Here comes the freshly designed and hand-printed wedding invitations for Chelsea and Matt! Chelsea came to me and asked if I would be interested in designing wedding invitation for her. Hell yes! Sure I am interested! She likes a simple invitation with drawing of herself, Matt and their kitty. The best part of this project?

More... Leftovers Blanket: Mitered Corners (or Mitred Corners, if you prefer) I've had a few questions lately about how I knit the mitered corners for the Leftovers Blanket.
I needed something to post today to do more rounds of the solid colored bands, so I thought I'd start the next one and document the corner. You're welcome. This band is 18 stitches, knit on to the previous round like so: on the wrong side (WS), slip first stitch, knit to last stitch, slip stitch (sl 1), pick up & knit one from previous band, pass slipped stitch over (psso). Turn work, slip first stitch with yarn in front, knit to last stitch, knit through back loop.
Knit to corner of previous band, and begin short rows: On WS knit to last unwrapped stitch (in first row of short rows, knit to stitch attaching to previous band) wrap stitch and turn: bring yarn to front, sl 1, bring yarn to back, return slipped stitch to left needle, turn and knit to end. You will now begin to knit, picking up wraps. And, there you go. Knitting Crochet Sewing Crafts Patterns and Ideas! This Garter Ear Flap Hat was an engineering feat to get me back on my feet.

Instead, I spent January 1st in bed with the flu and its attendant fever, aches, chills, and delirium. Just as the worst was passing, Mother Nature blasted us with a Polar Vortex that I did not have the strength nor will to face. Cabin fever set in! Groggy from illness and stir-crazed from quarantine, I was determined to prove my health (and sanity), and so, making this hat became a triumphant product of my bruised spirit.
Still enamored with the ease of working short rows in garter stitch (as with my Knit Elbow Patches), I constructed this hat in one seamless piece using Purl Soho’s soft and lush Alpaca Pure. With my head toasty warm and back in full heath, that fresh-start feeling did arrive… just a little late this year. April 2006 Archives. Knees a-tremble?
