WIP Wednesday for Easter Week 2019

First up, a note about my writing-WIP plans: I mentioned that I had plans to do Camp NaNoWriMo this April, and I have been working on it. However, I have also had lots of other things need my attention, and they are more critical than amateur writing stuff. So, I will be setting aside the… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for Easter Week 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

WIP Wednesday: Fair Isle!

So... remember how one of my 19 for '19 tasks for myself is to knit a myself Fair Isle sweater? Well, I have cast on that sweater now. It's Minstrel, designed by my online friend Lorraine of Twisted Traditions. It's moving slowly so far, because I'm learning that corrugated ribbing seems to take forever.… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Fair Isle!

WIP Wrap-up for February 2019

I have not finished nearly as many items as I wanted to this month. Alas. But at least there has been progress and there are finished objects! Yay! Always look on the bright side, right? FOs (aka Finished Objects) Mario Kart GAL square Multnomah shawl — It's washed and blocking! I had originally planned to… Continue reading WIP Wrap-up for February 2019

WIP Wednesday: Geeking Along

It's time for an update on the Geek-A-Long blanket! (This is still just the gift version, since I realized a little while ago that I have trouble working on essentially two of the same thing at once.) The worsted weight squares are nicer in some ways (thicker yarn means progress is more visible) and less… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Geeking Along

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. These are Wrack Socks, designed by Hunter Hammersen. They are a bunch of… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: a new sock

WIP Wrap-Up for January 2019

It's the last Wednesday in January, and that means it's time to review the WIPs! I've decided to recap my craft project status for the last WIP Weds of each month, partly for accountability. If I include a list of all the projects I have on the go here, and have to look at them… Continue reading WIP Wrap-Up for January 2019

WIP Wednesday for 23 January 2019

We're on to the first WIP of 2019! Yay! For today, I'm not going to touch on my UFOs, just the projects that I'm actively working on. (We'll get to the UFOs soon, though, I promise.) So, that means we have: 2018 Geek-A-Long blanket (aka the worsted-weight gift one) Multnomah Shawl I don't remember what… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 23 January 2019
