knitted furniture

I have been toying with the idea of knitted furniture and home textiles lately. I love the idea of having a knitted quilt, knitted curtain, and maybe even a little knitted stool. I found this super cool article about knitted stools today. I’m thinking I need to get my hands on some panty hose. I don’t know if it would actually work but it might be worth a good try.

Ideas? Thought?

It’s a party!

Today I am having a blocking party with myself. My latest obsession has been vowels and I have knit exactly 5 of them in the past week or so.

These are the gems and I am so excited about them. I especially love my braided cable cowl (if anyone has a better name than that suggestions are being accepted).

I’m pretty sure these cowls will end up on my etsy shop (a work in progress) so I’m pretty stoked!

Late night musings

Sometimes I knit into the wee hours of the morning. It’s always a delightful experience because I get into “the zone.” Really it’s more like a zombified state because I literally can’t put my project down.

This is the Vergennes pullover from the Summer 2011 Knitscene.

I pulled apart a sweater that I bought at goodwill over break so this gem only cost me about $10. It is a wool, angora, silk blend and it is delightfully soft. I’m mostly excited that it is A dull shade of grey as I don’t have enough neutrals in my wardrobe… Wait, that’s all I have. I need to get to work on some colored knitting I guess.

Anyway, just thought I’d share my late night zombie musings.
