FO Show: Deschain

Right before Fall officially started, I finished my Deschain pullover.  I knit it out of Juniper Moon Farms Neve in the Mulberry colorway.  Neve is a 100% cotton chainette-type yarn and provides great drape. What I like about this top is that it is very versatile.  It can be styled over top a maxi dress,…

FO Show: Turtle Dove

A few posts back I relayed how I was going to use my stash of Cascade Eco+ yarn to knit up the Turtle Dove which is the latest sweater pattern by Espace Tricot. As of Sunday, I can happily call it a finished object! I previously mentioned I would do the split hem, however, I…

A Good Use For Speckled Yarn

I had two skeins of Mad Tosh Home in the colorway Cosmic Wonder Dust and could not figure out what to make with it.  Over the past few years, I’ve really tried to build up my yarn stash and my wardrobe with more neutrals and solids instead of the variegated yarns that I used to…

Hasta manana, Samana!

Last month I finished my Samana top, which is a paid for pattern by Berroco.  All that is left to do is hand-wash and block it. And wear it out.  Overall, this took 3 months to the day to complete.  I would have finished it sooner had it not been for a few false starts…

Whatcha’ Swatchin’?

I went to one of my most favorite LYS Natural Stitches a little over a week ago and decided to get measured for one of the Custom Fit patterns by Amy Herzog. So to start the process, I had my measurements taken and picked out my yarn. Picking out yarn… fun! Getting measurements taken… not…

Turqs & Sapphires: A brief dyeing lesson

Here is my newly dyed colorway Turqs & Sapphires in my sock base Cushy which yields 437 yds. of 75% SW Merino & 25% Nylon. It is a real super soft and squishy yarn. The colorway is repeatable and at the moment, I have one available in my Etsy shop until my wholesale shipment comes…

Three New projects!!

I have 3, yes 3, additional projects I will be casting on (hopefully this evening lol). One is the Mini Ballerina by Schneckenstrick Designs, Lolita by Jamie Thomas of Imaginknits, and the last project with be a granny square blanket from Lion Brand Yarn. If you aren’t familiar with Lion Brand Yarn company, they have…

Super Woman & Morning Glory

I’ve dyed up 2 more colorways for the shop. The first is called Super Woman and it’s a mixture of sapphire blue and fire engine red yielding approx. 437 yds. of 75% SW Merino and 25% Nylon. The next colorway is Morning Glory and is a mixture of sky blue, deep purple, and ivy green…

Yarn Cakes

I don’t usually wind my skeins into cakes but I have the capability to do so and after finishing up the Polwarth/Silk fiber in color way New House (dyed by the fabulous Three Waters Farm), I liked it in skeins but I thought why not wind them into cakes? These will go live for sale…

Mad Tosh May

Kim from the Craft Stash vidcast mentioned how they have a “Mad Tosh May” project thread in her Ravelry group. I’m not sure this qualifies as even though it is being knit out of Mad Tosh Tosh DK in the Mourning Dove color way, I started it in either March or April and it is…
