Wedding Mittens

2019 is most definitely the year of mittens. I started out the year with my Luffe mittens. Which turned out super cute and warm. I also was proud that I used all stash yarn to make the mittens. Sadly, the mittens only made it a few weeks before I lost one. Despite checking at all […]

Finally Finished!

The Primavera socks are officially (and finally) done! It feels like I’ve been knitting on these things forever, which isn’t too far off, since it took me about seven months to get them completed. Overall, they turned out fine. I’m not wowed by them or anything, but there isn’t really anything wrong with them. Now […]

Stitch and Pitch 2019

Summer is (unofficially) here, and that means it is time to head to Miller Park for another Stitch and Pitch game. My mom and I have been making this an annual (well, annual-ish, we’ve missed a few) tradition for the two of us. So last Tuesday, we headed down to Milwaukee to catch the game […]

Adventures in Thrumming

Just a couple of weeks after I finished them, one of my Luffe mittens went missing. I was pretty bummed, especially since this year, we seemed to be having a never ending winter. Around the same time as the mittens went missing, a nearby yarn store, Unwound, had a thrummed mitten class. This was actually […]

Work Perk

As I mentioned, a couple of posts ago, I recently started a new job as a bank auditor. So far everything is going really well. It does mean I’m traveling for work more, usually just day trips around Wisconsin. What I didn’t think about until this week, though, was a hidden perk of that. Yarn […]

Hobo Bag with Cables

A few months ago, a friend’s daughter asked if I would knit her a bag. She really didn’t have many requirements, she just wanted to a blue knit bag. Now, I’m pretty picky about who I knit for, but her mother is on my “knit-worthy” list, and she is a delightful young lady, so I […]

Then Life Gets in the Way

Somehow, out of nowhere, it is May. I’m not really sure how all of that happened, but it did. The last couple of months all sort of blur together for me. Hopefully, things are settling down now. Starting the beginning of February and up until a couple of weeks ago, I was busy slogging through […]

Meh.

I finished the first of my primavera socks and am working on the cuff of the second. Normally, this would be exciting news, since the second sock usually seems to go faster for me, but I just can’t bring myself to be excited about this particular project. I haven’t been crazy about the project for […]

Knitting Weather

The past couple of days it has been cold here. Like we haven’t had school all week (today’s Thursday) and my bank was closed yesterday cold. The high yesterday (yes high) was -12, without the wind chill. I’ve been home with Kiddo for the past two days (thankfully, my mom helped out Monday and Tuesday), […]

Luffe Mittens – Done!

I finished my first project of 2019! The Luffe mittens are done. The grey and black stripes turned out nicely. But it is the lining that really makes the mittens. If I had used a solid yarn for the lining, they would have looked less busy. But, I like the yarn I used, the colors […]
