A quick 40-minute knit from Joelle Hoverson’s More Last Minute Knitted Gifts. These baby socks were knit up using a bit of Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label Aran Weight in the chris gray color way I had laying left over in my stash from another baby project. It’s so gorgeous and soft–buttery almost–that it makesContinue reading “baby socks.”
I can’t max poetic enough on Joelle Hoverson’s More Last Minute Knitted Gifts book, which I’ve had for years and am currently using for Leah’s Lovely Cardigan. Every pattern in this book is gorgeous, and I love how she breaks it down into the amount of hours a gift will take to knit. It helpsContinue reading “last minute knitted gifts.”
The proud owner of a True Brit Knits knitter badge. I love it.
There’s nothing better than a yarn delivery. Last week, I received three amazing skeins of Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label Aran in the chris gray, lucky penny, and shadow colorways for some baby gifts. This yarn is so gorgeous it might be my new favorite, even though I used it to knit my French BraidContinue reading “stash & plotting.”
Getting back to finishing Leah’s Lovely Cardigan this labor day. Meant finishing the body, reserving stitches for the underarms, and finally casting on for sleeves. I see the end of this project in sight; its only been since 2011. I’m glad that I finally decided to get back to it instead of starting a newContinue reading “labor day leah.”
I knit the Dune infinity scarf for my mum’s birthday this year. She’s worn it a whole pile of times, but I finally got a snap of it this weekend. Knit up in the second size (regular loop), I used two skeins of Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage yarn in the nassau blue colorway. This is a funContinue reading “dune.”
I finally finished my Saco Stripes tank top, knit up in Quince and Co.’s delicious linen yarn, sparrow, in the sans color way for the main and pigeon for the stripes. A few mods: I didn’t pick up stitches and bind off around neckline and sleeve line, because when I did, it actually looked sloppier.Continue reading “saco stripes.”
Another shot of my cross stitch, in action. I’m nearly done but have had to put it down for deadlines on other projects that are gifts.
At least three years back, I started this brilliant cardigan–a match to the one my friend r.r. had recently completed. The yarn is to die for and all was going swimmingly, but for some reason I put it down with nearly the entire body to the yoke complete and never picked it back up. ThereContinue reading “leah’s lovely cardigan.”
I decided to try my hand at making homemade millet granola. I used this recipe (mostly) but my dried fruits included cherries and apricots (because I am an apricot nut) instead of just dried cranberries. My oil choice was also butter, simply because I like its salty taste and it browns up in the ovenContinue reading “millet granola.”
Finally blocking the front and back pieces of my Saco Stripes tank top by Quince and Co. Knit using the straw and pigeon colorways of Quince and Company’s linen yarn, sparrow. All that’s left is to seam this badboy. Hope it comes out as I envisioned and the fit is right. See me wax poetic onContinue reading “wet blocking.”
I need to get back to sketching. I haven’t done much drawing this year.
