Bought this vintage sock blocker at a local thrift store for next to nothing and knew it would need (at least) one sock made for it. It's enormous. Haha, love it. Sanded, cleaned and applied some Cargen beeswax to add moisture to this dry wood and get some color. Made up a heel of sorts… Continue reading A loooooong stocking
Christmas Bynx Hat
Love this pattern and the poms I found on etsy. I don't have anyone in mind for these just yet, but that's never a problem for long! I also have a few January birthdays to consider.
Just a fun garland on a lazy Sunday. There are no patterns for the bitty clothing, but the undies were a kit from Susan B Anderson - Get it here.
Dog Walking Sweater
Fresh off the needles! A Plymouth Encore wool hoodie and it's perfectly roomy and warm and best of all - washable. It's finished and fits without a pattern, just some math! 🪡🧵🧶🐑
Wine Bottle Sweaters
Been locked up for so long, started knitting for my booze! The pattern is the Wine Bottle Sweater by Karla Lockwood. The hats were made by casting on the neck count and just going from there. These are a fun project and people really enjoyed receiving them! Putting this one away for next fall While… Continue reading Wine Bottle Sweaters

Since my husband loves… Continue reading Framing is expensive

This one is great on his frog. Don't try this at home! The gnomes are taking over. Crickets too Gnomes snooze along… Continue reading More gnomes… Why not?
Pumpkins for fall
A few petite pumpkins for fall gift giving with one to my October-born middle boy. This adorable and free pattern found here. Great TV watching quick project from stash. I made 8 in a weekend, just couldn't stop. The minis are made with sock wool, then some larger with dk.
Found some wood turnings in my stash and just painted them in a vintage way. They're odd, but I think they sorta work on the mantle.
Back to Knitting!
After 3 months of she shed projects and terrible heat, today is a stunning day even though I'm stuck working inside. It's nice to have this break, especially from the humidity. I woke up early, planted a boxwood and put mothballs under the she shed, since that's what people do to ward off snakes, mice… Continue reading Back to Knitting!
