Third Time’s the Charm

My Grace Clutch has been the cause of a lot of┬áheadaches, but things are looking up. Right away, I got off to a bad start. I was a few rows in and noticed my stitch count was off. While I’m still not sure what happened, something was definitely off and I had to rip it […]

Stitch and Pitch 2018

Many of my posts on adventures from this summer are going to be in random order. I’m working on getting caught up. Early June, my mom and I took a trip down to Milwaukee (about 3 hours from home) to cheer on the Brewers and knit at the Stitch and Pitch event. We have made […]

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 […]
