I’ve been knitting & crocheting my ass off for presents this season for a few reasons: I love it, I’m broke, & I have a ton of horded crafty supplies up in here.
**WARNING** These items are made from wool yarn. I have a lot of it in my stash & also buy it at Goodwill & whatnot. I have major issues with acrylic because I think it is shitty for the environment & creepy. Please don’t hate me!
If you knit and/or crochet, I highly recommend signing up with Ravelry, if you haven’t already. It has an IMMENSE wealth of patterns (tons for free!), knowledge, & inspiration. The following link might not work if you are logged in to Ravelry.
I made a shitload of these fingerless mitts for people. I can do them without the pattern now too, which is a first for me! I kind of want some for myself, but feel my hands need some TLC & a vacation. They’re really easy if you know how to use double pointed needles. Everything is really basic & even though they can be made in 3 different sizes, they’re stretchy enough to allow a lot of wiggle room.
I also made another pair of blue ones & a teal pair that I didn’t take a picture of, as well as a scarf for my friend, Sage, in Sweden. It’s the first time I’ve sent something overseas, so I was really anal about packaging it up & getting it ready, then I realized I hadn’t taken any photos of it. Oh well. Maybe she’ll send me some of her wearing it!
