Project Details: Started on March 25 an finished on the 27th. Crazy fast knit with my favorite Spud & Chloe yarn. The pattern is a free pattern on Ravelry! I only used ~125 yards worth of yarn. I'm using the rest to make an adult hat for me!
I have gotten interweave for over a decade. A long long time. And this is my last issue. It no longer holds the draw it once did. I don't find myself rushing to knit stuff. I'm sad the relationship is over ... but happy to see if I can find a new magazine to fall in love with. RIP Interweave.
Project Details: This pattern was not what I was hoping for. So, I modified it. I cast of 3 sts and added 3 for the thumb hole. I had gauge and yet these things are so small my kid can wear them. Took me 2 days and I'm so unimpressed with them. BLAH!
Zooey told me her elephant needed a spring dress. So, this is the one I went with.
Project Details: Started on April 24th and finished on the 30th. I didn't work on it non-stop. It is a little cupcake dress that is a free pattern on Ravelry. I went up one size needle from the last knit and think next time I might go up one more. I used left over sock yarn.
Project Details: I've wanted to make Spud for a while. Zooey's teacher asked for a sheep, so I thought it was the perfect time to try out the pattern. I used the Spud & Chloe yarn (which I like for stuffed animals) and size 4 needles. I started on April 20th and finished on April 29th. The body was the longest part of the knit (all the twists). I did go to youtub and watch how to do them. I really loved the pattern and how it was written!
Project Details: Started on April 9th and finished on April 22. I have tried to destash this yarn multiple times. But the problem is I had 2 skeins and I spent $20/skein (and who wants to spend that). So, instead of destashing I decided to look up a pattern that used all the yarn. I found this nice shawlet. I'm really happy with how it turned out and I think it is going to make a great holiday gift!
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
