My entire room is now in my living room. I’m moving away to my first apartment on Wednesday. I’ll be living on my own, and have a great space for all of my crafting. After the move I’ll be able to craft much more, so get ready. ;)
I’m sure you guys want to see something other than Christmas stockings, but I’ve been really into making them the past couple of weeks. In this one I used a strand of two different yarns; Alpaca Lana Doro (alpaca/wool blend) and Kidsilk Haze Eclipse (mohair/silk/metalic blend). I used these fancy buttons that were handmade in Alaska to decorate the cuff.
Stocking #2 down. In this one I used mohair for the cuff, a merino wool and alpaca blend for the body, and wool for the heel and toe. Once again, this pattern is called ‘Basic Christmas Stockings’, by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas. It’s a fun pattern :D
I’m really excited about this pattern, Basic Christmas Stockings, by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas. This is the first stocking I’ve ever done, and it’s the smaller size of three sizes. I highly recommend the pattern to anyone who wants to knit some Christmas stockings!
I’ve finished the Mohair Bias Loop, by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas. It’s made diagonally with a lace or fingering weight yarn (I used Uluru, by Queensland Collection) and a U.S. 10.5 needle. It’s fun, easy and a great gift item.
I just finished making and photographing another Stephen West shawl, named “Clockwork”. It’s mostly garter stitch with a few slipped stitches and purls to make the adjacent lines in the pattern. I used a fingering weight wool, called “Shetland” from Harrisville Designs.
I’ve been wanting to make some fingerless glove patterns, so I’m making prototypes. I finished a pair just in time for college.
I love working at a yarn shop. We just got our shipment of malabrigo sock yarn in. Naturally, I bought 1 of almost every color.
I’ve finished the shawl, Gyllis by Stephen West. It’s a fun project to do for those that want to learn how to knit lace. I used the yarn “Rios” by Malabrigo.
I have two more rows to go on this shawl 😍
I want everyone to know my WIP collection, so I don’t feel bad for not posting enough. I wish knitting were faster sometimes!

We’ve received the yarn, Harrisville Shetland, by Harrisville Designs. There are so many beautiful colors. I’m currently making a colorwork shawl out of the yarn :)
I’ve finally taught myself the Kitchener Stitch (otherwise known as grafting or the “seamless seam”) to finish this long lost project :D This pattern is an easy introduction to learning the Kitchener Stitch. It can be found on ravelry.com by following this link:

I’m almost finished with my dads best friend’s ripple afghan. It matches all of the colors in her home :)
