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!

Happy St. Nick's

Are your stockings hung by the chimney with care? My husband's is!

Stocking for the mister

I pulled several patterns and color charts together to design his mega Christmas sock. I created my own letter chart for bulky yarn and his name just fit! I'm not sure my name will be as lucky.

The specs:
Loom: 48-peg purple Knifty Knitter hat loom, regular gauge
Yarn: Katia Peru bulky in ruby, dark navy, olive green and mustard
Rows: 64 rows in the leg, (short-row heel), 30 rows in the foot, (short-row toe)

I haven't done much new knitting otherwise. I'm designing a poinsettia hat for myself and about halfway through a puppy hat for a friend's toddler boy. Maybe I'll knit a last-minute gift or two. I promised myself I wouldn't but well ... we'll see!

Speaking of, here's a perfectly honest video about Christmas knitting by Franklin Habit.

  3. Thank you!!! I love how it turned out. I put some specs up there for you. I might write up a pattern after I loom-knit one for myself. :-)
