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 …

Dishclothes

My nephew got married so of course he gets hand made gifts. This one is crocheted. The pattern is Love Dishcloths. I am not very happy with it because it doesn’t lie flat. I keep saying I’m going to iron it, but that involves getting my ironing board out, and my iron, in other words, …

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 …

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 …

I know this is not knitting 

This blanket has been a wip for forever, not literally but longer then I care to admit. I finally got it out, unfolded it and realized it was almost done. I sewed on the motifs I had finished, crocheted enough to finish the last row, and then decided that instead of crocheting the border and …
