Finished Object Friday

Despite the fact that our weather is (finally) heating up, my knitting mojo has been going in force. You wouldn't know it, though, because I'm currently in that black hole of knitting on several large projects, where I knit and knit and knit and nothing seems to get bigger. I did, however, knock out this… Continue reading Finished Object Friday

Finished Object Friday

So much crafting! I used the leftover yarn from the last hat I showed you. I used the same pattern of decreases used in the Rock Cap, but those are the only similarities. Mostly, I was just winging it. But now I have 2 children's hats to send to charity. I've still got more projects on… Continue reading Finished Object Friday

FO Friday: Bunny Rock Cap

I finally have a knitted object to show off! I've been working on so many bigger projects lately, I really needed some instant gratification knitting--and what better than a hat? The pattern this hat is based on is the Rock Cap by Veronica Wilson. It's a free Ravelry PDF, and a super easy knit. I was… Continue reading FO Friday: Bunny Rock Cap

Finished Object Friday

Can you believe it's been more than two months since I had one of these? April was just insane. I think I may have skipped from March straight into May. But look! There's knitting! If this pattern looks familiar, it's because I used The Age of Brass and Steam again. I love the pattern, it's… Continue reading Finished Object Friday

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

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

Current Projects & Finished Objects

Just a few things to show this week. One FO that I forgot last time, and a few things that I have on the needles right now. This is Winifred. She is one of the few examples of projects that I have knit completely from a pattern with no alterations. The pattern is "Fruit Bat"… Continue reading Current Projects & Finished Objects
