reversible Mood Octopus started!

One of my goals for this month was to make some amigurumi since it's been a while. I started this octopus over the weekend. The pattern has you essentially make two octopuses in different colors, that you sew together to make it reversible. I've finished crocheting all the parts for the blue side and am...

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 started!

I finished one pair of socks, which of course means I needed to cast on a new pair right away. This pattern choice is brought to you by the Nature's Cozy podcast. She showed off her beautiful Acorns socks in a recent show and it inspired me to make some too. The pattern seemed like... Continue Reading →
