Dropping this "big kid" blanket in cheerful colors off to Project Linus. Loved working on it. Hope it's a comfort.🧡💙💚💛
There's a great sense of accomplishment when you see a pattern, and can manage it without buying the supplies. It almost justifies the yarn hoarding you've been doing all this time. Almost. A close up. This is my version of the Fields of Clover Afghan from Premier Yarns. Modified slightly to accommodate my acrylic stash,… Continue reading St. Patrick’s Day afghan
This pattern is the Holey Cocoa! by Silvia da Silva which is my go-to for having an 'around the town' project in my purse. I added a little bit of width to it, because I love it as a wrap or scarf. The yarn is Gina that I found while traveling.
This was a fun pattern and by the time you're bored, you get to do some garter for speed, the the edging begins! Yarn held doubled throughout to try to have a thicker shawl and use up some stash. See the yarn details here.
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
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
Back in Summer 2013, we visited Ireland and I found some souvenir yarns. I wanted a project where I was able to use them all but living in Florida - a broiling Aran sweater doesn't make much sense. Settling on a free chevron scarf pattern by Claire Mitchell, I used my yardage counter and divided… Continue reading Irish Chevron Scarf
Made a top from old-weird-splitty-linen-yarn (MaggiKnits Maggi's Linen) that I really needed to either use, or toss. No pattern, just my crazy idea, but I cleared out a good amount of drawer space in my yarn dresser. (Just in time to stash some hand dyed from a friend) "Yarn Diet? What's a yarn diet?" Like… Continue reading Summer Linen Destash Top
Decided to try to de-stash some leftover cotton and make some dishcloths for friends and upcoming gifts I'm going to need. The knit ones are from the Double Bump Dishcloth pattern and the square ones are a vintage pattern from my mother.
We were headed to a grown-up's birthday party, with whiskey in mind for our gift, but wanted to wrap it in a unique way. Found the Cable Knit Wine Cover and Scottish whiskey needs a sweater, in my opinion. The first try was an off-white one from Cascade 220 "Superwash" which felted. I like to… Continue reading Well Dressed Whiskey
