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. First, I had mentioned that there was a knot in the yarn which meant I had to go through the yarn to get to… Continue reading WIP Wednesday ~ a random update

WIP Wrap-up for July 2019

Happy July! As I mentioned last month, July is when the Tour de Fleece reminds me to spin all this lovely fiber I have so that I can make it into yarn which I can knit. So (while there has certainly also been A LOT of knitting progress! Hooray!!) there are significantly more pictures of… Continue reading WIP Wrap-up for July 2019

WIP Wrap-up for June 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. Lunch break knitting was fine, but it was weird and sad and strange to sit on the couch knitting at… Continue reading WIP Wrap-up for June 2019

WIP Wrap-up for March 2019

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

WIP Wrap-up for February 2019

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

WIP Wednesday: Geeking Along

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

WIP Wednesday: a new sock

Toward the end of last month I wanted to cast something on. I really wanted to cast something on, but I didn't want to lose focus on my gift knitting plan for the year. So, I cast on some gift socks. https://flic.kr/p/2eB4T2M These are Wrack Socks, designed by Hunter Hammersen. They are a bunch of… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: a new sock

WIP Wednesday for 17 October 2018

This will be my last WIP Weds post for a while, for a couple of reasons. First, I'm trying to catch up on my tag posts, and so I have scheduled some of them for upcoming Wednesdays. Second, this is the middle of October and (as I mentioned on Sunday) I'm supposed to be planning… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 17 October 2018

WIP Wednesday for 10 October 2018

The Seeta Mitts are finished! I'll be knitting more mitts shortly, too. I had forgotten how QUICKLY they knit up when you actually work on them. Such great quick gratification projects. (Quick... but not quite instant.) https://flic.kr/p/PDyMgs There are the completed Seeta Fingerless Gloves. I still haven't figured out the best way to block them,… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 10 October 2018

WIP Wednesday for 26 September 2018

Last week I focused on my Raw Honey Mitts, and this week I'm going to focus on the Geek-A-Long blanket! The last square I showed you was the Portal square. Well, that one has now been finished, and here's a picture of the front of the completed square: https://flic.kr/p/2bcXpXS And here's the back. Last time… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 26 September 2018
