In which I knit

I've been in quite a knitting mood over the last few months so it's about time I shared some of my projects with you!

My husband won me some gorgeous red wool yarn and I decided to knit up this cute cropped sweater with it.

It knit up pretty quickly. The longest part was actually picking out the buttons! lol

It's not from a vintage knitting pattern but the crop style works great with high waisted skrits.

My ravelry page for this project is here.

One of my friends and her husband just started fostering a little boy and I couldn't resist knitting up this little monster hat! Ravelry page here.

I also whipped myself up this cute lace hat. I definitely need more hats for this winter! I don't have a lot of stash yarn but I do need some more stash busting projects like this. Ravelry page here.

I've also been knitting up some Christmas presents but I can't exactly share them here incase people peak! My current work in progress is a great shawl from the above pattern. Maybe after it's done, I'll be brave enough to try out one of my A Stitch In Time sweaters again!


  1. I love that sweater, it's so cute. And it looks perfect on you. I've got a beret like your teal one, only it's gray. I think it's a payless item.

    I've been itching to start on of my items, buuuut I lost my row counters. UGH!!!

  2. Your sweater is lovely. Such a nice shade. I need hats too. And gloves. Today was the first really cold day we've had (where there's been frost that stayed all day) and while I was out all I could think about was how cold my head was. It was quite an odd sensation!

  3. That sweater is really cute! I am enjoying my Christmas knitting projects, but I also can't wait to get back to my other projects. Cold weather just makes me want to knit everything!

  4. Isn't it neat how the desire to work more in one crafting discipline than the other arises? I have that happen frequently, too. Sometimes I'll want to make cards or scrapbook pages, then I'll spend three months on a cross stitch, then whip up some jewelry, then feel like scrapbooking again. I like the variety though, as I find that sometimes a breather from one helps you feel more creative when dealing with another, as opposed to trying to tackle a bunch of rather different projects at the same time.

    Your sweet is so pretty! I adore that dark, elegant shade of red and think it looks absolutely gorgeous with your brunette hair.
