A Cardi for Grandma

Quick BookMate update: I was contacted again by the person who sells the BookMates. They are still available for purchase at this new website, and I think a few of the BookMate I cover designs are new. (No affiliation, just an interested reader.)

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.

Yippee!!

Technically, this project took over a year to finish, but a lot of that time was spent in hibernation. If I had worked on this continuously, I estimate the actual time would be [...]

Limbo

I’ve been in a weird sort of knitting limbo or apathy. I knit and knit, but I don’t seem to accomplish anything. Gauge is way off, the fabric sucks, the yarn looks ugly, et cetera.

This has all been caused by several factors, the largest of which is I still haven’t finished seaming the Cropped [...]

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 [...]

Sock Progress

During the past week, I finished the toes and insteps on the Color Blox Sox for 6Sox. I haven’t taken a real progress picture yet because it’s all stockinette. 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 [...]

Lace Poetry

I will be honest. I cringed inwardly when I saw the topic for The Amazing Lace Challenge #3. I enjoy reading poetry now and then. But writing poetry? That’s definitely a challenge for me. I had to think about it for a while. I scribbled various English words. I read Catullus, Homer, and Ovid to [...]
