Third Time’s the Charm

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 […]

Stitch and Pitch 2018

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 […]

Starting Him Early

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 […]

New Cast Ons

Over the weekend, I cast of for two different projects. Friday night, I cast on for my first of two Grace clutches. I’m starting with the one for my friend, which is going to be bright pink and black. So far, the pattern seems to be pretty straightforward. But I have only knit about an […]

Finished – Roundabout Socks

The Roundabout socks are off of the needles! I’m happy with how they turned out. The yarn and pattern worked really well together. They were a pretty easy knit, and the pattern repeat was easy to remember. The pattern was Roundabout Socks, and I knit them in Bohemian 80/20 from Bohemia Fibers. I knit an […]

Waiting to Finish

I’m just about finished with my Downtown Clutch, and I’m super happy with how it looks. I have the bag and the wrist strap knit, seamed, and then ends are woven in. I just need to sew a lining for it (I even have the fabric all picked out). However, I’m going to wait to […]

The Dreaded Provisional Cast On

Until very recently, I had been avoiding learning to provisionally cast on stitches. Why? That’s a very good question. I’ve been avoiding it because the last time I researched it, the tutorial that came up looked complicated and involved a crochet hook. And I’m a giant, class A chicken when it comes to anything using […]

Clutch

Since finishing my Stone Layers shawl, I haven’t been knitting much of anything. I’m plodding along on my Roundabout socks, making slow and steady progress on the leg. I had also cast on for a Gramps Cardigan for Kiddo, but I just can’t get motivated to work on a wool sweater (even a little one) […]

Stash Diving

As you may remember, I’m working on knitting from my stash more in 2018. So far, I’ve been resisting the temptation to buy yarn, but it is only April. Last week, I decided I needed to make new mittens. I debated between making the Fiddlehead Mittens or some Llama Mittens. Ultimately, I decided on the […]

And Done!

See this? It is a finished Stone Layers Shawl. Fresh off of the needles today, ends are woven in, and I did a quick steam block. I may reblock it again after Husband and I get back from our trip. I will get some better photos then too. Kiddo was excited it show it off, […]
