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?
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
I did finish the last sleeve of the cardigan (Last sleeve sounds like I'm an octopus, second would be more accurate). Now I need to block and finish, but I decided to start a pair of socks. I want to make a pair for E's teacher. E's having a great year, and I would like … Continue reading A slight diversion
Well, last I wrote about the Riverbed Architecture Socks that I'm making for Chad, I thought I had done the heel wrong. So, I tried knitting the second sock the way I thought it should work, and asked Chad to try it on. The first one fit much better (which I have to admit, if … Continue reading Socktober!
So, I tried the second sock knitting based on my understanding of the pattern. Of course it looked A LOT different, and didn't fit as well as the first. Which actually was a good thing, because all I had to rip back was the heel. I have to admit a sense of relief that I … Continue reading Socks – Must they Match?
So, I was working my way through the second sock of the Riverbed Architecture socks that I'm working on and the time came to start the heel. So I read through the instructions twice, and realized that if I was reading them correctly this time, I'd done the first sock incorrectly. I didn't do the … Continue reading Failure to read
Well, it appears that I need to do a little catch up. I have been knitting and thinking a lot about new projects. I did finally finish the pieces of Pieman: Now I need to assemble it. I did delay that for two reasons, as the weather finally became seasonal in August and we saw … Continue reading Progress and finishing: kid’s knitting
Huh, last time I posted, it was November. Go figure. Since then, I've been busy, but do I have lots of pictures to share? Oh no. For some reason I can't find any of the pictures I'm sure I took over the past three and a half months. I did finish my November sweater, Grape … Continue reading Catching up
The knitting continues. After finishing the first Cleopatra sock, I decided I needed a simpler sock to work on in the car and traveling. I cast on a nanner sock! I've finished one, and have gone back to the cleopatra socks. No photos, the second looks a lot like the first. Today I picked up … Continue reading Planning for fall, and beyond
I finished the first sock today. It's a little hard to take pictures of your own foot, so here's my best effort: Here's the snake: The sock seems a little small, but I like it so far. My daughter wants me to make a pair for her after I finish these. so I'll need to … Continue reading One Cleopatra Sock
