March Socks

These are from some yarn that I dyed last year some time. It was one of my first experiments with using multiple colors and I wasn't too sure how I was going to like it knit up. However, am really pleased with the results but I didn't think there was enough purple in the yarn… Continue reading March Socks

Ridge and Eyelet Socks 

I started this pair of socks way back in September but I lost interest in knitting them because they were being knit top down. I find that I prefer to knit socks from the toes up. I finally decided to just get on with it so I could use the needles for something else. These… Continue reading Ridge and Eyelet Socks

Stitch Markers and Progress Keepers 

I keep seeing the cutest little stitch markers and progress keepers in Podcasts and on Instagram. Of coarse I would like to own some of them but they are pretty spendy compared to the ones that I buy in bulk from the  Knit Picks website. I did the math and figured that I could buy… Continue reading Stitch Markers and Progress Keepers

Striped Blueberry Waffle Socks 

Last week I was super productive. I managed to finish three pairs of socks, a cat blanket, and I made some stitch markers and progress keepers. I was pretty happy with all of the progress and then I woke up Friday morning with a sore throat and by Saturday I was pretty sure that it… Continue reading Striped Blueberry Waffle Socks

March Goals 

I'm sort of bummed out that I didn't compleate all of my February craft goals because of all of the illnesses that went through our home. I didn't even start a book let alone finish reading one. I also ended up two hats short of my monthly goal and I didn't finish my socks for… Continue reading March Goals

Daytona Day(s) 

Hey all! This last weekend was a bit exciting! After all of the illnesses that have gone through our home this month I was looking forward to some exciting entertainment. We were expected to get 13 inches of snow on Thursday so I snuggled in with some hot tea and yarn ready for a blizzard… Continue reading Daytona Day(s)

Baby Flax

I feel like I have been knitting and crocheting a lot the last few weeks but since most of the items that I have worked on have been big projects it feels like I have made little to no progress. On top of that I have been battling a cold/sinus infection for close to a… Continue reading Baby Flax

I've been sick most of the week with a cruddy cold and fever & chills so I haven't made a lot of progress on my projects. I've slept a good portion of each day trying to kick this cold.

Ugly Ankle Socks

I managed to knit a pair of socks with some yarn that didn't quite turn out the way I had wanted it too. I figure that ankle socks to wear a round the house will be a perfect use for yarns that I am not totally satisfied with. I also knit a little mini sock… Continue reading Ugly Ankle Socks
