I’ve been knitting like crazy, but I had to step away from the knitting for a little bit. I can’t see my chart.

This is another Kerfuffle Cowl, this time in Knit Picks Swish Tonal; the colors are Inkwell and Pearlescent. I should be able to get two cowls out of the two skeins of yarn, but I may have to reverse the colors for the second one. The scale will tell me when I’m done with the first one! Do you use a kitchen scale for your knitting? It’s really helpful for me when I’m designing and need to know if I have enough yarn for what I have planned.

I’ve also been doing a little crochet lately. Just chain stitch. I’ve been making beaded bracelets, and I’m going to lead a workshop on these at Twisted on November 10, noon to 2 p.m. We made some of these at a birthday gathering of Crafty Moms on Sunday, and everyone did great, even the non-crocheters. Come to class and see how!

And the moment you’ve all been waiting for: The winners of the stitch markers are Katnipon and Judi. Congratulations! I’m emailing the winners.

I wish I had enough stitch markers for everyone. Here are links to my tutorials if you want to make beaded stitch markers of your own:

Stitch markers made with wire pins (flat head or eye pins)

Stitch markers made with flex wire

Have fun!

  1. I see the kitty was being helpful 😉 Love the beaded bracelets! Are non-crocheters welcome at the workshop at Twisted? At some point I’ll have to take a crochet class, too!

  2. I really can’t believe I’m one of the lucky winners! Thank you! I sure wish I could attend this but I’m going to recommend it to my sister who lives more locally. (My cats are always “helpful” in just the same way!)

  3. Someone is resting. You can knit later. ;^)

  4. I love love love your crocheted jewelry. I’ve got to figure out how to do it myself!
    My new home is:

  5. Awwww! (then) Oooooo!

  6. What a beautiful cowl, bracelets and cat! I wish I had a knitting companion as soft and fluffy as yours. My 15yo daughter likes to snuggle up to me while I knit but, it’s not the same. lol

    I use a small postal scale to weigh my yarn & it works great!
