Color Me Impressed

Finished up another square of the My Years in Yarn(Ravelry link) blanket last night: This one shows quite a trend since May… Everything was blue or gray (or both). So it came around to adding a cat square for the Many Cat’s Cushion, and I think I’ll mix it up; I’ll add some green to […]

B(l)ackout

Along with Camp Loopy, the Yarn Social Bingo game also came to a close this week. I was aiming for the blackout, of course, but I failed to start my Edith mitts (mitts, cables, intarsia), finish my Little House (felt something on purpose), or start my Summer Slipover (pattern in a language I can’t read). […]

Camp Loopy: August

Another project down to the wire. My Camp Loopy Barrey Hiking Vest (see it on Ravelry) was steeked and finished yesterday (well before midnight, at least). I’m not as confident with the crochet steek as I was the machine sewn one, but that’s my fault. There wasn’t colorwork throughout on the vest, so I carried […]

My Little Secret Crop Top

It’s the end of another era. You may recall way back to my first Social DisKnitting post, I was casting on for a MKAL hosted by Jessie Maed with her new, free pattern. The idea was to have something fun to work on, together, while we were all stuck inside. So, I grabbed a cotton […]

Camp Loopy: July

I did a lot better with Camp Loopy this month than last. I comfortably finished a few days before the deadline and had a blocked, pretty photo to turn in for this month’s challenge. Here it is: my Drive-In Movie shawl. I picked the Botany lab for July, since my colors were Birch and Sumac. […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 140

I know it’s been a minute, but I still feel like I don’t have much to show for these past two weeks. My family and I took our annual trip to the Lake of the Ozarks (where we locked ourselves in our friends’ lake house), I’m going back into the office, and I had about […]

The KnitFit App

Size inclusivity has be one of many good conversations coming out of the online knitting community. What if one could be so inclusive, patterns could be tailored to each person’s own, unique body? That’s a lot to ask of a designer, and I know many of us tinker with patterns to suit our needs, but […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 126

I’m on a low on the CoronaCoaster today. Cases keep going up, people are acting like the opposite is true, and we’re supposed to go back into the office soon. It’s a lot. But the yarncrafts are still helping, so that’s good. No new cast-ons since my last post, but I do have these little […]

Bingo!

My other crafty challenge for the summer has been Yarn Social Bingo! I bought five bingo cards, each with a crafty-related squares on them. Participants can get different bingos for Yarn Social loyalty points and entries into a grand prize drawing. The funds raised are going to Harvester’s COVID response partnership, so win-win! And I […]
