Double knitting 

I just finished my third DK project. I’m got the knitting down pretty good but the cast on and off look bad. This is my first project, I got the chart off the internet and used the kitchener method to bind off. My friend got a pattern for a pussy hat made in the double-knitting …

Another koozie

Growler Caddy (craft beer peeps only)

One day, I decided I needed a bag to carry a water bottle in. I had all this ugly brown cotton yarn that I had purchased to make a pad for my swiffer. After three tries and getting bored as fuck, I decided I could just use a washcloth on my swiffer. But what was …
