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 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 Wrap-Up for January 2019

It's the last Wednesday in January, and that means it's time to review the WIPs! I've decided to recap my craft project status for the last WIP Weds of each month, partly for accountability. If I include a list of all the projects I have on the go here, and have to look at them… Continue reading WIP Wrap-Up for January 2019

WIP Wednesday for 23 January 2019

We're on to the first WIP of 2019! Yay! For today, I'm not going to touch on my UFOs, just the projects that I'm actively working on. (We'll get to the UFOs soon, though, I promise.) So, that means we have: 2018 Geek-A-Long blanket (aka the worsted-weight gift one) Multnomah Shawl I don't remember what… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 23 January 2019

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 3 October 2018

There has been knitting! And finishing! I'll start with that, because it happened longest ago. I finished the Raw Honey mitts! They are soft and squishy and it will be hard to give them away as originally planned instead of keeping them for myself. Still, here they are:     https://flic.kr/p/2ajZsK9 So yummy. I really… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 3 October 2018
