I tried to make this shawl when I first started knitting and it was a bit too ambitious for my skills then but I really liked it so I kept it in my queue for later. I added more rows to the body and border and it's a very good size to be useful. The… Continue reading Forest Canopy Shawl
I was able to use up some older stash in this shawl that kept asking, "What's my purpose? Why do you buy so much sock yarn and never use it?" Ugh. I really need to shop less and create more - possibly even destash a bit. I just love all the sock yarn colorways people… Continue reading Irish Fantastica Crocheted Shawl
Added one of my picot shell borders. I love the Seraphina shawl - if you haven’t made one - DO IT - This is my 10th! The yarn was dreamy. Use the link above to get any details about the project.
Makes a great loooong wrap or a very bulky scarf. FUN. This scarf used 1000+ yards of leftover Lion Brand Heartland from my Small Flower Blanket and some cowls I made. Had a lot of stress going on recently - thankfully this project kept me distracted so I didn’t lose my mind! I just switched… Continue reading Floor Length Scarf
This yarn is amazing - so soft, but it's a bit fragile, so I crochet with it. It feels like it may break when blocking if you do knit with it, so maybe be extra careful. The picture doesn't do it justice, but I had to snap one and it was near 90 out (yes,… Continue reading Alpine Frost Wrap/Scarf
I just can't gift this one, I have too many things that will go with it. The yarn was a gift for a friend and it's called 'A Good Yarn Canada Sexy Sock' in the colorway 'Leather & Lace, Stevie Nicks'. An easy to memorize pattern and what a SUPER yarn! Very calming and easy… Continue reading Leather and Lace
I tend to make the same things over, and over, and over..... Do you? I just get these favorites going and they're like old friends - familiar and comforting. The South Bay Shawlette by Lion Brand Yarn is exactly one of those for me. This one is in Malabrigo Yarn Sock and is a gift… Continue reading Across The Pond
Just some pinches of cables in a delicious worsted weight wool. Just 2 skeins of Malabrigo Yarn Rios (dreamy) and this was a great project for flying and waiting around in airports. I forgot how fast worsted weight projects can be!
In the last month I've made quite a few things. I was overwhelmed with work drama so I tuned out from everything - facebook and other sites - for a bit and really just enjoyed the quiet. So meditative to bring life down a notch and just enjoy the scrumptious and squooshy yarns and the… Continue reading Quiet time produces so much joy
The Hugo Poncho is finished! This became a bit monotonous, as any large knit might. Thanks fully I was able to trek on since the yarn was so buttery soft and I just love this color so much. A feat of love. It's a really great piece for my wardrobe. The winters aren't much here… Continue reading Finishing the Hugo Poncho
