more snow! and some fun links!

my internet has been spotty the past few days from all the snow we've gotten in fayetteville, but i've managed to grab some here and there to put this post together!

i've been using my phone to browse the internet, and Gayle just shared this link to Rachel Denbow's blog with me! doesn't this look like so much fun!? maybe it'll help me get over my fear of sewing machines, and i'll be able to make some super cute stuff from it!
and as you can probably tell, i've been itching to pick up my embroidery again! maybe i'll have something fun to post soon ;)

and speaking of something to post soon.... i'm working on a tutorial for casting on two-at-a-time top-down socks! a cast on that's perfect for something like this:
that's right, blogland, these are toe-less and heel-less socks (and as soon as i try out top-down two-at-a-time socks with a cuff, i'll post about that too)! because, why would you make socks this gorgeously long just one at a time, on double points?

ravelry link, from this fantastic pattern book

and scout's honor, this tutorial is coming soon!

also, has anyone tried out this site? it kinda seems like a more general ravelry, but i can't quite get the hang of how it works. do any of you use this? do you like it?

i'm so enjoying all this extra crafting/knitting/gaming time, it's truly wonderful. just like winter break part 2!

stay safe out there, blogland, it's a dangerous world.

  1. I am excited about the tutorial - knitting two very long socks one after the other on dpns sounds tedious for sure!
