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

Learning to knit one step at a time with Melody's Makings

I have been crocheting since my Mom taught me at the age of 10. I wasn’t that great at it in the beginning but every time that I took it up again (took a few years off from it here and there) I just got better and better at. 620 more words
