I was desperate to make a baby hat for a friend who was expecting, and I tried for ages to teach myself magic loop knitting using online tutorials. It was a frustrating mess! In stepped my awesome friend Sarah who is incredibly talented (I'm in love with her home-brewed sock collection!) and she showed me how to knit in the round. It was a revelation and I haven't looked back since!
This past week I have had time off from my regular day job, and I have filled my time with yarn based goodness as well as day trips with the husband. I discovered a new source of yarn, fabric, buttons, and other yummy things (www.eternalmaker.com) with a friend and have started new projects that are stretching my skills.
Here are some of my current WIPs:
|Pattern - Evergreen Lake Mitten by Sunne Meyer from her Craftsy class: Stranded Colorwork: Basics and Beyond|
|Pattern - Smocked by Jenny Wiebe available on Ravelry|
|Pattern - Granny Square Blanket by Staci Perry of Very Pink Knits|
I have a couple of other things cast on, but I'll save them for a later post.
Have a wonderful weekend!
