Striped Baby Cardigan

March 16, 2014

Stripes have been my thing recently, and newborn babies. With these two things on the brain, I was inspired to create something – a tiny baby cardigan with raglan sleeves. Ravelry link This sample was hard to transfer from head to hand. I was determined to use what I had in my stash, which made things much […]

January 2014 Update

January 29, 2014

January was such a busy month for me. I transitioned from part-time work to salary, effectively doubling my hours (and reducing my quality Merlin time). It’s taken awhile to get into a routine…up at 7, coffee and breakfast, then phone calls until about 3pm…take a break, come back after the girls are in bed to […]

January 5, 2014

I’ve been full of inspiration this year but have yet to actually start something, so I’ve been knitting swatches in attempts to spark a flame that would eventually become an item. The swatch below is knit from some kettle-dyed yarn I made last year (maybe the year before?) and some white. I’m liking the look […]

Creative Vintage Bedsheet Projects

November 23, 2013

I totally have a thing for vintage bedsheets. They’re just so…nifty. I love the way they feel, the patterns (especially the floral), and how they tend to be really high quality. There’s a local thrift store that always has some great finds, and at a pretty good price – usually $2-4/sheet. Quite a steal! I started […]

Finished Item: Mittens

November 21, 2013

I recently finished off the mittens from the other day. They still need to be blocked but look pretty good to me already. I’m in love with this yarn. It’s soft, squishy, and springy. I had been eyeballing it for months, and finally gave in and bought it when it went on sale at my […]

Some finished things + custom order information!

November 11, 2013

I haven’t been around much recently, and I apologize. October wasn’t a very good month here and November hasn’t really been much better. My husband was let go from his job in early October and his unemployment still hasn’t come through, so it’s just been my income for the last six weeks. As a result, […]
