Belated Birthday

After almost two months of crazy deadlines, I was eager to knit something at a relaxed pace. Since my birthday was coming up, I thought I ought to make myself something. I chose this design, because I thought it might go well with my dresses.

Ravelympics 2008: FO #1

Whew, I finished my first project for the Ravelympics on Monday! :) I’m really happy with the results. It wasn’t a difficult pattern, but was time-consuming. With this, I earned medals in Sweater Sprint and Colorwork Cross-Country.

Ravelympics 2008: Days 1-7

(Many thanks for everyone’s kind comments about the bunny pullover. I’ve been so focused on my Olympic knitting that email, blog-reading, and the like have fallen by the wayside, sorry!)

The Ravelry is doing a fun knit/crochet/spin/dye/whatever-along during the 2008 Olympics, with over 5500 members participating. I signed up with two projects and two teams: The [...]

A year later than intended, I presented Grandma with the Cropped Cardigan [...]

At long last!

Can you believe it? I finally finished the Cropped Cardigan; all the seams have been sewn, ends woven in, and buttons attached.

That’s the story of my life in two words. I’m sure it happens to everyone now and then. I feel like this, oh, about 80% of the time.

During breaks from the Yarrow Ribbed socks, I resumed the Cropped Cardigan project. I feel so bad for neglecting it (and for far longer than I [...]
