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
I finished the front of Pieman. I seriously hope this sweater isn't too big. Now I'm reading others have done much smaller sizes for kids about E's age. I'm still happy with how this is turning out. I've gotten yarn for my next project, even though I haven't finished this one. Today I wound some … Continue reading Progress on the Pieman and a new project
I've been plowing through E's new sweater. The back is complete: Here's a close up of the cable detail: Once I got the pattern memorized, it really started to fly. I do need to pay attention, as I've had to tink back a few cables to correct the direction on occassion. Other than that I'm … Continue reading Pie Man & Spinning!
So, I've often followed the NaKniSweMo progress the past 2 years and thought about it. Somehow I never got it together to knit along. Well this year, the stars aligned and I seem to be well on my way to knitting a sweater this November. I have yet to calculate if it's 50,000 stitches, but … Continue reading Sweater in November?

My daughter wants me to make a pair for her after I finish these. so I'll need to … Continue reading One Cleopatra Sock
My Cleopatra Sock is moving along. It feels like it's moving pretty quickly, as I am encouraged to see what the next step will bring. I turned the heel: And I've wrapped the snake around the ankle: After knitting more last night, I'm nearly ready to start the head!
I figured out the attachment of the asp. These socks are pretty addictive! I don't have much to say, the yarn is wonderful, and the pattern is a lot of fun!
So officially the summer of socks started June 21. But in my standard style, I'm behind. I started the Cleopatra socks two nights ago. Of course, I messed up and had to rip out and start again yesterday, but I mastered the toe! I started the asp last night, but am still trying to understand … Continue reading Summer of Socks Begun!
Having finished my Eyelet Cardi, I decided I wanted a spring summer sweater. Of course I want it now, but I'll have to wait till I finish it. I've started it and am enjoying this yarn. This is a cotton soy blend from Sublime: Sublime Soya Cotton: It's knitting up relatively quickly, the yarn is … Continue reading On the needles, off the needles and looking toward the summer
Having admitted that I'm a true project knitter I seemed to have whipped through the Eyelet Cardi. I had some Jo Sharp DK Wool in Porcelain that I'd bought at Webs a few years ago. I started it last month and finished it last night. With the weather as cool as it's been, I even got … Continue reading A new sweater!
