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
I've mentioned a lot how much I love working on the Minstrel Sweater, but that's about all I've said about it for a while. So, how about a little focus on it this week? https://flic.kr/p/2gg2WoR That's the overall progress I've made so far. I'm pleased with how it's going, and when I give myself some… Continue reading WIP Wednesday ~ Minstrel Progress
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!
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
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!
IT'S FINISHED!!!! https://flic.kr/p/2aRbiqJ I have finally finished my Purple Majesty Boyfriend Sweater! The picture above is from before I added the buttons, but trust me, the buttons are sewn on now and I can wear the sweater as soon as the weather cooperates. Actually, it's been cool enough when I leave for work in the… Continue reading FO: Purple Majesty Boyfriend Sweater
I'm currently on Sleeve Island with the Purple Majesty Boyfriend Sweater. I'm making good progress, and I'm enjoying the knit, but it doesn't make for very interesting pictures. 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
Happy WIP Wednesday! I hope you've been having a good August so far, because it's half-way over. (Yikes.) I've been knitting on my latest worsted-weight GAL square, but before I show you a photo of that, let me show you the blanket progress to date: https://flic.kr/p/27abgz1 I've decided… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 15 August 2018
HOW IS IT AUGUST ALREADY? That's really the important question. Other things, like "what have I been knitting?" aren't nearly as top of mind right now. But, since you asked, I've been knitting mostly on two things: the Purple Majesty Boyfriend Sweater, and the Trekking is the New Black socks. The other day I took… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 1 August 2018
We FINALLY get back to a traditional WIP Weds post this week! There has been knitting! On more than one project! And I'm here to show them all off for you! First though, because I am a sucker for stash photos, here are three new skeins of yarn I *ahem* somehow acquired over the past… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 25 July 2018
