    Took a break this weekend with a quick yarn project.

    I knitted myself a slightly silly stocking cap which I quite enjoy.

    I knit a fingerless mitten. Mistakes were made. I also figured out some stuff about Hugo Page Bundles and image processing.

    I made myself a snug beanie hat by knitting in the round.

    Still catching up with the backlog of finished knitting. Finished these a couple weeks ago. Like Rainy’s Mish-Mash Gloves, these started from a fingerless gauntlet pattern in Sally Melville’s The Knitting Experience Book 2: The Purl Stitch. I stayed closer to the original pattern this time, only adding a couple of stripes. Impressively, I also managed to stay close to the recommended gauge. How? Went a size up on the needles.

    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 know it’s a silly name. See, I found a pattern site for scarves from the Doctor Who TV show. http://doctorwhoscarf.com contains great patterns and solid advice throughout. This scarf uses the pattern for the original scarf, with some differences.

    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.

    Accidentally made one foot a little pointy. Rather than frog and fix, I just matched the error on the other side. Now instead of making a mistake, I added character.

    Made scads of mistakes, so I gave them to Brooke. She loved them.

    Now for a hat using the same yarn I used for her sweater.

    I realized after finishing it up that I didn’t knit the sweater quite right. I was supposed to increase twice every 6th row on the sleeves, and I only increased once per 6 rows. So that’s why the sleeves looked funky.

    Pretty much the only use this got was keeping me warm while typing in the middle of winter. It wasn’t attractive enough that anybody wanted to wear it in public.

    It’s not the best hat I’ve made. It wasn’t even the best hat I’d made when I made it.

    Craft · knitting · scarf ·

    This started out as the “maximum scarf” from the Knit Stitch book, but I got bored and went for a modified version of “Joel’s Scarf” instead. This is sport weight yarn, 60 stitch cast on, and and only 3 colors instead of 7. It has turned out to be my most popular scarf.
