FO: Mailin Sweater

Happy Thanksgiving, friends.  This is my Thanksgiving sweater.  I started this Mailin sweater by Isabell Kraemer about a week before Halloween and just finished it on November 16th.  Much like people make Rhinebeck sweaters, I’ve been off-and-on knitting sweaters to wear in time for Thanksgiving.  I think that will be my yearly thing. Regarding the…

I made a Toaster…(sweater)

I finally made a version of the Toaster sweater by Sew House Seven.  This pattern is actually Simplicity pattern #8529 but it does have Sew House Seven written on the pattern, so I believe it was a collaboration.  After doing a little research, it seems that this Simplicity pattern is a version of the original…

Ideas for Fall Sweater Knitting

Look at these yarn babies! I have 2 skeins of Cascade’s Eco wool yarn which means I have 956 yards to work with. Trying to pick out the perfect sweater pattern has been challenging, but I think I’m almost there… One of my favorite newly released (and free!) patterns is the Turtle Dove sweater by…

Scrambling through my stash, I found the perfect yarn for the pattern and conveniently already had knitted…

Chevron blanket progress

Here are some blues and grays in Paton’s Classic Wool Bulky that I’m absolutely in love with!! These will be used in my next chevron baby blanket for…

Knitting and Crocheting and Spinning…Oh my!

I’d say that over the past few months or so, knitting, crocheting, and spinning have consumed a greater portion of my time so much so that I have been able to finish 4 unique color samples of my gradient yarns that I’m in collabo over with a LYS, I’ve been able to put a huge…

Dessert Stitch markers and a new hand-dyed colorway

I’m trying my hand at making stitch markers out of polymer clay and it’s turning out to be really fun. So far, most of them are desserts and the like: I also have a newly added colorway to my Etsy shop called “Ethereal” in my Cushy sock base. It is a kettle-dyed colorway consisting of…
