KNITTED / the style eater

When winter rolls around, you can usually find me parked right here on this couch with a couple dozen skeins of yarn and a few sets of needles in various sizes.  There’s something about knitting that I find to be so calming and life-affirming, ya know?  Creating an actual usable item out of a ball of yarn?  Talk about a serious addiction.

I want to show you guys a few things I’ve been knitting recently.  Is that cool?  First up: beanies.  It took me a really long time to find an easy and quick way to make a beanie, but I think I’ve finally figured it out.  I’m a beanie machine now and can bust one out in under an hour.  Addicting, I tell you!!

    so cute!
    I see you’re not using circular needles – would you mind sharing where you found the pattern? I’ve been knitting for a while and haven’t found a nice quick way to knit a beanie yet.

    your blog is one of my favorites 🙂

      Thanks so much Kerry! In the photo, I’m actually knitting a blanket, not a beanie. Sorry that was deceiving ha! BUT, I do not use circular needles even to knit beanies. Although using circular needles is the easiest way to knit a beanie, I just use regular needles. Also, I did not use a pattern. It’s just something I made up totally randomly!!

    You look gorgeous. I love your blog photos and the edits on them. Do you use actions for post processing? Was wondering which ones if so. 🙂

      Thanks so much Sonia! These particular photos don’t have actions on them actually. Just some light photoshop editing. I do use actions a lot for other photos though and really love the Simon Filip ones. Thanks for reading!
