WIP Wednesday

Again, I must apologise to my regular readers for the lateness of today’s post. As you know, I write my blog first thing in the morning before Mischief and Mayhem become completely uncontrollable and I can manage half an hour where I can avert my eyes freom the chaos.  583 more words


Mid-Summer Funsies

I finished something today!  Wooot!  I’ve been on kind of a summer schedule for a little while now…out playing on my bike, enjoying the sunshine, playing Pokemon Go (ack) and occasionally dealing with concerns of real life, and it feels like my knitting has been going really slowly (even though I know its not a race). 290 more words

We have been having some really hot weather here lately. I have been less inclined to work on spinning projects because my hands end up getting sweaty with the heat and holding the wool, so it ends up sticking to my hands and not drafting properly. 376 more words

Today I finished my second pair of Silk Garden mitts.

Only that tiny bit of yarn was left. However, I’d cut out a section of gray/brown to keep them light and more on the red side. 73 more words

Bang Out a Quickie

This is a slightly difficult blog post to write today (which is partly why it is so late getting up). I am knitting something new and the pattern is really fun to knit, but the reason why I’m knitting it right now is not great, grand, or exciting. 490 more words
