Spring Sprang Sprung

FINALLY! I published this design. After months agonizing that the formatting and photos were JUST RIGHT, I said “Its time”. Even if the photos aren’t perfect.

Yarn Chicken

When I started the Alpha test phase of my Spring, Sprang, Sprung Cowl (small) I had little idea regarding the required yardage, merely a guesstimate. I could have taken careful weight measurements. I could have knit and unraveled a square and measured the length requirements for each yarn then extrapolated from there. Instead of doingContinue reading “Yarn Chicken”

New Yarn!!

This past week I’ve been working on the small version of the Spring, Sprang, Sprung Cowl.

Since that post, I’ve finished piecing 2 former unfinished projects together, creating a FRANKENTOP! I need to weave in the ends, but for all intents and purposes, the project is complete.Continue reading “My new WIP”
