Winter Knitting

For me there is something almost romantic about knitting in the fall and winter. It is what knitting was made for, it’s what you think about when you think about knitting: cozy sweaters, warm mittens, hats, scarves, blankets, slippers, wool yarns, etc. Don’t get me wrong, I love my light airy summertime knit tanks, and […]

The Wonders of Felting

Non-knitters may not be familiar with the term felting, but anyone who has even thrown a wool sweater in the washing machine and had it come sized to fit a small dog, is familiar with the concept. ¬†Being familiar with the concept, people may wonder why any knitter would purposely do that to their work. […]

Inventory

Fall is here and winter is on its way! This is extremely good news for me, seeing as I hate summer (I can see my friend Emily shaking her head at this, she’s a summertime girl). I’m thrilled to see the arrival of cooler weather, and the return of cool weather knitting.For those non-knitters, the […]

Photo Shoot for After Hours Shawl

I’ve been toying with the idea of doing lace for some time now. I’ve even gone as far as to cast on, knit a bit, and then get discouraged and give up. So, I thought a Knit-A-Long (KAL) might just be the way to get one done. One of my favorite places to order sock […]

Whew! And Home Updates.

I sat down today to look at my blog, and realized that it has been over a month since I last posted. This has been a rough summer for blogging. Now, things are slowing down a bit, so I’m going to make an effort to stay caught up on my blogging.The main reason for the […]

Steps to Blocking

The frock camisole is done! It is currently drying on my blocking board, where I am hoping it will block out a little longer. If you are not a knitter, (and even if you are) you may be wondering what blocking is. It is the final step in finishing a knitting project. Well, most knit […]

The Halfway Point

I’m pleased to say that my June socks are finished, with days to spare. And they turned out quite lovely. I am even more pleased to remind everyone that June is the sixth month of the year, meaning I have now completed six pairs of socks in six months. I’m halfway to my goal for […]

Slow and Steady

Progress on the Yggdrasil Blanket has been continuous, but not swift. However the time constraint on the blanket has been lifted. The blanket was originally going to be a wedding present for a dear friend, who is now no longer getting married. I’m trying to keep motivated on the project, though. I don’t want to […]

Nutkin V. Nutkin

The May socks have been finished in a timely manner, just not photographed and blogged about until now.¬† They turned out quite lovely if I do say so myself. This was the second time that I created socks using this pattern, Nutkin.These are the original Nutkins, which turned out very lovely as well. I absolutely […]

Scary Stuff

So, I had a bit of a scare last week. I’m not sure that it is entirely over, but the worst of it is (I hope). Last Tuesday, I go in for my yearly eye exam. No biggie, I’ve been wearing glasses since I was in 7th grade, and I’ve been seeing this particular doctor […]
