I’ve had this Stylecraft Cabaret for a while in a few different colourways. It’s gorgeous, but I either had no ideas or too many ideas to know exactly what I was going to do with it. Then I decided to make some ocean-themed mitts (instead of the cowl I’d originally tried lol).
I’ve been wanting to knit myself a few cardigans for quite some time as I struggle to get nice clothing in my size.
After getting past the heel on both socks (I worked two at a time on different needle sets so I wouldn’t get second-sock-syndrome), I’ve decided I really don’t like these and there’s not much point in making socks for myself anyway. (I barely wear them.)
I’m going to frog these and use the yarn for something else.
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.
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…
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.
