what do you want to make in 2020?

It’s a thing….The Make Nine Challenge… I’m not sure who started it. But you can see all kinds of plan by your friends and people you follow on Instagram and Facebook. Here is my Make9:

4 of these are WIP’s. I want to finish those 2 pairs of socks. As well as the Ursa sweater and the Conflagration scarf. I will work on those first.

Then on to new projects: a shifty pullover with my Synergy yarn.

Some quick slippers with some of our Stratus farm yarn.

A Ruffles scarf using Zephyrette, I think….

The Anemone Hat with some handspun. And the cowl with 2 colors of Alto I think.

Alto DK weight yarn

What do you want to make? Will you take the challenge? Comment on the blog to let me know!

new sweater in the works

URSA Sweater is available on Ravelry

I need a warm and really sturdy sweater for this winter. The yarn I’m using is Cacao that I made into a 3 ply so that it is more of a bulky weight. I tried, believe me I tried to get the half brioche stitch correct in the raglan areas. I finally gave up and did a PKP rib there. Because this is going to be a outside sweater and barn sweater, I’ll probably make it longer than the pattern suggests. We’ll see how it goes.

What are you knitting this winter? Reply here or on Facebook and Instagram to let me know.

couch knitting on hot summer days

knitting in the wild

I love to do my knitting on the couch watching/listening to a guilty pleasure on the TV. Here’s a fun and easy 2 color brioche cowl knit in the round. Full disclosure…..I did have to redo this first attempt at least 4 times to fix mistakes as I learned this new technique. Yarn pictured is Rum Raisin LiViLy Cormo Worsted and Synergy mint green Worsted. You can grab some of this in my online store.

knit more wherever you are

Knitting tank top at fiber show

Our lives are so busy. It’s important to take some time to do repetitive tasks like knitting or crochet. And why not do it in public? If you can work 10-15 minutes a day on your project, it will get done. So this month knit in public! I’m knitting my Zephyrette Top designed by Corrine Wacher. Obviously I’m using my Zephyrette yarn (a luxurious blend of baby alpaca, cashmere and silk) It’s like knitting with kittens!! Go grab some for yourself in my online store.
