Since I’ve been stuck working at home due to further horrible weather, and since I’ve apparently gotten myself deep into the forest that is knitting podcasts, I’ve decided to do like four projects at once. This is significant, as I'm very much a monogamous knitter, generally speaking.
This, combined with me being inspired to use up my stash yarn in a somewhat methodical fashion (because I do everything in a methodical fashion) and start with what’s been sitting around the l
I just got a really big bug to learn yarn dyeing so I can make character/other things inspired colourways for my fandoms that don’t have yarn colourways *cough*DragonAge*cough* (curse my sudden craving for Anders inspired yarns.
I have no knowledge of how to do this, very little time, probably no skill in actually creating variegations, and absolutely no available space. This is probably going to be a chaotic trip down a rabbit hole unless I get some quick intervention from
I just finished the second in a series (currently there are only 3 designs, but that’s just because I haven’t created the 4th one I have planned) of Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire inspired sigil hats!
They look like this: I completed the Stark hat on Monday (this is the aforementioned hat that I knit on a US5 instead of a US3…it’s comically large and was almost a bit tragic, but I think it's all going to work out) and yesterday I did the final seaming on the Lannister
Sometimes you do a thing where you knit an entire fingering weight hat on US5 needles because you don’t label your circular needles, you misplace your gauge checker 5 minutes after each time you locate it, and you were convinced you were knitting with a US3.
Or maybe that’s just me.

Swatching up a new yarn for a new project. This might be my new favorite of all acrylics. It’s soft and squishy and doesn’t squeak at all. And, of course, it’s from Knit Picks.
More to come on this new project as things progress! #ProjectPlanning #YarnKnitPicks #CraftKnitting #FandomDoctorWho
If you read a few of my posts a few weeks ago while I was on hiatus from the sport weight 4th Doctor scarf, you may have heard me allude to a new exciting project.
Well, it’s done enough that I can share it with you!
Inspired by my recent Frostfangs hat, the AMAZING Knit Picks Imagination Hand Painted Fingering Yarn in all manner of colourways with exciting fantasy names (Castle Walls, Ruby Slippers, Treasure), and my supreme love of all things A Song of Ice And Fire, I h
First…sorry this post is long overdue. Life, you know?
If you’ve been keeping up, you know about the great yarn saga of 2014 and all that went into the second of my “Two 4th Doctor scarves in two months” plan, so I won’t get into it too much. I will say that this was my first time using multiple yarn sources to make a scarf, and I don’t much like it.
Some thoughts: I still adore Knit Picks Wool of the Andes above all other yarns for this scarf. In the future (after this n
