With all of the knitting I do I end up with a lot of tiny leftovers. Even though I throughly enjoy playing yarn chicken (trying to finish a project with just enough yarn), I still end up with more leftover bits than I would like. These tassel ornaments are a great way to use up the yarn ends.
Yippee, I made it through the twelve days of Christmas crafting. Today on day 12 I’m modelling my tall hibernating socks. Knit from a uneek sock kit, in colourway 60. I will be lounging in these socks over the holidays.
Have a very Merry Christmas!
Eight years ago my youngest son was 4 months old I decided that I would learn to knit while on maternity leave because of these tiny trees. I didn’t know how to knit but I knew I had to make these.
They were the first pattern I pinned years before I knew about Ravelry. It has taken me eight years to make them so they are fitting for the eighth day of Christmas.
They tie together my 2 hobbies (wine drinking and knitting) using waste from both to make something new.
Here is the pattern in case you are inspired too.
I started running in January 2019. I’ve been at it for almost a year and have completed 2-5K races, 2-10K races and 1-1/2 marathon. I’ve run 570 kilometres this year and counting. I might try and slide in one more 5K race before the year is over.
Today I am crafting for myself because it’s cold outside. I ran this weekend wearing a toque but got too warm so I knit myself a headband to see if I can keep my ears warm but my head cool.
I make my kids at least one ornament each year with the goal of creating a tree full of decorations by the time they have their own trees. This year I made them knit stars. If you want to make your own the pattern is here.
I participate in a yarn sharing event called Fibre Share. I have done it a few times this year. The theme this round is Christmas ornaments so in addition to sending yarn and other goodies to your partner/stranger there is the expectation to send a Christmas ornament. Keeping in the fibre share theme I knit her an ornament.
It’s that holly jolly time of year again and you better believe I’ve been crafting up a storm again this year. I’ve been at this blog for many years and there are bound to be a few ideas that are similar if not identical because I’m becoming a bit of a creature of habit as I level up each year.
Day one brings a pile of knit hats. I have made 4 so far this season from this pattern called Tin Star by designer Kelly Vu. Yarn is Loops & Treads Cozy Wool.
On the Eighth day of Christmas my true love made for me…
We got hit with a nasty storm today. I walked to a restaurant for lunch today completely unprepared for the weather. It was raining sideways and the wind was whipping. I should have worn these to keep me warmer.
If you love them like I do, you can get the pattern here.
On the Third day of Christmas my true love made for me….
When I go out Christmas shopping I always see things that I love too. Often I get one to gift and one for me. When I am making gifts the same thing happens, but I like to think it is a necessary part of the process. The one for me is a pattern tester ;).
I got this great pattern called Tin Star from Ravelry and made these with Loops and Threads Cozy Wool.
Hi! It’s been a while. I started a new job in January and then another new job in June. My days have been blurring together meeting new people and learning my roles within both organizations. But I have been crafting too.
I’m married and share a bed with my husband. My husband sweats in the middle of winter sleeping in his underwear, and I wear a toque, gloves, wool socks and long underwear and am still cold. This poses a little issue for us. How do we share a blanket?
I knit this 10 stitch blanket to solve my problem. It’s a blanket only for me which is a wool blend and goes only on my side.
