Knit, Knit, Knit!

I’ve been doing a lot of knitting lately. Well, relative for me, anyway. I know people that knit like crazy… I’ll never keep up with them hehe.

But anyway, yes, knitting. I’ve compiled quite a stash! Good yarn is expensive but sooooooo worth it. These days I’m absolutely in love with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. If you’re on Ravelry you can check out my yarn stash. It’s small compared to some, but I have enough for plenty of small projects.

I just finished making my Blackberry Cowl. It’s not as soft as I had hoped but it’s pretty cozy. Now I’m working on a Chocolate Striped Scarf for Pod and have yarn to make one for myself. I finally finished the wrist warmers that go with the slouch hat that I made for Sonia for Christmas.. whoops.

Yes, I’m aware that most of those links go to Ravelry, so just in case you’re not a member, here’s some pictures of these projects. Yeah, the pink hat is mine, but Sonia’s looks just like it, but teal. The wrist warmers are the same color.

1. Blackberry Cowl Stitches (Pre Blocked), 2. Diagonal Chocolate Stripes, 3. Pink Hat, 4. Teal Yarn

I’ve got a few pairs of fingerless gloves in progress, too. I don’t know why I can’t just sit down and start the second glove after I finish the first one. I’ve got two pairs right now that only have one glove made haha. i almost started the third, but I should REALLY finishes these two first.

So that’s what I’ve been up to. Sewing is on hold right now; my sewing machine is driving m nuts.

What crafts or hobbies do you guys do?


Knitting, Wheeee!

So, I’ve been doing a lot of knitting lately. Nothing spectacular, since I’m just learning and all, but it’s been fun so far, except for the whole “having to buy yarn and needles in a million sizes” part… that kind of sucks heh. I have this scarf that I’ve been working on forEVER it seems, I think one day that will be done. I’m also working on these very basic wrist warmers. I just started knitting in the round, so I chose that pattern because it’s pretty easy. I’m going to make some nicer ones when I finish, though I must say… it’s really hard to motivate myself to knit the things when it’s 100 degrees outside haha.

So I found a few patterns that I am going to modify to fit Momoko, since I’ve got one of those coming in the mail. I made a top but I think it came out too wide. It’s hard to knit for something that isn’t right in front of you! Also, teeny tiny hats are hard.

I did finish this little Nano Warmer though! Heh. That yarn that I used is rather elastic-y so I needed to knit up something quick and easy to get used to the yarn. I just need to sew a button on it.

So! Any other knitters out there in my Blogosphere? Or crocheters? If you’re on Ravelry, add me to your friends!
