Over the winter holidays I finished two more hats as a gift for a friend’s granddaughter. Because they were smaller in size, they both knit up quickly. This was a good thing, because boy am I tired of knitting hats. 😁 Both hats were made in the same colorways so that they could be paired […]
While the blog was busy focusing on the advent calendar palooza, I actually finished a knitting project! I had been meaning to knit a baby gift for a coworker that was pregnant, but I kept putting it off. I procrastinated so much I actually had to finish knitting it and weaving in ends while on […]
We’ve made it to the final day! For day 24 of Craftvent, Jimmy Beans gave us finishing material. There’s a darning needle for weaving in ends, a tag you can see on, some beads for tassels if you want them, and a package of Soak. The finishing items are a nice touch! Now that all […]
Today, Jimmy Beans gives me exactly what they gave me yesterday. That might sound like a complaint, but it’s not. How mad can you be about more MadTosh? Here is some more Tosh Merino Light in Dirty Panther.
As I start to get to the end of these advent calendars, I’ve started jotting down my thoughts in preparation for the final day so that I can summarize how I feel about them as a whole. I still get excited every morning to see what’s in the Jimmy Beans box, so that’s a good […]
I can’t believe it is already day 20. Despite knowing that the color repeat means I pretty much know what’s in these last few boxes, I can’t help but still be excited to open them every morning. In today’s Craftvent box, we get more Anzula Nebula in the Au Natural colorway.
Today’s advent calendar posts are super late because I had to stay late at the day job, so they are going to be short and sweet. Trying to get everything done by Friday so that I can have 11 days of no work and no school just means some extra hours are required. For day […]
Has anyone ever been so far behind on a knit along that 18 days in there is still no progress to show? Embarrassing effort on my part, but looking forward to the winter break to actually make progress on this. For day 18 of Craftvent, Jimmy Beans gave to me… Anzula Nebula in Black Cherry! […]
Day 17 is where Jimmy Beans takes me back to France. In today’s box of the Craftvent calendar we received more Le Bien Aimee in their BFL Tough Sock base. The colorway is Fiori. Of all the yarn received in this calendar, I am most excited to knit with this, as it is the only […]
Today in the Jimmy Beans Craftvent for day 16, we get more Manos del Uruguay Allegria in Black. I know I mentioned my love for Manos del Uruguay when this color popped up earlier in the Calendar, but it’s worth repeating. It’s wonderful yarn!
