The one where the blogger realizes she hasn’t blogged in ages and shows off a bunch of FOs {Friday’s FO}}

I had no idea that the last time I posted on this blog was last January. Oops! I really didn’t mean to forget. And I really have been busy. I finished the blanket.

11 months in the making. 21 balls of yarn. 147 rows. 254 stitches a row. It is done. #crochet

I used the leftovers to make a bag, and I LOVE IT!

I have also been busy making inserts for my fauxdori and journaling like crazy.

I am super happy with the inserts I made. #travelersnotebook

And I got cornered into sewing a dress for my daughter. She was sooo happy with it.

And I just finished reading this book and I love it. I already tidied up the socks and unmentionables and the difference is Crazy!

Another week, another hat. {Friday’s FO}

Yup. It is done. And I have already cast another one

Oops I did it again {Wednesday’s WIP}

I am making another sockhead hat on larger needles so hopefully it will fit this time.

What is in your knitting notion toolkit?

Knitting notions

What is in your knitting notions kit? I keep all of my notions in a big tin, because I love them and it is easier to access whatever you need compared to a zippered case.  I have a needle book where I keep most of the needles I use for weaving in the ends, I also have a set of three larger ones I use with bulky and super bulky yarn, they’re the ones in the tin.  Stitch markers, needle threaders, a thimble, a pair of scissors, two measuring tapes and my stitch counter.  There is also a few magnetic bookmarks that I use to mark printed patterns or my place in my stitch pattern books.  I like having everything I need in the same place.

 

It is all trial and error {Saturday Sketchbook}

It is all just trial and error, you try stuff, you make mistakes, then you try again.

I was knitting socks with this yarn. But it just wasn’t working for me. So I frogged them and started a sockhead hat. I think it is going to be too tight. Either my head is bigger than average or I knit much tighter than average. Oh well the 6 year old really wants it.
