Knitting: I’m still not quite sure how I feel about these socks. Luckily they’re moving pretty quick otherwise I could see being unhappy with them for being not quite to my liking and to being fiddly. But I’m on the next to the last repeat for the legs. I…

Knitting: This grey is a lovely tonal that I think will make this pattern really sing. Spinning: I finshed the bobbins for the Spring Day yarn so now it gets to wait while I scrounge around for a decent box to make a cheap lazy kate so I can ply them.…

Knitting: I love how this yarn blends from one color to the next. Spinning: I’m three quarters of the way done with my first pretty fiber. Here’s the first bobbin, I should have the second done next week. Then it’ll be time to figure out the next step.…

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…

I’m still rather happy with my shield pattern that I’ve been using for the Rangers. However, I’m more thrilled with my own strap shield. It’s larger than the other shield I was using, though also heavier. I’m getting better at using the size to my…

Jon bought a mace but it didn’t last long enough to have a cover made for it. So he stripped the weapon down to the core and remade it into this club. By the time I managed to grab a picture of the cover I made for him it had already been checked by…

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…
