A new project!

I have so many works in progress that I have been trying really hard not to start new ones. But here I am anyway, lol.

This is one of my absolute favorite yarns to work with, and in my favorite colorway! I used it years ago for some of my kitty hats and then couldn’t find it again for the longest time. Turns out that they just don’t carry it at Joann, and maybe only exclusively at Michael’s (I didn’t check that out, I’m lazy.) Since Michael’s generally has a really small yarn section I didn’t think to look there until I went down the aisle out of habit during a trip to get embroidery thread. 

I wanted something really simple to work on this weekend while re-binging all of Stranger Things, and this type of scarf is pretty much the simplest thing, ever. 


Flat brioche can eat a dick!

I keep messing it up and it literally takes less time to start the fuck over than try to rip out stitches and figure out how to put that shit back on the needles. However, I’m assuming that I won’t always mess it up, so I guess I’ll keep practicing. This is attempt, like, 15.

My hands hurt so I need to stop now, though.

Holy crap, it’s Christmas Eve.

I have no photos right now, largely because I’m drinking and watching Penny Dreadful with a cat on my lap. The big red blanket is done, the maiden aunt scarf is done, the angel for grandma is done, and we got the sister a super cute pajama onesie in mid-October.

Sean gets to handle the menfolk. Which is why we are totally unprepared for them.

I’m planning to spend much of the afternoon/evening with a friend and have been trying to make her a scarf, but my cat is an asshole so it’s not been a productive evening, lol. Hopefully I’ll have good updates before Christmas Day.

I learned to do something new!

Using variegated yarn to make cool repeating patterns is sooooo much fun. This is what I did all afternoon and evening Saturday:
