I’ve been knitting, but not blogging much lately. I recently had to change hosting as my lovely, free hosting company decided to close up shop this month :(. The switch went seamlessly which really surprised me. I was expecting some down time for this site.
So here’s what I’ve been working on:


Scarf and Hat out of 6-strand carded fleece (I love this stuff).
A couple things about this project. I love the fleece and want more! I’m happy with my hat, but not the scarf. I didn’t have enough of the cream fleece to make the scarf long and I won’t have any to make mittens. Since the fleece was purchased by my grandma over 20 years ago it’s unlikely I can buy a matching dye lot of this. I could try to find more for the mitts though.

Yarn Harlot’s Recipe for socks has helped me create these as I ride the bus to and from work.


Garter Stitch Cardigan (going very slowly – I keep getting distracted).



I made a second quick hat as per a request from my sister. I had to give it a good washing though as it smelled of sheep and the brown dye made my fingers dirty when I was knitting it. I can’t believe the yarn still smelled of sheep with it being at least 20 years old. There are bits of straw still stuck to it too.
