It Fits!!

I actually knit myself something that isn’t overly huge.  And I’m proud of it.  It’s the Cotton Candy Stripes shrug found in the Summer issue of Love of Knitting.  I just picked up the magazine at a local grocery store and thought it had some nice projects in it.  This one seemed perfect.  Here, is […]

The two big ones? DONE.

I have finished my two garments that were previously in WIP status! First, my red sweater is done!  And it is way to big for me.  Boo!  I did a swatch and everything!  I guess I didn’t calculate something correctly.  It seems whenever I do a Lion Brand Yarn pattern, it turns out too big, […]

Finished Shrug

I finished my little shrug!  And I wore it yesterday.  I really like it.  It’s a funky little sweater.  I probably should’ve knit it a size up, but it still fits, despite being a tad snug.  You can see the finished project here. I was pretty pleased with the workshop on Craftsy, though I did […]
