It’s Raining!

February 27, 2010

There’s nothing like knitting on a day like this. I’m working on the Katherine hat while enjoying my rainy day drink of choice–milk tea! The pattern is easy to remember with enough variation to keep me entertained.

I’m using Stitch Nation’s “Full o’ Sheep” peruvian wool. I found it while yarn shopping with the momma. It comes in so many pretty colors, I even picked it up in a hot pink!  Haven’t’ decided what I’m going to use it for yet.

Hopefully I can finish this by Sunday evening and squeeze some sewing in. The shop’s looking quite sad 😦

Knittin' Away

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

Envy

February 26, 2010

Everybody raved about this pattern so I decided to give it a whirl. It was a really quick knit and I love how it turned out!

Pattern: Envy

Needles: US11

Yarn: Lion Brand’s Wool-Ease (a little over 1 skein, double stranded)

Mods: I worked this double stranded and did 18 repeats + 2 rows of seed stitch before the button holes.

Wool and the Gang

February 24, 2010

What is this madness?  Wool and the Gang’s Peruvian Wool Vest kit is being sold on Net-A-Porter for $140. I can’t imagine someone buying this–people who already know how to knit could (and probably will) easily make up their own version (or better yet, a nicer one), and those who can’t wouldn’t be silly enough to purchase this kit for their first project…right?

Now I’m wondering if the “Try it on at home.  If it doesn’t fit, return shipping is free.” policy still applies.

Secret Yakuza?!

February 22, 2010

These prints from Stasia Burrington are so cute! I’m not part of the yakuza, but my Mother does call me an “undercover badass.” Do check out her blog and etsy store!

Many thanks to my beezy Sophia for showing them to me ❤

Studded!

Studded Leather Zipper Pouch

Pretty rad, right? It even matches my bangle! I had some extra time to kill today so sewed up a few grocery bags and this zipper pouch. I don’t know what I’m going to use it for yet, but I’m excited!

Bow Headband

February 14, 2010

This was a super quick project! I used this pattern but modified the band a bit since I was using a thicker yarn and bigger hook (5mm instead of 4mm).

I didn’t mind the bigger bow, but the band was epically long. I think I changed it to 90 chains total, and the ends are closed with 6SC instead of 30.
