Melissa  Forever addicted to coffee, colour & chocolate. I knit, sew, bake, and make sad attempts at cooking.

Knit, knit, knit!! 🧶

Taken a few days ago when the fam jam & I stopped in Duncan for a quick rest (aka donut break! 🍩) and you know, get your photo taken with the world’s largest hockey stick and puck! 😛

Knitting, sunshine, & the open road! 💕 It’s so hard to get through the work day when you’ve had such a wonderful weekend!! I think winter is finally behind us & I’m looking forward to more time outside in the sun!
💕 Happy Monday, Friends!! 💕

Hello, Old Friend! ✨

This is the year I get old WIPs off the needles! So instead of casting on a new sock I’m attempting to finish this pair of double knitting socks that I started 3 years ago!! 😳 Double knitting, as I’m knitting both socks at the same time, one inside the other!!
🙃
Pattern: Mirror Socks by @kateatherleyknits
Yarn: both by @sweetgeorgia

New Beginnings ✨

I’m sad to say that I haven’t been knitting as much lately, so I thought I’d fix that by casting on something new! 😁 What better way to brighten up a knitty day than with hot pink? 🙃💕

Cold Weather Shenanigans ✨

I actually took this photo Friday night but then got distracted watching Forensic Files & forgot to post it, but it’s pretty much what I’ll be doing when I get off work later today. 🙃 Stay warm my Friends!! 💕

WIP Wednesday ✨

I was super excited this morning when I saw just how close I was to finishing the second half of my Rainbow Ribbon Wrap. Well, until a dreadful sinking feeling came over me. Yep, I didn’t reverse the colour sequence and will now have to rip back alllllll the way back to the grey 🤦🏻‍♀️ Goodbye weeks and weeks of knitting!! 😳

Winding Down 2018 ✨

I whipped up this pussyhat ornament at the very, very last minute (thanks, Ravelry pattern highlights!!). I guess I felt weird about not knitting that much this year & therefore not having that many FOs to show? 🤷🏻‍♀️ Well, this is officially the last FO of the year. Just in time too, we’re taking down our Christmas tree & decorations today because I like starting a new year with a clean house. 🥴 I’m going to be sad to see the decorations come down.

Top 9 of 2018 ✨

Curiosity got the better of me & I couldn’t resist finding out what my top 9 photos of 2018 were. 🤓 I’ve also discovered that I didn’t post that many photo this year (probably because I wasn’t knitting as much!! 😳). I sure loved my rainbow themed knits and bright pops of colour this year! I can’t wait to see what 2019 brings!! 🙃

Late Night Shenanigans ✨

I was determined to squeeze in a little knitting last night, regardless of what time it was. Well, mission accomplished!! I just hope I can finish this shawl in a timely manner! 🙃

Getting Ready ✨

I epically failed on my 2018 Knitting/Crafting Goals. 😳 Mostly because I wasn’t anticipating going back into the work force full-time right off the bat. I didn’t finish (or even cast on!!) a single knit I had on my goals list, we won’t even talk about the fact that I haven’t even finished a single pair of socks!! 🤭 So I’m taking it easy on myself for 2019. My main goal is to go Cold Sheep for as long as possible and to knit from stash. But isn’t that ALWAYS the goal, though? 🤔 🤷🏻‍♀️ I’m hoping these 3 yarn cakes will get me started on the right foot!
