A Knitshameful Decor

Knitshaming is kind of like dog shaming, but for knitters. The horde of yarn without a purpose. Half finished projects we have no intention of returning too. That beautiful leftover skein of yarn we set down for just a moment and then totally forget about…

I ain’t ashamed of no knitshame.

More than just a logo.

I started working on this sweater so long ago that I don’t even remember why I had decided to design it for Megan-Anne. Maybe it was for her birthday or something to empower her for a particularly hard final, neither of us can remember. But, I’ve been patterning and crocheting it sporadically between other projects and now it’s nearly finished!

Doesn’t Megan-Anne look adorable? Even if she requested I keep her face out of the pic. Apparently, she is only allowed to be photographed after two hours of hair…

Mislaid Projects

Knitshaming is kind of like dog shaming, but for knitters. The hordes of yarn without purpose. That beautiful single skein of yarn we can’t do anything with, but refuse to let go. Half finished project we have no intention of returning too that collect dust somewhere, because we never know… We might totally come back to that one day. Maybe tomorrow.

But, probably not.

Tiny Ball of Knitshame

I ran into the idea of knitshaming on Kelly Without a Net while wandering the internet. It’s kind of like dog shaming, but for knitters. This Monday’s knitshaming happened over the weekend.

After brunch Sunday morning, Megan and I emptied all of our Cascade 220 onto her living room floor to sort through for Geek-A-Long. (You can catch a glimpse of the week 2 square in the bottom left hand corner.) During this process, we quickly discovered a surplus of tiny yarn balls. As is protocol, none of them were the same…

The First Annual Geek-A-Long

Come with me, my friends. Let’s knit a mysterious, geeky blanket together. 

Each Sunday in 2014 we’ll* post a double sided knitting pattern for a geek themed 10″ x 10″ square. After 48 weeks (and squares), we’ll post how to turn them into a blanket and end 2014 feeling really awesome about ourselves. It will be the greatest mystery knit-along of all time or at least until 2015.

I’m getting tingly just thinking about it.

Now, you might be asking yourself, “What the heck is a knit-along?” A knit-along (or KAL) is an event where people get together to knit for…
