Splash of Cranberry Fingerless Mitts Pattern

I really love garments and objects that have an unexpected pop of color. I especially love aquamarine blue with a pop of red as an accent. These colors seem to go so well together and seeing them together makes me happy! These little fingerless mitts are perfect for the times in between seasons when it …

Kitchen Scrubbies

I had found some old acrylic yarn down in the depths of my stash, and it was so rough and scratchy and I couldn’t figure out what I would ever knit with it. Being the frugal person that I am, I could not just toss it out.  I decided it was coarse enough that it …

Fingerless Mittens Pattern

I had made some felted slippers out of Peace Fleece this winter and had just under one skein of this lovely wool left when I was done. One night I had the inspiration to make some fingerless mitts with it and use a little bit of Peace Fleece in a contrasting color in them as …

Toirneach Kilt Hose

I found this pattern on Knitty and immediately wanted to try it.  I do not really have the need for kilt hose as I am not Scottish nor do I own a kilt!  (Of course I always want warm socks, that never changes!)  I do have quite a large group of friends who adore men …

Big Squishy Bed Socks

Just in time for summer!

The wool hoodie is done! Of course I finished it just in time for the 80 degree weather. I am so very pleased at how this came out. I did add extra cable repeats in the body because I don’t like short sweaters, and I had to make the sleeves longer, well, because I have …

Just a little something :)

My friend Autum at Smith Family Stories had a baby in December and his dedication was this Sunday. I bought him a little outfit but because his mom is a knitter, I had to make something and needed a quick project. She has red, white and blue socks, so now baby Daniel has a burp …

Rogue

I have been working on a sweater since Fall, and after a break from it, I’ve picked it up again. The name of the pattern is called Rogue and I’m using Cascade 220 Heathers which is 100% wool. It’s a pullover with a hood, was supposed to have a front pocket but I decided to …

Sneak Peek

I just had a moment where the spelling of my title looked all wrong. Don’t you hate it when that happens? I am loving working on my Shur’tagal socks. It’s a fun pattern! I’ve done two repeats on the first sock so far and here is a quick pic!
