FREE PATTERN: Carol Corps Mitts

As many of you probably know, I’m a little obsessed with certain Marvel comics characters. One of them is the recent incarnation of Captain Marvel (aka Carol Danvers), as written by Kelly Sue Deconnick. My friend Lindsey (who may be reading this, I don’t know, if so, Lindsey, sorry for […]

FO: Bowties are Cool

While obviously not the “nerdiest” thing I’ve ever knit, these are the most recent nerdiest thing I’ve knit, and I delight in them. The pattern is Bowties are Cool, a free sock knitting pattern by Mandie Harrington. The stitch pattern is delightfully easy to memorize and really very quick to […]

FO: Gemini Tee

Look another finished thing! And I finished a pair of socks this week so there should be another FO post soon! Which is good news because there also needs to be a series of WIP posts so that I will freaking finish things and not just keep adding to the […]

FO: Puffy Scarf

I have been on a yarn-crafting RAMPAGE this month. In trying to keep my mind focused on not bringing yarn home and instead knitting with what I have, I’ve been tallying all the yards out of finished projects. I’ll post a final tally at the end of the month, with […]

FO: Iðunn Sweater

And finally in the latest parade of finished objects is my Iðunn Sweater. So I love this sweater. Love it. Am quite cross with the weather for being entirely too warm for this sweater. If you look at the original pattern, you’ll see I did add some modifications. My mods […]

I… can’t remember how it happened exactly, but I came across the a Puff Stitch crochet scarf/cowl pattern and immediately fell in love. I babbled about it on Twitter, and Jacinta (@jacintillating) got on board […]

FO: Lilac Wine

Another overdue post! This is what happens when I can’t manage to photograph anything in a timely manner. They all get backed up together. This is also what happens when you’re not paying attention to the number of stitches you cast on. Because the tubular cast on is a bit […]

Welcome to the new blog site!

Here we are at the new and maybe one day improved Threadpanda.com! As I mentioned on the old blog, I haven’t had much to write about. I am working on my Lilac Wine cowl and it’s coming along quite well. It’s a bunch of 1×1 ribbing, so not terribly thrilling […]

Sweaterday: Swimming Along

I made a lot of progress on my I∂unn sweater this week. I brought four balls of yarn (which miraculously arrived the night before I left—a mailperson dropped them off around 7 PM, well after my regular mail had been delivered—I’m not sure what happened there), and knit all four […]
