For Me Made May this year I sewed a total of . . . are you ready for it? Nothing! However, I do have two handmade items to share with you that I sewed back in March and April. I also sewed some imperfect masks that you can read about at the bottom. PROJECT BREAKDOWN…

Corona Bunny

I knit a pink stuffed bunny a long time ago for a baby-to-be, and I always planned to knit another one for me and my family. I had used a pattern that wasn’t especially fun to knit and that had required a lot of sewing. This time around, I used a far better pattern, and…

Diaphanous Raglan

The number one reason I had to knit this pattern was for the sheer sleeves. Bishop/balloon sleeves are my favorite long sleeve right now. Make them sheer, and I throw my hands up in surrender. Hence, when the Diaphanous Raglan pattern was released, I added it to my queue pronto. PROJECT BREAKDOWN Pattern: Diaphanous Raglan…

Baby Yoda

The Great Christmas Hat-a-thon

In the two weeks leading up to Christmas, I cranked out four hats for gifts for my husband’s family. Earlier in the season I also knit a hat for a friend, as well as a hat for a newborn. That’s six hats! Below are the details for each hat. Be sure to let me know…

The Sophie Sweater: A New Free Kids’ Pattern

With both shame and pride, this is one of those completely spontaneous projects that arose from a KAL. I’ve gotten much better at knitting only my new designs and planned projects, but when I saw pictures of the Knit Collage Fall KAL for 2019 floating around on Instagram, I really could not help myself. I…

Autumn Love Note

Does this top qualify as a Halloween sweater since it’s knit in an orange color and it’s almost trick-or-treat time? Either way, this is about as close as it gets for me when it comes to dressing up for Halloween. I’ve been seeing Love Note sweaters regularly in my Instagram feed ever since the design…
