I made this project as a bit of a joke gift for a friend of mine who is moving away. I have made a ton of crocheted amigurumi, but this was my first attempt at knitting a plush toy like this. A crochet project like this would go fairly quickly, and I was pleased to... Continue Reading →
Cabin Socks started!
As usual, I can't just stick to one project. I needed something small to bring with me to work, so I cast on these socks. They will be plain stockinette so they should be quick and not distracting for the office. I really like the color combination of the self-striping, and it is a bit... Continue Reading →
Starfish Dishcloths finished!
I started these up over the weekend and worked on them in bits and pieces when I needed a break from tiny fingering weight stitches. The "starfish" colorway looks great when it is worked up. I made a total of four, in two different styles of dishcloth just to change things up a little and... Continue Reading →
Blue Napatree Tee started!
This was one of my goals for the month of April. I really thought I'd cast on a lot sooner, but I got very distracted by socks for some reason. My first Napatree Tee is one of the best fitting garments I've ever made, and I am excited to get started on another one. This... Continue Reading →
Goblin Shorties started!
I think I needed to convince myself that I am capable of knitting some socks that don't take forever, so I started these as soon as I finished my green ones. I'm using two minis from my Chromatic Yarns advent from 2021, "goblin apprentice" and "myconid sprout". I named them after the goblin apprentice colorway... Continue Reading →
Tawashi Knot finished!
We have an extra post today because I wanted to share this project too. I was not content to stop at two pot scrubbers. I found the pattern for the Tawashi Knot a while ago, and finally decided to try it. From looking at the photos I thought it would be a small scrubber, but... Continue Reading →
Another Pot Scrubber finished!
My hat is still not dry, and I am not quite up to starting another big project just yet. That meant that another scrubber was exactly the correct speed. I modified the pattern slightly on this one, casting on only 14 stitches and knitting 18 rows. It makes a better match for our old scrubby... Continue Reading →
Best Pot Scrubber finished!
I needed a quick palate cleanser while waiting for my hat to dry. This quick knit seemed like just the thing, especially since it let me use up some of scrubby yarn stash and cotton scraps. The pattern is incredibly simple, and knit up super fast. I do not enjoy working with scrubby yarn at... Continue Reading →
Smiles for Miles Blanket progress
I've been working on this pretty regularly over the last few days. As always I love how fast crochet works up, especially for something big like a blanket. I'm getting used to this yarn a bit more, and I really like how it works up. It sticks to itself a lot so it doesn't go... Continue Reading →
Smiles for Miles Blanket started!
One of my goals for this month was to start a crochet blanket, and I finally got around to it this week. You might recognize this yarn from a previous blanket attempt using Tunisian crochet. It is still not quite my favorite yarn to work with, but regular crochet seems to be much easier on... Continue Reading →
Fluorite Musselburgh started!
My Musselburgh hat is one of my most worn knits. Over the weekend I got the urge to cast on another one. The only complaint I have about my original Musselburgh is that I wish it was a little longer. I knit until I was completely out of yarn, so it is as big as... Continue Reading →
I am on a bit of a dk weight yarn kick at the moment. I was looking for patterns to use up the last few dk minis and leftovers from my Countdown Cardi and saw that this pattern was just released. The combination of simple flat garter stich with some colorful intarsia seemed perfect. I... Continue Reading →
