A Christmas Stocking

During Grandma’s recent visit, I showed her a couple of books filled with Christmas Stocking designs. I told her to pick a couple that she liked, and that I would make her one for the coming holiday.

I wanted to name this post “Steeking is Fun”

(Edited to Add: Grandma wants to say Hello to her neighbor Dorothy!) But I thought that might scare away some people!

The story of a little skein

(Quick note: My dad’s health has declined since his long illness a couple years ago. This past summer, he was accepted as a candidate for a heart transplant, and last week, he was admitted to the hospital and is now waiting for a new heart. My cousin up north is also in the hospital with [...]

Veni, vidi, vici

Remember these terrible, horrible, no good, very bad socks? I was tired of them hanging around, unfinished and making this knitter all kinds of unhappy.

No more!

A Cardi for Grandma

Not the Usual Suspects

Another pair finished! I’ll update my sidebar after this.

I used a lone Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock skein in the Bucks Bar colorway. You can see in the below picture how subtle the colors blend and stripe.

Unexpected Delay

I finished the sockettes on Saturday night, but even though I bound off loosely, they wouldn’t fit over my heel. Which means they wouldn’t fit Grandma. So…. I undid the bind-off and tried a loose crochet bind-off. Didn’t work. Undid that, and tried a very loose sewn bind-off. It helped, but not very much. Clearly, I needed [...]
