The WIP that wouldn't end

I finally finished knitting my first shawl. I’ve been actively working on it for about 2 months. Once I got near the end each row seemed to take FOREVER to finish and the purl rows took even longer than that. 106 more words


To Frog or not to Frog

I have about 2/3 of a slouch hat that’s been siting waiting to be finished for months (I think since April). I love this hat, but I ran out of yarn and haven’t bothered to get more. 78 more words


Socks in Progress

One of the things that I love about sock knitting is that it can be done while reading. Right now, all of my reading is concentrated on my graduate classes, and next week is the last week of the summer term, meaning that there has been LOTS of reading and writing assignments and lesson plans to do. 537 more words


Finished Arc

I finished my Arc pullover and am absolutely thrilled, wearing it for the first time today. The first time wearing something is always a bit of a test: does it drape/fit the way it’s supposed to, even when moving around, does it match the type of weather I envisioned wearing it in, is it comfortable to wear, is it going to shift and stretch out in strange ways? 332 more words


Another toque

It took me all day, but I just finished knitting another toque (I’m so fast when I knit with 6mm needles). I really wanted to finish this hat as fast as possible because I am going out of town, to visit friends for the weekend and didn’t want an almost finished item waiting for me at home. 278 more words


Snowflake Hat

I want to post about everything I make, but I’ve been knitting and crocheting so much lately that I’m finishing something every day. This afternoon I finished knitting a simple toque with a Norwegian snowflake motif. 248 more words


New Yarn!

OOOOH!! So fun when FedEx-Man flies into the shop and drops boxes full of yarn!

I need to get my framing work done so I can dive in :)
