Fire Starters
I got to make some stuff with my mom over the break -- we made fire starters for an upcoming older girl camp out. Here's the result: Here's what one looks like before testing it. It is: Take a toilet paper tube, cut in half, then cut fringes into it.   Pres...

For the young princess in your life....
We have a 5 year old friend who is always in princess dresses. I think most people my age have a kid who lives in costume in their lives. The other side of the story is that I follow Liesel Gibson on Pinterest. I started to see "styling ideas" for this skirt. The free pattern is here - the ...

Happy new year!  You know what is a happy thing to start the new year?  Red wool mittens.  :)
It might be because I'm still spending time in the picture book section of the library, but red mittens always kind of remind me of Jan Brett. And red hats remind me of Snow Day. These are the same pattern as the finger-less mitts for El. Only I might have done a better job of following the ...

I finished my sweater! Well, OK, it still needs 2 buttons, but it's so close to being done! The book report: The pattern is Yoked Cardigan by Hannah Fettig. The yarn is Cascade 220 (not superwash). The sleeves are a different dye lot than the body, but don't tell. Look! It's a sweater!

enhancements with the potential for feature creep
El has been wearing a series of hand me down dresses that she loves.  They are cotton (t-shirt material), long enough to wear shorts under them, somewhat twirly and not overly pink.  We are thankful to our neighbors for their delightful hand-me-downs.  Rece...

Three Whistles!
Apparently I started this at the end of July.  Here's the ravelry link .  It doesn't seem like I've been working on this for that long.  It was easy and delightful.  The yarn is Tosh Sock in the Nebula colorway.  It still needs to have the ends woven in and...

Florida Hat.  :)  
I made another hat from my friend Cambria Washington's Missionary Hat pattern. Again, I probably didn't follow it to the letter. It's on 80 stitches and has 4x4 rib at the start. I had the turquoise and yellow-green kicking around near each other and every time I saw them together I liked how ...

The next socks on the needles....Straight from the 70s.
These are my current "to-go" socks. They are my usual "64 bit" socks - I may have needed a break from reading patterns. The first one knit up pretty fast. I'm procrastinating casting on the second. I'm hoping for identical twins, not fraternal. I've had some good luck in the last few pairs of ...

The start of another mitten tear
The last time I made mittens for El, I ended up making three more pairs of the same pattern.  She outgrew her mittens, I made her these: They are the Maize pattern from TinCanKnits' simple collection.  They are simple, with clear instructions.  Sometimes I ...
They are the Maize pattern from TinCanKnits' simple collection. They are simple, with clear instructions. Sometimes I have trouble reading and following directions - so any issues are with me and not the pattern. I knit the child size in Cascade Pacific (size 6 needle, maybe? not precise is the ...

New Socks!
After I finished my most recent pair of socks, which I photographed in January, I just haven't felt like making socks.  I've been wearing sneakers to work, not shoes that accommodate knit socks.  I just didn't feel compelled to make socks or even wear the s...

The most challenging thing I've ever sewn.
I don't even know where to start with this story.  Do you watch Dr. Who? A friend was looking for a coat like the 10th doctor wears for a kid.  Apparently, this is an under-served market.  The choices are bespoke and expensive or licensed and expensive.  If...
