Yesterday I started on a kit I have had for a while, 2 Spooky Halloween Hat by Nancy Bates. So far it’s a pretty easy and fun knit. The kit came with a printed pattern and all the needed yarns. This one may get finished this week! Hats are so fun and quick to make… Continue reading Saturday Start
My Fright Night socks are done! They turned out pretty well, and I’m thrilled to have them done in time for Halloween 🙂 The stitching is a little loose in the colorwork section, but I suspect that will even out once they are blocked.
In the end I went up to US 2.5 needles for the colorwork part and knitted really loosely, but it fits! Once the colorwork was done I went to a 1.5 for the ribbing, and have about another inch and a half on that. Yaaaayyy! And then I have to finish the other one, of… Continue reading Third Time Lucky
My Betwixt shawl is moving along! I’m just starting the big pattern band toward the end of the mosaic section. It’s an enjoyable knit so far, and I’m happy with how it’s turning out 🙂
My two active projects right now, the Betwixt shawl and the Calico shawl, are moving along reasonably well! Calico is a little blurry here, but you get the idea.

This attempt was on needles up 1 size from what I used for the rest of the sock, and… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday: 3rd Time Lucky?
I ripped back my Fright Night socks to the start of the colorwork section and am giving it another shot. This time I went up a needle size thanks to the good suggestion from azwoolgirl. Between that and just trying to keep everything loose, hopefully this time everything will go OK 🙂
My Fright Night socks are almost done! I have just a few inches of ribbing to go, and my 2021 Halloween socks are finished! Very happy with how the little bats turned out! The pattern is Fright Night by Lara Smoot – it doesn’t seem to be for sale any longer, which is why there’s… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
Apologies – this is going to be photo heavy. I am going to do Ambah O’Brien’s Halloween knit along, and am having trouble deciding on the yarn to use. I definitely don’t need to buy any, having a lot of good options already. The project looks like this – these photos are from Ambah’s site:… Continue reading Betwixt and Between
