I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit (and weave now, too!) but I seem to take more photos of my toddler than my crafts these days. She has that cute factor going for her. Because of this, I have started a tumblr called Tiny Taughts of our home lessons, crafts and projects. Please visit me there and I promise to come back here soon!

Threadknitted

With a rush of last-minute entries — mine included — Threadknits reached the end of the skein at midnight Tuesday.

RED threadknit
RED was my finale project. You can read about the process on my Threadknits submission page. This one is all mine.

So I wrote up, cast on, knit, cursed, frogged, knit some more, bound off, seamed, tweaked and embellished seven projects. You've heard all about most of them before either here, Facebook, Flickr or Threadless. A quick recap :

Sock Battle mittens
I finished the Sock Battle mittens the weekend before the deadline. I'm really happy with how I captured the characters created by Kasey Loman in her Threadless design. You can read more about them on the entry page. This one will head to the shop soon.

But enough about my stuff. I want to share some of my favorite entries in this contest. These knitters and crocheters just blew me away with their talent. (This is in no particular order.)



And this is just the tip of the iceberg. I could go on and on. Instead, I'm just going to tell you to head over to Threadknits gallery and check them out. Can you predict the winners?
