I finished a pair of socks, Yay! Project details here.
Its for my "boxosox" kal that is going on in the Yarngasm Ravelry Group. All the details here..
Its one of the few podcasts that I watch and I love Kristin's personality..
When she first came up with the idea for the KAL, I thought to myself
this is just the kick in the pants I needed to knit up all those socks I want to!
In my head I am an amazing sock knitter, it doesn not translate well into real life and I realized it is because I get very bored easily when there is no challenge.
Yes its nice to see how the yarn knits up all pretty but I needed something more than that.
Which is why I love to knit shawls so much! They can be complicated, all types of shapes, require a little brain power and use up most of the yarn.
I am VERY much a process knitter if you didn't already know :)
I decided that life is too short just to knit plain vanilla socks so every pair that I will knit will be patterned. My goal is to knit 12 pairs. If I surpass that great but at the very least 12. I think that is a good even number, not so many that I can't achieve that goal.
In my knitting pattern library I have these two books which I will finally use
Both really great books with amazing patterns and I feel really excited to get going on some of these patterns!
I got some happy mail this past week since I have been really good about using yarn from stash in some of my recent projects, I allowed myself a few woolly treats..
in Lichen & Wildflowers (all the hearts for these colors)!!
It actually was really hard to choose, so many pretty colorways!!
In embroidery news I have something really fun to share. As many of you know from visiting my blog I love crafty things especially embroidery..
I came across this lovely shop called Shop Stitch Craft.
Its really great not just embroidery notions but beautiful fabric, stationary items even knitting needles that are super cool!
I received the tiniest little embroidery hoops and the little kits even come with a necklace so you can wear your embroidered hoop around your neck.
I decided to do a little brooch and embroider a little sock and yarn ball!
Its on my Adelaide Cottage project bag.
I love how it turned out. Super cute!
Now for the fun stuff..
I am giving away two Miniature Embroidery Hoop Packs and along with the pack I will send you the little things you need to do finish a hoop yourself.
This is a great way to learn a new craft if you have never embroidered before and its really fun!!
All you have to do is enter down below with your either your
