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 […]

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 […]

Knitty – Branching Out Completed

My first finished object in 2008! All blocked and with ends weaved in! Yay! Pattern: Branching Out Yarn: 1 x Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool in Bristol Red Needles: 5.00mm Measurements: 7 inches wide, 58.5 inches long (after blocking) I did a total of 27 repeats with a few yards to spare. The pattern was simple […]

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 […]

Palindrome Scarf Update

Previously, I started the Palindrome scarf with Knit Picks‘ Shine Worsted. I’ve since changed my mind and plan to use the Shine Worsted for another project. I was still keen on knitting the scarf so I used the Spotlight Basics Delight yarn I had lying around since I still had 4 balls of it. So […]

Branching Out Scarf

I’ve started yet another knit project! This time, it’s Knitty‘s Branching Out in Knit Picks‘ Merino Style in Frost. I’ve only done 3 repeats so far and I love the pattern so, so much. If this is what lace knitting is like, I can add yet another addiction to my list. The scarf definitely needs […]

Palindrome Scarf

After frogging the short-lived Sweet Pea Shawl, I stuffed the yarn into a basket and left it there to languish forgotten. Well, not for long anyway. I took it out to start on the Irish Hiking Scarf and realised that the yarn was in one big tangled mess. I spent half a day untangling it […]

Shimmer Chevron Scarf

The Shimmer Chevron Scarf was the very first project I started when I first picked up knitting. Ha! That sounded like something that happened when dinosaurs roamed the earth but was actually just a couple weeks back. Having a short attention span meant that I got bored after… OOH SHINY! Sorry, where was I? Oh […]
