The Haunted socks are moving along. I have maybe an inch and a half to do on the feet, then the heels, then on up the legs until I run out of yarn or get bored with them 🙂 Even though they did not turn out to be self-striping, I do like the slanted stripe/color… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
I got a start on my Broom Riding Cowl today! The blue yarn is Gedifra Metal Tweed in the romantically named color 757. It has strand of black fuzz and a strand of subtle sparkle spun into it that gives it a really lovely effect 🙂 The silver yarn is left over from my Arachne… Continue reading Yet Another Cowl
My Bat! cowl is done 🙂 The yarn is DK weight from Old Crow ArtYarn in the What We Do In The Shadows colorway. The cowl isn’t done to a pattern. The little bats are a bobble and some light cabling. I lifted the motif from the (Ravelry link) Fangtastic sock pattern and just placed… Continue reading Friday FO: Bat Cowl
My bat cowl is coming along pretty well! I’m actually binding off the lower edge right now, but it may need more finishing. I tried a couple different edge treatments, and none of them was great. The last thing I tried is an i-cord bindoff with a different but coordinating purple yarn that looks halfway… Continue reading Wednesday WIP: Going Batty
Making good progress on my Halloween socks – I am about halfway up my feet. One sad thing – I thought this yarn was self-striping. No such luck! It just kind of looked that way initially.

After taking an unreasonably long time to knit, considering they are fingerless gloves, the Haunted Handwarmers are done! The pattern and yarn are from Jimmy Beans, and were a Fright Club option. You can definitely see where the rows ended. Maybe it’s because they’re haunted? Or more likely because I cannot seem to get it… Continue reading Haunted Handwarmers Done!
Ravelry link to the pattern is here. Also FYI – the designer is hosting a KAL later this month, and many dyers are doing little mini-skein sets to use for it. Also, everyone involved is giving portions of their sales to various charities. You’re welcome.
I believe I mentioned having gone a little crazy with the Halloween yarn. Well, a lot of that has been coming in finally, making for some pretty happy mail days 🙂 This is a mini set from Ms. Monster Creations that came with the nifty little bag from the Ginger Ewe. I really liked this… Continue reading Stash Enhancement Saturday
No FOs quite yet, but I did make some progress on my What We Do In the Shadows (WWDITS) cowl. I decided to do planned pooling, but just do columns of color, and to make it a little more vampirey, added in a bat motif that I had the pattern for from my Fangtastic Socks.… Continue reading No FO
