Okay, there has been knitting, and there has been crocheting, but I am not going to show you the progress on any of my current projects because I CAN'T WAIT TO SHOW OFF THE BABETTE BLANKET! Sorry for shouting. But this project has been a WIP for over 7 years, and it is so (pick… Continue reading FO: Babette Blanket!!!
I've been working on a bit here and there this week -- and I've been working on several things since my last WIP Weds (due to the blog vacation) -- but I'm only talking about one thing today: https://flic.kr/p/XL3oq4 BABETTE!!! Why just Babette? BECAUSE IT'S NEARLY DONE! https://flic.kr/p/XHkSpA I can't tell you how excited I… Continue reading WIP Wednesday ~ Babette!
I have been knitting. Promise. But! For the first time in a while, I have also been crocheting! Last weekend, I finally decided to finish weaving in all the ends on the Babette Blanket. I also remembered that this only meant I needed to weave in the inside ends -- the ends that I'm going… Continue reading WIP Weds ~ in which the Babette Blanket returns
I have been knitting, honest. But much of that knitting has been on a pair of vanilla socks which are now on another section of knitting that doesn't show progress very well. (Just so that you aren't totally without pictures, here's one I took last weekend when I tried the sock on to see how… Continue reading WIP Weds ~ in which we talk queues
* not actually true... there has been other knitting; it's just not being shown here today. https://flic.kr/p/SyWa8Q Remember last week, when I told you I was almost done with the Babette squares? Well, this week I have finished them! https://flic.kr/p/RUQq44 Or, I have finished them if I counted correctly. If I discover while joining the… Continue reading WIP Weds ~ in which it is all Babette, all the time*
I am so close. So close I can practically feel it. Close to what, you ask? Close to being done with crocheting squares for the Babette blanket! I still have a small handful to make, and yes - then I have to sew in starting ends and assemble the blanket - but I AM SO CLOSE!… Continue reading WIP Wednesday ~ in which I am *that close*
Most (not quite all, but most) of my knitting has been for me this week. One of the big exceptions to that was the cowl I showed you on Monday, but since that one is finished now, it's not included in this week's WIP Weds. As I indicated then, I have also started a second… Continue reading WIP Weds ~ in which I knit for me
Okay, so this was supposed to be published a lot earlier on Wednesday than this... but I didn't get my WIP pictures taken until lunchtime on Wednesday, so there was a delay. Anyway, I guess it doesn't matter that much: it's still Wednesday. Here's what I've been up to: I have been working on the Babette… Continue reading WIP Weds ~ in which I am late with the pictures
So here we are in a New Year! And I have started to work on... a very old project of mine. This week I have been working on the Babette Blanket. I started this project nearly seven years ago in April of 2010. I haven't worked on it in a long while, but I really… Continue reading WIP Wednesday ~ in which we start a new year with an old project
I promised you a bacon scarf FO post… and here it is! Yay! This scarf was one that a friend asked me to make him. He had asked me for a bacon scarf, so I found a few patterns that I could knit easily and showed them to him. However, I was looking on Ravelry,… Continue reading Nice Crispy Bacon
