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 […]

Done….now what?

11 days! Woohoo! My own pattern, made up on the fly based on a recipe from The Knitters Handbook of Top Down Sweaters. Had just enough yarn (some random – really soft – acrylic found in my stash w/ no ball bands) for the cuffs to match the hem with 7g left. So happy. Now […]

2020 – The Year of the Sweater?

Everywhere you turn, everything you hear…its all about current pandemic conditions. I’m done! I don’t want to hear or see anymore, leave me alone and let me knit in peace, take care of my husband, and work from my home office. Call me when I can go out again! On any given weekend, I would […]

It's a Ranunculus Kind of Year!

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 […]

Fall Knitting

As the weather turns cooler I definitely want to knit warmer things! I finished my All the Love in 8 days…it’s blocked and modeled (with the ends still sticking out). Playing yarn chicken necessitated short sleeves and a slightly shorter body but it is so soft I’m looking forward to wearing it! My first gift […]

Drifting into spring….

This is Drift, she’s a pullover by Kristen Finlay in Sueno in the Bowl of Raspberries Tonal colorway. She’s been my constant companion all week, in the car at stop-lights, on my lunch break, in the car with my best man taking a drive, at home in the evening…we’ve been faithful, and now we are […]

Set Backs…..and Progress!

Progress… My Sandhurst Pullover is done and worn! It only took about 4 weeks to knit…on and off. But, since I finished in winter…catching a bit of bright daylight to weave in ends was scarce so took a bit more time to actually be wearable than I would have liked. The yarn is so soft. […]
