I finished my commissioned Fisherman's Rib Scarf!
The pattern I used for this scarf is Fisherman's Rib Muffler by Churchmouse Yarns. This is the second time I've used this pattern, the first was for my lil' bros WSU scarf and hat set. It's a super simple and easy knit.
Just an FYI for this stitch, it does stretch out a LOT after blocking, make sure to take that into consideration while working up this pattern. Before blocking my scarf was 62" long and after it was 85" long! Don't forget to swatch!
I used Swish yarn by KnitPicks in the colorways Squirrel Heather and Lost Lake Heather. It's a worsted weight superwash Merino Wool which knits up beautifully and is soft as butter.
This scarf heads overseas to his new home soon!
I've got one more commission to finish then I will be taking a break from custom order work for a while. I have a lot of pattern designs I really want to dive into and I've realized I don't have time to create original designs while cranking out tons of custom orders!
Are you still working on your Winter knits or are you ready to jump into Spring and Summer projects? I think I'll be in Winter mode for a while longer. Feel free to share what you're working on in the comments below!
Thanks for stopping by!
My commissioned knee high socks are finally complete!
I wanted to stop in and share some of my potential knits for the New Year. (I know I'm a little late but better late than never!) I've got quite a bit of design work I want to focus on in 2019 but I won't let that stop me from working on some of these beautifully designed projects. Without further ado, here are the gorgeous patterns that have been calling my name lately.
I wanted to stop in and share some of my current WIP's with you! After the holidays I received a lot of commission work so I've been knitting up a storm.

My Apple Cider Mitten pattern is live on the Ravelry!
Test knitting is going very well on my Apple Cider Mittens. My proposed release date for the pattern is Friday, December 14th, but if my test knitters keep working so fast I should be able to move it up!
I finished my Apple Cider Mitts pattern! I'm so excited for y'all to try these out, this is my first mitten pattern and I've worked hard to make this design as streamlined and user friendly as possible.
I know I don't share many recipes here these days since I'm so busy with the knitting, but I MUST share this magical recipe with you!
My update is LIVE! Head on over to my Etsy shop to check it out.
