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 […]

2019 – A Look Ahead

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 […]

2018 – Knitting in Review

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 […]

Whew! Made it!

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.

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 […]

Nope.

So, about 6 inches into the charade sock, I realized a couple things: The sock was coming out smaller than I wanted, so I probably should start over and either cast on more stitches or use bigger needles. It was coming out fine, but I was rather “meh” about it. I wasn’t enjoying working on […]

FO – Vanilla Latte Socks

It took awhile, but I finally have these socks finished! I started them way back in June, and it feels like I’ve been working on them forever. The pattern is Vanilla Latte Socks and I knit them in Baah! by La Jolla in the colorway Make My Heart Sing. Despite taking so long, I’m super happy […]

Grace Clutch as Promised

Here it is, knit, blocked, and assembled! The bag is a bit on the floppy side, but it is a gift for a friend, and I’m letting her make any decisions on lining the bag. Overall, I’m happy with how it turned out. I’m still planning on making another bag, for me. There are a […]

Almost There!

I am finally almost done with the Grace clutch! It feels like I have been working on it forever (for the record, I started it June 1). Saturday evening, I stayed up until I was able to bind of the second half. Sunday afternoon, I soaked it and blocked it out to the correct measurements. […]
