Every year I buy more sweaters and usually retire one or two. the biggest of big sheep This year, instead of accumulating sweaters, I appear to be accumulating yarn to make sweaters. And sweater patterns. I am still looking at […]

Seam Hell

I was hoping to have a completed denim hooded baby cardigan to show by the end of the weekend. I finished seaming the back of the hood and attaching the hood to the neckline today, so at least I made progress. What’s left? Both sleeves and the body seaming, plus mass amounts of weaving ends […]

In Progress

I planned to work this weekend due to a deadline. However I didn’t receive a frantic phone call this morning, so I sat down at the dining room table with the denim baby cardigan and started working on the finishing. I seamed the shoulders using the woven method (like kitchener with bound off stitches). It […]

Finishing Without My Brain

I sat down last night with my pre-washed denim yarn for seaming and the back and fronts of the denim baby cardigan. I stopped, ran upstairs and got my (non-pink) chibi and The Knitter’s Book of Finishing Techniques. I turned on Weeds and started attempting to seam. It did not go so well. I pulled […]

Halfway Klaralund

click for detail I was binding off the body today and I suddenly got worried that Klaralund wasn’t going to fit, that the sleeves wouldn’t go over my chest properly, and instead it would pull the bottom of the sweater up. Nevermind all of my mathematical calculations and discussions with people about the sweater construction, […]

Halfway again. I plan to finish it this weekend. Once this one is complete, another secret project begins. Denim Baby […]

Denim, Baby

I’m slightly more than halfway done now. I have the other sleeve and the hood left, plus the buttonbands. I love how this is working up, though all of the ends and the stockinette do grate on my nerves after a while. I haven’t washed any of the pieces yet. They’re all going to shrink […]

Cure For A Bad Day

Are you having a bad day? Did you sleep through three alarms — your own, and both of your lovely husband’s? Did you get to work much later than usual and promptly mistype your password so many times that you locked yourself out of your account? Did you trip and fall and tear a toenail […]
