Phew!

A week out of town and blogging exclusively from my phone led to a lot of typos (louet germs yarn? ha!) and some grainy photos but I managed to only miss one day, I believe. Not too shabby! While I was in DC visiting family for the Thanksgiving holiday, my mom handed me her copy […]

So close

Still working on daybreak, but I’m almost to the bind off. Right now I am trying to decide between 5 ridges and 7 ridges. Do I have enough yarn for 7? I think so, but I’m not sure. Everything is questionable in flight. Especially when rum and in-flight wifi is involved. …but I think this […]

Yarn Barf

Today K pulled out some sock yarn so I could be support for her first experience starting a sock on double pointed needles (she didn’t need to worry,  smooth sailing!). Unfortunately, her hank of sock yarn had been tangled quite masterfully by a then-2.5 year old. N said he likes to untangle yarn (??!) so […]

Daybreakin’

Still working on daybreak, though I’m on the edge now. I worked 19 sets of stripes because I like 19 better than 20. I may just be able to finish it tomorrow while N is at the Redskins game… here’s hopin’!

Dr. Kev

I finished and shared the vest I knit for my brother a while back. However, I hadn’t delivered it to him yet, so I was a little worried it wouldn’t fit well. Today, I hand-delivered it at Thanksgiving dinner and he was so kind as to model it for me. I think he likes it! […]

Travelling Knitters

When I flew to DC last month for business, I lamented to myself that I never saw anyone else knitting or crocheting on my flights. Yesterday I had settled into the center seat (ugh) between a woman at the window and my husband on the aisle. While the plane was sitting at the gate for […]

In Flight

This trip around, I opted to bring one project and one alone. The idea is that with just one project, I will have to work on it regardless of how mindnumbingly boring it is. So I picked Daybreak – I love how it is turning out and I love the yarn but the actual knitting […]

Hat Obsessed

Yesterday I was in the mood to buy a crafting magazine, any crafting magazine. I happened to pick up the Fall 2010 Interweave Knits while I was at the store. I had looked at it on Ravelry and at the preview and wasn’t interested in any of it. This time I noticed a hat pattern […]
