Knit Mittens!

Knit Mittens!

January 4, 2015 by Maire in Hobbies, Patterns / 0 Comments

Writers have NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). Knitters….well, they just pick a month and knit the heck out of things. I’ve heard of NaKniSweMo (Sweaters), and October usually is dubbed “Socktoberfest”. January is apparently NaKniMitMo, which translates into mittens.

Do you like Comic and Entertainment conventions?  Are you in Calgary? Do you knit? The Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo will be taking place at our Stampede grounds from April 24th through April 27th. The Husbeast and I have weekend tickets purchased and will be going to say hi to friends and get a good […]

I’ve been wanting “TARDIS mittens” for awhile now.  I looked online and found mittens decorated as Tardises (Tardi?), and mittens decorated with Tardises (what is the plural on that, anyhow?). I just didn’t find what I was looking for.  There was one front-runner, but I quickly found myself ripping it back and starting all over […]

First things first!  Let’s get the pattern-wise info up & over with so we can get on to the real rambling! 😉 Every year I participate in a Ravelry group called “Super Sock Scarefest”. It starts in September and rolls right on through to October 31st. The goal is to complete as many of the […]

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since the last time I wrote anything here.  I have moments where I could have sworn that I had written a full blog post, but then the moment passes and I head back on my way to whatever I was doing. It feels like its been a […]

I know it’s been ages since my last post…what can I say? Life happens and this time it kicked me in the butt. I’ll be getting back to more regular posting soon, particularly now that we’re on our way to Yule and the mittens I was knitting as presents will hopefully soon be winging their […]

Pretty-ish things until I can snag a model and The Good Camera… At some point I’m going to put a hand-lettered sign near that angel with the words “Don’t Blink” calligraphed or somehow etched onto it. Between it and the zombie in the back garden, our yard is gaining “character”. As an aside: Migraines are […]

I know, I know, I’ve been coy with what I’ve been working on…but I really wanted to get most of the work out of the way before I decided to share. It’s a pattern of Whovian inspiration — the wings of the Weeping Angels in Blink, The Time of Angels, and Flesh and Stone. It’s […]

As promised, a pattern release!  You can download it now on Ravelry. I will admit to being rather excited, as it’s the first pattern work I’ve done in quite a long time. It felt good to dig into page layout again, though next time I don’t think I’ll give myself such a tight deadline. 28:06:42:12 is […]

I figured I would make this an official post rather than a hint in the sidebar of the website for October’s Skinflint Sock Club project. I’m very close to finishing test sock #1 for my new pattern release, 28:06:42:12. If those numbers sound familiar, it’s because that is when the world will end. I will […]
