    RSBSY Winter KAL - Sweater Weather

    If you guys have been following us on Instagram and Facebook you would know that we have recently dyed up a huge batch of Superwash Worsted in a variety of colours. We can’t seem to get enough of the all the fabulous sweater patterns that are out right now! It should be no surprise, then, that our winter KAL would be sweater themed.

    The KAL will run from February 1st, 2018 to March 31st, 2018 and the prizes will be announced on April 4, 2018 and will be chosen by a random generator. Join our Rav group and post a picture of your finished object on this thread by midnight on March 31st, 2018 in order to qualify. I guess I don’t have to state the obvious but, just to be sure, your sweater must be knit with at least one skein of RSBSY in order to qualify for the prizes and be included in our “Round Up” blog post.

    New Year, New Plans, New Cast Ons

    So this list of nine new projects took me a lot longer to put together than I thought it would. It is more of a dream list because lets face it, there is very little knitting time in my life at the moment and I am not too sure if that will change. There is also a huge pile of wips that have to be finished up but more on that in another post.

    Stop by the blog and see what I have been dreaming about

  • Mrs. Claus Boxy Hat Kit!

    Mrs. Claus Boxy Hat Kit!

    Guys look what I made! I'm so happy with the way Mila's Mrs. Claus Boxy Hat turned out! 

    To be honest, this wasn't the plan.  Originally the plan was these very beautiful colour work hats that both girls were going to get with cardigans this Christmas.  It turns out that colour work raises my blood pressure and triples the contents of my swear jar.  I really need to embrace the fact that, for right now, two handed knitting sits just outside of my patience threshold.  After realizing I had switched pattern rows halfway through a round, I had to park that project for a moment when I have less going on.  Like in February... 2000 never.

    Honestly I'm grateful because this was exactly what I needed.  Brainless knitting that makes me feel like I've actually accomplished something at the end of the day.  Even if the Christmas cardigans turn out to be more of a New Years cardigans at least they'll have something adorable to open Christmas morning.
