FO: Sakaki Shawl

The Sakaki Shawl is finished! Washed and blocked and everything! I enjoyed knitting this one a lot, but I will admit that it got a bit tedious at times when I couldn't easily see any progress.

WIP Wednesday ~ a random update

It's knitting update time! And I'm going to start with something I promised you in the last monthly wrap-up: details on what went wrong with the Fork in the Road socks.

WIP Weds ~ East of the Sun, West of the Moon

Happy Hump Day! I think it’s time for a WIP Weds post. There will only be one WIP listed today, because there hasn’t been much visible progress on any of the other WIPs. For instance, I love working on the Dark Side of the Moon socks, because the yarn is so soft and the striping… Continue reading WIP Weds ~ East of the Sun, West of the Moon
