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 […]

Plodding Along

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 […]

With Just Inches to Spare

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 […]

Project Planning

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 […]

Almost There

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 […]

Keep On Stitching

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.  […]

Oh Boy.

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 […]

Next Up – Charade Socks

Now that I have gotten several projects finished, it is time to start some new ones! Of course, that means it is time to get some new socks on the needles. I did some digging in my stash of sock yarn and came across a couple of skeins of a self-striping yarn, Jo-Ann Sensations Bamboo […]
