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 […]

January Socks…

This first pair of 2018 is out of what I consider my vanilla sock pattern (below)…I think every knitter has their own go to, this one is mine. I really enjoyed knitting this pair out of Old Oak Yarns in their Hardwood Sock Base, 75/25, 100g – 453, 32g remain for darning or some other […]

A week of finishing…

Busy week! Lots of non-knitting work happened….real life sometimes gets in the way. Lots of knitting happened. Two finished objects, progress on finishing an object and knitting, knitting, knitting! These two ear warmers were finished for my best man! He loves them and wore the gray one today. My Sandhurst sweater has been almost done […]
