Battstravaganza!

Friday, August 12th, 2011

I got a wild hair this week and went on a carding bender. Since I’ve been meaning to set up a separate shop for Art Club (aside from etsy), I figured may as well do it now, with all these pretty new cuckoobatts, huzzah! Most of them are big fat jumbo batts, 3 – 4 […]

August Sweater, WIP, Yarn School, Batts & a shiny new egg!

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

YARN: 5 balls Knit Picks Andean Silk PATTERN: Generic top-down raglan with lace panel, short sleeves, 1×1 ribbing at collar, cuffs & hem NOTES: No shaping. I wish I had shaped the waist.

Bunchy Munchie + New batts

Saturday, March 1st, 2008

Battier

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

Finished up a final batch of ’07 batts last night. Now, back to knitting!  I should have some FOs soon!  I’d better. Yikes. It’s getting late…
