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…

WIP to FO?? Progress on my Aquae tank

This Aquae tank is taking me for-ev-er to finish… And, I played a bit of yarn chicken to boot.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t the winner… I started this tank back in the end of April thinking ‘no sweat…I’ll have this finished in a month’, when in reality, I got bit hard by the sewing bug and I’m still…

WIP: Aquae Tank by Hilary Smith Callis

After much back and forth as to which summer project I wanted to start knitting first, I chose this cute Aquae tank and began knitting it on March 8th, 2016. As you can see, it hasn’t gotten much love and has been very slow going for me.  Only because I’ve recently started sewing and that…

Currently on the needles…

I am currently knitting on a custom fit sweater – courtesy of Amy Herzog’s fabulous website – and knitting with this wonderfully rustic Brooklyn Tweed Shelter yarn in colorway Button Jar.  Amy Herzog is the queen of fit in my opinion and has really been successful with her “Knit To Flatter” book and her custom…

Chevron blanket progress

I’m really plugging along on knitting this chevron blanket.  I love it so much! It’s really so effortless to knit once you memorize the 2 row repeat. 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…

Cowls. Cowls. And more Cowls.

Currently, I have 8 chunky crocheted circle cowls available in my Etsy shop for sale. These have been such a nice palette cleanser. I still have to complete the granny square blanket for my co-worker so I’m hoping to have that done by this weekend.

1 year Blog-i-versary!

Today celebrates the 1 year anniversary of my blog. I will say that the reason I started this blog was to get my mind off of some personal issues I was going through that really took a toll on me. I am happy to say that the issues have definitely changed for the better by…

What’s on everyone’s hooks, needles, & wheels??

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been crazy busy with life and knitting/crocheting/spinning… I thought this would be a great opportunity to share some pics of what I’ve got going on. First up on the hooks, the commissioned, or should I say bartered, Granny square blanket. This is for a work friend who I…

Rayures & new Berroco yarn

I went to one of my LYS this afternoon with the intention of only looking but we all know how that goes… Needless to say, I picked up a lovely cowl pattern after having modeled the display the store had and I also picked up some yarn to make it out of. The pattern is…
