So instead, I think I'm going to start using this blog to talk about knitting techniques, pattern releases, and maybe some silly stories of my knitting life that won't fit in 140 characters. Plus maybe finished photos of projects that I really want to share.
Speaking of which, here's a parade of FOs since my last blog post...
|100th birthday present for my grandmother|
Pattern: Anatolia by Barbara Gregory
Yarn: Circulo Anne
A series of kippahs for DD1's beau, who was bar mitzvahed in January:
In order, we have the Tardis kippah, the kippah with the young man's Hebrew name on it, and a Dalek kippah. (As I'm sure you can tell, he's a Doctor Who fan.) All of them were adapted from the Basic Knit Kippah pattern by Jennifer Tocker.
