Wet And Wooly Wednesdays

Putting the blocks to “Ollie” 😉

I KNOW!! Right?!

When did I turn into “The Blockinator”?

So totally worth it to make the time. Ollie has come out huge and I’m glad, it gives the gradient colourway lots of room to be appreciated and look at all those nupps!

Loved this project. Janine is a whiz with lace patterns and I am totally smitten with the Unique Sheep’s Luxe base.

Santa?

All In The Details ~ Seaming Knits

The week got away from me! Mind, some may be glad that The Squirrel Monkey paused for a blogging breath 🙂

I stumbled over this tutorial for seaming and I love it. The technique is one I’ve used “by accident” when I was a beginner knitter, simply because it made sense (having learned crochet at the same time). This is beautifully illustrated through the original post too, as the picture below.

There Simply Aren’t Words…

To describe just how much I hate and despise blocking.

Oh, I love the end result but the getting there…?

If there was a blocking and finishing faery out there, she would be my best friend!

My least favourite part of knitting and crocheting...

It seems too, that I’ve run out of T-pins. This after going and buying four packets because I can’t recall what box I packed mine in!
