I finished the Laight Street Wrap a little less than a year ago. And I absolutely adore it. I followed the pattern from Kristen Kapur of Through the Loops to a T–right down to using the zinc colorway of the luxuriously soft Malabrigo Yarn Twist. But for some reason, I’ve failed to photograph it orContinue reading “laight street.”
I knit this February Lady scarf more than a year ago. I love it. But, for some reason, I never photographed it, and I never wore it. Until yesterday. And now, it makes me want to knit another long scarf, but this time, much wider. This was knit up using The Plucky Knitter’s Traveler AranContinue reading “february lady.”
Since this photo was snapped last week, my Laight Street wrap has grown exponentially and I am now more than halfway through the chart repeats and nearing the finishing line. The cable and lace is so beautiful and easy to follow and knitting on size 11 needles means its working up fast. Am loving everyContinue reading “laight.”
I’ve made so many striped noros. They are a go-to when I need a fast knit that makes me feel accomplished in less than a week. Plus, I haven’t met a soul who doesn’t adore these scarves when gifted one. Jared Flood is a damn genius. Just another Noro Striped Scarf in Noro Silk GardenContinue reading “wip: striped noro.”
Sean Doctor received this Octo Scarf from me in February. It’s an easy rib and moss stitch that highlights the Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in charcoal. Looks so dapper on the fella.
The striped noro scarf I made for Sean; knitted with four skeins of Noro Kureyon.
I’ve been addicted lately to natural wools–white, off white, brown. Currently working on the Harbor Scarf in Cascade Softspun, colorway #2808, white. I think this yarn takes the gentle honeycomb cable nicely.
My new Pumpkin Spice Ruffle Scarf from Janny’s Girl. Super soft and I love the subtle ribbing of the fabric. I’m so in love with this one, I’m thinking about purchasing another because as fall hits, you can never have too many scarves.
How badly do I want these gorgeous scarves from my favorite shop ModCloth? I think they can be classified as must-haves, for sure, to pump up my generally simple wardrobe. They are both a reasonable $25. Squeal like a little girl.
A whole while bck–circa last December–I was in a frenzy to crochet up these extra long, super bulky, and wacky colored scarves for everyone I knew. And I’ve finally properly photographed the delicious neck sweaters (they so long and bulky you might as well be wearing a sweater that’s how warm they are) and thoughtContinue reading “I do feel skinny in this afghan…”
So, the past couple of day’s I’ve decided to dedicate to wacky colors, stash busting, and crochet. The result? A whole ton of these circles, based on the Hexagonal Blanket over at Attic24 (which I intend to make myself, soon), which I have been drooling over for as many weeks. But, having little time latelyContinue reading ““Coasted” through this project, for sure…now buy me a cold one, would you?”
Lately, I’ve been absolutely obssessed with crocheting up these absolutely giant 10-foot long scarves in extra-bulky weight yarn. And they are as delicious as I anticipated, like giant ropes of candy around the neck because I’ve stuck to complimenting autumnal tones like apricot or hazelut with bright bits of pink and green and neon yellow.Continue reading “Croch-eeeyy, I want one of those too.”
