Roundabout

I’ve already started my next pair of socks. This time, I’ve decided to go with the Roundabout Socks. It seems like a pretty simple pattern, and it has been in my Ravelry Queue forever (there are a lot of patterns like that). I’m using Bohemian 80/20 which is from one of my favorite dyers, Bohemia […]

Done and Done!

I have finished BOTH¬†Shark Attack blanket and the Padfoot Birthday socks! The Shark Attack blanket has been finished for a couple of days, but I was waiting to get some pictures of Kiddo with the finished product. However, Kiddo has been sick and is feeling less than photogenic lately, so I will have to get […]

Best Laid Plans

Remember back in this post, when I said I wasn’t starting any new projects until¬†Both 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 […]

Halfway Point

Ta-dah! The first of my Padfoot Socks is done! Lots of knitters talk about the dreaded “Second Sock Syndrome,” where they struggle to find the motivation to start or finish that second sock.

But, now, I have reason to celebrate, as I am finally done with my speckled space socks, which I started back […]

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. […]
