Slowly making progress on Miss teen's birthday mitts. I'm past the thumb split and working up the arm. We are coming with my parents this weekend so I'm enjoying the beautiful weather and knitting outside. Until next time, laugh often, love deeply and knit the day away!
I finally finished spinning the 3 black and purple braids of merino I bought awhile ago. Last night I wound one to start knitting a birthday pair of arm warmers for my teen, whose birthday was yesterday. Story of my life lately. The yarn is 100% merino that I custom ordered for the teen. Spun… Continue reading Delayed birthday knitting
For the most part, I try to knit and spin from stash fiber/yarn, but I've had a few fiber purchases come in the last month. My yarn stash is usually adequate for small projects and occasional kid sweaters. But since most of my yarns are single skeins bought with socks in mind, I have to… Continue reading Stash Sunday
Very little knitting has happened here this week, so I skipped Wednesdays WIP update. While I was crafting, it wasn't something I could share just yet, but I can now. Introducing- Peanut Pals, OOAK needle felted dolls made by hand with 100% wool and love 💖. Waldorf inspired dolls made for kids and kids at… Continue reading Needles, Wool and Peanut pals
This weekend I decided to get my needle felting supplies out and work on a few projects. I used a kit I got for Christmas to make a cute calico kitty in a pink bunny suit, which was instantly stolen by Miss 4 year old and put in her secret box of goodies - so… Continue reading Gotland sheep
I've taken a few days to figure out what projects I wanted to work on. Having so many hobbies is a blessing but also most often a curse. I often feel guilty when I'm working on anything besides my knitting, since it was my first "love" (well technically I did crochet before but we don't… Continue reading Neon stripes and little hexagons
Last week I skipped posting since the only thing I've worked on is my Llama Drama shawl. I was able to finish it tonight and even got ends woven in, washed and it's on the blocking mats. Blocking shawls is definitely not a skill I'd say I'm proficient in since I don't knit shawls on… Continue reading Early Wednesday posting
This spinning project basically spun itself right off my wheel. This is from Blue Moon Alpacas on Etsy. 4 ounces of 23 micron merino and sparkle. "Once upon a time" colorway. I'll measure the yardage after it gets a soak. WPI is currently between a lace and light fingering weight but I expect it to… Continue reading Sparkly spinning
Not much has happened with my crafting. Well that's not true, lots of knitting but all on a single project with a few scattered rows on my Nanner socks. I really have been bloody horrible at updating here, sorry about that. And yes, I've been watching a bunch of British TV. I've made lots of… Continue reading Sunday vibes
I finished my lollipop yarns stripey socks. Colorway is Charisma. Just a basic top down with 68 stitches, slip stitch heel flap with rounded square turn and standard toe. I cast on for another pair with more lollipop yarn but I may finish a different sock wip that has been hiding in the ufo pile.… Continue reading Sunday socks!
