Lack of Progress

selbu modern I am painfully slow knitting this. I keep picking it up when I have a spare 15 minutes, looking at it, and putting it back down. Part of this is not being up to the mental task of reading a chart and part of this is that I am not happy with my […]

Bandwagon Dreams

I had a dream about this beret [Kate Gagnon's Selbu Modern] earlier this week. I blame knitblogland and flickr and ravelry. Onto the bandwagon I jump! just a start [flickr] I pondered.

A Quick Note

Phew! I finished the big handknit project for this holiday — a sweater for one of my sisters (I hope she doesn’t read this post before tomorrow afternoon!) based on a sweater I’ve long been inspired by — Adrian’s (Hello Yarn!) Wave Yoke Sweater. I even swiped her wave pattern for the yoke! I added […]

No Sleeve Island Here

Two sleeves for the holiday handspun stranded yoke sweater thing (heh) are done: two sleeves: done! Yes, the pattern at the cuff is slightly different than the previous version (seen here). I thought this would fit with the sweater as a whole much better. I hope the mismatched cuff color isn’t too… strange. I’ve started […]
