Happy spring! (I know, depending on where you are, it has possibly been spring for ages, or it's already summer, or you're heading into fall, and not spring. But my weather has been very nice and spring-like this week, and I love it.) So: I was hoping to have the Close to You shawl done… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for spring!
(Disclaimer: not all of the pictures are new. Some are recycled. I am busy enough right now with other stuff that I don't care about this, but I thought I should warn you.) So far I have managed my startitis — I've only started one new project this month, and it's already finished. I have no… Continue reading WIP Wrap-up for April 2019
I believe I promised you FO pictures for the Katy Jubilee shawl! Here we go! https://flic.kr/p/Tuqe37 I really love the way this turned out. You can never be quite 100% sure when knitting lace, because during the knitting process it doesn't look the way it's going to once it's finished. I would argue that the… Continue reading FO: Katy Jubilee Shawl
First up, a note about my writing-WIP plans: I mentioned that I had plans to do Camp NaNoWriMo this April, and I have been working on it. However, I have also had lots of other things need my attention, and they are more critical than amateur writing stuff. So, I will be setting aside the… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for Easter Week 2019
I just realized that while I included the Multnomah Shawl in my February WIP Wrap-Up post, I never gave it a full FO post with glamor shots or anything. So! Here it is! https://flic.kr/p/2e5QU71 This is the Multnomah Shawl by Kate Ray. (My Ravelry project page is here.) I used Lion Brand Shawl in a… Continue reading FO: Multnomah Shawl
March had lots of other things happening for me, none of which I'm going to talk about on the blog, but they ended up cutting into my knitting time. So while I was productive, I don't have much knitting progress to show for it. I'll still give you a status update, though, because there have… Continue reading WIP Wrap-up for March 2019
Okay... let's look at socks this Wednesday! There are a few pairs... First, the ones that I want to be knitting, and yet feel (semi) guilty knitting because they are for me: the Nessie Expedition socks! https://flic.kr/p/2f2SMvj I think I've said before, but I messed up the heel on sock #1 and didn't notice it… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Sock It To Me
So... remember how one of my 19 for '19 tasks for myself is to knit a myself Fair Isle sweater? Well, I have cast on that sweater now. It's Minstrel, designed by my online friend Lorraine of Twisted Traditions. https://flic.kr/p/24rWKDa It's moving slowly so far, because I'm learning that corrugated ribbing seems to take forever.… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Fair Isle!
I have not finished nearly as many items as I wanted to this month. Alas. But at least there has been progress and there are finished objects! Yay! Always look on the bright side, right? FOs (aka Finished Objects) Mario Kart GAL square Multnomah shawl — It's washed and blocking! I had originally planned to… Continue reading WIP Wrap-up for February 2019
It's time for an update on the Geek-A-Long blanket! (This is still just the gift version, since I realized a little while ago that I have trouble working on essentially two of the same thing at once.) The worsted weight squares are nicer in some ways (thicker yarn means progress is more visible) and less… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Geeking Along
