It's been a rainy week, and therefore no good photo opportunities, I've decided to resurrect a post I started on a plane a few months ago. I've never been a big reader of non-fiction. Rather ironic considering I was a history major. Perhaps it's because these the non-fiction that's usually recommended to me is business … Continue reading Learning/improving
I seem to have created quite a queue of finishing projects for myself. I've knitted all the pieces of my ruffled cardigan and finished the Lintella as well. I need to block and assemble the cardigan (now that I found the sleeves that I'd managed to misplace for three days), block the Lintella, and I … Continue reading Travel knitting
Wow, this summer flew by - a sentiment I've heard by many people this summer. We've had a wonderul one - filled with softball, sand and swimming. And a bit of knitting, but not as much as I'd hoped. I've been focusing on two projects this summer. My Lintilla, and a baby sweater that I … Continue reading Summer?
As spring is in the air in the northern hemisphere and those in the southern hemisphere start setting their sights for the arrival of winter, a lot of crocheters and knitters find that their crafting changes along with their wardrobe. Have a look through your finished projects and explain the seasonality of your craft to … Continue reading 3KCBWDAY4 – A Knitter or Crocheter For All Seasons?
Today's topic is an interesting one, an opportunity to talk about a knitter or crocheter who has inspired me in some way. There are many many amazing people out there whose work I admire, and inspire me on a regular basis. However for this assignment, I'd like to talk about someone I've never met. My … Continue reading 3KCBWDAY3 – Your Knitting Or Crochet Hero
This blog week is definitely making me think about what I do with my craft. Today's topic is a photography challenge. Writing my posts at the end of the day is both good and bad. Good in that I can check out all the other posts on this topic to get a feel for what … Continue reading 3KCBWDAY2 – Photography Challenge Day
I had not heard of this, but after reading Rock + Purl's post today, I took a trip over, and thought it sounded like fun! So, in the spirit of Kim Werker's Rut Race, I'll try this for the week! Plus one week seems like a smaller bite than the 30 days I did last … Continue reading KCBW2012 Day 1 – Color
A few weeks ago, I was reading Turtle Girls' Blog and she mentioned a mystery knitalong that she was running with her friend from Dragonfly Fibers - the Djinni Sock. I was smitten, but knew I had to finish my monsters. I picked out a nice purple (before I read Christi's warning about not using … Continue reading Wednesday WIP: Socks
It's no secret that I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the monsters I've been knitting. I love them, but I do like some variety in my projects. When I entered my latest project in Ravelry I realized the monster I finished yesterday was the 4th one. I'm done with monsters for a while. … Continue reading Rut Race: Days 1 & 2
While the monsters are taking a lot of my time, I do have another project on the needles. I decided it was time to try a shawlette. Many of the podcasts I listen to have been talking about them, from Stash & Burn to Double Knit and The Knitmore Girls, it seems that whenever I … Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Trying something new
