EEEEEEEEE my Babs came with a 10y mini skein IT’S SO CUUUUUUUTE even though it’s pink, but dang it feels good
mini-skein mania may be setting in
Finished a_simmetrie from ceciknits. A wonderful pattern full of charming details! My black beauty lilies are popping in the background…had to get those in too.
Got some stash yarn you absolutely love, but don’t know what to use it for? Here’s some color-blocking inspiration for you!
The first three could be just about any plain sweater pattern, but the fourth would be very well suited to Alicia Plummer’s Ease!
the second sleeve syndrome is so real
NEW SWEATER COMING UP, I’M SO EXCITED!!!
The first hank pictured was one I got almost two years ago, when I first started knitting. It was briefly a shawl, which I didn’t really like and had no plans to wear, so I frogged it and spent a year looking for something to pair it with to make a sweater. I FINALLY FOUND A MATCH - THAT BLUE STUFF - which is on its way to me, and will soon become the sweater I’ve been dying over for months and months.
Both yarns are Miss Babs’ Yowza Babette skeins (Nobody but You and Innovative). The sweater is After the Rain by Heidi Kirrmaier ($6.80CAD).
You arrive at your aunt’s house on a pleasant, breezy day in August, bags packed with a couple weeks’ worth of clothes and books. She has invited you to housesit while she’s on vacation, since she knows you’ve always loved her cats. As you walk up to the front door, you realize what that…
Well I’m figuratively pissing myself. Leethal mystery knit-along?? I hope the couch has $8 in change - TO THE CUSHIONS!!!
Also knit ages ago but never photographed: my Aidez cardigan and first ever sweater. Sorry for the bad webcam pics, I really need a tripod for my good camera. Anyway, this knits up super fast, it’s great cable practice AND the warmest piece of clothing I have ever worn.
