FO Project Report: Lingonberry Shawlette

I knit this in record speed—at least for me. I watched four seasons of Castle and just knitknitknit. I guess the mojo returned in earnest because I have been chugging away at projects. Here is one of my more impressive… Continue Reading →

Bite the Bullet and Block It

A couple weeks ago at knitting meetup (gosh, has it been that long?) Jenn chastized me for not fixing the dropped stitch in my Multnomah and blocking it, despite having cast off the sucker more than a month earlier. She… Continue Reading →

FO Report: Festivus Gnome finally complete & slouchy MelonHead hat

Well, you’ve all probably heard the Canadian election results… and the subsequent outrage. What’s done is done, but I can’t help feeling sick to my stomach. So, here is a little pick-me-up: FO reports! First up: Yuletide Gnome [rav link]… Continue Reading →

April: A Month of Books, Busyness and Blossoms

April is the crazy month at work, hence the silence on the blog. But, fear not, I have a huge update and lots of good things to share. So grab a cuppa something nice and sit back. First, let’s get… Continue Reading →

FO: Fingerless Gloves

I finished my fingerless gloves a few weeks ago. I had a big issue with the sewn bind off because I thought it looked sloppy. I got really picky about the finishing techniques on the gloves since they’d be under… Continue Reading →

Bulky Moebius Cowl FO

I picked up a gorgeous skein of Malabrigo Rasta from Three Bags Full’s January post-Boxing Day sale. It was 10% or 15% off so I saved a couple dollars after taxes. I’ve been lusting over the Rasta colours for a… Continue Reading →

Just Keep Knitting

So last time I blogged about knitting, I had not finished Gnome for Festivus, I was planning to frog Argante, start Gaenor, and cast on for some fingerless gloves. I still haven’t finished Gnome. Here is how much I’ve knit… Continue Reading →

FO: Malabrigo Rasta Scarf

This was probably the quickest knit I’ve ever made, even counting the two times I ripped half of it out. The pattern is the Super-Fast, Ultra-Cozy Scarf by Jen Reilly [Ravelry link]. It called for US 19 (15mm) and CO… Continue Reading →

FO: Herringbone Cowl

This has been my “stupid knitting” project for some time. Why is it “stupid knitting”? #1: It’s simple pattern is perfect to take to Knitting Meetup where I am constantly distracted and just plain chatty. #2: I’m stupid and forget… Continue Reading →

Damage Control

For Christmas a couple years ago, I made my dad felt clogs from the Fibre Trend pattern. They were freaking monsters! Check out my Ravelry project page to see a picture of them with my cat for size. Well according… Continue Reading →

Cat Saddle

Okay, nobody is actually riding Henry, but it’s fun to put stuff on him while he runs around the apartment. It was so hard to get a photos because he was really excited and kept rubbing up against my leg… Continue Reading →

Stitches of the Heart

This cloth has been quite laborious to finish. I started it when I was doing the review of Lace Knitting To Go by Andrea Tung. I had wanted to try a few different stitches to give a better review but… Continue Reading →

Baby on the Way

Did I scare you? Actually, the expecting mother is my mom’s best friend’s step-daughter. Because my mom’s best friend is also my godmother, we are actually close. And although I don’t know the expecting mother, I thought it would be… Continue Reading →

Finally a Finished Knitted Object!!

You thought I knit? You thought right! Haha…. I admit I am a slow knitter, and I definitely like to be motivated and inspired by what I’m making. The unfortunate thing is that I don’t like to start new projects… Continue Reading →
