Finished in 2013

I had the perception that I didn’t finish much in 2013. Imagine my surprise when I browsed my Ravelry projects and discovered 18 projects completed in 2013. Not too shabby. Sure, a few of them were more learning experiences (the inkle loom projects) but I did complete them. (1) adult sweater, (1) child sweater, (7) […]

Except I mistakenly warped alternating 4 of each color instead of 2 of each color. So I wove a […]

My Skelf

For holidays last year, Mom sent me Ysolda Teague’s Little Red in the City. While reading the book, I felt a surprising urge to knit Skelf, a mostly reverse stockinette pullover with some fun details. I had never considered knitting the sweater before that point, despite mulling over the projects in advance. Skelf I pulled […]

Bella’s Mittens

cushy! I’ve always liked the look of these mittens. I finally decided that I needed a pair of big mittens and pulled some well-aged yarn from the stash (pre-wordpress blog days!) and knit them up. Free Pattern: Bella’s Mittens [ravelry] I used almost two entire skeins of Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Bulky and knit them […]
