The Mitre Rabbit Hole

I’m feeling a bit of ambivalent about my WIPs of late so my blanket has been the recipient of much attention.


It’s squared off again. For sure I’m continuing to add to this project. And I think I’m going to add another row versus a column…for now at least.

I have less than a month until the start of the Down Cellar Studio’s Pigskin Party KAL and that contest does not allow WIPs. So I need to clean the decks so to speak before picking up new projects. I’m already scheming on what I’m going to cast on! Until then…..more Blanket!!

Mitred Mood

My knitting brain is on the fritz lately. Jellybean seems to think sleeping is optional. So the only grey matter I can spare has found it’s way to my scrap blanket.


Since last I showed you I’ve added a full column on the right and I’m now working a new row across the bottom. I may have hit some Etsy sales on mini skeins in order to grow “the precious”. I’m also double dipping into some previous used colors to keep building.

It’s officially lap sized but I’m nowhere near done. I love this too much!

Happy Knitting!!

Growing Squares

My sock yarn memory blanket has seen some additional growth!


I started adding down the right hand side with four new squares. Then I had I skipped around and added one to the bottom. I get a little fussy about trying to mix up the colors and patterns. It’s just a part of the crazy that rolls around in my brain. I don’t like matching colors next to each other. And I have enough scraps that I don’t like solid next to solid or stripes next to stripes (if I can help it).

This project is just so satisfying and is perfect to pick up and put down. It’s kind of detouring my progress on other projects….oops!

Happy Knitting!!

Back To The Blanket

I once again felt the siren’s call of the Sock Yarn Memory blanket. Due to a recent bout of sinus infection and double ear infection I managed to add the entire bottom row while home sick from work.

I have amassed a ton of scraps over the past year and I have plenty of “fuel” to keep this going for awhile. I see this project as being heavy in the rotation for awhile! Sometimes I just sit and pet the pretty. Very good for stress relief but not so good for actually making progress, lol.

Happy Knitting!

FO Friday: Crochet Rainbow Baby Blanket

Oooof, crochet is hard for me. While I like it as a break from knitting and give my hands and arms a different workout….it’s just not intuitive to me. Nevertheless my Rainbow Baby Blanket is done!


Camera angles hide a multitude of sins. I’m still working on not losing stitches as I turn and crochet. But this bulky chenille yarn doesn’t help. It’s a perfectly serviceable blanket just not so much rectangular like it should be. Given that it’s main job will be warmth and the absorption of baby bodily fluids I don’t know I am bothered so much.


The finished size is roughly 34×40 inches. I used three skeins of Bernat Blanket and size K hook. All it needs now is a bath in baby safe soap and tucked safely away for the wee one to be born!

Blanket Victory!

I finished my Mighty Rainbow Blanket!


All glorious 2,080 yards of squishy garter stitch is done done done! I’m soooo happy with this project. It’s soft, it’s huge, and it’s warm!


I didn’t remember to measure this for a finished measurement but it’s all of 10 skeins of Knit Picks Mighty Stitch. This project scored me 600+ points in the Pigskin Party KAL too! I just can’t wait to cuddle under this while the snow falls!

Happy Knitting!!
