Color Blocked Infinity Scarf

I haven't been blogging a whole lot lately, but I've been knitting like crazy.

I just keep thinking of more and more knitted accessories I'd love to bring with me to Europe this winter.  Normal things like hats and scarves, but also wintertime skating-related things like a million different legwarmers.

I've got one pair of legwarmers on my needles at the moment, as well as my Antrorse sweater for the Very Shannon Summer Sweater Knit Along, a headband for a birthday present, and I just bound off this color blocked infinity scarf yesterday.

I've never had so many knitting projects going all at once before, and I'll be the first to admit that it's getting out of hand.  But I'm just so excited that fall is finally here!

This particular scarf was a really quick knit on giant needles with thick and cuddly yarn from my stash.  I didn't use a pattern; I just made it up as I went along.

Antrorse sweater knitting update

My Antrorse sweater is suddenly a wearable garment!  And it fits!  I'm so, so, sooooo excited about it.

By "suddenly" I actually mean "painstakingly gradually" given that I've worked on this project every single day for a month.  But that long stretch of time made it all the more shocking when I realized I had finally finished the body this afternoon.

Now that I've tried it on, I can't wait to get going on the sleeves because then it will actually be finished and ready to wear out in the world!

Tips for hosting a successful craft party

My friends and I have started doing monthly craft nights, and they're so much fun!  We rotate who is hosting, and the host picks the craft project for the evening.  Last week was my week to play host, and I thought I'd share with you guys what I've learned from it.

DIY Ombre Headband

Welcome to the 3rd installment in the One T-Shirt, Three DIYs miniseries!

The first two projects in the miniseries were a hand-stamped headband and a beach-ready crop top, and all three of these projects can be made using a single old t-shirt.

Today's project is the quickest one in the series, with only a minute or two of hands-on crafting.  (But it does involve a couple hours of hands-off drying time; so don't forget to factor that into your schedule.)

Work in Progress: Antrorse Sweater

It's been a week or so since I started knitting an Antrorse sweater in conjunction with the Very Shannon Summer Sweater Knit Along, so I thought I'd give you guys an update on my progress.

I started with 6 skeins of Blue Sky Alpacas worsted cotton yarn and a lot of anxiety.  If I'm honest, I know that I do better with small, quick knits, and I wasn't sure how I'd do with such a big project.  (And I'm actually still wondering...)
