Another Story Shawl

So I’m making a third version of my Sister Shawls, only this one is not a Sister Shawl, but is definitely for someone amazing. I’m using two strands of yarn for this one and am hoping to make it a bit smaller than the last two. This first section turned out beautifully and it wasContinue reading “Another Story Shawl”

Sister Shawl: Part II

It’s a bit of a strange feeling to be finishing this up. Especially knowing that I’m going to be packing this up until my sister receives her’s. It’ll be a surprise all over again for me too! I meant to sew that little hole up, but I’ve grown attached to it. And the bit whereContinue reading “Sister Shawl: Part II”

Scarf for my Brother

As requested, I’m making my brother the Fourth Doctor Who’s scarf. I looked it up online and found one with a pattern from the BBC. I sketched it down on paper, bought the colors I was missing, and have been having a lot of fun with this. After finishing my Sister Shawl (more on thatContinue reading “Scarf for my Brother”

My Husband’s Secret Sweater

I’ve begun working on a sweater for my husband, finally. And then of course he’s having more health issues. We’re not really sure what is going on just yet. He has another MRI later today. Last week I dropped him off at the ER and, since visitors are no longer allowed due to the pandemic,Continue reading “My Husband’s Secret Sweater”

Sister Shawl Saga: Part I Finished

It definitely came out a bit larger than I had intended, but I did have a lot of fun making it. Once I’m finished with mine, I will write up the story that goes with it. I have until Spring to get it done so that I can send it to my sister for herContinue reading “Sister Shawl Saga: Part I Finished”

Merry Christmas-Some Gifts I Gave

I know. I’m still behind! But at least everyone I saw in person got their gift on time! Ok, ok, so that isn’t saying much this year because we are all seeing less people than usual. These hats went to a few nieces. One of them even wore their hat for a little while (untilContinue reading “Merry Christmas-Some Gifts I Gave”

Quick Hats and Goofy Kids

It all started with me buying yarn to cope with grocery shopping. It was a big stressful trip and the yarn made it much easier to get through. I swear. It was chunky, and a deep purple, with flecks of just the right bits of white and brown. Such a comforting deep plum purple. I’llContinue reading “Quick Hats and Goofy Kids”

Sister Shawls: the Story Continues

Whenever I get tired of knitting the same hat again, I have started pulling out those ‘Sister Shawls’ I’ve been working on. I had developed a color pattern and a design pattern. I started with an all-over pattern and then a cable pattern and have continued in this way for the shawls. For this latestContinue reading “Sister Shawls: the Story Continues”

Testing the Waters

One of the reasons I’ve been choosing knitting over chores or keeping up with my blog is that I finally took a small step into selling some of my knit ware. During the beginning of reopening at the massage studio I work at, I came up with a few ideas for hats. The studio isContinue reading “Testing the Waters”
