IMG_0227I did this over a week ago, but I’m just now blogging it.  Bad blogger!

I finally got around to writing up the pattern for the Chicabean Scarf.

You can find it here:

I wasn’t going, but I got a couple of requests and is was pretty easy since I’d already done that hat. I really love both of these patters. I’ll definitely be knitting more cables and lace combos!

Happy knitting!

IMG_0282I know I know! I shoulda been knitting Christmas gifts but I just HAD to have one of these for my very own. Plus I needed to make sure my notes on the decreases were right. They were! I luuuuuuv this so much!


  • Cast On: November 17, 2007
  • Weaving In: November 18, 2007
  • Pattern: My own based on a stitch pattern the Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns
  • Needles: Size 7 Bryspun circular and double points
  • Yarn: KnitPicks Swish Superwash in Merlot Heather, I used one and just a tiny bit of the second ball.
  • For me!


I blocked the green one before I took pics, but I didn’t block this one. I think the Swish Superwash is a bit thicker than the Cascade, but they both look great!

The pattern is up Get it Here, Ravelry peeps queue it up here. Thank you to Helen and Lara, who assured me it was ok to write it. I really love this hat and pattern I’m so happy I was able to write it and share! If you make this hat I’d love it if send me a picture or a link! I want do a gallery of other peoples FO’s for it. I’m supa proud of this pattern.

The concert on Wednesday was great. It was so nice to be out and doing something different. I even got spotted by one of my Ravelry friends, she didn’t say anything to me when she saw me but sent me a message later. Very cool, it’s like I’m famous. Or is that infamous? 😉

I was lucky enough to get Thursday night off so I’ve had some time to work on knitting. I started the Hemlock Ring Blanket, and also a started the Melon Pattern lace scarf from Victorian Lace Today and I’m itching to start another scarf with the yarn I showcased yesterday, probably the Myrtle Leaf Shawl. I guess I have startitis.


You Don’t Know Our Women Hat

Ok the pattern is written and up! This is my first time writing a pattern so please let me know if there are any suggestions or corrections. I do really love this hat and I can’t wait for it to cool off enough for me to wear it. As with any variegated yarn the pool is always and issued. I ripped the ribbing twice before saying f’ it, the top will pool differently anyway. Add it to your Ravelry queue here

I’ll put putting a patterns section in the sidebar with a link to this and maybe eventually more patterns.
