Porcelain Hat

I jumped into brioche. No classes – no swatches – just – oh I want to knit this hat. Oh it’s brioche? I’ll just learn it! And I did.

Two-at-a-time

Now that I have mastered Magic Loop, I decided it was time to learn how to do two at a time so my gloves are more uniform. The only thing was, the yarn I had was already wrapped in a ball. After thinking about it for a while, I decided to just start winding yarn …

Getting it done

Last year was going to be the year of the wip. I was not successful. I think I may have been too general, too ambitious and therefore doomed myself to failure. This year I said, I have to finish 3 WIPs before starting anything new. It worked. The baby hat pictured here is WIP #4 …

Crafting melds

What do I mean by crafting melds? Do I mean combining knit and crochet? No, that is bistitualness. I am talking about putting two completely different crafts together. Like brewing and knitting. I like craft beer, I drink craft beer and I knit at craft breweries. I also make things for some of the drink …

Entrelac beer caddy

If you remember the bottle coozie, this is on the same idea, entrelac in the round, only sized bigger. There isn’t a pattern for this, I make them all the same, just use different yarn and size needles. If you want more specific instructions it might be available on my Ravelry account, BeFoxxDesigns. If it’s …

What I’m knitting

Just a quick recap of my wips (works in progress, yes I know the ‘s’ is in the wrong spot). This is a scarf for my friend Mary, she’s Bruins fan and the design is dependent on wins and loses. I also threw I logo in there. I started one last season and got thoroughly …
