What I Knit and other stuff

These are stitch markers from the Brooklyn yarn crawl. What is a yarn crawl you say? It’s like a pub crawl, instead of drinking you buy yarn. This is a 32-oz crowler sized coozie. One side says, “5H Fiber Faction” which is what the craft meetups at 5th Hammer are called. The other side is …

Sports and drinks

Now that I have become somewhat proficient in double knitting (and now that I have seen a video explaining how to add the second color after the cast on), I am doing it in the round. I have done both of these designs flat, now they are going to be drink holders or as we …

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 that sometimes, I’m impulsive. Yesterday I decided to …

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 …

A Prince is born

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?
