For whatever reason, I have more than a handful of people following this blog. I feel a little guilty because I can’t follow back since this is a secondary blog on my main Tumblr account. Because of this, I’ve made a new account so I can follow all of you lovelies back. It can be found here: http://littlepatchofgreen.tumblr.com/ I will leave this blog here, but from now on, all my...
Back from a week long trip to St. Louis with my oldest brother. Will post pictures of the squares I knitted while there later today or tomorrow. It’s good to be back home. :3

Includes patterns for knitting AND crocheting squares in different ways, as well as beanies, vests and so on. Awesome. I’ve been sick the past 3-4 days, so my knitting has fallen by the wayside, but this will help perk me back up. :3

thefinalmovement: Today I went to my first ever Beads and Craft meeting. To be completely honest, this craft was the reason I joined the club! You can do drop in as well, but I joined since it’s my last year there and it’ll act as my motivation to go since I already paid the membership. ;) So here is how I made it. First you make the stencils. It’s easy. Keep your next Starbucks sleeve and...

s1k1s1k1 asked: Beautiful colors! As for the kinks, you can soak your circulars in hot water to get the kinks out. Unless they're wood. Then soak just the connectors *really carefully.* :) You can also hang them up at the mid-point so the kinks will gradually fall out, but this will obviously not work if you're using them. Or if you have cats that like to bite through metal. :)
Anonymous asked: One way to get the bend out of your circular needles is to hold them over boiling water. The steam helps relax the cord! I suppose if you're in a hurry you could straighten the cord, protect it with a cloth, then run a quick iron over 'em, but I haven't tried that yet so I don't know how it'd go :) Best of luck with your cowl!
