I try to always have a pair of no thought, vanilla, toe up socks on the needles. The yarn being self striping is always a delightful bonus, both in terms of finished project and working to make sure they match up. Yes, I’m a weird girl who enjoys matching…

I loved knitting these and kept getting distracted by squishing them, as I do with most everything I knit. I was a little concerned about the fit but they’re perfect and such a treat to wear. I love how easy the charts were and how smoothly they knit up.…

Going to a weekend event means that you need clothing for more than one day. I still had my blue dress but Jon needed something to match. I hand sewed that patch on that morning because he passed his Ranger Prooving the night before. That’s love man,…

My boss recently had a baby and they asked me to make a pair of booties for them. Once pattern and yarn was decided on these were shortly produced. I had so much yarn left over that I also did a bib to match. I love the garter stitch and how squishy it…

Of course what caused my green dress was this tabard for Jon. We have to match after all. It was in the middle of the trim on this one that I thought to hide the ends in the seams. It looks so much cleaner hidden rather than folded over. Plus he’s super…

I used the same pattern I’ve used a couple times previously but made a few modifications to it. I competely left the sleeves off so I can wear a shirt under it, as shown here, or go without depending on the weather. The simple act of leaving the sleeves…

Knitting: The hitchhiker has been my main go to project lately and it’s certainly showing it. I’ve memorized the pattern and each wedge is fairly flying off the needles, even with stopping to squish the garter stitch. I also found some time during gaming…

Knitting: This gorgeous yak and bamboo yarn was up next when I went fishing for a new project. Thanks to Megan for suggesting the hitchhicker shawl. I love how it’s knitting up and I think it’s going to play wonderfully with the colors. The yarn itself is…

Knitting: I love how fast these are knitting up. The pattern is easy to memorize. Even with doing both at the same time I don’t feel that it’s taking all that long. I just got to the gussett increases so I’m having to check the pattern a bit more but I’m…

Knitting: My process for deciding what project to work on next has become a little streamlined since I moved. Previously I had all my yarn in the bedroom and the most recent purchases were on the floor next to the stacked storage container. Now that I’ve…

Knitting: While this isn’t the project I wanted to focus on for a couple days, I am seeing the end of it coming up. The next pattern I’ve picked requires the needles I’m using and while I have DPNs of the right size, I don’t want to do this pattern on…

Knitting: I just turned the heel on the second sock so hopefully there will only be another week or two of these. I like the pattern, I just wish I had more knitting time so I could get through things a little faster. Gaming: Jon and I played a bit of…
