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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Isn’t the Basket Weave sweater is progressing nicely? Its just a bit boxy like a comfy sweatshirt. As usual when designing on the fly, the first sleeve has been reworked…this is #4, to get the decrease slope correct. Sunday evening I was about 9″ in, when I realized I had a sleeve that would fit […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Spending a moment on this gorgeous afternoon with my feet up on a rail….a glass code by….and a good book! Dreaming of new projects and contemplating those close to being finished. What are you knitting today?
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 […]
Well today is Wednesday….All the Love has been on the needles four days. (At 7am today doesn’t count!) I’m already 3+ inches past the arm hole join! This cashmere blend is so soft! Gotta get a round in before getting ready for work… Happy Knitting!
