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
I finally feel better from the stomach bug this weekend. Our youngest is back to her usual self, our teen is recovering from being sick yesterday, and Peanut is currently in the beginning stages of feeling horrible with a slight fever. I cleaned our main room a bit today and opened the shades to let… Continue reading Cleaning leads to spinning?
Years ago, when Peanut was the same age as Miss 4 year old, I had a YouTube channel focused on cross stitching. It didn't run for long but my obsession for cross stitching did. Like my other hobbies, I jumped in with both feet and bought -everything- I could possibly need. It definitely helped that… Continue reading Stabby things
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
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
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 started sample knitting for my LYS a couple weeks ago. It's a great way to knit patterns that look fun but aren't something I'd wear or use new yarns. So my main project right now is this shawl by Casapinka, The pattern is Llama Drama and the yarn is Yakima from Plymouth yarn. I… Continue reading Sample knitting and socks
In my head, splitting up these catch-up posts into a few smaller posts makes more sense than having you scroll through a super long post. This one will have actual projects in it so yay! Shortly after New Year's, I finished Miss 4-year-old's sweater and she wore it to her preschool art class on the… Continue reading Three weeks of crafting – pt. 2
Although I'm done with holiday gift knitting, I still have been pushing myself to finish my current projects on the needles. *knocks on wood* I might actually finish them in time to be holiday gifts! Of course, now that I've said that, the universe will mess with me, oh well. First up with Miss 4… Continue reading 10 days left
