Yarn Haul #9 and #10: Gina Brown’s and STASH Lounge

January 6, 2019 | Comments

It’s been a while since my yarn haul post. Admittedly, I have done some yarn hauls since I last posted. But what better way to start the new year with my latest two trips? This year, I am going to try my darndest to not buy more yarn. My cousin is expecting a baby soon and she asked me to knit a blanket and a hat for the baby so I know I will have to buy yarn for that (I don’t want to use my cheap yarn for a newborn).

Year of Projects: Year 8 Week 1

January 4, 2019 | Comments

Year of Projects Year of Projects is a group on Ravelry where members share and update each other on the progress of their knitting, crochet, cross stitch, or other crafty projects. 2019 I joined this group mostly because I wanted to kick my butt into gear and actually destash. I have a lot of yarn that is slowly being chipped away at. I also have a lot of works in progress that I should either finish up or frog (discard).

FO: Rust Snowfall Mittens

December 26, 2018 | Comments

FO stands for “finished object.” It is a term used by knitters and crocheters. Yarn: Loops & Threads Urban (Rust colourway) Pattern: Snowfall Mittens Rust Snowfall Mittens For a Christmas present, I made a pair of mittens for one of my cousins. It’s supposed to match the infinity scarf I made her. My mom was the one who picked the colour! This yarn is discontinued and I only had one skein of this colour so I was slightly worried about running out.

FO: 10 Minute Soap Scrubby

December 5, 2018 | Comments

FO stands for “finished object.” It is a term used by knitters and crocheters. Yarn: Red Heart Scrubby (Ocean colour) Pattern: 10-Minute Soap Scrubby I’ve had this yarn sitting around for a couple months now and I figured it would be a good time to finally use it. I’ve been suffering from dry skin lately and maybe I just need to exfoliate and moisturize more. So I scoured Ravelry for some patterns that use this yarn.
