Herringbone Knit Socks



I have a lot of unfinished knitting projects, like these socks. The herringbone stitch is so fun to knit, especially with a variegated yarn. The pattern is from a book called Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn. The yarn I'm using is Patons Kroy in Winter Eclipse.

Cable Knit Blanket



I'm slowly making progress on a cable knit blanket I started a few years ago. It is the perfect project to work on when it starts getting to -20 or colder because it keeps me so toasty warm as I knit. The yarn I am using is Patons Shetland Chunky in Rich Teal.

How I Use Washi Tape

Some of my friends are confused by my obsession with washi tape because they have no idea what use it serves. Then I show them my planner. I use a Moleskine professional folio. It's basically a planner without dates so you can customize each page to be a day or a week or month. When I first bought this Moleskine, I started off using it with a specific purpose in mind that I soon abandoned for reasons I forget but it probably had something to do with glitter. Then a planner obsessed friend showed me pics of filofaxes she was finding filled with washi tape and stickers. I instantly wanted all the filofaxes in the world. But, with my tendency to get distracted by glitter, I didn't want to spend a lot of money on another planner that I would potentially abandon. That's when I decided to repurpose my Moleskine and washi tape was the perfect way to cover anything else I had previously written in it.

Aisle of Temptation Finds

A lot of stores have that one aisle right by the front that you have to go through to pay. I call it the Aisle of Temptation because I always end up buying something. Especially at Michael's. But it's super cute stuff so I don't feel bad. Today I got some washi tape and on another visit I got the bicycle stamp.
