I did it. I actually, finally, really did it. I have finished all the things. Today is the first day in….well, I can’t even remember how many years, that I have had absolutely NO WIPs. There’s nothing on my hooks, nothing on my needles, nothing even blocking or waiting for ends to be sewn in. It’s all done. My socks … Continue reading →
You have seen this picture before, it’s the back of my lacey vest/cardi being blocked. I did this all with pins, and it took a LOT of them. I think I must have used at least 50 just on this one piece. The hardest part though, was making sure I placed the pins perfectly evenly along each edge, so that … Continue reading →
I know it’s been some time since I’ve posted, and I apologize for the long silence, but I’m still here! The holidays have left me with a case of “finish-itis,” where I feel like I must finish all the things. Right now. For the last couple of days I’ve been slogging away at my lacey vest/jacket thing, which has been … Continue reading →
I’ve had a lot of different projects going on in the last few weeks, some of which I can show you, and some of which I can’t (at least not yet!) Remember that lacey jacket / cardigan thing I was working on (and frogged twice)? It’s been slow going, but the back just came off the needles last night – here it … Continue reading →
Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links I was going to make a particular sweater pattern. I bought the yarn needed for it…but now I no longer like that pattern. Now I want to use that yarn to make this pattern instead. I plan to make it sleeveless and without the buttons so it’s more of a vest/jacket. I saw one of the projects … Continue reading →
Just like everyone else, I’m totally in love with this pattern! It’s easy to follow for my first ever knit sweater, and it works up really quickly.
I’m making the 6-12 month size, but am using a lighter weight yarn (Bernat Satin – love this yarn!). I did get gauge by using a larger needle (size 10 1/2, 6.5mm), so I’m not quite sure what size it will turn out to be. Lots of babies in my life right now though, so I’m sure it will fit someone!
I need to run out and buy some DPNs or circulars in this size before I can finish the sleeves. The closest I have right now is size 9 circulars, and that just won’t do. I’m hoping to get to the store at some point tomorrow so I can finish it tomorrow night. Hopefully I can find some really cute buttons too!
