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 […]

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 […]

Best Laid Plans

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

Testing Out Shark Attack Blanket

Kiddo decided to try out the almost completed Shark Attack blanket. I think he’s a fan. I’m knitting away on the teeth. Each individual tooth goes quickly, but I have to make a lot of them. The strip of teeth needs to be long enough to go all the way around the shark’s mouth.

Progress

I’m getting close to finishing the Shark Attack blanket for Kiddo. I have the body and fins knit and assembled. The original pattern had a pelvic fin on the bottom, but I couldn’t get that to look right, so I left it off. The fins are lightly stuffed to give them a little more body. […]

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. So far in my knitting journey, it is the opposite for me, the second sock seems to go faster than the first. […]

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, […]

WIP Wednesday: Third Time’s the Charm (Hyperion Pullover)

There are times when knitting can be frustrating. ┬áMistakes happen, it is inevitable. Some mistake you fix, some you just go on and learn to live with them, and some force you to scrap everything and start over. And that has been the story with the Hyperion Pullover, twice. The first time, after about five […]

WIP Wednesday: Clearview Cowl

Progress has been very slow and very uneventful on the Hyperion Pullover. The yolk is a honeycomb lace pattern, which looks very nice and will be delightful for a summer sweater, but is also rather time consuming to knit. It is also one of those stitch patterns where I actually have to pay attention when […]
