I just finished this knit-look super bulky slouch but I think it looks more just like a hat. The pattern by Jennifer Renaud was really interesting because of the way the rows increased and decreased. I used two skeins of Mamacha Peruvian alpaca wool blend that is super soft! I also used a 9 mm... Continue Reading →
I finally finished my very first woven project. I now have some experience and will be making many more items on my Ashford 20" Knitters loom. I used a hair twister to twist the fringe and it worked well!
I’m really happy with how this scarf turned out! The yarn is beautiful and worked up great. It’s Claudia Hand painted yarns silky wool lace and I decided to use a G hook. The stitch is an iris stitch and is easy to do. You can watch this video to learn how to do it.... Continue Reading →

Found some wonderful merino superwash bulky yarn called katia fabula from Barcelona Spain to make a scarf. I used a half double crochet through the back loop stitch which makes a nice ribbing effect. This will make a great birthday gift!
I got a wonderful gift recently! My common-law sister-in-law sent me 4 skeins of this beautiful black yarn and told me to make myself something, so I've started it! The yarn is wonderful to work with and is making a beautiful scarf. It's called Mirasol Akapana and it is 65% Baby Llama, 25% Merino Wool,... Continue Reading →
