The Best Part

I think this is the best part: pushinitonme: I wore the sweater you made me today! pushinitonme: I just thought you should know that. From my youngest sister, who currently resides on her college campus in upstate NY. She is a delight to make things for.

No Knitting, But Plenty to Say

I have not knit a stitch since Sunday. I think it is making me very stressed out to not get an hour or so each night to rhythmically pull yarn through loops! I do think knitting and spinning and crocheting keep me a bit more sane. However, as we work on the house, I have […]

FOs, WiPs, and a Story

We had a busy weekend around here! A run for me, a trip to the movies, home renovation work, pho dinner, N’s family over to watch three football games, and house cleaning (not that you can tell what with the thin layer of drywall dust over everything now). It’s amazing to me that I managed […]

Socktoberfest

I’m still around. I’m fighting a cold, hockey preseason just started [Go Caps!], work is a bit crazy, and I’ve ramped up my exercise regimen so my everyday schedule is a bit out of whack right now. However, October is almost here and Lolly of Lolly Knitting Around is organizing Socktoberfest again! You can sign […]

One Final Trek

DH and I took a couple of days off and headed down to the Outer Banks for a short vacation with some friends. I managed to fit some knitting in between the rain and booze (and subsequent hangover). I finally finished my Trekking socks that I started back in June and took them on a […]

Enabling Since 1978

Sundara Yarns next 6 month Petals Collection is open for signups. I love the yarn everyone has been receiving this round! Scout’s Indie Swag Club will be open for signups tomorrow (Wednesday the 13th). This is a neat idea! I’m unfortunately not taking part in either, which makes more space for you!

List O’ Links

I don’t have anything to show what with the overcast skies and my only progress being on mindless socks and the back of DH’s sweater (read: plain grey stockinette as far as the eye can see). Lucky for you, other people have been publishing great articles/sites/patterns. Here’s some of my favorites: The Secret? You Can […]

She’s a Swatching Madwoman

After last week’s less-than-spectacular swatching results with the Knit Picks Merino Style and Gleek’s comment about how thick Merino Style is stranded [aside: all stranded work feels thick to me, so I'm really glad she pointed it out!] I went looking for other yarn options to try for Eunny Jang’s Deep V Argyle Vest. I […]

What’s Mine Is Yours

I am in the process of seaming up Rouge. I’ve finished the bottom hem (2 hours to pin and seam) and one sleeve (2 more hours to pin and seam). I should be able to finish the sweater by the end of the weekend. It seems every time I set the sweater down, Ginger finds […]

Don’t Fear the Frog

I always have a bit of a freakout when I finish the knitting (or crocheting or spinning) on a project. “What next?!” I think. My WiP list is pages long so it’s not as though I don’t have any options — I just freak out. This time, I decided to clean up my crafting area […]
