First attempt at a little stuffy. A bit rough in spots and my joining is horrible but in the end it turned out alright!
I warned you. Sock knitting blog. A repeat of the last pair but in a different colourway.
Apologies to anyone who follows me, but apparently this is now a sock knitting blog…
I’ve been wanting to try a reinforced slip stitch bottom for a pair of socks for a while now, and after some experimentation I think I’ve got it! The result is thick and squishy and I hope quite durable.
Victory is mine! These socks are my first completed knitting project since the Before Time, and you know what? I still got it.
A little custom cable design that created a sock that’s just a tad too small…
A little project for a new arrival.
Well, yet another long blogging hiatus. So what’s so important that I would take the time to author yet another scintillating installment? Why, a knitting project, of course!
A little something for the Movember fundraising drive, this is a custom design that I came up with by taking the game graphics and converting them to a pattern.
Lovely open-work baby blanket I did in the round. I believe this is the first piece I’ve done in this style and it turned out great!
A piece for the first arrival of a friend and colleague. The yarn colour in this piece is fantastic and the pattern knitted up beautifully!
One of my earlier custom designs, this pattern uses basic twisted stitches and eyelets to create a fun little spiral pattern.
Yet another crack at this cable scarf pattern, it knits up thick and chunky and really shows off the shine of this yarn.
Yet another early sock attempt, this is one of those early pairs that taught me never to use straight merino for socks…
This is a bit of an experiment, altering a traditional toe-up toe to create a separate space for the big toe. And it worked out alright!
Another crack at this pattern and one of my earlier sock attempts as I got the hang of things.
Using Thuja with some gifted Raven Frog yarn, this time Alder Bark, to knit up another pair of warm, comfy, and very fragile socks…
It’s been a while, but I assume this is my first pair of socks after previously trying and failing to make socks…
Another cabled scarf using Here and There Cables, this time for my mom!
Here and There again, this time for Michelle in a nice creamy yellow!
A fairly traditional pattern on this afghan, the yarn lends itself well to this simple cable-and-scallop design.
A custom Pacman graphic design in Intarsia. This thing is a pain to knit, what with all the colour changes, but it looks great!
