WIP Wednesday ~ the everything edition

So, my last couple of WIP Wednesdays have been entirely about the Minstrel Sweater. I don't have a lot else I'm knitting right now (because I REALLY want that sweater to be done) but I thought I'd touch bases with all of the knitting anyway. I'm not going to share new pics of the Changeful… Continue reading WIP Wednesday ~ the everything edition

WIP Wrap-up for September 2019

I learned something about knitting with beads this month: I need to be more careful when I select beads for knitted projects. I learned that sometimes the finish on the beads does not like getting a bath in wool wash. Something in the wool wash can cause the finish on the beads to discolor or… Continue reading WIP Wrap-up for September 2019

WIP Wrap-up for August 2019

I'm trying to determine how long it will be before I can reasonably eliminate the UFO section from this update. The name of the section will always amuse me, but I like having projects finished more than I like having the joke listed. I think it will have to stay until I have finished the… Continue reading WIP Wrap-up for August 2019

WIP Wednesday ~ the Geek-A-Long edition

I was reminded earlier this month that some of you are new enough to the blog that you haven't seen me talk about the Geek-A-Long blanket(s) yet. So, here's an update! First of all, what is the Geek-A-Long? The Geek-A-Long (AKA the GAL) was started by Lattes and Llamas in 2014 to "improve our double… Continue reading WIP Wednesday ~ the Geek-A-Long edition

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 July 2019

Happy July! As I mentioned last month, July is when the Tour de Fleece reminds me to spin all this lovely fiber I have so that I can make it into yarn which I can knit. So (while there has certainly also been A LOT of knitting progress! Hooray!!) there are significantly more pictures of… Continue reading WIP Wrap-up for July 2019

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
