I've been working on a bit here and there this week -- and I've been working on several things since my last WIP Weds (due to the blog vacation) -- but I'm only talking about one thing today: https://flic.kr/p/XL3oq4 BABETTE!!! Why just Babette? BECAUSE IT'S NEARLY DONE! https://flic.kr/p/XHkSpA I can't tell you how excited I… Continue reading WIP Wednesday ~ Babette!
I have been knitting. Promise. But! For the first time in a while, I have also been crocheting! Last weekend, I finally decided to finish weaving in all the ends on the Babette Blanket. I also remembered that this only meant I needed to weave in the inside ends -- the ends that I'm going… Continue reading WIP Weds ~ in which the Babette Blanket returns
I have been knitting, honest. But much of that knitting has been on a pair of vanilla socks which are now on another section of knitting that doesn't show progress very well. (Just so that you aren't totally without pictures, here's one I took last weekend when I tried the sock on to see how… Continue reading WIP Weds ~ in which we talk queues
* not actually true... there has been other knitting; it's just not being shown here today. https://flic.kr/p/SyWa8Q Remember last week, when I told you I was almost done with the Babette squares? Well, this week I have finished them! https://flic.kr/p/RUQq44 Or, I have finished them if I counted correctly. If I discover while joining the… Continue reading WIP Weds ~ in which it is all Babette, all the time*
I promised you a bacon scarf FO post… and here it is! Yay! This scarf was one that a friend asked me to make him. He had asked me for a bacon scarf, so I found a few patterns that I could knit easily and showed them to him. However, I was looking on Ravelry,… Continue reading Nice Crispy Bacon
This was possibly my most popular handmade Christmas gift for 2014: https://www.flickr.com/photos/ca-bookwyrm/16126006182/ A crocheted Baby Groot (from Guardians of the Galaxy)! If you go by the likes on Facebook, this is better than any of the lace shawls I have ever knit. I have to admit, he is very cool. And he was pretty easy to… Continue reading I Am Groot!
Just a very quick WIP post today, barely long enough to show you my current knitting (and crochet) progress: Project details to come later, when I'm not swamped at work.
I know, I know. You're probably thinking, "Who needs a lip balm cozy?" Well, the answer might be you. Especially if you lose yours on as regular a basis as I do. In any case, I didn't make these intending to keep them. I made them as gifts, and since the recipients were all fans… Continue reading FO Friday: Lip Balm Cozies
So for a while now I've been thinking about how best to join my Babette squares together to make the finished blanket. What I really wanted to do was crochet them together with black yarn to create a border around each square. I wasn't sure this would work the way I had intended, so I… Continue reading WIP Weds ~ Babette
I have been doing some knitting this week, but I have also been crocheting. Namely, I've been working on the Babette blanket. Here are some new squares that you haven't seen yet: Up until this past week, I was going to use only cool colors with a hint of pink thrown in for my color… Continue reading WiP Weds: Babette
