Oh Boy.

Kiddo has requested a puppy stuffie. He’s not much of a stuffie kid, but is insisting that he needs one. I’m not one to say no to Kiddo’s request for hand knit goods, so I’be cast on for a puppy, using Puppy Love pattern. I let Kiddo have input on the yarn, and he found […]

Nope.

So, about 6 inches into the charade sock, I realized a couple things: The sock was coming out smaller than I wanted, so I probably should start over and either cast on more stitches or use bigger needles. It was coming out fine, but I was rather “meh” about it. I wasn’t enjoying working on […]

FO – Vanilla Latte Socks

It took awhile, but I finally have these socks finished! I started them way back in June, and it feels like I’ve been working on them forever. The pattern is Vanilla Latte Socks and I knit them in Baah! by La Jolla in the colorway Make My Heart Sing. Despite taking so long, I’m super happy […]

Grace Clutch as Promised

Here it is, knit, blocked, and assembled! The bag is a bit on the floppy side, but it is a gift for a friend, and I’m letting her make any decisions on lining the bag. Overall, I’m happy with how it turned out. I’m still planning on making another bag, for me. There are a […]

Almost There!

I am finally almost done with the Grace clutch! It feels like I have been working on it forever (for the record, I started it June 1). Saturday evening, I stayed up until I was able to bind of the second half. Sunday afternoon, I soaked it and blocked it out to the correct measurements. […]

Third Time’s the Charm

My Grace Clutch has been the cause of a lot of headaches, but things are looking up. Right away, I got off to a bad start. I was a few rows in and noticed my stitch count was off. While I’m still not sure what happened, something was definitely off and I had to rip it […]

Stitch and Pitch 2018

Many of my posts on adventures from this summer are going to be in random order. I’m working on getting caught up. Early June, my mom and I took a trip down to Milwaukee (about 3 hours from home) to cheer on the Brewers and knit at the Stitch and Pitch event. We have made […]

New Cast Ons

Over the weekend, I cast of for two different projects. Friday night, I cast on for my first of two Grace clutches. I’m starting with the one for my friend, which is going to be bright pink and black. So far, the pattern seems to be pretty straightforward. But I have only knit about an […]

Finished – Roundabout Socks

The Roundabout socks are off of the needles! I’m happy with how they turned out. The yarn and pattern worked really well together. They were a pretty easy knit, and the pattern repeat was easy to remember. The pattern was Roundabout Socks, and I knit them in Bohemian 80/20 from Bohemia Fibers. I knit an […]

The Dreaded Provisional Cast On

Until very recently, I had been avoiding learning to provisionally cast on stitches. Why? That’s a very good question. I’ve been avoiding it because the last time I researched it, the tutorial that came up looked complicated and involved a crochet hook. And I’m a giant, class A chicken when it comes to anything using […]
