Happy Belated Turkey Day!

I apologize in advance for being so behind in blogging. I still need to update on London, the London Stitch 'n Bitch day, not to mention knitting related projects and activities.


For now, sit back, enjoy some delicious homemade cranberry sauce and knit up a storm. Or, if you're like me, you could finally get around to crafting a holiday knitting plan...

I'm back from the UK and am busy downloading, uploading, and sorting through almost 1,000 photos from my trip.

Since it gets dark rather early these days in London, I was able to have plenty of time to balance sightseeing and knitting.

I was able to start and complete Fetching.


Love it! However, the gloves seemed really lonely without a matching hat. So, on the plane ride home I improvised and came up with this:


(For more info on yarn, needles, etc please details on ravelry.)

If I were starting over, I'd probably cast on 95 sts versus 90 (I have a big head, what can I say) so that the hat wouldn't have to stretch quite so much. But, I love it, too. I think I'll be making more fetching sets in the near future.

Upcoming posts will have details about the fabulous London Stitch and Bitch including some nummy yarns acquired across the pond!

Temporarily on hiatus

I'll be traveling to London for the next week and will have minimal access to photos/internet, but will actually have the joy of spending some time knitting with one ms. knitsybitsy.

We are planning to attend the first official UK Stitch 'n Bitch day on Saturday! This should be one crafty vacay. I'm taking three projects and I'm guessing that I won't finish even one...well ok, maybe I'll finish one on the plane or something.

Happy knitting!

Koolhaas Hat

I finished my Koolhaas hat. Yay!

It knit up beautifully, and I love, love, love the Ming. I can't wait to get started on my matching Ming scarf.

Here's the question. Should I adapt the Koolhaas pattern to make a matchy matchy scarf, or should I knit a scarf in a different pattern and let the colors do the matching?

Happy Belated Halloween

Last night...

And this morning...

These teeth are going to look gnarly in a couple of days!

Still working on the Koolhaas hat and will hopefully have it done today!
