I finished the necklace! It’s a nice quick project, even with all that beading slowing it down. The beading at the ends of the shorter sections got in the way of the wrapping a bit, the pattern had a wider band of wrapping around each edge, but it worked out. If I were to make… Continue reading FO Friday: Pirra Necklace
I finished my qiviut cowl! It was my New Year’s Eve cast on, so only took about a month. Well, the knitting didn’t take that long, but it always takes me a while to get around to blocking things. With my new schedule of mostly doing finishing work on Tuesdays, I just had such a… Continue reading FO Friday: Qiviut Cowl
As promised, my first FO of the year was the merino spin that just needed a wash. I used two braids of Fancy Fibers 19 Micron Merino that I got at the local Weaver’s Guild sale. One colorway was called Lollipop and was mostly reds/blues/purples, and the other colorway was called Autumn Leaves and looked… Continue reading FO Friday: Merino Spin
The gnome is finished! I actually finished it last week, but didn’t photograph it in time for the FO Friday post. Besides, there was a sweater to show off. I modified the pattern slightly in that I did not hold the fingering weight yarn double. I first attempted the nose while tired and mindlessly followed… Continue reading FO Friday: Gnome
Finally, a sweater that actually fits! This is my third sweater for me and it’s the first one I’ve been actually happy with. It is the Campside Pullover by Alicia Plummer. I started it back in February and I sort of knitted it twice. I made a gauge swatch and everything, but when it came… Continue reading FO Friday: Campside Pullover
I finished the combo drafted primary colors yarn! It’s a true 3 ply, I had three bobbins so I just went for it. It was my first try at 3 ply yarn and it went smoothly. Also my first try at combo drafting, which took a bit to get the hang of. It means taking… Continue reading FO Friday: Primary Colors
I knit up a quick bulky weight gradient hat. I needed something simple to knit during Zoom calls but this only took two calls to make, lol. Then I started on that simple shawl in my handspun, which should take longer. The hat is made from Canon Hand Dyes Traveler Bulky and the pattern is… Continue reading FO Friday: Gradient Hat
I finished a pumpkin last week! A little late for Halloween as I was really pushing to get the stocking done, but it’s still good as a fall decoration, right? The pattern is Cute Little Pumpkin Patch by Norman Schwarze. The yarn is a self striping partial skein. I believe it’s Fishknits Yarn Boot Strap. The stem is just a… Continue reading FO Friday: Pumpkin
Spoilers below for the leethal Adventure Knit-a-Long! My color pairing was inspired by a botched bleach attempt on my hair. I was trying to bleach more of my hair so it could all be purple instead of just a couple of streaks. We really didn’t know what we were doing and it turned out very… Continue reading FO Friday: Adventure Knit-a-Long!
I finally found some black seed beads and some beading needles so I could finish the needle felted penguin! Here’s how I made the eyes: Materials: two black seed beads black thread beading needles I put the needle through one side of the head where the eye should be and made sure… Continue reading FO Friday: Penguin!
