Turned hem

I have come to really really love turned hems on hats. They do the same 'keep it extra cozy on the ears' thing that a folded brim does, but without having to constantly fuss with where the fold is and wonder if it's straight and wonder if it's slipping down and refold it when you yank it out of a pocket.⁠ How about you, have you tried a turned hem? Do you like them? Do you want to try them? Are you suddenly feeling like you want to sneak hidden messages (or at least other colors) inside the next one [...]

Delineated is here, and you can find it on both ravelry and payhip. Use the code WAVY for a little something off for the first few days it's out (as always, if you get email from me, do check your inbox first, you've got a different code waiting for you there). This all started because I wanted to see if I could draw lines on my knitting. The answer was a resounding yes, yes I can absolutely draw lines on my knitting. And so can you! And I knew the lines were gonna be cute, but I didn't expect that [...]

Stash dive

This should be out next week, and I wanted to run the yarn down with you so you can go on a stash dive/lys excursion as needed! So, I used three yarns for this (though you could get away with just two if you were so inclined). The dark purple at the brim and the gray on the hat body are two different colors of the same base. And then there's some wild pink floofy business held alongside the gray yarn and for the squiggly lines. On my hat, I used La Bien Aimée's Merino DK in Madeleine for the [...]

Roll call

Oh, let's talk about the yarns I used on this hat. You'll want three, one floofy, two smooth. I know mixing and matching yarn can be a tiiiiny bit scary, but it's actually sort of fun once you get the hang of it, and it's a fantastic way to use some of those partial balls left over from other projects! For the smooth yarns, you want them to both be about the same weight (here they're both La Bien Aimée's merino dk). The weight itself doesn't matter much. The pattern is written so you can work at 5, 5.5, 6, [...]

Shiny Objects

So I'm in one of those phases where I have A Whole Lot of Projects, all at various stages of completion, yet somehow all I want to do is Start New Thiiiiiiiiiings. Like this guy. This guy that's all the way knit, and which I actually wrote the whole pattern for, charts and all, and then...sort of forgot about? Because I was distracted by the new shiny somewhere between here and there? Because my brain can apparently just do that if I'm not careful? It's time to tidy some of that up! There's a testing call up for this over [...]
