This year, it’s the Noro Taiyo Sock yarn (that is being discontinued by the way) that I bought at the Ball & […]Read More WIP: Taiyo Sock Sleeveheart Shawl
Yup. I’m playing Pokémon GO. I caught some special Pokémon this morning, and decided to see if Ravelry had any special knitting patterns pertaining to the pocket monster I caught. I was in luck! I had a very productive Pokémon GO session. Sam, my DH, was driving, and I managed to catch a Pikachu, Poliwag, […]Read More Pokémon GO and Knitting

Ever spend an entire day on one project, make a mistake, and realize that entire thing needs to be scrapped? Yeah, that was my Sunday. I was working on a piece of a baby sweater, and totally forgot to bind off on part of the sleeves for the one side. It’s in yarn, too, that’s […]Read More Complete and Utter Failure

It’s getting warm, and usually that means my thoughts turn to knitting projects that are smaller with cotton. That usually mean washcloths. I got a ton of cotton yarn at the Art of Recycle in Ephrata, PA on Monday, and have started knitting washcloths from it. As I was brainstorming this post, I thought, why […]Read More Washcloth KAL/CAL
