Knitting projects

Basketweave Blanket

This is a huge throw that I’ve been knitting as my brothers’s housewarming gift.

This is a super easy knit and is a free pattern. I used bigger needles (US9 while I usually use US7) to get the flow for a throw. I was also requested backing for this (which was a first). Since my mother is visiting she helped me out with choosing a backing and sewing it in.


5 skeins of Pumpkin (caron simply soft yarn)

knitting circular needles (US size9)

Finished dimensions: 36X60”

Backing from Jo Ann in soft and comfy fabric and hand-sewed onto the blanket. This is so soft I cant explain.

Hope you are having a great weekend. Dont forget to join my instagram giveaway which is only till 1159am tomorrow


Knitting projects

Lace Knitted Scarf

I am in love with Lace knitting right now and this has been an ongoing project for quite a while.

This is a free pattern by PurlSoho and it is called the wedding shawl. It is super nice. I like that it was challenging as a beginner  to lace knitting initially but after a few repeats I could memorize it.



Alpaca with a Twist Socrates fingering weight yarn

Size 2 circular knitting needles.


This needed a nice blocking session to show off all the lace.


Enjoy and have a great weekend.
