Yarn Along:  Results

Yarn Along: Results

Here we are again. The yarn along. But this week is different. You see this week I did something unusual. This past week week I started and… wait for it….. finished a project. Yes, folks, that’s right. I actually completed my hat from last week. I even like how it turned out. Take a look. … Continue reading

Yarn Along:  Quick Knit Hat

Yarn Along: Quick Knit Hat

We went on a drive yesterday, so I worked on a new hat. I’m hoping to get it done today so I can wear it tomorrow when it’s supposed to be cold. The yarn I’m using is by Malabrigo and the color is lettuce. It reminds me of a springy moss color. So far I’m … Continue reading

Arrgggghhhh….

Arrgggghhhh….

So, this is NOT what I was planning on writing for my weekly Yarn along post. I decided to post it, though, as a reminder to those of you who know better (like me) and as a warning to those of you who don’t know any better. Any guesses what this is a picture of? … Continue reading

Yarn along:  Come on, Spring!

Yarn along: Come on, Spring!

This week’s Yarn along is kind of fragmented for me. I have a number of things that I am finishing. All that stuff from last week… it had tails. Yep, I hid the tails and pretended they were totally done. Now I need to weave them in. Maybe I’ll finish that tonight while I watch … Continue reading

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

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

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

Yarn Along

I’ve never done a yarn along before, but I found this one on the Small Things site and thought it was a fun idea.  I especially thought so because of the timing.  You see, this year for Christmas I asked my husband to forego buying me gifts and instead allow me to “shop” my stash and … Continue reading

Free and Easy Chunky Cowl Pattern

Free and Easy Chunky Cowl Pattern

I’m kinda addicted to cowls lately.  It all started last year after a trip to KnitPurl in Portland.  I made a cowl (NOT the one pictured) that I absolutely love with a yarn that’s wonderful.  The pattern I used for that cowl (again, NOT this one) is called the Tuesday Night Cowl by Susan Lawrence … Continue reading
