The Library is Open- Part 2: Cables

Let’s talk about cables!  They’re some of my favorite things to knit, and they look super impressive.  But here’s the secret- they’re actually pretty easy!  (Especially if you can read your knitting as you go, instead of relying on a row counter to keep track of your pattern.) 438 more words


6 Rows This Week...

I knit 6 rows this week. Yes, you can likely count them if I photograph this up-close.

Here it is, in all it’s glory, six rows…Finals are coming(which is almost scarier than winter is coming…I think) 28 more words


My Favorite Gift to Give

I love to knit sweaters for my friends’ babies, and over the years I’ve developed a particular fondness for this cable knit cardigan pattern. I generally make it in a size 3 (they’re likely to outgrow smaller sizes in faster time than it takes you to knit the sweater!) and a gender-neutral color so future siblings can wear it, although exceptions have been made. 251 more words


knitting progress (23/04/16)

I haven’t been really doing much knitting, but ever since plans were confirmed, I’ve picked them up again!

Since the last progress post, I think I’ve transitioned (crudely) into emerald green. 114 more words


Frustration and progress

With being very busy and Lovely Husband being around a lot, I’m not sure I even knitted a dozen rows of the secret sweater last week. 132 more words


Aran Baby Cardigan

I’m writing this a bit late as I gifted this two weeks ago but better late than never!
I finally finished the cardigan that contained the pattern errata. 151 more words


Desserts, Books & Yarn...

Too bad the dessert was imaginary and Midnight Knitter already took: Yarn, Books and Roses, but this makes a reasonable title for a post….As I did make brownies, and now I will be dreaming of an imaginary dessert tonight as a result of a reading I attended for class. 1,057 more words
