I’ve learned how to seam today :D I was scared of it, but it’s so much easier than it ‘seams’ (so punny).The left photo is the right side and the right photo is the wrong side.
This is the Romney Kerchief, by Jared Flood. This piece is a simple triangular kerchief/shawl that my boss knit up for our yarn store. I’ve not been finishing anything lately, I do apologize.
I love my first apartment. It’s vintage and old. I’ve spent the weekend putting pieces together, and will continue this week. And, I’ve already finished a knitting project. I have so much more time to craft here. :))
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 :)
