Potholders & Coasters for Everyone!

I had a few months there where anyone who was due a gift was getting subjected to my newfound crochet skills. I’ve finally calmed down a bit – though I reserve the right to subject a few more of these babies on unwitting friends and family. If you are in line for a gift and I haven’t already made these for you then be forewarned. The holidays are coming up…

Eee, Eii, Eiki

I’ve just switched my blog over to WordPress and have a lot of catching up to do…

Though I haven’t blogged in a while, I’ve actually been knitting and crocheting quite a bit. So here’s a finished piece from last May – the Eiki Shawlette. This was a fun project that had the perfect ratio of relaxing garter stitch and an interesting lace pattern – my favorite kind of knitting.

The pattern is by Janel Laidman and I knit it using the super squishy and wonderful Kelpie Fibers Taliesin MCN Sock yarn in the Zanzibar colorway.

Now I just need to figure out how all those french chicks wear these things and look so cool.
