Totally adore this pattern. Super quick and with less than one skein of Koigu KPPM. Had some left after the beret frenzy from earlier this year, which makes me remember how much I appreciate that pattern.
Need to check the Purl Bee blog again.
Never met a pattern of theirs I didn't like.
These are a giftie for my sister-in-law, lovely wife to 10%.
Knit pretty small (they're super snug on my hands) using US2 DPNs. I've tried the magic loop but the DPNs just help me organize myself better.
And more spinning.
Hello Yarn Fiber
316 yards - a significant chunk o'yarn
as a reminder - those are Size 11 clogs.
DK Weight - getting thinner and thinner!!!
Split the roving down the middle to see if I could get the colors to line up. Sometimes yes and sometimes no.
Thinking about a top down raglan for Z. I've asked Santa for some Zimmerman books. That should do it.
Wanted to bust out and boldly try something new. Now that I can get pretty thin singles - took the fiber club offering spun as thickly as I could. No longer so easy! Plied with thinly spun sparkly singles.
Can you see the glimmers here?
Now the perpetual question: What to make?
Is it lame to knit up another Urchin?
'Tis the season.
Took Z and Moonpie to visit Santa.

Z was just giggly.
Later, he was bummed that he forgot to ask Santa where the reindeer where.
