Yarn Along-  and the Winner is…

Yarn Along- and the Winner is…

Once again I’m linking up with Ginny’s yarn along. I’ve been making good progress on my bertrand louis cowl and am continuing to love the look of the stitches and the dimensionality that’s coming with the half brioche pattern. It feels wonderful too. I think I’m pretty close to done. I’m supposed to knit it … Continue reading

Yarn Along- I won… and you can too!

Yarn Along- I won… and you can too!

Last week I left a comment on a blog as part of a yarn and pattern giveaway. And, guess what?!?  I won!  I just got my Barking Dog yarn today, and it’s a really cool spring-like green that I love! So, now l have a new yarn to use for next week’s yarn along with Ginny. … Continue reading

Yarn Along: Felted hearts

Yarn Along: Felted hearts

This week as my contribution to Ginny’s yarn along, I am showing off my cute little felted hearts I made. I’m excited about these since my last few weeks of knitting haven’t turned out final products with which I’ve been very happy. These hearts, though, are adorable and were really fun to make. The pattern … Continue reading

Yarn along and free knitting patterns for hearts

Here we are again, the weekly yarn along with Small Things. I’ve finally gotten finished with my Honey cowl (pattern available here).  I’ve been knitting like a crazy lady, determined that I would not have yet another week devoid of a finished project to show on the yarn along.  Actually, as of this writing, I … Continue reading

Yarn Along: Free & Easy… Two words I like to see!

Yarn Along: Free & Easy… Two words I like to see!

I’m finding that being a part of Ginny’s Wednesday yarn alongs has made me far more productive in my knitting.  I like the accountability that comes with sharing pictures of my knitting progress. I’m currently procrastinating doing what I know I need to on my fingerless gloves (ripping back), so have been getting lots done … Continue reading

Washcloths and Failures

Washcloths and Failures

This is my update on the yarn along.  It’s also a chance to tell you I’m making a new “super easy, use up some yarn you probably already have” pattern.  Any guesses which is the washcloth and which is the failure?  Right. I was all happy and possibly a bit cocky last week about how … Continue reading

I fell off the wagon…

I fell off the wagon…

I made it eight days into 2012 before I fell off the wagon. No, not the liquor wagon or the food wagon (food cart?)… Actually, I don’t know the origin of that phrase “off the wagon,” so if I’m mixing metaphors as I go on, sorry about that. I generally have a pretty good grasp … Continue reading

Yarn along update (ravelry red rocks!)

Yarn along update (ravelry red rocks!)

Since posting about the Small Things’ yarn along last on December 28th, I’ve gotten one fingerless mitten knitted, but not seamed up and I’m about an inch into the knitting of the second mitten.  I’m continuing to LOVE the Malabrigo Rios Yarns.  I’ve always been a fan of red, but the Ravelry Red color is wonderful, … Continue reading
