2022 Temperature Shawl

I recently became aware of temperature scarves and blankets where each row is the temperature of a day and the project lasts the entire year. This makes the whole project 365 rows long which makes a great length for a project. Since I live in an area of rapid climate shifts, I thought this would be cool to show in knitting. It’s a fun way to capture how it can be a high of 28°F one day and then watch it increase to a high of 72°F the next. Cleveland is a weird place y’all. But instead of doing a scarf or a blanket, I decided to do a shawl! This seemed like a fun idea because the number of stitches in a row increases and keeps count with the day. Although I’m a little worried about what it will look like at the end of the year! Below is the pattern for the shawl I plan to use so for those knitters out there, join me to make a fun 2022 project! Continue Reading →

Knitted Meeple

Looking around the internet, I couldn’t find any patterns for knitted meeples that I really liked. So, the next logical step, was to make my own! This patterned turned out to be much more complex than I had anticipated, and I made some extra work for myself by trying to avoid sewing but I’ll get into that later. I absolutely love the result and it’s such a great accent piece and mini pillow! I can’t wait to accidentally leave it somewhere and find my cat trying to fit perfectly on top of it. The estimated time for this project is probably not accurate because I knitted this over several days. Continue Reading →
