Team Rubberhoars iz Ossim

The Ravelympics is here! I took this opportunity to take a break from sweater knitting and pop my shawl cherry with Clapotis (I know, I know, everyone and their grandma have done it already). I’m still doing the increases and will have to speed up a little if I want to do something else before the […]


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 […]

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 […]

Burgundy Breeze

This project has been hibernating for more than half a year since I first started it in October last year. I stopped mainly because I had 2 skeins of the yarn in the same dye lot which should give me a pair of normal length socks and I didn’t want to knit 2 pairs of […]

Autumn Monkey

When do you consider a project as fully completed? Immediately after the knitting’s done? Or when ends are woven in? How about when it’s blocked? For me, it’s all of the above plus when it’s been photographed. That’s when I consider the project as fully completed and I can change the project status on Ravelry […]

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 […]

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 […]

Knitty – Breeze Socks

I started on Knitty‘s Breeze some time ago with Knit Picks‘ Risata. The pattern is simple enough (minus a few mistakes on my end due to exciting Law & Order: SVU episodes) and I’m almost done with one sock (left with grafting the toes). However, when I tried on the sock, it’s a little too […]

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 […]
