What I ended up purchasing yesterday.
Stonehedge Fiber Mill DK in Granite. To be made into awesome mitts for my husband. I’m working on a pattern based off of Gandalf’s mitts from The Hobbit.
Loopy Ewe Solid series in Ivory. I’m planning on mixing this up with some leftover Noro (sock) to make myself colorful mitts. Possibly Snowflake Fingerless Gloves, Norwegian Snail Mittens, or Selbu Sea Horse Mittens.
I ended up still having to pay $1.25 but meh.
Okay so this post is about two months late but I’m finally getting around to posting it so you all can see: I finished making Companion Cube! Completely custom hand made, no pattern, many mistakes, but lots and lots of TLC. This beauty is for my bestest friend to be her companion while I am in Japan. It was largely knit in many stages though the hearts and circles are crocheted. I learned how to crochet doing this project. And it is stuffed with poly-fill so it’s super huggable but maintains it’s shape. Because I didn’t have a pattern it took me over a year to make and I experimented a lot as I was going along. There are definitely things I would do differently, as I learned along the way, but it is one of a kind. Please tell me your thoughts. Thank you :)
(also that is me in case anyone’s curious :P)
Knit one row a day for a year, matching the yarn color to the color of the sky that day.
MOTHERFUCK THAT’S COOL
dude I’m irish I could just buy a grey scarf
I STILL REALLY WANT TO DO THIS except make a blanket instead of a scarf.
Someone throw money at me so I can buy yarn.
I see this all the time and every time I see it, I think “Am I the only one that thinks this would be a really short scarf?” If I were to ever do a project like this (and let’s be honest, I might start but I’ll forget about it three days in), I would probably knit the scarf length-wise over a span of a season (probably fall) and focus on sunsets so I get some good reds and oranges in there.
