New swatch/sample in Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable , I think it looks nice for a first draft. 
You may notice that it is a cousin of the Petal Cowl. Does it look too similar to get it’s own pattern?

  2. DAY 9 - What fiber or yarn do I love working with?

    I love working with merino wool, not just because it’s soft, but because it produces a cleaner looking knit. Most other wools have little fibers poking out and look ruffled after you start working with it. Whereas merino leaves the stitches looking neat. 

    But since I’m a poor college kid, I can’t always afford merino. So I use acrylics for some projects (I can hear the yarn snobs cringing over the interweb). I particularly like Caron Simply Soft (pretty much for the same reasons why I love merino). 

    (Side note:  I’m totally on board with the yarn snob opinion on Red Heart, though. No offense, but how in the world do some people think it’s acceptable to use that for garments?!)

This is my work-in-progress Christmas present for my SO. It’s gonna be a scarf. :) It’s my first try at having different colors, but I think it turned out okay.

    Finally finished and wet-blocked! 28+ hours of work into my most intricate project to date. The yarn is a hand spun cotton blend, and the pattern is Scopes Hat on Ravelry. The finished hat went to the wonderful and beautiful Connie Phillips, who is about to go in for another major surgery and round of chemo. I love her so very much and hope the hat can help keep her spirits up.

    Are you a tight knitter? It can be a tough habit to break, and many knitters don’t really consider it a problem. Personally, though, I found that it slows me down and can often make knitting more of a chore than a relaxing hobby.

    This video from Liat Gat of KnitFreedom.com really helped me loosen up, especially the bit about holding the yarn too taut. Check it out!

  13. I constructed this lovely tablet cozy for my mom in two days. The yarn is Peaches and Cream. I just did a garter stripe pattern with 24 cast on stitches. In retrospect, I should’ve done some edge stitches to ease sewing it all together. Oh well, it still turned out fine.

  14. DAY 8 - What’s your most challenging project?

    The second sock omg. A Celtic knot scarf I’m making for my best friend is a close second, but only because it has soooo many cables and it takes an hour to do nine rows of 44 stitches. It’s taking me forever to even get through my first skein on it.
