2009 Review

I doubt I can finish another project by the last day of the year, which is tomorrow, so I’m going to do my review now. At the beginning of the year, I told myself I’ll try to complete at least one project a month, and I did i.e. I finished more than 12 projects. I […]

Yet Another One Row Handspun Scarf

Oh Malabrigo or should I say Mmmmmmmalabrigo. Certainly soft as buttah but a bitch to wind. I had to keep pausing while winding because the yarn kept sticking to itself. Also, as the yarn is so soft, I’ve to wonder how well the scarf will hold up. I’ll be hesitant to use this for a […]

Scrappy Lengthwise Scarf

Wow. Looks like I haven’t posted in forever. I lost my knitting mojo for a while but I’m now slowly getting it back. I love knitting but living in a tropical country where I’ll never get to wear beautiful hand-knit wool sweaters gets a bit discouraging some time. Most of the time, I’ll just substitute […]

Annette

This has been completed for a while but I only just got around to photographing it. Pattern: Annette Size: S (knit at smaller gauge to give about 32″ size) Yarn: slightly less than 5 x Knit Picks Shine Sport in Orchid Needle: 4.0mm Modifications: Started with 4 rows of seed stitch instead of 2. Did […]

One Row Handspun Scarf

I started this scarf for the charity knitting thread in Rubberneckers. The 4-stitch pattern’s perfect for mindless commute knitting. I can just put it down and pick it up again any time with no fear of losing my place in the pattern. Pattern: One Row Handspun Scarf Size: ~ 60″ x 6″ Yarn: 1 x […]

Almost Annette

This is Annette from Knitty Summer 2009. It’s almost complete. I just need to sew on the buttons and weave in ends and I’m done! Couldn’t resist taking a few pictures first though. Annnd I’ve begun swatching for my next project! The yarn is Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy and it came out pretty soft after throwing […]

Malabrigo Cherry

I’ve finally popped my Malabrigo cherry. Yea, I know it’s not the wildly popular Merino Worsted (which I’m dyyyyingggg to try) but it’s still Malabrigo, so it still counts, right? Goodness, the colours are freakin’ awesome. The yarn feels soft and smooshy in the hank but I’ll only really know if I truly love it […]

Hats, Hats & More Hats

I spend a lot of time on Ravelry and most of it is with the Rubberneckers. They’re a hilarious bunch of hoars. I knit three hats for Sharky’s charity knitting thingy on RnR and I apologise for being two seasons late. I don’t have a small child to pose with the knits so my lamp […]

Please update your bookmarks and feed readers. Some things on the blog may still be broken so please let me know if you find any. This blog is still […]

Rubberswap Package

It was most unfortunate that in my virgin swap, my swapper went MIA. BUT! Thanks to the generosity of other rubberhoars, I got a swap package. The package was sent priority and postage was clearly insane. The package smelled wonderful as I opened it. As you can see, everything was beautifully wrapped. I almost didn’t […]
