Testing Out Shark Attack Blanket

Kiddo decided to try out the almost completed Shark Attack blanket. I think he’s a fan. I’m knitting away on the teeth. Each individual tooth goes quickly, but I have to make a lot of them. The strip of teeth needs to be long enough to go all the way around the shark’s mouth.

FO Friday: Tauremorna Mitts

When I first started knitting, I thought fingerless gloves were one of the dumbest things ever. I didn’t understand why anyone would want a pair of gloves that doesn’t cover their fingers. I live in Wisconsin, I understand cold temperatures and dressing for the weather, fingers are the part of the hand that get cold […]

WIP Wednesday: Hyperion Pullover

At this moment, I don’t have much on the needles for Work In Progress (WIP) Wednesday. I have several projects in the hopper that I’m getting ready to cast on, but the only active project is the Hyperion Pullover. However, I haven’t progressed beyond the first sleeve. As of last night, I had about 3 […]

WIP Wednesday: Bigger on the Inside

By now it is no secret, I love my iPad. For day to day use, it has replaced my laptop (though I still need the laptop for a couple of things, including printing). When I first got my iPad, I purchased a couple of accessories to ensure that it was protected (especially after the nasty […]

It’s Going to Be a Great Day!

There are few better ways to start a Saturday than to find a box from Knitpicks waiting on my front porch. Contents include some Wool of the Andes Tonal in Gypsy Queen (red) for the Milk Run Shawl (Rav. Link) and some Comfy Worsted in Celestial (blue), white, and black for a Tardis iPad sleeve, […]

Long Overdue Sheepcote Photos

Okay, so I finished this sweater way back in March. I just never got around to posting the pictures of it, which have been sitting on my camera since March. But here they are now. Late winter/early spring was a bit of a blah time for me, but hopefully spring and summer will renew my […]

Project Talk: Some Assembly Required

As a process knitter, I’m not a huge fan of finishing work. Why waste the time doing silly things like blocking, weaving in ends, and sewing seams when you could be actually knitting. I would think finding the motivation to finish would be easier for project orientated knitters, as it is a vital step in […]

Adventures in Pattern Writing: Episode 3, Perfectionism Rears Its Ugly Head (Again)

I’m what you might call a selective perfectionist. Some things I can just slap together and not care, but when it comes to knitting, I’ll redo, redo, redo until I’m happy with the results. While this tendency can product some particularly excellent results, but it also has been the cause of massive amounts of frustration, […]

Adventures in Pattern Writing: Episode 2, Cue the Panic

Who’d of guessed that these sockswould cause so much trouble? If you follow my blog regularly, or if you browse back through some past posts, you know that last July, I designed and made a pair of Green Bay Packer socks for her birthday. Ever since they came off the needles, I have been meaning […]

Project Talk: I’m Going to Go Ahead and Blame the Weather

Cubist Socks-Done! The weather around here has been absolutely ridiculous, it is early January the temperature is going to be almost 50 today. Global warming, the beginning of the apocalypse, forewarning of the impending zombie uprising, or freak weather abnormality? It is hard to say. Most of the people who come into the bank seem […]
