Progress has been slow and not so steady on my Primavera socks. I have knit through the heel turn and am starting the gusset decreases for the first sock. I’m not entirely unhappy with how the socks are turning out, but I’m not really happy with them either. For lack of a better word, I’m […]

I’ve finished the outer layer of my Luffe mittens. The closer I got to the end, the more nervous I was. I had one ball of Telemark yarn in black (and of course, it is a discontinued yarn) and I was worried about running out. I ended up having enough, with just this much left […]

I’m making good progress on the Luffe mittens. In just a couple days, I’ve knit the first mitten through the increases for the thumb gusset. I stuck with my original plan to knit the outside of the mitten in grey and black stripes. I’m making these out of Telemark, a now discontinued sport weight wool […]

Since finishing the puppy stuffie for Kiddo, I haven’t really done much knitting. I’m working on the heel of my primavera socks, but progress on those has been pretty slow. Instead of actually knitting, it seems that I’m spending much more of my time right now thinking about knitting. I spent some time cleaning up […]

Happy 2019! As I mentioned in the last post, I didn’t do fantastically at meeting my fiber goals in 2018. However, 2019 is a new year, so I might as well set some new goals for this year. I’m planning on continuing with my stash reduction goal. However tracking skeins in versus skeins out didn’t […]

So my goal on Raverly was to knit 15 projects this year, which was wildly optimistic, especially when you consider that last year I only finished 6 projects. In 2018, I will finish the year with 8 completed projects and a pair of socks on the needles.  Looking back, here is what I finished in […]

The Puppy Love stuffie is complete! I just barely made it by my end of the year deadline. Despite being a giant pain to knit, he did turn out super cute. And super huge. But Kiddo seems to like him, so that is the important part.

I’d really like to get the puppy stuffie for Kiddo done by the end of the year. I’m not at all sure that I will be able to get it done, seeing as how the end of the year is just three days away, but I’m going to give it my best shot. Aside from […]

I haven’t made any major progress in my knitting projects. I’ve finished all four legs and am starting on the body of the puppy stuffie for kiddo. It has reminded me just how much I hate working with novelty eyelash yarn. However, the stuffie should turn out soft and cuddly, so that is a win.  […]

Kiddo has requested a puppy stuffie. He’s not much of a stuffie kid, but is insisting that he needs one. I’m not one to say no to Kiddo’s request for hand knit goods, so I’be cast on for a puppy, using Puppy Love pattern. I let Kiddo have input on the yarn, and he found […]
