xmas gifted, #2.

One of my closest friend’s, Mack, is downright one of the most fun people to knit for because she looks amazing in just about anything you give her (like here). What’s more, whimsy fits her well, so it felt very natural that I would whip up a pair of Through the Loops’ Reykjavik mittens asContinue reading “xmas gifted, #2.”

Antlers up!

Finally got some snaps of the months ago completion of The Antlers mittens by Alexa Ludeman. I love, love, love these mittens. Even though the pattern called for Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Hand Dyes, I used a very similar Malabrigo Merino Worsted Kettle Dyes in a black current/deep purple colorway and I’m pretty confident thisContinue reading “Antlers up!”

Another Neut?! Enough already.

Working on yet another pair of the Neutron Mittens. I’m pretty confident that numero dos will be my last pair for awhile. But I wanted to see how much this pattern changed as the colorways changed. You can follow my progress on these mitts at its Ravelry page; better yet, if I buckle down toContinue reading “Another Neut?! Enough already.”

I wish I had remained in the Twilight regarding this film…except for the mittens, of course.

I’m finally getting around to posting those Bella Swan inspired mittens I made as a birthday gift for a friend. I think they came out beyond splendid (as I’ve already started making another pair and have one mitten done and a second cast on in this amazing bluish gray yarn) and I’m pretty sure theyContinue reading “I wish I had remained in the Twilight regarding this film…except for the mittens, of course.”

Sinking my teeth into another pair…

I finally finished both of the Iceland tweed lopi Twilight inspired cabled mittens I mentioned earlier in the week and I haven’t been this pleased with the outcome for a project in quite some time. I would post a finished product photo (of which I’ve taken plenty) but I have to wait a week asContinue reading “Sinking my teeth into another pair…”

Sink your teeth into these…

A friend of mine who recently visited Iceland brought me back some brilliant Lopi Yarn which I immediately drooled over and contemplated a proper project for. It’s this brilliant brick reddish colorway, with hints of pomegranate type pink and flecks of blue and yellow, making it a splendid tweed. And of course, though I haveContinue reading “Sink your teeth into these…”

Sexy as socks on a roostaaa…

Last night, for lack of tiredness, I decided to cast on some new bulky tweed socks, hopefully meant to be done in time for the holidays as a nice comfy warm gifty. I used Patons Merino Wool in a ruddy red tweed and CO 44 stitches on size 5 dpns. With 14 stitches on theContinue reading “Sexy as socks on a roostaaa…”
