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 24: Christmas Eve

This will be a sleepy post since I’m up a bit past my bed time. Today was very busy after all. We did need to go out after all but not for much and luckily everything was close. I finished our wrapping and got some cooking done. Later in the afternoon we went to my […]

Blogmas Day 23: Christmas eve eve

Today was a rather busy but unfestive day. Instead of working on socks all day I had to make a small batch of masks to sell at our neighborhood cafe, Koba Cafe. Since the early part of the pandemic I have been making small batches of mask to sell. Aadam the owner of the cafe […]

Blogmas Day 22: Miss Zee’s new bed

Sorry for the not so great quality phone photo (despite having an iphone 13) but it was too cute not to talk about. For the past two weeks, Miss Zee has decided that the new tree skirt is now her new bed. She has a bed of her own and has free rein of the […]

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 18: Walking with Miss Zee

Not too much of a post this evening. Spent most of the day working on holiday projects but not getting much done… or at least it felt like it. Here is Miss Zee in her adorable red hoodie resting her chin on a mini bridge we cross on some of our morning walks. For reasons […]

Blogmas Day 16: A walk through the neighborhood

The neighborhood has out done itself this year. This was our first view on our walk this evening. Lights everywhere. Some houses have animated light on the sidewalks (which Miss Zee does not care for). So many lovely displays. I feel every year they can’t decorate anymore and then we have this neighbor… The entire […]
