Snowman Draught Excluder

I’d been wracking my brain for something to make for my (late) grandparents for Christmas 2018. Everything I’d tried so far, from a double-knit gingerbread house potholder to crocheted leaf-shaped placemats, was now in the frogged section of my projects (or deleted entirely). And then I found the perfect gift!

Striped Mitts

I had some yarn left over from my nephew’s Dinosaur Blanket set, and what better to do with it than to make some fingerless mitts for my friend who has a January birthday and lives in Boston in the ol’ US of A?

Peony Socks

I’ve been trying to knit socks since October 2019, when Emma over at Puddleside Musings sent me some gorgeous Kool-Aid yarn that tickled my obsession with watermelons. I did not get far and decided to use the yarn for something else.

Snowy Cat Mittens

I was looking for something I could include in KitKat’s 7th birthday giveaway on Instagram. This pattern came up but I went with Labby instead. Except that I still wanted to knit these mittens, no matter what. Maybe they’ll be for my Crazy Cat Lady Secret Santa this year…

Dumbledog the Draught Excluder

I saw this pattern a while ago and earmarked it as a gift for… someone. I finally know who I’m making it for; let the party commence!

Confetti Mitts

Emma over at Puddleside Musings has sent me a few hanks of hand-dyed yarn over the last couple of years. I’ve had vague ideas for them but then it came to April and I realised how Eastery this yarn (which her mum dyed and called Confetti Cake) looks. I decided it would make great spring-time fingerless mitts.

Totoro Mittens

I like knitting things like mittens even though I can’t use them myself. When I saw this pattern, I immediately added it to the list of things I could make for Emma over at Puddleside Musings. (Totoro and sloths are two of the things I know she likes.)

Labby the Angry Cat

Another pattern that I just had to make as soon as I saw it! And since we were hosting a giveaway for KitKat’s 7th birthday, I decided this would be the perfect opportunity.

Madeline Cardigan

I’ve been wanting to knit myself a cardigan or a sweater for a long time, now. Well, it’s more like I struggle to find clothing in my size, and knitting my own seemed like the next best option.
