Free (Not A)Pattern: C2C Cupcake Throw

As of this morning, I officially have NO active projects. Old WIPS don’t count, by the way. I finished my C2C blanket for a friend, and it looks AWESOME! The only thing left to do is wash it and mail it! Since learning the C2C technique back in April, this is my 3rd throw/blanket. ItContinue reading “Free (Not A)Pattern: C2C Cupcake Throw”

The Unassuming Hat

Have you ever found a pattern that you don’t get bored knitting? Usually I dislike making the same thing twice (or more) but honestly, I’ve knit this hat 4 times already. I have plans to make at least 2 more (similar to the white long brim one). The first two knits of this hat IContinue reading “The Unassuming Hat”

Crossing the Finish Line

FINALLY, PlumBody to Love is off the needles! Firstly, its impossible to take a good picture of a sweater on yourself to showcase the best attributes. Secondly, it fits about how I expected, although the acrylic yarn is a bit stiff still (still need to wash it up). Thirdly, its SEAMLESS!!! I succeeded in myContinue reading “Crossing the Finish Line”

Free Project: Yarn-on-a-Stick

I’m engaged in a constant quest to use up odds and ends of yarn and subtly get my kids into fiber arts. We read “10-Minute Yarn Projects” by Sarah L. Schutte and were inspired by the “Stick To It!” project. We accessed the e-book via my daughter’s elementary school library and their partnership with Capstone.Continue reading “Free Project: Yarn-on-a-Stick”

Deep Winter Pattern

After what feels like an ETERNITY I was finally able to complete the editing and formatting for my latest pattern! The biggest hurdle in moving from designing-my-own-projects to Publishing-my-own-Designs has been the FORMATTING. Frijoles. SO MUCH FORMATTING. I’ve templated as much as I can. But just the line-by-line numbers adding up properly, centered, justified, andContinue reading “Deep Winter Pattern”

Furls Streamline Wood Hook Meets the Easiest Hat Ever

I’ve been hearing the hype around the Furls hooks for a while. To be honest, I have enough redundant hooks and spending money on hooks I already own seems a bit wasteful. I have a ton of the Clover soft touch ergonomic hooks in the sizes I use most, and they work just fine forContinue reading “Furls Streamline Wood Hook Meets the Easiest Hat Ever”
