Foxpaws pattern notes

*For those currently knitting this pattern who have an extra 3 stitches at the end of row 2:
On rows 2, 4, and 6 on the last repeat, do not worry about completing the full repeat, work the sequence only until you have 2 remaining stitches, then K2tog.

Knit Tips: Weaving in ends as you knit

I love knitting stripes and using different colors in my knitting, but I HATE sewing in ends. To avoid all that extra finishing work, just these simple directions.

Fox Paws

It is somewhat painful to keep a secret that is very exciting. It is also somewhat painful to be halfway through a project and to find out the burning sensation in your mouth and nose is caused by said project. Today I can gladly announce that Fox Paws, a new flame stitch pattern, is now published after months of secrecy.

So, I make stuff

Hi,

Not sure if you all noticed, but something changed over the weekend, that's right, it's the name of this blog.

The work is getting to me is now known as So I make stuff.com. I have made the change for a few reasons. Nobody remembered what I was called, the name was so long that it couldn't be used as a twitter handle, and most importantly, I don't talk about homework or work anymore, rather, I show you what fun things I do when I'm not working.

All of the old links will continue to work, the only difference is the name of the website. Over the next few weeks you may see some cosmetic changes, but also a lot more regular updates again.

I'd be attending to such changes now, but I've got deadlines to meet for work first - so yes, it does still get to me.

Thank you for visiting in spite of the construction,
-X

☠ chromatose ☢



I got this yarn on impulse, thinking that maybe it would make a decent sweater. The idea of entirely unique skeins made from mill ends is really wonderful. I want to make a bunch of these just to group skeins into sweaters. I am looking into getting this yarn direct from the mill in Michigan to make some machine knit sweaters for retail!
