Knitting Christmas Gifts

Hello Friends,


I am back from exams! it is such a busy time of the year.  I really missed posting on the blog and I also really missed knitting while I was studying! I finished my exams early last week and I have been working pretty much full time with very little time to knit or post on here but tonight I have some time to catch up.  I am currently knitting up my boyfriend's Christmas present which is a black scarf to match the black hat I knitted him last year! he has been wearing the hat I knitted him a lot and I even end up borrowing it quite often when I am cold and without my own :P it has come in quite handy for both of us!
Here's how it looks so far: the yarn I am using for the scarf is Lion Brand: Thick and Quick Wool ease. Color black.

Scarf progress

I have also started knitting the socks for my mom using a very nice mustard color wool.  I am following very pink knits pattern. I downloaded it from her website.  It is coming in handy again while I am knitting I can watch the videos she posted along with the pattern.
Here is a photo of them so far:  I am using Loops & Threads: 1st Kiss. Gold color.

Sock progress

I am almost done my Christmas shopping I have bought so much for family and my boyfriend Liam.  I love to spoil them at this time of the year! It is fun to shop for others and to think of how they might enjoy what you buy for them.  'Tis the season!

I just bought Pentatonix’s Christmas album tonight called “That’s Christmas to Me” and I have had their hit song “that’s Christmas to me” in my head all night.  It is such a beautiful song and I cannot wait to listen to all the songs on the album!  They have such a lovely sound when they sing together.  They even have a very nice version of “let it go” from Frozen.


I hope you are all enjoy the holiday season!  Thank you for visiting J

I'll be away for a little while...

Hello Friends,


I just wanted to let you know that in the next two weeks I will not be posting much because I have final exams and final assignments to finish up.  As much as I would rather be knitting and posting on my blog I do have to put all my efforts into finishing up projects and studying.  I will be done December 9th and will be posting more after that! thank you for following my blog and keeping up with my posts I really appreciate it :)

Take care,

Friday Favorites: November 21st

Hello Friends,

I hope you are all doing well and working on finishing up all those Holiday gifts.  I have a couple projects on the go that I need to get knitted up for Christmas with so little time! I am also approaching finals and studying and trying to complete assignments that are due in the next two weeks.  It is definitely the busiest time of the year.  Well I have taken some time out however to bring to you some of my favorites this week when I did have a spare moment to browse Pinterest (which I always do!).  Hope you like them!


1. Hedgehog mittens! these are so adorable I would probably be spending more time playing with them like puppets :)

2.  Crochet cat bed! I think that my two cats would love hanging out in this crocheted cat bed! I have one cat named Moo that loves crawling into things and under blankets he would LOVE this.

 3.   I love the idea of knitting a blanket with only ten stitches at a time.  This pattern by Frankie Brown on Ravelry shows us how we can knit a zigzag blanket by only knitting ten stitches at a time! and it's a free pattern download! :)

4.  I just love the look of these cozy crocheted slippers from the blog 2 Create in color.  They would be so nice to wear around the house!  visit the blog for a photo tutorial and pattern :)

5.   I like the idea of these knitted boot toppers from Fitzbirch crafts.  I think that would look so cute and keep those legs warmer in the cold winter months.

6. Christmas tree ornaments with the pattern on Ravelry.  These look fun and quick to knit up to decorate the Christmas tree!

Knitted First Pair of Socks!

Hello Friends,


I am so excited to announce that I have finished the magic loop socks that I have been working on for quite some time now!  I used Very Pink Knits video tutorial to knit them using my magic loop needles.  I will definitely be buying the pattern because I love knitting socks on magic loop! I will be starting some socks for my mom shortly and I feel good now that I have finished one pair to move on to a second pair as a gift. Below are a couple photos of how the socks turned out :)









The next socks I will be knitting are for my mom and I will be knitting a longer cuff of course.  The first pair were practice and focused on learning the more important aspects of knitting socks like turning the heel.  I highly recommend Staci’s videos from Very Pink Knits if you want to learn to knit the socks too because her instructions are very clear.   The socks are so warm and I am wearing them around the house already! it was perfect timing to finish them because it’s colder now and my feet are constantly freezing.  

Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you have a great day :)
