Xmas Shorties started

I decided I wanted a pair of xmas shorty socks to wear around the house over the holidays. I cast these on a few days ago and am already almost done. There's just a few more stripes to go on the foot before I start the toes. I love how quickly shorties knit up. These... Continue Reading →

Transverse started

I knew I wanted to make a sweater with my Dark Crystal Halloween advent from Dragon Hoard Yarn, and this weekend I finally cast it on. I decided to try making the Transverse sweater because it is basically a simple top-down raglan but it has a few details that make it look more finished. That... Continue Reading →

Xmas Socks started!

I finished one pair of socks and had to start this pair almost immediately. This is another skein of yarn from Area 51 Fibres and I am just completely in love. There is something completely magical about self striping yarn with bands of variegation/speckles in between the solid stripes. Since I had so many motivation... Continue Reading →

Another Half Washcloth

I decided to make yet another one of these half washcloths. I use the other ones all the time and I want to keep experimenting to find the perfect recipe for me. This one is back to using yarnovers. It is the same number of stitches as my first one (22 st), but this time... Continue Reading →

Winter Seaside Socks started

This is the project I worked on while I was at the beach last week. Of course I didn't work on the pair of socks that has been on the needles since September. This DK sock yarn arrived right before we left, so I cast on right away. The colors seemed perfect for winter at... Continue Reading →

Bricks Hat started

I decided to start on another hat now that my Halloween socks are done. To be fair I did also knit a few rows on my Heel Toe Do Si Do socks as well, but I really wanted a quick break from sock knitting. Given how fast this hat is going it will probably be... Continue Reading →

Beanie Lines started

I finished one hat and immediately started on another one. I only have a few more to make to finish my planned gift knitting for this year so I'm eager to get them done. This colorway is a bit more subdued but it's a good match for this pattern. An entirely ribbed hat may or... Continue Reading →

Unbearable Hat started!

I finally broke my streak of working on my Halloween socks and cast on something new. This hat is part of my planned gift knitting for this xmas. It has been a bit since I've done some colorwork so this should be a fun refresher. I'm making the largest size so hopefully even if my... Continue Reading →

Spoopy Socks started

I got this gorgeous yarn in the mail on Monday and decided I could not wait even a minute to get it caked up and cast on. The weather is perfect for fall and this yarn is making me excited for Halloween! The yarn is Area 51 Fibres "Speckle or Spook" and the pattern is... Continue Reading →

Half Washcloth

I have been using my other half-sized washcloth quite a lot, and decided I needed to make some more of them. I'm going to play around a bit with the style and size until I find the recipe I like the best. This time around I made it without the yarnovers on the edges. In... Continue Reading →
