FO – Rainbow Baby Blanket

Hi All, Mama (aka Megan) and the family have received their package, so it’s time to start blogging about everything I made for Baby Rainbow (aka Rainy). In case you missed it, here are the Baby Mitten Socks and Tulip Stitch Headband I made for her and blogged about in the past. Let’s start with…

30 Day Knitting Challenge – Day 10

Do you have a favorite pattern or designer? I absolutely love Rebecca Danger and her book The Big Book of Knitted Monsters. I’ve made two of the patterns so far and they are really easy to follow. They make excellent gifts for my great nieces / nephews and are easily customizable. For the first monster, I…

30 Day Knitting Challenge – Days 7 & 8

I actually made it 48 hours without being on the computer. Let me tell you…it really helped a lot! I went and got a pedicure on Tuesday and relaxed the rest of the day; catching up on some shows on my DVR. Yesterday my husband and I went on an afternoon date to see Star…

30 Day Knitting Challenge – Day 6

What is your favorite piece that you’ve knit? This question is a hard one because I’ve loved almost everything that I’ve knit. I wouldn’t go into a project without first loving the pattern itself, or at least thinking I love it. I have knit with some yarn that I didn’t love; however that’s a question…

30 Day Knitting Challenge – Day 4

How did you learn how to knit? For my very first project, way back in 2011, I purchased a kit titled “I Taught Myself How to Knit“. I made the scarf that I talked about on Day 1 of the challenge and promptly stopped knitting after that project. I couldn’t figure out the purl stitch…

FO – Quick Stitch Cardigan

Hi All! You might remember that a few days ago, I posted a dilemma with the baby cardigan I was knitting. I accidentally cast on too few stitches for the arm length, and wasn’t sure if I should frog all the seed stitch or continue on. I appreciate all of the advice I received and decided…

FO – Bee Cozy

Hi All! You know those kind of weekends when it’s so hot outside that all you want to do is sit inside with the air conditioner running and knit? Yeah, me too. In fact, that’s what I did this weekend. And for my efforts, I have another finished object! This happens to be my 75th…

FO – Hugo the Couch Potato Monster

Hi All! I have another finished object for you and I am so pleased with this one. As I mentioned in a previous post, I wanted to make sure that my great nephew, Athan, has a present when I send along the baby items (blogged about here and here) to my niece Brittany and her hubby,…
