Year of Projects 2022: Week 12

Lots of finished things to talk about this week. I can finally share the preview knit I was working on for one of Brooklyn Tweed's spring design groups: Oiva. This is a VERY generous scarf - I'd even call it more like a narrow stole - with tons of texture. The pattern includes a textured… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 12

Original fiber: A set of four 1-oz batts from KCKnits Etsy shop (which appears to be closed indefinitely) in the way-back stash machine (2017? maybe earlier?). These were… Continue reading FO Friday: Princezna Hyacinta Handspun

This week, I finished up sock #1 of the By Naughty Design pair. 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.

A long and really busy work and life week here, but I did get a fair amount done on some YOP pieces: I finished up the pair of Desert Vista Dyeworks self-striping socks. The yarn is DVD's Viso sock yarn base in the color Halley's Comet. I added in a pale pink mini-skein from stash… Continue reading Year of Projects: Week 3
