At the end of last year I accomplished a goal I've had since I first learned to spin - knit a pair of socks with my own handspun yarn! It took me years before I had the skill and confidence to even try, which is what makes this pair so special even though I didn't make them for myself.
I learned a lot and am ready to knit more socks with my own handspun. As well as tackle more of my spinning goals. Have you crossed any long-term spinning goals off your list?

The Melded Scarf pattern is free, ready for knitting, and out today!

The Melded Scarf is what happens when two colors come together to make a cosy and bold striped scarf. Worked in 1x1 rib the scarf is reversible, and looks great on anyone. The Melded Scarf is also a great showcase for variegated and gradient yarns.

I originally designed this pattern for Foster Care to Success’s Red Scarf Project which collects red scarves to send college-bound foster youth for Valentine’s Day. If you enjoy the pattern, please consider making a scarf for the Red Scarf Project or making a donation to the Foster Care to Success program.

My Doctor Who scarf is halfway done! and it's 91.5" long. That means I'm going to have a giant 15' scarf to cuddle up in. Works for me. :D

My season 16 Doctor Who scarf has been a WIP for 8 years. 8 years, folks. I back to knitting on it again and aiming to have a finished, giant scarf for winter 2017. Wish me luck!

Two of the shawls I made last year went to two excellent and knit-worthy people! Knitting a shawl or anything else as a gift can be a stressful and time consuming endeavor, but I’m happy to do it for good friends and family. It’s not something I do lightly either, because every stitch is a declaration of how much I care for and appreciate the recipient.

Time to show off the gift knits! I made Aubie the Tiger for the daughter of one of my best college friends. He went to an awesome home and is well loved. I was so tempted to keep him though! Good thing I've got plenty of yarn to knit him a twin. :D
