SRP: 2nd Half of July

My brain has pretty much fried from the high heat we’ve had lately. But I did get a fair amount of reading done.

Color Blox Sox

They’re done! And just in time for the 6Sox deadline! : )

I didn’t spend much time on these socks for most of July for two reasons. I was so busy and tired from work, I needed “faster” projects (using thicker, worsted weight yarns). And I stalled on the swirling pattern. Last weekend, I picked them [...]

Same Story

Apologies to any readers out there. I’m still unable to devote the time needed to post here regularly. I finally learned what’s going on at work and it appears that I will continue filling in every day for another two more weeks. I also had a little trouble with my camera this weekend… I need to [...]

I’m really behind right now. I owe zillions of emails. I have lots of photos to transfer and crop. My SYAC swap pal received her socks, yay! I was surprised last week by two wonderful packages in the mail, one from my SP8 and the other from Atlantis (1SSP), wowee! I will blog about these [...]

I’ve yet another work-filled week in the works. Yesterday I was so tired I didn’t think I could even *gasp* knit… but after a delicious meal of farmer-market-fresh veggies, I felt better and did start a hat cuff. Today I’m pretty tired again, so I won’t do the planned SRP update.

I noticed a few weeks [...]

I did finish the heels last night, and they look great and fit very well, yay! I enjoyed this type of toe-up heel-flap-gusset construction. It seemed [...]

Swap Socks and a Cuff

These warm socks are on their way to their recipient in Australia, so I’ll post a little picture now. I got some funny striping with the Super Glitz (Cherry Tree Hill, DK weight, colorway River Run). See?

Still here!

I’ve been busy at work (ick, they asked me at the very last minute to work for the rest of the week when I had thought I would be off). I’ve been too tired to blog when I get home, but I do have pictures and posts to share. I’ll get started on these catch-up [...]

Now that my deadline knitting has completed, I should’ve returned to my other WIPs, like the Color Blox Sox, Rock and Weave socks, or the Cropped Cardi. But I didn’t.

Faced with a sort-of deadline for August, I dug out the Lion Brand Wool I bought earlier this year and started a stranded two-color swatch. I’ve [...]

Swap Fun and Classes

I’ve reverted the blog back to the default theme/skin. (July already!) If you’re registered here, you can change back to the blue theme by editing your account (the theme section is near the bottom). I’ll leave it there for a while. : )

SYAC Update

They’re finally done!
