Year of Projects 2022: Week 6

This week I've been focusing on a preview knit project, a large scarf/stole for Brooklyn Tweed, but unfortunately, I can't show any pictures of it until the preview week around the first of March.

Pattern is from Hunter Hammersen and yarn is from Long Dog Yarns, their Bounce Sock Yarn in A Shortcut to Mushrooms colorway, the first of their LOTR-themed club colors.

Year of Projects 2022: Week 1

I took advantage of a few days off to organize my proejcts for 2022 and start a few things: I cast on for a pair of plain vanilla socks, using a self-striping sock yarn from Desert Vista Dyeworks. The colorway is Halley's Comet, and it's alternating stripes of a dark blue and a lightly speckled… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 1

January 2022 Crafting Goals

I have the back finished and I'm working on the front right now. Both sleeves are done so once the… Continue reading January 2022 Crafting Goals
