Card Wreath

Every now and then, I actually do some sort of craft project that is not knitting related. This is one of those crafts. Christmas cards seem to be a big deal in both Husband’s and my families. I think we sent out almost 50 cards this year! This means we get a lot of cards […]

Knitting for Kiddo

I don’t knit a lot for other people. If I’m going to put the time and effort into a hand knit item, I want to make sure the person receiving it will properly appreciate all the effort. As hard as it is for me to understand, some people just don’t place the same value on […]

Finally, A FO!

It feels like it has been a long, long time since I have actually finished a knitting project. Between preparing for the AAP test, and life in general, my knitting time had been pretty limited. But, now, I have reason to celebrate, as I am finally done with my speckled space socks, which I started back […]

Ugh.

Overall, I have a pretty good finishing rate on my knitting projects. It may take a while (sometimes a long while), but I usually end up with a finished object. Every now and then, however, I run into that project that I just cannot get through. Try as I might, I just cannot get the […]

Galena Girls’ Weekend

Every summer, a couple of my girlfriends from high school and I try to get together for a couple of days. Well, mostly every summer, I think we’re 3 out of the last 4 summers, which is pretty good, if you ask me. This year, we decided to check out Galena, IL. Two of us, […]

Stitch and Pitch

Summer started off with a bang around here (I know, it isn’t really summer, yet, but Memorial Day weekend has come and gone, so let’s call it close enough). It seems like the past couple of weekends have been full with very little time for knitting, writing, or much else. I’m hoping to get a […]

WIP Wednesday: A Lefty’s Struggle

I’m a left handed knitter. During my knitting journey, I have discovered two (very different) attitudes about lefties and knitting. Knitting is two handed, so there is no right or left handed knitting. Knit the same way as everyone else and move on. Left handing knitting is really a thing, left handed knitting is done […]

Project Slump

I’m in a knitting slump. I haven’t even picked up needles and yarn for almost two weeks now. I’m just a couple of inches shy of finishing my Clearview Cowl. If I really dug in and stuck to it, I could have it finished by the end of the week. But I’m bored with it. […]

FO Friday: Siobhan Part 2 – The Magic of Blocking

Blocking is one of those things that not every knitter does. My mom, for example has been knitting for years and had never blocked a project up until about three years ago. I don’t know that she has blocked on since. I’m a big fan of blocking, though it isn’t something that I do on […]

WIP Wednesday: Car Knitting

In the past week, I have spent about 10 hours total in car traveling for work. Luckily, both times, I have been traveling with coworkers, who drove, which allowed me to take advantage of one of the big perks of traveling for work. Paid knitting time.   When selecting an appropriate project for car knitting, […]
