Cozy Memory Afghan – Progress

I've finished knitting three months of squares into my cozy memory blanket. Each month has a 3 x 3 block with a color theme starting right to left. These will be the bottom (or top) three rows. I have a fleece blanket purchased that I would like to use to back the blanket when I …

Imbue Shawl 

I love how my most recent shawl turned out. I knit it with some yarn that I bought in December of 2014 to use for some color work hats. I had found that the baby alpaca yarn was so soft that was slippery and hard to work with. It split when I was trying to knit with it. I was …

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 …
