This is my second handspun yarn. It was one of the braids I bought last year at the fiber fetival because I loved the colors so much. I adore the colors and how they play together. Some of them matched up but those that didn’t made such lovely…

Spartan Tunic

I felt bad about the quality of the tunic I did for our Spartan since it ripped up pretty badly almost instantly. Some of that is the wear it was put through, a lot of it was the way I did the trim and not completely covering the edges. So I made him a…

After the fifth or sixth time or scrubbing my forehead with the back of my sword hand in as many minutes I knew I needed a solution. So super simple headband was made. It keeps the stray hairs and sweat from my face when fighting. I started with one…

These were incredibly fiddly socks … and I’m not sure it was worth it. They’re interesting. They don’t feel uncomfortable in my boots. However, I’m not thrilled with all the wrapping and shifting stitches. At least the color really works with the pattern…

The last quiver I made to carry my arrows onto the field had a major flaw that I didn’t notice until it was far too late. The bottom was very thin and several of the arrow nocks ripped a hole in the fabric. This led to a bent arrow at an event when I…

We have a new guy in our unit and he’s in the mode of buy all the things. This is his first sword which we covered in unit colors. It’s not great construction but it was good to get him into the game. Luckily he ordered a new sword from our preferred…

WIP Wednesday: Handspun Hat

Knitting: I’m thrilled to be knitting this project. It’s the first time I’ve knit with my handspun yarn and it’s the first yarn I spun myself. I can’t wait to wear the hat when it’s done. Spinning: I have lots to chose from when it comes to fiber but the…

WIP Wednesday: Wedge Almost Complete

Knitting: These go so fast. They have such an easy rhythm to them thanks to the short rows. I’d like to think they’ll be done by next week but we have a big battle day on Saturday so no knitting then .. though we have Sunday as a day of rest so maybe. I…

WIP Wednesday: Wedge Part 2

Knitting: The second sock seems to be going pretty fast. It helps that the short rows go quick and I know exactly how many repeats to do in each section. Of course, I also spent most of Friday knitting and being lazy. Spinning: New fiber tonight, and as…

WIP Wednesday: Almost Halfway

Knitting: I’ve finished all the decreasing for the toe and now it’s time to increase and then kitchner the ends together. The construction is pretty simple. Though setting up for where I needed to be exactly to begin the toe was a bit confusing, likely…

WIP Wednesday: Purples and Blues

Knitting: The construction of this sock is interesting, and seems to fly by with all the short rows. I’ve already made it to the heel turn so hopefully the rest will go quickly as well. Spinning: I started a new fiber last night. I previously attempted…

Knitting: I have inadvertently started another sock from Knit. Sock. Love. The random grab gave me yarn with very short color sections and I think this pattern will work with that really well since there’s so many short rows. Thanks to a movie Friday…
