I saw this pattern yesterday on a crochet board. I haaaave been needing one of these, and I had some left over kitchen cotton I’d planned for another market bag, but I have enough of those already. So I cast on (chained? hooked? I don’t know my crochet terminology) and finished it within a day. … Continue reading Something quick: bath puff!
Recently I’ve been working exclusively on a pair of socks for my father’s birthday. I didn’t finish them on time (and I’m not finished yet!) but I did let him try on the one sock I had done.

I used some great alterations from disdressed for a two strap bag instead of one, because it seemed sturdier to me … Continue reading Summer Knitting
Danica This is the scarf that started the Danica revolution on Craftster. It’s the finished knit I’m most proud of. It’s made of the beautiful Paton’s SWS in Natural Earth. I used around three balls, and it reaches around my hips, which I’d say is a pretty good scarf length. The second Danica I knit … Continue reading Catching up: Scarves
