Curiosity 12: Snowflakes

I have been making hexipuff snowflakes that are cute and fairly simple to do. I can’t show them all, because some of them are secrets, but here is a sneak peek. I really enjoyed making a these. They combine crochet and knitting but the crochet is simple and if you have made one or two […]

Interesting 8: Knit Headband

I have been busy the last few weeks with secret Christmas knitting but here are a few projects I can show you. I received some yarn recently as a random act of kindness from a Ravelry swap partner. I was going to use it to make hexipuffs but I liked it so much I decided […]

Curiosity 11: Pumpkins!

Fall is definitely in the air here. The mornings are chilly and the afternoons are warm. I couldn’t resist knitting up a tiny pumpkin to go with our real pumpkins. I followed this pattern with a few modifications (Itty Bitty Pumpkin on Ravelry). I used fingering weight yarn and a size 1 US, 2.25mm needle, […]

Beautiful 7: Lace Cardigan

I completed a long standing work-in-progress this weekend. It is the lace cardigan of doom awesome. I really, really, really like this cardigan and I’m so happy with it, it is so soft and fits perfectly BUT I am not ready to forgive the knitted on edging yet. It took FOREVER! I knit the body […]

Beautiful 6: Pi Shawl-Mary Lennox Complete!

I finished my Mary Lennox pi shawl. It was a lot of fun (and time) to make. It has quite a few beads and is almost as tall as I am, but it’s so beautiful. I think I need to figure out how to display it on the wall. Or I need more fancy events […]

Curiosity 9: Handmade Owls

I have knit several Owl related items recently for swaps on Ravelry. Owl Bookmark Knit with yarn I dyed. Owl Tea Tote Also knit with yarn I dyed. The eyes are buttons I pulled off an old, thrifted sweater Owl Card This is a combination of knitting and felt. Knitting the owl is easy and […]

Interesting 6: Beads and MKALs

I have been beading more of my knitting projects lately. It takes a little extra time but with all the time that is already put into a knitted item it seems worth it to make it special. Beads can be different sizes and deciding on what size to use for which project can be complicated. […]

Curiosity 7: Hexipuffs

Here are my first completed hexipuffs. These are super quick to knit up, but to make a substantial sized blanket you need a number I’m not willing to think about. It’s a lot. This is going to be my on the go, don’t have to think, knitting. The pattern to make a plain hexipuff is […]

Curiosity 6: Owl Bag

I recently decided to knit this little owl bag. It is a free pattern on Ravelry and only took a few hours to finish. I knit the colored portions from yarn I dyed (see this post). I am really pleased with the results and how the yarn knit up. I am planning more dyeing experiments […]
