I swear I know how to knit more than slippers. I’ve just been on a slipper palooza of knitting lately. Here’s my latest pair. These ones are for me. 🙂
Super Simple Garter Slippers
I made a super simple garter slipper today. Size 8 needles, worsted weight yarn, 100% wool. (Don’t look at my loose ends, I’ll sew them in later). I think I may crochet around the ankle for added support. Nothing special, but it is my first ever slipper. Once I get good at making these I…
WIP (Work in Progress)
Wound a ball for my next pair of socks. I have three colorways I plan on dyeing this week. Urban Dream will definitely be one of them. I can’t wait to show you how this colorway looks knit up. ❤
Next Knitting Project
My next pair of socks (some assembly required). Cleaned the shop out of Urban Dream. Will definitely be dyeing this colorway again. It’s gorgeous!
Today I had to rip back about 4″ of work on my daughter’s poncho. The first row I knit with increases (M1) I used my right needle to pick up the bar between stitches to make a new stitch when I should have used my left needle instead and consequently it left holes every five…
My View This Morning
While the snow is beautiful, it can play havoc on shipping to and fro. I received an email from UPS and apparently my yarn bases won’t arrive until Monday. Sigh. In the meantime I have orders to pack and ship and some knitting to get finished. Knitting time is always a favorite time. I ordered…
Finally Finished the “Sparkly Socks”
She calls them her sparkly socks because they’re dyed on my glimmer base. I realized after I took this picture that her sock was on crooked. It was super sunny and I just didn’t see it. Oh well, at least the socks from my Bouquet colorway are finally finished! She hasn’t taken them off since….
Reyna Shawl Progress
I haven’t worked on my Reyna shawl for a while but needed a break from socks so I picked it back up. I think I also had a mental block about this color combo. I just wasn’t sure I liked it. Now that I’ve laid down some tracks I am really digging how this is…
A customer knit these gloves out of my Oberon colorway on a fingering weight yarn. Aren’t they beautiful?
Knitting Song by the Doozers – Fraggle Rock
I grew up watching Fraggle Rock. This song is great!
One Down, One to Go
Finished a sock for my littlest. Isn’t it cute? Yarn is my own hand-dyed in my Bouquet colorway (check the shop – link above – for availability). Pattern is a franken-sock. Part Susan B Anderson, Tin Can Knits and the Rose City Rollers pattern.
Rose City Rollers
Finished my ankle socks and LOVE how they turned out! They fit perfectly and feel amazing. There’s something so luxurious about hand knit socks made exactly for your own foot. The yarn is mine own and the colorway is called “Tequila Sunrise”. There’s only one skein left on my standard sock base (superwash merino/nylon) in…
My Fiber-Filled Week
I realize that I post a lot about my yarn-making to places like Instagram and Facebook, but I always forget to post here to my website. I will try harder to do better moving forward. Thank you for your patience while I find my site-based rhythm. 🙂 This week has been full of fibery goodness…
Dueling Reyna Shawls
I have twin fifth graders. My boys are sweethearts, but they’re also full of energy and not exactly the easiest students for their teachers. Instead of a gift card or wine as a gratitude gift, this year I decided to knit them Reyna shawls instead. School for us ends at the end of May so…
