My nephew has been begging me for years now to make him an afghan. Well, I had other projects I had started and needed to finish before starting anything else. I was finally able to start on his afghan in March and this is the final product. I'm going to make him suffer a while longer and give it to him in August as a birthday present. One nephew down and two nieces and two nephews to go.
Here's a recently completed ripple afghan I crocheted for a friend. I followed the Neat Ripple Pattern from Lucy at Attic24. A fairly easy, mindless pattern once you get going.
I was looking at the photos of the people I follow on Instagram and noticed one person crocheting a ripple afghan. So, I decided I was going to learn the pattern. After a few searches, I found a pattern and picked up the crochet hook. Here are a couple that I have been working on. Planning on these being Christmas gifts for my niece and mother.
Happy Easter to those who celebrate Easter, Chag semeach to those who celebrate the Pesach (next year in Jerusalem!) and a plain ol' happy Sunday to all others. Peace be with you all!
Just a Boneyard shawl in progress using Kauni EK yarn. Nothing special.
Here's the latest project I've been working on. I decided to use Knit Picks Chroma yarn instead of Noro. The colors I chose for this scarf are Bittersweet Heather and Pool Party. Nothing spectacular but I like it.
I have no idea why but I started knitting on a stocking cap a few weeks ago. It's set to the side quite often to work on other projects.
Yes, I've been bitten by the sock bug. I've been learning how to knit socks using DPNs but I noticed that there is usually a gap where the instep and gusset meet. So, I was wondering if using either two circular needles or the magic loop method would help minimize this problem. Thanks in advance.
I felt like undertaking a new adventure yesterday afternoon, so I brought out this sock yarn I had purchased not too long ago and found a online tutorial on how to knit socks. The sock could look a whole lot better but I'm not going to complain too much about it since it is my first try. I didn't pay too much attention to the leg portion because this was just a practice sock.
Another posting but I promise this will be the last for a while. Lately, I've been tempted to learn to knit hats, so after finding a simple pattern, I decided to go for it. This was made with some stash yarn I had when I first started knitting and didn't want to invest a lot on something I didn't know if I would like.
Okay, I'll be quiet now.
