I finished Romalee’s rainbow blanket just in time for her arrival yesterday!  The yarn is made of corn fiber which I thought was extra sweet because my brother-in-law is a corn farmer.  :)
Pattern:  Improvised
Yarn:  Kollage Yarns Corntastic

that is too adorable

I got a few asks about where to find the pattern for this coat, and I have to admit, I didn’t even think about it when I first reblogged this! I’m kind of an asshole for a knitter, because I usually just reblog knitted items for future reference, for example this one I would’ve made by finding a similar cable pattern and combining it to a basic long cardigan pattern. But! I did some research to find this pattern for you guys, so here’s what I found:
The pattern is “Kaide” by Norah Gaughan
It was published in Berroco’s pattern booklet 
Sadly, there is no way to purchase the pattern online, since it was only published in a physical booklet :(
But! I digged trough Raverly for a while and found some other awesome cabled cardigan patterns that have the similar awesomeness! Hope this will be helpful! :)

Welcome to Hexipuff Sunday number 47, 48, 49.775 hexipuffs.I was having calculation errors laying it out and then I was interrupted by my father figure coming home. So I had to quickly snap a photo and put all my hexipuffs away.Plus he was eating a canned tuna or salmon sandwich and I didn’t want my hexipuffs absorbing that smell.A couple weeks ago I saw a hexipuff knit along and the highest amount was 25 for the month of July. I jokingly said I could do 25 a week and I’m determined to do that. I have 2 weeks down, 3 more to go.At least I have the yarn and polyfil to hopefully fund this endeavour.

I may have taught this spider to knit. I was finishing the last 20 rows at the park, when this little spider wandered over to me, It climbed up my knitting bag, and walked all up and down the piece, then climbed onto my hand and watched me for a couple rows. After the second row it started waving it’s front four legs as if to get my attention. Once I was looking at it, it started pulling silk from its spinneret, and fiddling with it. I don’t know if it was knitting or purling as it was quite small scale, but every few seconds it would stop and look up at me to see if I was still watching. After a little bit I moved it to one of the vines overhanging the archway I was sitting in, and it went about its business.This wasn’t the only unusual thing that happened at the park today, but it was the most unusual.

Stripes, stripes, once again stripes. My stripey cardigan is finished!
I’d been eyeing this pattern for a long time. It’s so cute in the pattern photos but in many of the finished projects it looks like the collar is too wide, too high at the front but too low at the back.

Short rows to the rescue! My modification didn’t go exactly as I’d hoped but I love the result anyway. My favorite stripey cardigan!
