Carolyn’s Song of the Sea. I block a lot of my customers’ projects, so I figured I’d take photos of the ones I like. This one is called Song of the Sea by Louise Zass-Bangham, which can be found on revelry.com for purchase.
I’m out at dinner with my boss and some customers. It’s so pretty out here.
I want to show you guys this knitting project I’m working on for class in March and April. It’s called the Hourglass Throw, and I’m doing it in Cascade ‘Eco Cloud’. It’s so pretty :D
I’m back home now, and my black dress form has arrived :D I’ll be taking photos of all my product for my etsy shop this month and will be trying my best to get it open this month. This is a scarf I made for my grandpa :)
This month I taught a class on how to make the ombre cowl by unique dIzigns. It’s a fun and easy pattern to work through. The pattern is free and can be found here: http://www.uniquedizigns.com/p/patterns.html
I finished my moms Christmas/birthday present. It’s not an official picture yet because I still need to block it, but this is really pretty.
I just finished putting together my craft desk :) it is mainly for the swift and ball winder, but maybe I can start using my sewing machine now :D
This girl that came in today designed her own “Katnis cowl” and I think she did a great job on it.
I hand-dyed some Alaskan hand spun yarn I received from a friend. The color is a little off in the third photo, but I couldn’t seem to fix it (It’s blue :)). I used Koolaid as my dye base. They smell pretty good :D
Today was the two year anniversary of my craft blog. You guys have seen it change so much over the past two years, and thank you for sticking through the changes. I’m very grateful for all of you. Thank you guys :)
I’ve made some fingerless gloves called align mitts, by Pink Brutis Knits, with locally spun and dyed yarn from Palmer, Alaska. This artist has tons of cute fingerless mitten patterns. This one is for free here: http://pinkbrutus.com/align-mitts/
I’m finally getting around to opening an etsy shop for my knitted and crochet goods. I have a trip to California next week and then when I get back I’ll be trying my hardest to get it open :)
I wanted to repost this since the color was off in the first photoset. This is the Cabled Cowl in the book Andes by Debbie Bliss. I made it in Blue Sky Alpacas “Alpaca Silk”. It blocked out beautifully and I can’t get over it’s drape.
I’ve completed another Shibui Mix no 10 hat. It took a month and I’m not pleased with the colors I chose together :/ But now I am gonna get a lot more projects finished since it’s done.
Rub a dub dub, three facecloths in a ceramic tub :D I completed my aunt’s gift for the holidays.
