I knitted myself a slightly silly stocking cap which I quite enjoy.
Finished knitting craft projects. Posts for the projects from before 2015 were archived from my Ravelry account.
I knit a fingerless mitten. Mistakes were made.
I made myself a snug beanie hat by knitting in the round.
Finished this last month, but the blog fell behind a bit.
Took me less than a week. I like that. On the other hand, I established for certain that when I knit fast my gauge loosens up. The hat fits looser than it should. I like that less. On the other other hand, I already wear it most of the time. It feels nice.
Ended up knitting this one twice. Tried the large size first, and it ended up way too large for my taste. Frogged and restarted the smaller size, making a new set of mistakes. But the hat fits now and I’m not starting again!
By special request, some fingerless gloves using a bit of every sock yarn I own.
After more than ten years knitting, I finally had enough confidence in my ability to make something for Mom.
Took me a couple months, mainly because I started a pair for my mom while in the middle of making this pair.
Not my first socks ever, of course. But there are many firsts in these socks.
I just finished my “Amicable Socks” - so named because I made them for my ex, and we split on friendly terms.
I made a scarf for a friend. Nothing fancy, though the choice of soft, cozy Tosh Merino convinced her otherwise. She requested a long and skinny scarf. The finished product measures just over six feet long and four - wait, let me measure: three - inches wide. I had enough yarn to go longer, but if she’s happy I’m happy.
It’s not the best hat I’ve made. It wasn’t even the best hat I’d made when I made it.
