A couple weeks ago, I tried unsuccessfully to use a pretty wildly variegated yarn with a cowl pattern that used lace and texture stitches, which did not work. Both parts of the project were great individually, but not great together – this left me with a pattern and some yarn that I needed to do… Continue reading Bat Cowl!
After poking around in my stash, I found some lovely charcoal gray sock yarn that I had actually just unraveled from a shawl I wasn’t wearing to use in my Christmas scrappy stripe socks. So here’s what I’ve got: Please excuse the terrible indoor nighttime photo – will get a better one as things progress.… Continue reading Stash to the Rescue!
I’ve been poking around my stash trying to figure out what to make Christmas socks out of, and came up with this: They are Christmas mini sets from Gnome Acres that I’ve had for a couple years, and have not been able to figure out what to do with them. So I think I’m going… Continue reading Christmas In July Socks
It’s blocking right now, and then I have a few ends to weave in, but basically it’s done! I promise I will write about something else tomorrow 🙂
and knitting and knitting and knitting… I was very much hoping to be done with this today, and was on track to finish, but then some events happened and I’m here. Halfway through the ribbing. So. 8 more rows of ribbing, and the bind off. Here’s hoping for no more distractions tomorrow!
Arachne update! Tomorrow night I’m going to try it on and see where I’m at. I think I need to do an inch or two more of stockinette, then on to the ribbing! It’s really tempting to just go at it all weekend, but other activities may intervene. Onward!
The yarn is Radioactive Rainbow from Knitted Wit, and I didn’t really use a pattern, it’s just my plain toe-up sock recipe. If anyone is interested in the method, let me know and I will drone on about it in as much detail as you can stand 🙂 Happy Pride Month!
You may remember a couple weeks ago I bought some What We Do In The Shadows yarn, which I tried unsuccessfully to make into a bat cowl. I’ve been thinking since then that maybe that yarn would best be used for some kind of planned pooling project. For non-knitters, planned pooling is when you take… Continue reading Planned Pooling Party
Both sleeves are done! Now it’s on to finish the body.
