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
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
The Tour de Fleece officially started on July 6th. (Links here to the Ravelry group and more information from Interweave Magazine.) Since I've officially stated here that I'm going to participate again this year, let's see how much I've gotten accomplished so far! https://flic.kr/p/2gtHrDo This is Wonderland Dyeworks fiber in the Blooming Meadow colorway, but… Continue reading WIP Wednesday ~ the Tour de Fleece starts!
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
It’s time for the 26th update on my 101 in 1001 Challenge! If you haven’t been following along on this journey so far or have any questions about what the challenge is, you can check out this link for details. Can you believe we're almost done with summer?
Happy Wednesday! Under a week to Halloween now -- are you ready? Even putting aside Halloween itself, are you ready for Christmas stuff to start creeping in everywhere? (I try to not decorate until after Thanksgiving. That's not the case everywhere, though.) More than that, if you are a knitter: ARE YOUR KNITTED GIFTS READY?… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 25 October 2017
It’s Wednesday, and I have knitting pictures! So that means it’s WIP Weds time! First up today is actually not a knitting project. This is the rest of the Purple Majesty fiber that I spun for the Kitty Mine Crafts spin-along at the end of last year. Technically I have finished it so it’s not… Continue reading WIP Weds ~ a threefold update
I haven’t done a WIP Weds in a while, have I? I guess part of that is because I’m working on Christmas gifts. This time of year is a really bad one for knitting progress pics. There’s really not that much that I can share. However, one thing I can share is the spinning progress… Continue reading WIP Weds ~ the “what can I show you?” edition
I have been aware of the Phat Fiber Sampler Box for ages now. I first became aware of it due to Spincerely Yours, I think, but I only recently started paying attention to the boxes again. At the time I first heard of them, I wanted to get one, but didn’t think I’d have any… Continue reading Phat Fiber!
Oooh, lookie here! A finished object! https://www.flickr.com/photos/ca-bookwyrm/14752872520/ This is the Edelweiss Neckwarmer by Susanna IC. It’s meant to be done as a scarf-type neckwarmer, with buttons to hold it closed. I decided I wanted to seam it up and have it as a cowl. (I’m not 100% sure now that was the right idea, but… Continue reading From Yak To Cowl
