Pillow Cover

When I started this project I had no idea how long it would take. For something so simple (it’s really just two squares woven together) it ended up being the most knitting I’ve ever done. I almost feel ready to make a sweater at this point — and I say almost because it isn’t happening … Continue reading Pillow Cover

Big Blanket

Well, it’s been quite a while since I last blogged; mostly due to the fact that it’s summer time and I rarely bring out the yarn in the summer. As I was sitting around today spending some quality time with Netflix, as I do (it’s Saturday…), I realized I have so many projects tucked away … Continue reading Big Blanket

When I sit down to knit, I’m always temped to create a hat, headband or pair of mittens (that pretty much sums up the extent of my knitting projects), but crochet … Continue reading Jewellery Tray

After I figured out how to knit a cozy, a crochet version wasn’t too far behind. I actually like the crochet version more. Crochet is generally thicker, … Continue reading Cup Cozy

Cup Cozies

It’s absolutely no secret that I love coffee. If I’m awake, I want coffee. One of the greatest appeals of my favourite beverage is also its worst: it’s so dang hot! Thankfully most coffee shops tackle that issue/benefit with convenient coffee sleeves. Most do, but my favourite coffee chain does not—thus, cup cozies! Cup cozies … Continue reading Cup Cozies
