I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit, weave and have picked up the sticks to needle knit, too! My patterns page links to Ravelry and I will answer questions about those. Maybe someday I will be back to write more. We will see where life takes me.

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.


  1. I'm loving the sock!!!

    This is not Em saying this...

  2. What a beautiful stocking! You didn't say if it's loom or needle knit, or what yarn you used though...we want the specs, girl! ;D It really turned out gorgeous!

    What a funny video..thanks for sharing!

  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. :-)
