Ever completely forget something you’ve done a million times? My brain decided it did not remember how to make a slipknot this morning. I’m made TONS of them while casting on knitting and crochet projects. I’m not sure what happened. Perhaps it’s the new fake nails I put on last night. Perhaps I was thinking […]Read More Slipping From My Brain
It’s weird. Right now, I’m into knitting blankets. Not just square blankets, but ones shaped like kites or like a rhombus. I knit one for Allie, and I just completed one for myself last night. Found in the Knitting for Dummies book, this pattern is excellent TV knitting. It has a garter stitch border with […]Read More Knitting Blankets
I actually knit myself something that isn’t overly huge. And I’m proud of it. It’s the Cotton Candy Stripes shrug found in the Summer issue of Love of Knitting. I just picked up the magazine at a local grocery store and thought it had some nice projects in it. This one seemed perfect. Here, is […]Read More It Fits!!
My cousin Carl and his girlfriend Katie are expecting! That’s two new baby girls for the family. I finished a small gift of a hat and booties set for the baby last night. I used a soft and silky Red Heart yarn and the set knit up pretty fast. I finished both booties in one […]Read More Another baby on the way!
I knit an owl tonight! I actually did for a group at Ravelry, Hogwarts at Ravelry. You guessed, I’m a closet Harry Potter nerd. I’m only now reading the books. I’m on the fifth on in the series, “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.” It’s a bit dragging, but is picking up. Overall, […]Read More Owl Puff
I love emerald green, and was very happy when Pantone named it the color of 2013. I’m a big fan! I have green shirts in this shade, and I even have emerald green Chuck Taylors. So, when Kollabora had another one of their Friday Challenges featuring this color, I grabbed my needles and ran with […]Read More Emerald Isle Headband
Yay! I completed the Wingspan scarf I started late last summer! I think a big part of why this one went wayside was the yarn. I used some weird novelty yarns, and some Lion Brand Amazing that I had left over from a previous project. It looks…interesting. It’s a strange combination of textures, I will […]Read More Another WIP….done!
I got four orphaned projects done this weekend, three of which I found, but two only needed finishing work, and the third, I needed to finish the rest of of the project and finish it, but it was small. Here’s what I did. Shells: I had knit a bunch of theses shells, and got burnt […]Read More Four Projects Down! But…..
Yay! I finished my lacy poncho! It’s done! But, I found another project that I had completely forgotten about in my one project bag. I had started this scarf as cables practice back in October/September. I had started it over because I was doing the cables incorrectly. So, I did that. And never finished the […]Read More Works In Progress: Update One
I was bored last Friday night. I turned to surfing the Internet, and my browsing came across Kollabora on Twitter. They had a teaser up about a Friday Challenge. It was Friday. I needed a challenge, so I hopped over to their blog entry. The challenge? Black and white stripes! I love the classic look […]Read More Yipes! Stripes!
