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?

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.

I had mentioned in the last post that I had two projects that I needed to finish before I could get to my amazing new yarn. Well, one project down and one to go!

These are some fingerless gloves that I designed and it was one of those things that just kind of happened.

I lost a pair of solid fingerless gloves with a big chunk of ribbing on the wrist and end and at the same time, I stumbled upon this amazing Frog Tree Brushed Suri yarn at a yarn store and just HAD to make something with it, so that was what my next project was going to be.
