Finally Finished!

The Primavera socks are officially (and finally) done! It feels like I’ve been knitting on these things forever, which isn’t too far off, since it took me about seven months to get them completed. Overall, they turned out fine. I’m not wowed by them or anything, but there isn’t really anything wrong with them. Now […]

Stitch and Pitch 2019

Summer is (unofficially) here, and that means it is time to head to Miller Park for another Stitch and Pitch game. My mom and I have been making this an annual (well, annual-ish, we’ve missed a few) tradition for the two of us. So last Tuesday, we headed down to Milwaukee to catch the game […]

Meh.

I finished the first of my primavera socks and am working on the cuff of the second. Normally, this would be exciting news, since the second sock usually seems to go faster for me, but I just can’t bring myself to be excited about this particular project. I haven’t been crazy about the project for […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
