Tidy Mind, Tidy Stitches – 2KCBWDAY3

“How do you keep your yarn wrangling organized? It seems like an easy to answer question at first, but in fact organization exists on many levels. Maybe you are truly not organized at all, in which case I am personally daring you to try and photograph your stash in whatever locations you can find the […]

A Tale of Two Yarns – 2KCBWDAY1

“Choose two yarns that you have either used, are in your stash or which you yearn after and capture what it is you love or loathe about them.” It’s been little over a year since I’ve been knitting and within that year I’ve practically turned into a yarn snob. I remember first starting off with […]

Mittens To Match The Cowl

It’s Spring now and what better way to celebrate by making mittens that I won’t be able to use until next Winter. >__> Well, I’ve been wanting mittens for a while now to keep my fingers warm where my fingerless gloves couldn’t fulfill. As always I found the pattern on Ravelry. Now, don’t laugh, but […]

More Knitting Goodies

What can I say? I’ve become a yarn admirer/collector/snob/addict. I at least can say all this yarn was purchased from a friend who is also a starving law student. So it “really” is for a good cause, or at least I keep telling myself that. ^^;; Well it’s worth the money I paid, plus at […]

Quick Project: Cowl

Whew. It’s been a few weeks since my last post. I’ve been meaning to post, but as always I’m either busy or lazy. I’m recovering from that respiratory bug that has been going around. I hate it. It sucks. My sinuses are dying. I got good ol’ pseudoephedrine to help out a bit, but it […]

Die Hard Cross-Stitch Ho, Ho, Ho

More Harmony Wood Needles

Recently, I received more Harmony Wood knitting needles from KnitPicks.com. What more could I ask for? Well I could ask for more needles in sizes that I don’t have, but for now I have enough to last me several projects throughout the year. My wonderful boyfriend got them for me as a late Christmas present […]

Fingerless Gloves Complete

C’est fini! Took almost a month to complete, but it’s done. Well I actually had to restart as stated in a previous post. These gloves were finished in the nick of time as well. The weather has gotten a lot colder to where I need wear these gloves when I’m driving or at work. I’ve […]

WIP: Fingerless Mitts (Unraveled and Restarted)

Ugh. I really loathe when I have to restart a project all over again because I either made it too small or too large. I really need to learn how to gauge a project better. Seriously. My current project is Monkey Fingerless Mitts by Michelle Johnson on Ravelry. The pattern is quite loverly. I’ve been […]

More (Clover) Hats

Hats are so far my favorite things to knit. Mind you, I’ve only knitted a small handful of other items. I can’t help it. Hats are very fun to knit. One reason why I enjoy knitting hats is because they are done by knitting in the round. It’s probably the easiest way to knit most […]
