Monkey See, Monkey Do

I’m almost done with Juliet. It’s soaking in a basin sans buttons as we speak. After knitting something so big (to me), I need to knit something small and a little more complicated. Clearly, the answer is socks and socks it is! I cast on for Monkey last night and am loving the way Knit […]

More Yarn

Wow! I haven’t posted in over a month! I dropped in at Spotlight yesterday and did some yarn shopping. I haven’t bought any yarn there for a looong time because it seems that besides wool, all they stock are synthetic fibres i.e. acrylics, polyesters, acrylics, nylons, acrylics etc. I prefer natural fibres because of breathability […]

Juliet

Although I haven’t been posting, I’ve been knitting. I’ve decided to throw all caution to the wind and cast on for Juliet even though there’s a real possibility of insufficient yarn. I’ve no intention of doubling the yarn and figured I might just (barely) make it since I’m also really petite. And this pattern is […]

Brown Sheep Cotton Yarn

The last of my orders from The Yarn and Fiber Company has finally arrived. So what did I order? Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece (colour Candy Apple) x 3 Brown Sheep Cotton Fine (colour Candy Apple) x 6 If you haven’t noticed by now, red is one of my favourite colours. I also ordered Cotton Fleece […]

Knitty – Branching Out

I started on this pattern previously but never finished it because I didn’t think it look lacy enough. I cast on with a hank of gorgeous red Silky Wool a few days ago and have done 12 repeats so far. It’s looking a little wonky so far so I’m hoping blocking will transform it from […]

Magknits – Jaywalker

I was determined to have at least one knit FO in 2007 and… I did! I finished my Jaywalker last week! Yay me! Pattern: Jaywalker Yarn: 2 x Knit Picks‘ Felici in Hummingbird (I think I might have enough left over for a pair of footies!) Needles: 2.00mm (Knit Picks Nickel Plated DPN Set)   […]

Tweed Yarn

I grabbed the chance to enhance my stash when Lois decided to destash (she still has some lovely Malabrigo Baby Merino Lace for those interested). Strictly speaking, I’m not a fan of pastel colours (prefer deep reds, olive greens and generally autumn colours) but I really wanted to try the yarn, especially the silky tweed. […]
