Noros for your neck!

I have been working hard to actually accomplish a lot in knitting this winter. The latest in endeavors is a free pattern available for the gobbling over at my Designer Ravelry Page. I created the Neck Noro last week because I had two skeins of this gorgeous Noro Kochoron laying around and didn’t know whatContinue reading “Noros for your neck!”

Knitting in twilight? Yes, sir.

That’s me, working on yet another one of those Twilight-inspired Bella Swan mittens, which are just the most scrumptous design ever it should be a travesty they landed in that pathetic excuse for a movie. I honestly can’t decide whether to actually keep this pair for myself or gift them out. I think I mightContinue reading “Knitting in twilight? Yes, sir.”

Elves are cool, man? Welp, yes. If you believe Orlando Bloom or my brilliant new hat.

Success, again! I didn’t really feel this one coming on last night in the early stages of my decreasing and shaping of what I hoped would be an elfin’ pixi hat. But can I just please wax poetic on how successful this hat design was? I think I’m so pleased with the results I willContinue reading “Elves are cool, man? Welp, yes.

As I mentioned earlier, I am in desperate desire to own an elfin’ pixi hat, made by yours truly and complete with a baby pom affixed atop. While I hadn’t even really conceived of the design much in my last post, after working on it a bit more and making some much needed tweaks, IContinue reading “My facial expression looks like I sucked up several thousand pixie sticks.

A woman of many…elfish fisherman…caps? If it doesn’t work out, at least I’ll have something to stuff dead fish in for eatage?

Today, I’ve decided to take to getting a good chunk of Charlotte Bronte’s novel “Shirley” (another gift from Mum for Christmas) completed, peruse the latest issue of Knit.1 (which has loads of patterns I want to try–including an homage to trends and bloggers in the knitting world, featuring the deliciousness of chunky knitwear….told you!), andContinue reading “A woman of many…elfish fisherman…caps?

“On the Seventh Day, God created bacon.”

By now, most of you should already know my serious love for the pig–and my constant fight to stay away from the pork product as a result of this love (though bacon is religion, as my cohort Laura Cutter declared last Friday night while we gorged on tapas, “On the seventh day, God created bacon!”).Continue reading ““On the Seventh Day, God created bacon.””
