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

I'm late, but I'm back! It's been a while since I've had a crafty Friday post for you. I promise that I did do crafty things in the month of November, though! I have proof!

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 Object Friday

The good news in all of this is that I'm a stress knitter. The more upset I am, the more I knit. I finished the Bloody Brilliant hat on Friday. It's a slip stitch pattern, so it's extra thick for warmth. I wanted something slouchy that I could pull on over a bun or a… 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
