I'm trying to determine how long it will be before I can reasonably eliminate the UFO section from this update. The name of the section will always amuse me, but I like having projects finished more than I like having the joke listed. I think it will have to stay until I have finished the… Continue reading WIP Wrap-up for August 2019
I've been gradually getting back into knitting this month. I know I didn't talk about it much, but I did have a small knitting slump at the end of May and first half of June.

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

I always forget that the sleeves take more time and yarn than the sweater fronts do, but there you have it. In other Boyfriend Sweater-related news, I… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 22 August 2018
