Broken

I have gotten almost no knitting done this week. I’ve tried three different projects and gauge was way off on all of them. A hat project I’m trying to start seems cursed; the join keeps twisting, argh! A DPN broke and I had no extras (not a sockish size (2.25 through 3 mm), of which [...]

Aberration

I’ve been struggling with a lack of focus. I can’t concentrate on my current projects. I desperately want to cast on something new, or even worse, buy new yarn. (It’s that time of the year, when fall catalogs full of beautiful, warm sweater designs and accompanying richly colored yarns arrive in my mailbox; it’s only [...]

I cast off Logan last night, and managed to get a so-so picture in the waning daylight.

Long day, but nothing to show for it

Today started out well, really, it did. I went walkabout in the neighborhood for 40 minutes and took my knitting with me. I didn’t see a soul while I was out, (this was about 8:45 to 9:30), but it was a good walk. I got through an orange stripe on the Madder socks. I’m nearly done [...]
