Bojagi Shawl

This project was my choice for the Quiet Queers Craftalong 2020, it's a design by the craftalong's creator and when I saw it I adored it. It also finally felt like the right project for my handspun gradient that I'd been holding onto for the perfect project. I'd made this gradient yarn by painstakingly pulling... Continue Reading →

SM15 3 – What Big Beleaf You Have

Writing this post took a long time to bring myself to. This project took a lot of time to finish; while it wasn't what I'd call a hate knit, it honestly wasn't far from it.

I named this project Wintergreen Heart Tree. Somewhat interestingly I was just getting started... Continue Reading →

I've also had a gradient I spun some years back which I'd been waiting for the right project for. This year I've challenged myself to use some of my precious yarns... Continue Reading →

Scrappy Tickseed Socks

Tickseed is a pattern by Mylene Pijpers. It was featured as a bonus pattern after round 4 during the 2020 Sock Madness competition. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make these. Using them as a base for my scrappy yarn project was an interesting challenge. Changing yarns every 7 rows... Continue Reading →

WIP: Anarchist Socks

Key Details Started: 14 November 2020Finished: Cast On: Alternate Cable cast onBind Off: Modifications/Pattern NotesUsing smaller needles than the pattern states. I prefer stockinette in 2.25mm and therefore went up to the 68st size to get closer to my normal sock foot size. The colourwork on the heel wasn't plentiful enough to justify a looser...
