It’s 100°+ Outside

…and I’m making snowflakes. It’s Wednesday already, but yes, I have been working on snowflake-related items all week. I finished one thread snowflake and got fairly far on my stranded snowflake project, but I decided it was too large and frogged it. Other than that, no fiber manipulations of any sort. I’ve been suffering from […]

Nothing to See Here

That’s most of this week’s stash enhancement. Uhm. I think we might have a problem here. This is serious binging. On the left, we have a whole lot of sock yarn (with more on the way). 8oz of Interlacements Toasty Toes in #221, 4oz of Schaefer Yarns Anne, some Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino in […]

Finally Got It!

This weekend I spent some time working the backwards yarnover method for a short row heel. I frogged four times — each time I got further before I messed it up, so I did feel like I was making progress. Tonight I ripped it back again, and started anew. I got it this time! Remind […]

No Jess, There is No Sock Yarn Shortage

I would like to take this time to remind myself that no, there is not a sock yarn shortage in the world. No, I don’t need to buy every single cool hank of sock yarn I see. In five months, there will be other cool sock yarn! In case you’re wondering, the Opal Rainforest Collection […]

Yarn As Sustenance (or I Need Help)

I’m sitting here after winding up most of a ball of Cherry Tree Hill Supersock that I picked up at Woolwinders back in January. I pick up my bottle of Gatorade and take a swig. I put it down. A couple of minutes later, I finish reading a thread at Crochetville and look down and […]

Filed Under Not Fiber

Excuse the lack of fiber crafting — I’m not thinking much about fibery pursuits today. I’m worried about my pets. Ginger is being spayed today and will be staying at the vet overnight. I don’t think I will be okay with that until she’s back at home licking me tomorrow. Claw is sick and we […]

WiP Wednesday

Klaralund. Still working on Klara. The neverending sleeve is … never. ending. 27″ long sleeve! I only have 6″ left on it to go. Then I can cast on for the front (or back)! DH’s Opal Socks. The first one is 2/3 done. Regia Jubilee in India tall socks for me. Second one has been […]
