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?

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

An afternoon break…

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?

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 […]

Swatch Time….

Not quite cast-on-itis since all the pieces of my Aqua Frieze are done….Not in the mood to sew in ends today so taking the time to do some planning. The pink is a discontinued Cash Vera. I got gauge on 4mm needle to start an All the Love by Joji Locatelli. My plan is to […]

September…is it really Fall already?

The feels like temp is supposed to be 105 today. Not really sweater weather yet…but it’s coming. Making great progress on my Aqua Frieze pullover, from…wow, all the way back to Knitter’s Summer 2015. The yarn is a Craftsy special from a couple years ago that has been struggling to become something! Son’s blanket is […]
