Moving Day

Hey everyone-

Knitty Me is now Knitting Factor. For real this time. I mean it. Seriously.

Hope to see you there!



Picture this: I’m sitting on the couch happily knitting the baby blanket. My 3 1/2 year old niece is sitting on the other end of the couch watching (Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?) Spongebob Squarepants. I turn my head to see what she is doing and see my ball of yarn sitting there between us, patiently waiting to be made a part of this beautiful blanket, and next to it I see this:


…my niece holding this tangled web of yarn. “Uh…what are you doing?” I ask calmly. “I’m knitting” she replies simply. Oh.


The Sublime scarf is finished! “Mary has a finished object?” the crowd asks.

Why yes, yes I do!


Megan taught me to bind off, Alyssa showed me how to make the fringe, and presto! It’s a beautiful, luxurious, heavely scarf. LOVE it.

Nervous Knitting

I’m so stressed out I’m knitting on top of mistakes.  I have 4 safety pins in the baby blanket and I don’t care because it’s the only thing keeping me sane right now.  What I could really use is a yarn shopping spree.  That would make me feel better, I just know it.  Something along the lines of this.

The luxurious Sublime scarf is nearly finished:

And the Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino Feather and Fan baby blanket

is coming along well:

Baby Blanket

About half way up the blanket you can see I start making fewer mistakes…

but that’s what learning is about, right? It’s my first pattern and I love the

old-fashioned look of it. At first I was hesitant to do something so traditional

but I think it fits here. Plus, they don’t know the sex of the baby yet. So that’s

old fashioned too!


I’m looking for a potholder pattern I saw in a book or magazine. Which book? Which magazine, you ask? I don’t know! I can’t remember! And it’s driving me crazy. I wanted to knit them up for Father’s Day because they were man-appropriate potholders, know what I mean? Sigh.

Know of any cool knitted potholder patterns?

I’m in love with this sweater from Kim Hargreaves:


And it comes in a kit! Plus, the dog is so cute.
I want to live in this picture.
I want to be as thin as the model in this picture. ;o)

Well do ya, punk?

Love the knitting t-shirts over at Knitiot, especially this one:
