First FO of the Year

I have a finished object to talk about. I needed (or wanted) a new winter hat. I had been wearing my Best Beret all through autumn but wanted something to cover my ears. I pulled out a pattern I had my eye on for quite some time. It’s the Elephant Hat from a knit wear […]

Holiday Round Up and Holiday Gift Knits

Long time no hear. I hope everyone had a lovely holiday. I decided to take a break after Blogmas. My holiday was lovely and a little extra quiet this year. Nothing special happened other than relaxing. The Mr had some extra time off to use up so we mainly spent it at home. On my […]

Blogmas Day 21: Holiday Socks

Holiday pile-o-socks fresh after a good washing. Here is a small stack of holiday socks that I’ve knitted over the years. Some were knit intentionally for the season and some were accidental. Meaning that I bought the yarn for some every day socks and discovered after they were knitted that they did in fact make […]

Blogmas Day 20: Finished socks

Here is a pair of finished socks that will be going to my Uncle Ed tomorrow. He had tried one of them on when I was still working on them, so I know that they fit. I hope he gets good use out of them. I don’t really follow a sock pattern but more of […]

Blogmas Day 19: Another gift finished

Another gift is finished. This is also a head band but this time it’s a modified version of the Cecilia Baby Headband . I had made this headband before for myself after seeing a ravelry user post their modified version. The major change they did was the stitch count and that was all they posted. […]

Blogmas Day 17: Holiday project update

The Sugar Headband is finished. I really like how it turned out. So much so that I want to make one for myself. This one is for my mother. She prefers headbands over hats. I think this will be stylish enough to wear with her outer wear. Again the pattern is Sugar Headband designed by […]

Blogmas Day 15: Tis that time of year

While looking through old photos to check and see what yarns I dyed up for past holiday gifts I realised that I seem to have a pattern of taking the last ten days before Xmas to dye and knit a rather large gift. This year is no different. We’ll see how this year’s gift goes. […]

Blogmas Day 13: Pug face and thorns

As it was a work day here is another glimpse at the tree. Our super silly pug pipe cleaner ornament. It’s a simple little ornament but we love it. I purchased it years ago from Etsy. You can find a lot of homemade gems there.

Blogmas Day 12: Handmade ornaments

Here are a few of my favorite ornaments that I have made over the years. Acorn Twins and the mushroom were ones I made for local holiday shows that I sold years ago. The sock was made the year I discovered that I actually enjoyed knitting socks. I made several and gave most of them […]

Blogmas Day 11: Gift project day

Besides a sore arm from our booster shots yesterday, both The Mr and I were actually feeling pretty good. Though I had anticipated it being a down day, despite feeling pretty good I decided to camp out under the kotatsu and work on some of my gift projects. For most of the day I worked […]
