Dryad Hat

The Dryad Hat was my longest running non-blanket UFO / WIP, and so I'm really glad to have finished it! It wasn't a difficult knit, but it did take a little more focus than some of my other knitting projects because I had to pay attention to reading the chart as I was knitting. (It… Continue reading Dryad Hat

2019 Christmas Socks

I had three pairs of hand-knit socks that I gifted to family this year, and I don't think I've done a full FO post for any of them. So instead, I'm going to give you an abbreviated FO pic for all three combined! I knit these socks for my brother-in-law. I planned ahead on these,… Continue reading 2019 Christmas Socks

Simple Brioche Cowl

I finished my brioche cowl! I enjoyed knitting this, and learning a new technique. It was simpler than I thought it would be... until I discovered a mistake several rows down. Then I realized that I have NO IDEA how to backtrack and fix brioche knitting correctly. I'm not even sure I could rip… Continue reading Simple Brioche Cowl

First, I had mentioned that there was a knot in the yarn which meant I had to go through the yarn to get to… Continue reading WIP Wednesday ~ a random update

FO: Katy Jubilee Shawl

I believe I promised you FO pictures for the Katy Jubilee shawl! Here we go! I really love the way this turned out. You can never be quite 100% sure when knitting lace, because during the knitting process it doesn't look the way it's going to once it's finished. I would argue that the… Continue reading FO: Katy Jubilee Shawl

FO: Seeta and Cupcake Mitts

Two more gift knits are going to be featured on today's blog. Yay! I'm not going to get too wordy with this post, though. If you want more details just ask, but otherwise I'm going minimalist today. First up, we have the Seeta Mitts: And then next is the Cupcake Mitts: These were both a… Continue reading FO: Seeta and Cupcake Mitts
