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
I forgot to take a photo of the $1 gift; it was a cream version of the twist headband in this post. The beret is this pattern, and I love it as it looks like a real beret instead of a beanie when worn. I’m going to use it as a base for all other… Continue reading Christmas Knitting

Recently, I have given the same attention for this stack although I will probably speed up the Patricia St. John book (Rainbow Garden; you can… Continue reading Yarn Along

I have been “working” on the shawlette/scarf for over a month and the headband for weeks. (I am linking up here).
I knitted many things over the last fivish months. It makes me feel so accomplished to cram them all into one post . . . so it looks like I have been more industrious than I actually have (I actually am now working on becoming fairly industrious in knitting; this post marks some of the… Continue reading Crazy Knitting Lady
