I’ve come a long way as a knitter in the past year. I’ve gotten better overall, and have learned a number of valuable lessons.
Everybody loves yarn! But, not all fibers are created equal. Here are some thoughts on why I love merino, and don’t love alpaca so much.
My Mondo Cable Hood is complete! Despite the disagreements that the pattern and I had, I very much love the finished hood. It has great buttons, too!
This week, I’ve got some Charade socks on needles, and I’m almost done with my Mondo hood, and *gasp*, The Sweater I (mostly) No Longer Speak Of™.
My first pair of socks are done! I used the Spot Check stitch pattern and the Lifestyle Toe Up formula to make them, and I’m pretty proud of the results.
Can I just say that I love the Wabbit Season hat? It’s so clever, with it’s little ear flap pockets and everything! And, for the record, pompoms make me crazy happy!
I’m making a sweater, because we haven’t already seen me fail at large item knitting! This one is going much more smoothly though, and I actually have hope of finishing it in the near-ish future.
I’ve finally finished my Prickly gloves, and they rule, despite the fact that they’re uneven because of the difference in my skill between when I started and finished them.
