Denton's Inventions

Hi, I'm Denton. Nice to meet you. :D I love arts and crafts, especially knitting and crochet. Follow me to see all of my yarn craft projects.

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 had a great day at the Saturday Market in Anchorage, Alaska today. It was my first time selling at a local event and it was a good experience :) I sold quite a few items. Very exciting!

I have two more little birds to go for the Saturday Market this weekend. I have quite the flock :)
