In Little House knitting news, I was halfway through knitting a second sock yesterday when I put down my needles and took up another set of needles.  Tiny ones, size 1.

When I’m in second sock mode I sometimes need a little break, not from knitting, but from that pair of socks.

I’d seen a pattern that was calling to me, with a tiny but insistently cute voice.  It was, in a word, irresistible.

I made a sweatuh for my key.  A tiny tiny sweatuh.


It needed it today, too.  It was in the 20’s this morning when I took it outside for its first time all sweatered up.

“Won’t the other keys be jealous?” my husband wondered.

I didn’t knit it quite correctly, but the key doesn’t seem to be particular about it, and neither do I.  Here’s the pattern if you are similarly seized with silliness, I mean, . . . the desire to have warm and cozy keys.

Have you tried the 2 at a time socks on the Magic Loop? I have just started some. I’m not finished with even the toes yet. But then I had frog them twice already because of getting the balls of yarn mixed up. LOL I just need to pay closer attention. I found Judy Becker’s “How to” on the net. I just googled the “Magic Loop Knitting” and it came up. It’s not nearly as hard as I thought it would be.

Deborah Jennings–I love Magic Loop! Never done two at a time, but it looks like it would be pretty straightforward. My second sock is usually better than the first because can fix what I did wrong on the first one, so I should probably stick with one at a time until I’m getting the fit right on the first one.

I made my house key a little sweater just like yours and I mean exactly like yours. I think there was something wrong with the pattern but—-it’s still cute and my key doesn’t complain either haha I understand completely the SSS it does get old about halfway thru the second one. Ahhh but when you push thru and get to put them on for the first time. Heaven!!!

That’s adorable.

Cute, cute, cute!

I don’t knit and I think that’s just adorably silly! Lucky key.

Wish there was a crochet pattern for the key “sweatuh”. My keys are jealous. 🙂

very cute! I had one of the silly moments ages ago and made a fitted knitted hat, complete with pom-pom for a ball point pen!!

Michelle H January 22, 2013 at 1:29 pm

Had to tell everyone about this post.. smile.. will be on my blog on Thurs.. thanks for that cute article.

Tracey @ Dont Mess with Mama January 22, 2013 at 11:47 pm

That is such a cute idea! And much easier to find a key at night rather than flipping through them all in the dark.

Danielle January 24, 2013 at 4:07 pm

How precious is that!! I’m much better at crochet than knitting so I might have to stay away from the tiny cuteness.
