Hello!  Sorry, it has been a while yet again.  My computer was dying and made it completely impossible to browse on the internet much less upload photos and post things.  Que sera sera…

In the meantime, I have been thinking up projects and made these mitten-glove things as an adaptation of a vintage pattern for fair-isle mittens.

I so did. Prada had these amazing headbands on their models for the F/W 2011 show (which I previously fawned over). In case you forgot, this is what they looked like:

Mine looks like this:

Since it is getting warmer, it is harder to motivate to knit. Something about the heat…

I have been dreaming of fall and lovely things to knit. I am busy *thinking* of my next project. I think it will be some sort of clothing. Perhaps a skirt… Well at least that will be a start.

In the meantime, I have been making pillows. Here is one of my latest in purple and pinks. They are fairly quick to make, and you know, I might just start another one…

I made this about a month ago but couldn’t post it till now because it is a gift for some friends that are having a baby. I really loved having it around and am sure they will enjoy it just as much.

It is a monkey made with alpaca with embroidered accents. It is a pattern I adapted from a vintage pattern and I love the results. Yay monkey!

Since my first encounter with knit slippers a few months ago, I have had them in the back of my mind.

The pattern I made the slippers from was good, but it was essentially a rectangle that needed to be seamed to fit a foot. I knew there was a better way, so the other day while watching TV I whipped up a pair of these cute ballet house flats.

These have a turned heel and the only seaming that takes place is the kitchener stitch at the front. The best part? They take no time at all!

Remember this and this? Well, they became these fun knee-high socks!

I call them Springtime Color Block Socks – which kind of rhymes. They are made from that yummy cashmere with some fun flecks of Koigu Merino.

I have a new pattern up for sale! KnitPicks liked my Sweet Mock Pleat Skirt so much they asked me to make a version using their lovely Suri Dream Yarn.

Just like the Sweet Mock Pleat Skirt, this patten is made to be adaptable to *any size* and you can get the pattern from KnitPicks here for only $1.99! You can also find the pattern on Ravelry. Happy knitting!

It started with inspiration and went through a few bumps in the road before they got on track – but! – eat your heart out Chanel because my fuzzy cashmere tights are done!

And I think I still have a few weeks to get some use from them, no?

FINALLY an update! I fixed that awfulness – yes I did.

Now technically, these tights should have been done by now but after I fixed the seam and got to about where they were in that last post, I realized something else was wrong…

I have this ability to look at something and be able to figure out how to knit it. Years ago I thought to myself, “I want to knit some hearts!” so I did.

Recently I have been thinking about those hearts and what I could make with a mess of them. At first I thought of a scarf but I have so many of those. Then I figured why not make the next best thing – a knit headband that not only looks cute but warms your ears – and that’s what I made.

I also like the way the neck tie looks.
