New Cast Ons

Over the weekend, I cast of for two different projects. Friday night, I cast on for my first of two Grace clutches. I’m starting with the one for my friend, which is going to be bright pink and black. So far, the pattern seems to be pretty straightforward. But I have only knit about an […]

Finished – Roundabout Socks

The Roundabout socks are off of the needles! I’m happy with how they turned out. The yarn and pattern worked really well together. They were a pretty easy knit, and the pattern repeat was easy to remember. The pattern was Roundabout Socks, and I knit them in Bohemian 80/20 from Bohemia Fibers. I knit an […]

The Dreaded Provisional Cast On

Until very recently, I had been avoiding learning to provisionally cast on stitches. Why? That’s a very good question. I’ve been avoiding it because the last time I researched it, the tutorial that came up looked complicated and involved a crochet hook. And I’m a giant, class A chicken when it comes to anything using […]

Stash Diving

As you may remember, I’m working on knitting from my stash more in 2018. So far, I’ve been resisting the temptation to buy yarn, but it is only April. Last week, I decided I needed to make new mittens. I debated between making the Fiddlehead Mittens or some Llama Mittens. Ultimately, I decided on the […]

Viva Las Vegas

Husband and I took a short trip to Las Vegas this week. We left Sunday and were back by Wednesday, which was about the perfect amount of time for a Vegas trip. We went with another couple, friends of ours, A and S. The other couple had been there before, but it was Husband’s and […]

Race to the Finish

My goal was to have my Stone Layers shawl completed before Husband and I left for vacation. We leave on Sunday, I have about 68 rows plus the bind off to go, plus a crapload of ends to weave in, and then I have to block it. I’m not sure I’m going to make it. […]

Weekend Knitting

Last weekend we took a trip with the in-laws. As a Christmas gift, they took our family and Husband’s brother’s family to a water park resort in Wisconsin Dells, a touristy area of Wisconsin about 45 minutes from where we live. It is a fun family time, Kiddo loves having the time with his cousins. […]

Stone Layers

I’m making good progress on my Stone Layers shawl. I have the set up rows and the first couple of color changes done. I’m excited about how fast it is going, but need to remember that I’m increasing every other row, so progress with slow down. The yarn is Sunshine Sock from Sunshine Yarns. A […]

Best Laid Plans

Remember back in this post, when I said I wasn’t starting any new projects until┬áBoth the Shark Attack Blanket and the Padfoot Socks were done. I think we all knew that wasn’t going to happen. Yup, that’s the yarn all balled up and ready to go for my Stone Layers Shawl. The yarn was purchased […]

Nearing the Finish

I’m almost done with the Shark Attack blanket. I finished the teeth, the string ended up being 21 teeth long. To attach them, I started by pinning the middle tooth to the middle of the mouth. Then I started sewing at one end. This should allow me to stretch the teeth or blanket as needed […]
