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 Wednesday: the startitis edition

So I have mentioned the Fork in the Road socks on here before, since they are my current travel knitting. However, I didn't talk that much about them and I am really fascinated by the way the socks work up so I want to look at them in a little more detail. https://flic.kr/p/TLhoFW The heel… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: the startitis edition

WIP Wednesday: a new sock

Toward the end of last month I wanted to cast something on. I really wanted to cast something on, but I didn't want to lose focus on my gift knitting plan for the year. So, I cast on some gift socks. https://flic.kr/p/2eB4T2M These are Wrack Socks, designed by Hunter Hammersen. They are a bunch of… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: a new sock

WIP Wednesday for 19 December 2018

Huh, it seems I have been blogging on WordPress for 12 years. WOW. And I know I was on Blogger for some years before that, but I forget how many. I've been blogging for a long time, though. Okay, nostalgia over, now it's time for the knitting! I'm showing you two gift knits today! Whee!… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 19 December 2018

WIP Wednesday for 10 October 2018

The Seeta Mitts are finished! I'll be knitting more mitts shortly, too. I had forgotten how QUICKLY they knit up when you actually work on them. Such great quick gratification projects. (Quick... but not quite instant.) https://flic.kr/p/PDyMgs There are the completed Seeta Fingerless Gloves. I still haven't figured out the best way to block them,… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 10 October 2018

WIP Wednesday for 15 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

WIP Wednesday for 8 August 2018

Don't mind me, I'm just over here in a state of denial that it's August already. In the meantime, how about some knitting? I've been mostly working on the Purple Majesty Boyfriend Sweater, and I've just about finished the second front. Next will be the sleeves, and then I can determine if I have spun… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 8 August 2018

WIP Wednesday for 1 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

WIP Wednesday for 25 July 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
