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.

September 16, 2013

September 10, 2013

Awhile back one of my friends asked me to knit a beanie for her, which I happily obliged. She picked a really unique yarn called Alp Royale by Feza Yarns. It’s a mish-mash of wool, cashmere, merino, and silk – a strange but interesting combination. The colors are all blue-purple based, and made some fun […]

The last of the wonder wool.

September 7, 2013

I used up the last of some unnamed, amazing wonder wool that I found at a thrift store a few years ago (the same wool that I used for Little Foot’s pixie bonnet and a baby shirt). It’s a soft, squishy little knit that will probably end up as a Christmas gift.

A magical two-toned beanie

I’ve been in a bit of a knitting slump recently, so in attempts to spark my creativity I worked up a beanie with some leftover yarn. I call it the Two-Tone Beanie. I ran out of the baby blue just as i was about to start the decreases, so I switched to the only other […]

Dad’s Hunting Sweater

August 13, 2013

I finally finished the knitting part of my dad’s hunting sweater. I started it back in May, just after Little Foot’s birthday. This is the first sweater I have ever finished and I’m pretty happy with it. I created my own pattern for this sweater because I couldn’t find anything that matched my gauge and […]
