Happy Fun Knitting Meme

I’ve really enjoyed reading everyone else’s responses to this meme so while I’m pretty sure I haven’t been tagged, I’m going to answer the questions. What is your all time favorite yarn to knit with? Hard one! Probably Koigu [PP]PM or KFI Cashmereno (sadly discontinued and I prefer it to the DB Cashmerino). Your favorite […]

Friday Friday Friday…

I had today off as a personal day so that I could work on organizing and cleaning my house. I still have some more to do along those lines, but I did organize my yarn and needles and hooks. Today I even picked up a vase to hold my Tunisian crochet hooks and my straight […]

Socks and Knitting

I never thought I wanted to learn how to knit. I knew how to crochet, knitting seemed too fiddley to me (two needles?!), and anything I wanted to make I could do with crochet. Plus, when I learned how to crochet around the age of 7, Mom told me that knitting was “too hard” and […]

Totally Tubular, Man!

tubular cast on US1 in Opal Ladybug For Socktoberfest, I decided that I would attempt a new cast on for cuff-down socks. After reading Grumperina and other people (like The Keyboard Biologist) love on the tubular cast on, I decided that I would try that one out, especially since I have been unhappy with my […]

Socks for Michael

4×2 ribbed socks on US4 in KFI Cashmereno My friend Michael from college talked to me about socks back in July or so this summer. He asked me if he could commission merino socks from me.
