Finished Object Friday

I'm back again, and with MORE finished objects! The first one this week was a request from Ash, a black Pussy Hat. For those of you unfamiliar, the Pussy Hat Project starts with an extremely simple hat with a flat, seamed top to form cat ears. These hats can come in all colors, but are… Continue reading Finished Object Friday

Knitting Break

It's  been a while since we had one of these, hasn't it? Well, now that the holidays are over, I can share some of the gifts I made. These socks are, once again, Hermione's Everyday Socks, but they're also a Christmas gift. I made them ankle socks, per the recipient's preference. The yarn is one… Continue reading Knitting Break

Stress Knitting Finished Objects

With all these socks I've been knitting, I guess you could say I've really been stepping it up, huh? It felt so good to get these teal socks off the needles. I started them way back in July, as one of my village crafting projects. I worked on them off and on, but my new character… Continue reading Stress Knitting Finished Objects

Works in Progress

Not much knitting has happened of late. I've been having a lot of hand/wrist pain lately due to a dislocated thumb, so I'm working a lot slower than usual.  I'm not quite sure what yarn this is--I seem to have misplaced the ball band. I'm also improvising on the pattern, which is toe up with an… Continue reading Works in Progress

Finished Objects

I swear that I have been doing a lot of knitting--at least two hours, nearly every night--but you can't really tell. The socks still haven't reached the heel. The arm warmers are still less than half done. I've given up on the vest completely, trying to finish the two smaller items. the only thing I've… Continue reading Finished Objects

A Mess of Finished Objects

I have been massively productive on the knitting since I went on my holiday hiatus. Most of these things are gifts, but a few I made for myself. This year was unusual, in that I actually had knitwear requests from family members. Usually they are pretty ambivalent to my knitting (I think "tolerant" might be… Continue reading A Mess of Finished Objects

I've got several for you this week! It's very exciting! Linen Stitch Kindle sleeve Pattern: n/a Yarn: Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in Dragonfly Needles: US 4, I think?

Finished Object Friday

What have I finished in the past month? Well, the Owl Cowl is finally complete, and has been worn several times by the recipient. The yarn is Berroco Weekend DK, which is mostly cotton. Word of advice: cables+cotton=murder on your hands. That right there is the main reason it took me two and a half… Continue reading Finished Object Friday

Finished Objects

Hey look! I have a finished object! Sorry about the not-so-great webcam picture. One of these days I need to get my own personal photographer. Or maybe I'll just invest in a dress form that's the right size, and just take the pictures myself. And maybe a photography class. Or a better camera. 3 years,… Continue reading Finished Objects

Finished Object Friday

Well, will you look at that! I finished a few things! I refer to this shawl as The Sea Monster. I was supposed to be an illusion project, but then it got completely out of hand. I liked the colors so well on their own that I decided to leave off the secret message I… Continue reading Finished Object Friday
