FO: Sweet Knit Hat

May 31, 2019 | Comments

FO stands for “finished object.” It is a term used by knitters and crocheters. Yarn: Estelle Alpaca Merino Bulky Pattern: Sweet Knit Hat Me modelling my hat I still don’t know how to knit in the round so I took a class at my local yarn shop on how to make one! What’s nice is that the yarn shop is just a 20 minute walk along a very scenic river and lively street.

Year of Projects: Year 8 Week 3

January 20, 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. This week was rough. At work it was suddenly crunch time and we felt like we were going a million miles an hour. We were given things to do, which is fine since we were running out of work, but we were told that it should do it ASAP for the current release.

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.

January 9, 2019 | Comments

WIP stands for a “work in progress.” As an avid crafter, I always have at least one WIP! Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver Solids (Aran Fleck) Pattern: Wheat Wheat I’ve tried to make this scarf so many times! It’s a good beginner scarf, I’ve heard. Just vanilla knit and purls (is all knitting just knits and purls? I’m still a newbie knitter).

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).
