FO Friday – Lineate

Sliding into the weekend with a finished piece: Lineate (Ravelry link). This pretty, slouch-style hat from Blue Bee Studios features simple colorwork and striped bands, and knits up surprisingly quickly using fingering-weight yarn.

WIP Wednesday: September 21, 2021

Here's what I'm currently working on that's not a Year of Project project: Lineate Hat (Ravelry link), pattern by Elizabeth Doherty of Bluebee Studios. I love her design sense and all the details she includes in a pattern, and this one is no exception.

September Plans

I normally would have a WIP Wednesday post here but since I've knit a whopping 6 rounds on my Bronwyn sweater since I've been focusing on finishing up the Foss sweater (which is done - more on that on Friday!), I thought I'd outline my plans for September here. As we edge closer to fall,… Continue reading September Plans
