Blog Week in Review: 1/21-1/28

Standard

It’s time for yet another Blog Week in Review. Once again, we’re pretty heavy in the accessories- ya’ll have got to finish your beautiful garments!

First up, there’s Pretty Little Fiber Co.’s amazing Spruce Forest Shawl. I love the colorway- it looks like it has just a hint of blue or grey, which gives the project a little something more than all of those white or off-white shawls. Plus, it looks HUGE. Definitely comfy and warm for these cold days we’ve been having!

I love Twisted Stitcher’s colorwork beret. I always think that colorwork anything is amazing, probably because I can’t actually do my own colorwork, but this one really is special. I promise!

Keeping with the colorwork theme, there’s Cloudberry’s Nuthatch Mittens. They have little birds on them! Even though it’s definitely a winter pattern, it seems so full of life. She definitely did justice to it!

The one garment that I did find was Knit the Hell Out’s Grey Sky. Apparently the silly lady had this wonderful project sitting in her UFO pile for over a year! I’m glad I finally got to see the FO, because it is gorgeous- the prefect blend of fashionable and comfort.

Before I sign off, I just wanted to let you guys know  a secret: BULKY WOOL KNITS UP VERY QUICKLY! How do I know this? I guess you’ll just have to come back on Wed. to check out my current WIP, which seems to be knitting itself. Maybe the elves are coming out at night and knitting me a sweater!

  1. Thanks for the mention Michelle – and yup, Spruce Forest is HUGE. I’ve worn it during outings and even naps – it’s warm and cozy. I must say it’s my new favorite piece!
