So, about 6 inches into the charade sock, I realized a couple things: The sock was coming out smaller than I wanted, so I probably should start over and either cast on more stitches or use bigger needles. It was coming out fine, but I was rather “meh” about it. I wasn’t enjoying working on […]

Now that I have gotten several projects finished, it is time to start some new ones! Of course, that means it is time to get some new socks on the needles. I did some digging in my stash of sock yarn and came across a couple of skeins of a self-striping yarn, Jo-Ann Sensations Bamboo […]

It took awhile, but I finally have these socks finished! I started them way back in June, and it feels like I’ve been working on them forever. The pattern is Vanilla Latte Socks and I knit them in Baah! by La Jolla in the colorway Make My Heart Sing. Despite taking so long, I’m super happy […]

Here it is, knit, blocked, and assembled! The bag is a bit on the floppy side, but it is a gift for a friend, and I’m letting her make any decisions on lining the bag. Overall, I’m happy with how it turned out. I’m still planning on making another bag, for me. There are a […]

Holy crap. It is November. I feel like I lost a couple of months there. One of my summer (and into fall) projects was my first real attempt at refinishing furniture. Several years ago, one of my aunts gave me a buffet table that had belonged to my grandmother. It was a piece of furniture […]

I am finally almost done with the Grace clutch! It feels like I have been working on it forever (for the record, I started it June 1). Saturday evening, I stayed up until I was able to bind of the second half. Sunday afternoon, I soaked it and blocked it out to the correct measurements. […]

My Grace Clutch has been the cause of a lot of headaches, but things are looking up. Right away, I got off to a bad start. I was a few rows in and noticed my stitch count was off. While I’m still not sure what happened, something was definitely off and I had to rip it […]

Many of my posts on adventures from this summer are going to be in random order. I’m working on getting caught up. Early June, my mom and I took a trip down to Milwaukee (about 3 hours from home) to cheer on the Brewers and knit at the Stitch and Pitch event. We have made […]

I took Kiddo yarn shopping the other day. That is something that I haven’t done since he was super little. But, we were doing some school shopping, and ended up near Unwound a yarn store in downtown LaCrosse. I had heard from one of Husband’s relatives (a non-knitter) that the store was wonderful and I […]

Every year, a couple of my friends from high school and I try to plan a quick get away. We’ve been to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin; Stillwater, Minnesota, and Galena, Illinois. This year, we decided to check out Duluth, Minnesota. Duluth is about a 3 1/2 hour drive from where I live, so it was a […]
