Finished: Rainbow Cardigan

September 7, 2014

My coworker’s daughter just turned one so I made her a little cardigan. I kettle-dyed some Paton’s Worsted for the rainbow stripes. I’ve had this stuff in my stash for awhile and was saving it for something special. The white is Lion Brand Fisherman’s Wool. The buttons are from a local boutique called Tart, a place that sells […]

Finished: Malabrigo Sweater

August 3, 2014

My most recent FO is one that I’ve been working on for ages: a Malabrigo Dos sweater. I’ve always been a Malabrigo fan but it’s pretty expensive for bigger projects such as this. I found some Dos on sale at Jimmy Beans Wool and picked up a few balls in Pimienta and Turquesa. This was my […]

July 29, 2014

I finally took the plunge and chopped my hair a couple weeks ago. Here’s a before and after photo. I cut a total of 12″ braided and a few extra for the shaping. I’m loving it so far. I wake up with some serious bed head but it doesn’t take long to style. I was […]

Louise Hat

July 8, 2014

Last month I got a custom order for a Louise hat from Bob’s Burgers. The ears threw a bit of a fit, but once I figured them out it was pretty smooth sailing. I ended up using some craft wire to hold them in place at the crown. I used this pattern as a reference for […]

Jenn’s Beanie

July 5, 2014

I recently finished this beanie for a friend of mine. It’s a snug but slouchy beanie similar to one that I made for myself last winter. The yarn I used has an interesting story. I bought it in Cody, Wyoming during a family trip when I first started crafting. It was the first skein of high-quality yarn […]

Dad’s Hunting Sweater: The Details

June 1, 2014

I knit a hunting sweater for my dad last summer but I’m a horrible forgetful person and never sent it to him. Luckily, it fits him perfectly! I created my own pattern based on his measurements. It’s a standard top-down, raglan sleeve sweater with ribbing on the collar, sleeves, and waistband. The stripes are about 11 […]

An Instagram Weekend

May 29, 2014

I had some fun with Instagram this weekend. I took the girls for a little walk on their bikes and we made a stop at the field across the parking lot that was stuffed to the brim with dandelions. I took the opportunity to play with some instagram filters. Little Sister has not been feeling well […]
