WIP Wednesday

I have a couple of fibery endeavours too ok share with you in this week’s WIP Wednesday post. My fibre friend, Amanda of Red Island Fibre, surprised me with a luscious batt of llama fibre recently. This fibre comes from Maple River Farm in Nova Scotia that raises llamas for fibre, fun, and fertilizer. IContinue reading “WIP Wednesday”

Maker’s Dozen in 2022

In January of 2022, I saw an Instagram post by @Hadabashery suggesting a MAL called the Maker’s Dozen. The guidelines were simple …. Use existing stash to complete 12 projects throughout the year and/or finishing long neglected WIPs. Sounds like a great plan, right? In my case, it was a huge success. I ended upContinue reading “Maker’s Dozen in 2022”

Ravishing

Guess who has some snazzy new socks? I put the finishing touches (aka sewed in the ends and blocked) my Ravishing Socks by Nancy Wheeler and I couldn’t be happier! The pattern was (as all of Nancy’s patterns are) very well written, easy to follow, and the stitch pattern was quickly memorizable. There were aContinue reading “Ravishing”

New Pattern Release: Iditarod Mittens

Inspiration is a funny thing. I’ve wanted to create this pattern since I released the matching hat and cowl patterns several years ago but just never got around to it. When I popped in to visit Fleece and Harmony and Ken brought Wildwinds 2 ply out for me to see and squish I knew exactlyContinue reading “New Pattern Release: Iditarod Mittens”

WIP Wednesday – Exploits Valley Hap

This week I am over-the-moon excited to share with you the progress on my Exploits Valley Hap by Jennifer Beale. I have finished joining all three centre contrast color lace panels with their main color lace panels. To me, when it is spread out, it looks like a Blue Morpho butterfly 🦋 All the outsideContinue reading “WIP Wednesday – Exploits Valley Hap”

WIP Wednesday – Exploits Valley Hap

I’ve been inspired to do a little work work on a long standing work-in-progress this week. I started working on the beautiful Exploits Valley Hap by Jennifer Beale in December of 2020 and have been savouring the project ever since. I knit a few rows and then put it away for a bit and thenContinue reading “WIP Wednesday – Exploits Valley Hap”

The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men

Sometimes, even with careful planning, color choices, ect. our crafting plans flop. I decided to spin for a Metamorphic pullover and started my spinning with Tour de Fleece in July. I chose beautiful colors …. colors which I felt complimented each other, allowed for a bit of a pop, and still remained within my comfortContinue reading “The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men”

Finished Object Friday – Wild Posy, Verso, and a Spin

I had the pleasure of accomplishing some dream knitting this week. Wild Posy Luna by Melody Hoffman has been on my to-knit list since late autumn 2021. I fell completely in love with the textured yoke and knew that I needed to add this pullover to my hand knits collection. I chose Briggs & LittleContinue reading “Finished Object Friday – Wild Posy, Verso, and a Spin”

Thick and Quick Álafosslopi Mittens

Sometimes, lost mittens happen. Because of this, I’ve created speedy pattern in bulky weight yarn to help remedy the lost mitten situation. I’ve used this pattern a * just a few * times myself while reciting a modified version of The Three Little Knittens but subbing “kittens” for “teenagers” and “you shall have no pie”Continue reading “Thick and Quick Álafosslopi Mittens”

Daydreaming of Faery Spaces

With temperatures dipping below freezing and the sun staying abed until approximately 7:20 AM, winters is definitely marching toward us. We were out hiking early, well before sunrise, and accidentally startled a huge flock of Canada Geese with our headlamps. There was such a large number of them taking to flight that it sounded likeContinue reading “Daydreaming of Faery Spaces”
