Something… Purple?

After frogging my lace cardigan, I felt powerful! I control my knits! But I also felt as though I needed to immediately start a new project with the same yarn to keep my momentum going. I poked through some lace patterns but in the end, I decided to go with the plain stockinette version of […]

A Purple Frog?

Ever since I pulled the premiere lace cardigan out of the in-progress box, I have had nagging doubts. The armscyes didn’t look right. The back looked too big. I really wanted to finish it for this spring, but I was scared that it would end up too big and I would never wear it. Last […]

Just Like WoW

DH: You know, if I focused on one character at a time in WoW, I’d probably have it at level 70. But I get bored so instead I have one character at 56, one at 50, one at 44, one at 40, one at 32, and one I just deleted who was at 27. me: […]

For four rounds. Brilliant! A-tinking-we-will-go… […]

Onward We Wave

There has been knitting ’round these parts, squished in between a hockey practice session, a basketball game, a radiology lab visit and work. The knitting has mostly been of the technicolor chevron wavy scarf variety: on and on and on and on we knit It’s around 2.5 feet long now. I think I want it […]

Stripey

To co-opt Ashley’s (Dogged.) term, this is niecephew knitting! DH’s brother and his wife are expecting their first child this summer. “Oh oh, ” I thought, “kid knits, what fun!” So during a meeting at work (oops– this is what happens when meetings run beyond my concentration period) I came up with this design. I […]
