Green Aviator

Here’s another project that flew off the needles! Of course, it helps that Lopi is bulky. Lately, I’ve been enamored with Lopi patterns and have added some (both vintage and new) booklets from Reynolds or Ístex to my library. When rummaging through my stash for an easy, quick project, I found two skeins of greenish [...]

Gansey Redux

It’s hard to get back in the swing of blogging when one hasn’t been able to blog regularly for a while. My knitting feels unproductive. I’ve also been procrastinating on finishing up a sock pattern, but have set this week as the deadline.

The mother of one of Mom’s co-workers had recently passed away, and [...]

Zeebee Quick

Finally! Here’s some knitting content. : )

I had some free time earlier this week and wanted to work on something quick and satisfying. A quick poke in my stash brought forth a skein of Colinette Point 5 that Blog-free Nicole (thank you!) sent me two summers ago (after the One Skein Secret Pal swap).

Goldilocks

When I started putting away the few colors of left over Wool-Ease I had pulled from stash for the Gansey Watch Cap, it occurred to me that I could make my own marled yarn by mixing and holding different color strands together as one yarn.

But what to make? Hats! I needed to add a [...]

A little cheese, a little whine

I cast-on for my first project of the new year last Friday. I was full of excitement, hope, and knitting promise. The yarn was a good match for the pattern, light colored with good stitch definition. A very good start!

Very Warm Hat

Here’s a Finished Object that I’m very late blogging. It’s also my very first EZ project. FuzzyBritches’ Warm Up the Winter gave me the perfect opportunity to knit a Very Warm Hat, which I’ve wanted to knit for quite a while now.

Triple-patterned

As I finished up the baby items back in September, I was really craving stimulation; I wanted to knit something a bit complicated, something that required a lot of attention. I knew stranded colorwork was exactly what I needed.

This is only my second stranded project (and fourth where I’ve used my left hand). [...]

Beribboned

A couple weeks ago, Mom and I took a quick trip to the State fair. We checked out the knit entries at Creative Activities building, stopped in at the new MN wine booth, looked at some sheep, and ate a couple of delicacies unique to the fair.

I found the two hats I entered hanging [...]
