I’ve dabbled in colorwork a little bit in the past, knitting up little swatches of fair isle or striping, but I’ve never attempted to incorporate colorwork into a project. Colorwork kind of terrifies me, to be honest. I’m afraid to ruin a perfectly good project and hours of labor because I’ve made it halfway through… Continue reading I love duplicate stitch!
Even though I told myself that I wouldn’t make handmade Christmas gifts this year, I ended up making some anyway. As before, I wanted to share them here since I’m really happy with how they came out. First, I made several bath poufs for my mother-in-law and grandmother-in-law. I packaged them with some facial masks,… Continue reading Christmas 2016
Over the past week I’ve been reorganizing my yarn stash. There were tons of skeins that I had forgotten I’d bought so I decided to roll them into tidy cakes for easier storage. Everything was going smoothly, but I hit a snag as I was caking (Can I make “cake” a verb?) some rather expensive… Continue reading Not too good to spit (splice)
I’ve finished some of the larger projects that I’ve wanted to work on so I decided to take this opportunity to make some instant gratification projects. Honestly, these are almost the best kind of projects, in my opinion. It only takes a couple hours before you get to say “Check this out! I made this!”… Continue reading FO: Ridiculous Pom Pom Hat + Octopus Buddy
I’ve been terrible about keeping up with my FOs! I don’t have very good lighting in my house so I can only take pictures of my projects during certain times of the day. I’d love to have a lighting set-up eventually, but for now I have to limit my photo shoots to the few precious… Continue reading FOs: Lightsaber popsicle hilts + coffee cup cozies + moar
First of all, thank you to everyone who commented on my last entry! It was great hearing your thoughts and opinions, and I really appreciate all of your support~ ❤ I’m way excited to start writing more informative blog posts. Getting all my ducks in a row is proving to be a little more time-consuming… Continue reading So many ideas, so little time!
It’s been over a week since I’ve written a post and I feel so bad! I’ve been working hard on two new knitting patterns, and I’ve been so focused on those that I haven’t thought to write anything. But I do have a project that I’m finishing up and excited to share. Hopefully that will… Continue reading I want this to turn into something useful.
In my last post, I talked about my trip to the Space and Rocket Center. While I was preparing for the trip, I hit a snag. I wanted to bring both of my camera lenses, but I was determined to only carry my little backpack with me, which doesn’t have a pocket or safe place… Continue reading Pattern: Camera Lens Cozy
It’s been pretty slow-going with my projects recently. I’ve finished off everything except for my dad’s socks, and I’m hesitant to start any new projects just yet. Mostly because I can’t decide on any one thing. Or I haven’t bought the yarn for the things that I want to do yet. I’ll have plenty of… Continue reading Tools of the trade
I keep telling myself that I should only have two projects going at a time, one knit and one crochet, to keep myself from feeling overwhelmed. Needless to say I’ve been terrible at sticking to this! I can’t help that I immediately start a new project when I see a cool new pattern, especially if… Continue reading Almost caught up!
