The Stashbusting Blanket

Well that time has come, Yarnation has apparently taken on a life of its own (it’s possible the yarn stash might actually be growing when I leave the room – kind of like Toy Story but with yarn).  I am constantly buying and storing yarn to use on some eventual project that will apparently happen…

Heather Vest

I have recently been struck by the desire to add a few made by me garments to my wardrobe.  I’ve been seeing people wearing some pretty nice looking store bought knits and wondering if maybe I could make that.  So I am going to give that a whirl. I headed over to Ravelry and searched for…

Cheshire Cat Cowl

When I went looking for this particular project I set out to challenge myself, try something a little bit new.  I had some of the Patons Astra yarn in the All That Girl colorway and I wanted to use it up on something that wasn’t just another hat, I wanted a challenge. What I found…

Raspberry Seed Hat #2

Not too long ago I knitted a hat in this hot pink yarn for my sister. Well I still had some of the yarn leftover so I decided to make another one, only this time a little different.  More seed stitch and a stockinette crown, more texture. This Raspberry Seed Hat is soft and comfy…

Cozy Night In

It might be Valentines for some, but me? I’ve got movies, some yarn, needles, and I’m good to go.  I’ve got two projects to work on this evening.  The first is a new take on the raspberry seed hat that I made not too long ago.  I’m a few rows in, but you can see…

Diamond Brocade Hat

One of my goals for 2017 is to learn some new knitting stitches and this latest hat is something that is new to me. I’m a relatively new knitter, I’ve only been knitting for a little over a year so I find some things quite daunting but this new to me design is relatively simple…

Diamond Brocade Hat

I love hats, I think by now that much is probably obvious.  I love them. I always have at least one on the needles at any given moment. This particular moment is no exception. When I found the Hayfield Baby Sparkle Yarn hiding in my stash I knew I wanted to try something different with…

Raspberry Seed Cowl

I have been busy working away on the All Girl Brocade Cowl for my Little Sister but TV knitting it is not so when my roommates and I settled in for Saturday night movies I knew I needed something else to work on. Since I have two sisters I decided to make a cowl for the youngest…

All Girl Brocade Cowl

Last week I finished the All Girl Hat for my little sister, well I still had some yarn leftover so I decided to make her a cowl to go with it (yep one more thing on the needles). I wanted something with a bit more texture so I finally found this one. Just two repeats…

In Progress – January

I love knitting but I am not very good at just starting a project and working on it straight from start to finish.  I’m a procrastinator at heart and I get easily sidetracked by all the delightful patterns all over Ravelry and Pinterest.  Why work on one project when you can work on three right?…

Silver Drop Scarf and Latest Cast On

I currently have two active knits on the go (I know, I will be rectifying this shortly).  I am still working away at the silver drop infinity scarf using Patons Metallic in the pewter colorway. So far it is at about 10 inches in length so I still have a fair way to go, but I…

A Productive Sunday

Yesterday I wrote about my current pile of unfinished knits, well after a decently productive day I managed to get 3 of them finished. My roommates both have man flu and so spent the entire day looking like a pair of beached whales. Slightly irritating but nevertheless it was the perfect excuse for a day…
