Friday Finds

Another Friday! Hope you had a wonderful week, and have a great weekend.

  • Big and little hearts make up the repeating pattern on this adorable hat from Lindsay Ingram. Knit your own I Carry Your Heart for that particular upcoming holiday, or just because.

  • Kamilla Svanlund’s Olivia mittens are gorgeous! I love the sort of abstract, nature-y design on the back of the hands.

  • Like Knitty’s Froot Loop socks? Now you can have gloves to match, courtesy of Natasha Sills.

  • Another excellent tutorial from Allyson at the Sweatshop of Love, this time on knitting two sleeves at once.
  • Got sock yarn scraps? The inimitable Elinor at Exercise Before Knitting gives a quick run-down—including some math, but don’t panic, you can do it—on how to use up the last of your scraps.
  • The lovely NΓ³tt pullover by Dora Stephensen is lovely in its simplicty—your basic raglan with varying stripes and a cowlneck makes for a perfect “wear everywhere” sweater.

  • A new sock pattern by Jeannie Cartmel: Complicated.

  • Speaking of socks (this has been a sock-heavy Friday Finds, hasn’t it?), Alice at Socktopus has written a treatise (okay, more of a manifesto… or just a list, whatever) about why she loves handknit socks. And I agree whole-heartedly with every point she made. And wish I had more hours in the days to knit more socks. It’s a sickness.

  1. Great post! I also loved the Socktopus one you linked to, thank-you for that. I’m on a sock obsessed knitting binge at the moment, so this was perfect.

      • Well, you haven’t enticed me to learn just yet – but I now do feel bad that I don’t know how. You are prompting me to sew my own buttons and hems – I think it’s a step in the right direction!

        • Aww, you shouldn’t feel bad! There’s no reason you “should” know how to knit. I was just teasing you, silly! πŸ˜€

          Sewing buttons and hems is a very good thing indeed!

          • No, not bad in a “you’re making me feel bad” sort of way. I mean bad in a “I feel like I’m missing out the fun” sort of way.
            It’s all good – there’s time yet!

            • There is indeed still time! And perhaps the next time we’re on the same continent, I can show you the basics. πŸ™‚
