Luxurious Loom-Knit Neckwarmer

It’s been a while since we talked loom-knitting around here.  Ever since I got the hang of the needles, my knitting loom collection has been languishing in the basement.  There is one project, however, that has routinely seen me dust off the little blue knifty knitter and take it for a spin.

The Christmas Crafting

I let myself off the hook this year, big time.  In fact, there were only four handmade gifts total. First were the neckwarmers I knit for the boys.  Eamonn’s been asking for a scarf lately – last week was so chilly! – so I looked to my go-to pattern and scaled it down for smaller […]

Coming unraveled

Everybody knows I needed another social network in my life, so it shouldn’t come as a suprise that I went and joined Ravelry this week.  For the non-yarn-afflicted out there, Ravelry is kind of like Big Database of Yarns, Patterns, and Finished Projects meets Flickr. Members share images of their yarn stash, their works in […]
