Finished!

Three finishes, and a first. The Bias Pink Shawl is yet another iteration of my standard recipe shawl…a wardrobe staple. CO3, inc up one side almost to desired length/yarn usage, change from stockinette to (yo,k2tog) just long enough so that yarn-chicken isn’t necessary to complete a stretchy BO. A lovely layer that will go with […]

Knitting in July….in spite of the humidity

Ankers Summer Top and Pink Ranunculas are done….woohoo! Sock are also done, the heels made perfect in the car knitting while waiting for M at an appointment. Bottom left is a beige silk/linen Cedar Pullover which has been frogged twice due to sizing issues. Who knew! I love the fabric and it should be loose […]

Ah, summer at last!

Finished these three Miettes, May 20 – June 13! Still have to weave in the ends, but wow! Of course, by the time #3 was mostly done I had made some minor alterations that made the knitting lay smoother on the edges and makes me want to go back and redo #1, except that I […]

fresh start – welcome early summer!

Doesn’t that image just make you smile? The first fawn of the season always reminds me that life goes on and, no matter what, this too shall pass. Watching these two get to know each other in our back pasture has reminded me that it is time to stop, take a breath, and be thankful […]

Done….now what?

I’ve already knit one I’m calling Orange Sherbet, a third set of socks are on the needles, a Plum Boxy is keeping me warm. I can’t wait to wear my Marettimo in Pink when we get some warmer weather! Wow, Ravelry says that’s already 4,140yds used this year….that’s a lot of stitches, and what a […]

Winter is here…already. (sigh)

Chrstmas Eve…glancing out the window as I think of where I want this to ‘go’…there are deer in the back pasture crunching through all the fallen leaves. All but the cedar trees are bare and the yard is full of acorns, which means it is fully ‘sweater weather’! I have finished several sweaters this year […]

Whoa…2019, Slow Down!

It’s been a busy 5 months! Where do I start?! Well, how about with finished objects? Knit some more socks… I’ve just about finished a Tegna from some nice raspberry colored cotton, the back is done on another Deschain in green linen, there is another pair of socks in progress in the car… And I’m […]
