Having a not so good yarny day

Recently I bought a Huglight, it’s like a book light but has bendable arms you can wrap around your neck. I was really excited to get it in the mail the other day, until I couldn’t get the battery cover to stay and tossed it. I do lat sometimes, I’m impulsive that way. Yesterday I …

NYC Yarn Crawl

NYC Yarn Crawl 2017 was last weekend, 15-17 September 2017. Like last year I went with my knitting group. I looked at it as an opportunity to rush madly about the city with like minded ladies, I was not going to buy yarn or spend a lot of money. Well …. you can probably guess …

This is the second Pincha scarf I have made. The first one was made with the color way “Purple Haze” hence the name ‘Ode to Jimi’. The color way for this yarn is Purple Rain. Get the picture?

I know this is not knitting

To fill you in on what I’ve been doing

These two scarves are the same pattern, it’s called “Workday” you can find it on Ravelry. One is made with a variegated  acrylic and the other is black alpaca. This is another alpaca scarf or shawl if I have enough yarn. It’s the “Hitchhiker”. It’s for my friend who is graduating from college this spring …

How 10 stitches saved a WIP in prison. 

Another WIP I wanted to get to is this cotton blanket. I didn’t have a pattern, if I remember correctly I saw the blanket in a knitting magazine, bought a bunch of cotton yarn and started knitting, first a rectangle, then stripes all around the sides. This necessitated putting stitches from the side I had …
