Finished a hat last night. Fastest one I have ever knit, took about 3 hours total. WIN.

My second “Big Bad Baby Blanket” is finished, well almost. It needs some blocking which will be done tomorrow. This time around it felt like forever.
I am hoping that my friend/tattoo artist and his wife like the color. The brand of yarn I picked for this project doesn’t come in a large variety of colors and I don’t like using obvious baby colors. Since fall is coming this dark grey just jumped out at me and made me feel cozy. 
It is knit with Caron Simply Soft in charcoal. I usually don’t care for this yarn but when it comes to baby knits, it is washable and if it stretches out from use it will shrink back to size when it is washed. Washable is super important! If I make another one I am going to look into using a different yarn, maybe from KnitPicks or something. 


On to the next project!

Still not convinced it’s not a fire hazard.

Waiting for purse handles from Hong Kong - taking forever! SO large purses are on hold for the moment. I am working on a little pouch/accessory bag to keep me busy while I am waiting. I like how it is turning out but I think my gauge is a little tighter than it should be. Hopefully the finished product turns out. 
I have a long list of project ideas I want to try out for my esty shop - so I am going to be a pretty busy girl this summer. I hope I can make a few more sales when I put some summery things up. 
Back to the needles and How I Met Your Mother. (just started this a few days ago on netflix - I was missing out!)

(Also, dog feet are cute).

Want a lesson in patience? Hand wind your hand dyed yarn into a ball. 
That is all. :)


I love my nostepinne! It is perfect for when you buy hanks of yarn on a road trip.

no makeup and ready for bed, but I don’t want to wait until tomorrow afternoon to post a picture of the finally finished chunky ribbed cowl. It is long and can be wrapped twice. I can’t wait to do a better photo session and post this on etsy.

bulky cowl or mini skirt?

I probably should have casted off 5 inches ago, but I kind of want to see what it will look like if I use all of the grey yarn. Maybe it could be a cowl-ish/shoulder wrap? Or used as a hood?

I have been wanting a nice warm and cozy sweater dress to wear around the house during the winter months and I have had the hardest time finding one that I really like that I would buy….maybe I should consider knitting my own?

A brooch is a really cute and fun way to make a cowl or scarf look extra dressy.
