FO: Minstrel Sweater

It's done! I am so excited to have it done. (Yes, it's been done for a while now. Sorry for the delay. I had been too busy to take good FO pics for a while.) https://flic.kr/p/2hM7wYL I've learned a lot while knitting this sweater.

FO: Sakaki Shawl

The Sakaki Shawl is finished! Washed and blocked and everything! I enjoyed knitting this one a lot, but I will admit that it got a bit tedious at times when I couldn't easily see any progress.

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

FO: Purple Majesty Boyfriend Sweater

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
