We are getting a snow storm tomorrow and I just realized that the kiddo didn’t have any gloves. Gloves are Improptues (Rav. link) knit on size 9 to fit a 4-5 year old’s hands.

What I ended up purchasing yesterday. 

Jojoland’s Melody Superwash in Blossom Garden. To be made into Suit Yourself Socks with this as the inspiration.

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.

Perfect for today


Adding the source because this is a fucking awesome and free lap blanket pattern. Plus, I love Cascade’s Eco Wool.

COMPANION CUBE!
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)

The intrepid fox is the pattern that seems to match that adorable fox. Also sold on Etsy as a kit $40.

I’d really rather us DK or bulkier yarn for this without it becoming huge.

I posted this hat yesterday, but here it is 100% finished. Cute pattern, an earflap hat is an earflap hat. I wasn’t a fan of the yarn.

Warm Up Hat in Caron Sheep(ish) yarn. The worst part of this project is the blanket stitch edging, but it makes it look super cute!
