Textured Tonal Triangle Scarf Free Pattern

Another from the archives. Here is the pattern from this blog post (I think if I kept that photo, it is probably un-rescue-able on my old computer). Of the few knitting things I’ve altered or come up with, this is the simplest. I really wish I’d written out in an understandable way the striped baby… Continue reading Textured Tonal Triangle Scarf Free Pattern

Yarn Along April 2019

Knitting another baby blanket with KnitPicks Shine Worsted (of course), a variation on this well-loved pattern. I’m on the second book of All-of-A-Kind Family, although I’m obviously much above the intended age range (I don’t have much mental space at the moment, and I like to read books I feel I “missed out” on in… Continue reading Yarn Along April 2019

Yarn Along and Crafting On Link Up

I linking up with Ginny’s Yarn Along and Nicole’s Crafting On. I have, of course, more than one book going (and 2 more projects on the needles although I’ve been focusing on this one for awhile), but this was the prettiest arrangement. The blanket is Purl Soho’s Mosaic Blanket which is free and actually very… Continue reading Yarn Along and Crafting On Link Up

Yarn Along May

I finished the green book, but I don’t feel like taking another photo. I haven’t made much progress on the either the books or the knitting since I took this. And of course I have more projects on the needles. I’m linking up here for Ginny’s Monthly Yarn Along.

An Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief made with copper colored Knit Picks Diadem for a friend with an autumn birthday. Matching baby and toddler knit dresses for the same friend’s little girls. I used a cardigan pattern as a loose guide, but I also was figuring things out as I went along (hence why… Continue reading What I’ve Knit Recently

Discovering Knitting: How I Became a Knitter

I don’t remember exactly my age when my grandmothers first introduced me to knitting, but I know I wasn’t near a teen. One grandmother gave me a family knitting basket and needles and also a learn-to-knit set. My other grandmother gave me my first lesson . . . which didn’t stick. A lady at my childhood church… Continue reading Discovering Knitting: How I Became a Knitter

Yarn Along: Entrelac and A Little Taste of Poison

I am linking up again after a period of laziness here at Ginny Sheller’s Yarn Along. You will have to forgive the iphone photo. And the junk at the bottom; my room will never stay clean. Since I am knitting two items and reading two books (just kidding, I have several books and knitting projects started,… Continue reading Yarn Along: Entrelac and A Little Taste of Poison

Yarn Along

I am linking up here again. I actually finished this book yesterday. Wow. Read it, but prepare to feel the horror. The descriptions are not graphic, but between the style of writing, cruelties mentioned, my previous WWII college classes, and my imagination, I really got the feel of cringing fear. I still don’t think it… Continue reading Yarn Along
