#yarnLoveChallengeDay20 is #handmadeHome I tend to knit a lot of knitwear and not a lot of home items. But there was that one time in 2009, when I bought 12 skeins of @lionBrandyarn homespun, cast-on a ton of stitches on the longest circular needle I had and knit garter for what felt like infinity. I knit it as one piece and I was monogamous at the time, so I literally carried it around in a tote bag, lol! It was worth it though, as I am sitting underneath it right now as I type this.

Day 6 of #yarnLoveChallenge is Mistakes. With knitting, it is hard to consider anything a true mistake as it is so easy to reclaim your yarn and re-knit it until you no longer consider it a mistake. The fixability and portability of knitting are what make it my favorite craft! This hat started out as a fingering held double hat, but the gorgeous colors were muddled and the stitch pattern was lost. I frogged it ๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ and Dex and I couldn't be happier with the 2nd try! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ˜ yarn is @threeirishgirlsyarn in the North Shore colorway from @yarnharborduluth http://ift.tt/2klkTHp
