Shawl of my dreams

Shawl of my dreams

I’m no stranger to buying yarn to enhance my stash and store for future projects. Recently it came to my attention that my under-the-bed storage system is getting overly full. Thus, it seems time to make a giant shawl. I was recently admiring some posts about...

First, it’s my 36th birthday and if you use the code HAPPY36 in the next week, you can get any of my designs for 36% off. Eventually I’ll get so old I’m going to be giving them away for free! Now, for the knitting content… I’m working...
Aperture, now with a gradient!

Aperture, now with a gradient!

As mentioned previously, I adore my first Aperture shawl. It continues to be my go-to for taking to my office while I avoid shivering under the air conditioning vent. I knew I would probably make another, but didn’t think it would happen so soon. When packing...
Welcome to the frog pond

Welcome to the frog pond

Sometimes you finish a knit and it’s just disappointing. That’s how I feel about Over the Top Top. Don’t get me wrong, it’s adorable in the sample photos, and perhaps could be with some alterations, but the moment I tried it on I had a feeling...
Aperture in Denver

Aperture in Denver

I have finished objects to share, and haven’t been able to keep up with the official posed, taken by my SLR camera, and processed in Lightroom photographs I usually aim for. Instead, I went on a little vacation and with Matt’s help I took a bunch of...
Ah, linen

Ah, linen

When I was seeking out summer tops I fell in love with a few and bundled them in my Ravelry favorites. I was attracted to Astonish Top because it’s made from linen and cotton (it’s freaking hot in Arkansas), and also has a relaxed and breezy look. It also...

I’m back at working on Aperture Shawl after a break to solely focus on Over the Top Top. While Over the Top Top (what a mouthful) is blocking, Aperture Shawl has moved back into my field of attention. I really enjoy working on this and can’t wait to see...
The backup plan

The backup plan

My backup yarn is in place. In my last post I discussed worries about not having enough yarn for my project and ordering a solid version of the color I’m using (Dream in Color Smooshy in the kettle dyed Melon Bomb). As shown, the Melon Bomb I ordered is not the...
Fast and loose

Fast and loose

I’m in love with this color. The yarn is Dream in Color Smooshy and this color is Melon Bomb. My first garment for Zooey was made with this colorway in the Starry DIC base, back when it had actual strands of silver in the yarn. I’ve loved the color since....
Rainbow baby

Rainbow baby

This is one of the prettiest baby blankets I’ve ever made. This is a simple Pinwheel Blanket and this time I used a TFA Palettes kit in Camaro. I gave the mom-to-be some choices and this is the combination she picked. I wasn’t totally in love with...
