Oopsies.  Fixing a mistake on my Fretwork Pullover by Shiri Mor, from Vogue Knitting Fall 2014.  These are just woven cords, but the same kind of technique applies to cable boo-boos.  Details on my Ravelry project page.

Tested out my idea for dying my hair with some temp blue stuff that was way more of a hassle than just dying it. But. I like it! So green light yay! Now to figure out what supplies I need…

Last night while I was teaching, my whole studio surprised me with a wedding party. It was so cute and unexpected and just goes to show how special of a place I’ve found.

Slowly chipping away at my ten stitch blanket. Haven’t posted an update photo in a long time. My cat immediately walked over and claimed it as soon as I laid it down.

My sock drawer is finally upgraded from a Rubbermaid organizer to an actual dresser drawer. It overfloweth still. 12 pairs went to retirement. That first row? All Socks That Rock #operationsockdrawer #socks #knitting #socksthatrock #bmfa

No more UFOs! Huzzah! Theses socks turned out beautiful and I think I’ll be using the pattern (broken seed stitch sock on ravelry) again. It’s great for when you have just one skein or less of sock yarn. Pair it with a solid and you got yourself enough for two!

So often I see new knitters afraid to try anything that’s not garter stitch, and it hits me how weird of a new knitter I was. My first projects were a ribbed scarf, a lace scarf, double knitting, a lace hat, a short row cowl, and a cabled scarf - in that order. I didn’t finish all these projects,…
