I love these chunky ribbed beanies!! They're super comfy, washable, and WARM!! My handsome model here even absconded with one of the ones I made because he loved it so much. How can I be mad at that though?? Anyway, I'm trying to keep adding stuff to Etsy, and for you locals, I'll be popping up in person soon. But I definitely can make this style of hat in pretty much any color I can get the yarn in, so if you like these and want a different color, poke me (here, knitnfrog@gmail.com or however you like!) and I'll make it happen. *

I started this on Nov 25 and just finished weaving in the ends! What a gorgeous pattern! Part of the Mirror Lattice Spa Set

I’m working on the Mirror Lattice hand towel and just realized that I messed up a cable about 10 rows back. The perfectionist in me is stressing but I’m leaving it 😬 #knitting #mirrorlattice #knittersofri #knitstagram

Hi! Welcome to everyone who found me because of the Brain Hats I make! I hope you stick around and enjoy the other mischief I get myself into, as well as my other yarnie stuff. 😊

Head over to my Facebook page (same name) and I'll put a more detailed FAQ about the hats, since I'm getting a lot of questions. But some quick answers: I am accepting commission requests, but please be aware that they take a significant amount of time, so I cannot guarantee a finished Brain Hat for the holidays. I'm so sorry! But depending on when the request comes in, it could be not to long into 2018. They are hand knit, and the handmade cord is then hand sewn to the hat, in a design I drafted based on a *lot* of research. As such, the cost is currently set at $100 plus shipping. However! As they are all made to order, you can also have one in any color you like. If you have more questions, I'm happy to answer here, on Facebook, or at knitnfrog@gmail.com. Thank you!!! ❤️ #knitnfrog #knitting #knittersofinstagram #brainhat #brain #customknit #handknit #handsewn #brains #knittersofri #science #thinkingcap #pink #icord #milesoficord #etsyshops #commission #faq #lilrhody #rhodeisland #smallbusiness #401 #providence #customknit

Bringing some day-in-the-life realness at the laundromat! I actually enjoy doing laundry, but I am so excited to have our own machines at the new house!! We're waiting on the dryers, so I'm putting in some time on this MCN hat. I think a huge part of why I got so obsessive about knitting is how tactile I am. Knitting with different textures is soooo soothing to me. I freaking love it! I think the rhythm of it appeals as well. Am I weird? Okay, unfair question. But is this something others find draws them to their hobbies? I feel similarly about books. Feeling the paper of books is an integral part of the experience for me (I'm not a Kindle gal). Anyway. It's probably why I enjoy doing laundry too!

My amazing better half has taken the napping kiddo with him grocery shopping, and let me hang out with a delicious pot of tea and some light weekend reading. 😜

I'm still knitting away on these chunky beanies! They're so squishy and comfy, I keep going back to them between other projects. Of course, I need to be especially conscious of my joints now that I know what can cause injury. I also am much better about not just sitting in one place for long periods of time (I always get comments from people when I'm walking around while knitting! It is, admittedly, pretty funny). It's also much easier with the chunky beanies to grab stitches here and there between running around with a 2-year-old!

I know I need to work more on the photographing, editing, and listing the things I make, but I'm a lot better at making than marketing. I can admit to my weaknesses! 😆 It definitely helps a lot to keep everything organized, and making lots of lists and spreadsheets. I'm taking some time today to specifically work on my Etsy shop (same name as here!) and do some research into website stuff. Somewhere in there I hope to spend some time outside with the Peanut; it's 50° out here in Rhode Island, with sunny clear skies! It's been so rainy and overcast, I'm less bummed about the bright fireball in the sky today. 😜

Getting some knitting done while at my first EDS support group meeting! It's been pretty scary to be diagnosed with a painful, chronic, genetic, incurable condition. However...the amount of support I've found both locally and within my amazing chosen family has made it so much less daunting. I'm heading from here to my awesome Project Piecework fam, where we're continuing to knit and crochet blanket squares and piecing them together to make blankets for refugee families in our area. Being able to get the support I need, and then support others as I can makes me feel much less misanthropic. 😊

After two months, I finally finished my Dad’s #christmas present! The #classiccowl by @purlsoho. It is so beautiful! I learned how to do the #longtailtubularcaston, to #knit in the round & join, #twistedrib, #yarnover, #fluffybrioche, the #longtailtubularbindoff, and the #kitchenerstitch! #knitting #riknitters #newenglandknitters #knittersofri #knittersofnewengland #christmasknitting #knitsagram #purlsohobusyhands

Alright my IG fam, my little one is kicking off her Girl Scout year with her first fundraiser. Her goal is $200. She is halfway there.

There's a great selection of magazines or you can always go the delicious route of nuts and candy.

Link is in the bio.

Please consider supporting her! **the troop is saving for an NYC trip to go see Wicked on Broadway**

PROGRESS UPDATE: Arm holes are created, and working on the body part. Definitely glad for the n00b style easy to follow pattern for my first sweater.

Finished my Swirl Hat a few days ago, but between organizing all of my crafting supplies and finally getting my work clothes properly hanging in the closet, I kept forgetting to post. Bad lighting. I was in a rush before daylight was completely lost.

I have been a neglecting Instagram way too much! Things are a bit chaotic in the world of #knitnfrog these days, but we managed to break away and have an amazing time at #RIPride last week! I've been having a lot of fun making fascinators/headbands of various kinds, but the tiny top hats have a special place in my heart. 🎩❤️💛💚💙💜 Right now I'm focusing on trying to move our little family, but I'm hoping to keep from disappearing so much while doing so!

Mayday yarnishness! I made hats and patches depicting the anarcho-syndicalist flag. Happy International Worker's Day!

In the push for raising the minimum wage, a lot of people are forgetting the work that went into getting the 8 hour workday, weekends, and other work related safety protocols that we now take for granted. Today we remember them!
