Holiday Knitting 2013

Another holiday season has come and gone – and I completed a few knitting projects along the way… As usual, I knit a pair of worsted weight socks for my mom – she has cold floors and likes the extra thickness for warmth. She has three pairs of handknit socks now, so this pair is […]

Dreaming in Color

Although I’ve been knitting for several years now, it’s only really been in the last year or so that I’ve really become aware of the gorgeous array of natural fiber yarns that are out there. One of my favorite companies nowadays is Dream in Color – a yarn line carried by my LYS. I first […]

Four years!

So I figured out completely by accident last night that it’s been almost exactly four years since I taught myself to knit. I was looking through a bunch of photos that I took four years ago to find something for this week’s Wordless Wednesday, and happened to see pictures of my first two knitting projects […]

OTN: Ruffle scarf!

I just had to share because I know these are becoming really popular and I finally decided that I just had to try making one myself. And it’s such an easy and quick knit – for something that turns out so pretty… Perfect for gift-making! The yarn I bought is called Starbella. There were several […]

Something that we all tend to have at least one or two (or more) of sitting around for one reason or another. Perhaps it’s because you ran out of yarn (gasp!), couldn’t figure something out […]

Christmas gifts, last-minute style

As I’m somewhat prone to procrastination, I didn’t really think much about Christmas gifts for 2011 until the season was well underway. In my defense though, it really didn’t feel much like Christmas this year, between having almost no snow to speak of in December and my mood in general being on the rather glum […]

Catching up

It’s always hard to come back after a blogging break – especially when it stretches much longer than ever anticipated… And that contributes to the problem – the longer the break, the harder it is to actually sit down at the keyboard and begin to put words down again. I’ve taken a break from all […]

Hellos and Harry Potter

Well hello there (blows a little dust off the edge of the site). It’s so nice to see you again – yes, I know it’s been a little while. I’m full of excuses but basically it’s been summertime and nope, there hasn’t been a whole lot of knitting going on around here. I could blame […]
