Lookie here! Finished socks! Sorry the picture's a little blurry. The lighting wasn't great, and while I tried to clean it up a bit, I think all I succeeded in doing was making the blurriness more obvious. It's a pretty good representation of the color, at least. This was a fun pattern. While it was… Continue reading Friday FO ~ Artichoke Socks!
I just realized that I didn't apologize in advance for not having a post on Monday. It was a holiday in the US (Labor Day) and I just didn't feel like doing anything typical. So instead of writing a blog post, I spent time trying to teach my family how to play Rock Band (with… Continue reading WiP Weds 9.7.11 ~ A Tale Of Two Socks

It seems silly for it to be on my coast and such a KNITTING EVENT and not go, but… Continue reading WiP Weds ~ 8.3.11 (In which there are flowers)
A quick reminder before the WiP part of the post… if you go to Monday’s post and comment with the name of a song to cheer me up, or a request for cheering of your own, you will be entered to win homemade cards! And you can enter daily for more chances! This week has… Continue reading WiP Weds ~ 7.27.11
Well. After telling you all that I needed to adjust my Artichoke Socks because of my row gauge, it turns out I didn’t need to after all. So I had to rip back a little bit (AGAIN) and continue the instep pattern decreases as written. (This is really a good thing, as the faster decreases… Continue reading WiP Weds 7.13.11 ~ In Which I Have Willpower
