…Hello Illinois!

(Very belatedly!) Nicole guessed correctly right off the bat after my last post. I’ve moved to UIUC to work on my MLIS (Master in Library and Information Science). I’ve been so frustrated with job hunting and trying to figure out what to do for the rest of my life. The answer finally came to me via [...]

Knitting Comics

If you like webcomics, there’s a new one for knitters: The Knit Princess. It’s on the cute side, but the material will certainly be familiar to us knitters! It started very recently, so you’ll be able to catch up quickly.

Many of you will already have heard of Handknit Heroes from blogs or Ravelry. It’s a [...]

2009: Planning

I recently upgraded WordPress on this blog and decided a makeover was in order. It took several tries (I hoped to find a magazine style layout that worked to my liking, but no luck), and I really like the new look. Fresh and simple at the same time. I hope you all like it too. [...]

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

The dog sweater? It is done, steeks and all! I finished it last Friday. Pictures coming soon!

This baby hat is part of the test-knit mentioned earlier.

Happily, I’ve finalized the layout for [...]

Stripes

In case it isn’t obvious from my blog theme, I love the color combination of purple and green. I have two skeins of Opal Prisma, one in each color – 1192 (green) and 1195 (purple). I’ve come up with several ways to use the two colors in socks. There’s a poll at the end [...]

Nada

I have absolutely nothing to show you all. How depressing! I have been in a state of limbo since finishing the Logan wrap and English Crystal square. I’m in the middle of several secret projects. Thus far, it’s been mostly “hurry up and wait.” Yarn has arrived for only one project, which I’ve swatched; but [...]

ID10T

(Surprise! I have finally rolled out my new blog theme. Simple, but cute, and totally me. Stop by and check it out!)

Remember these socks? Frogged them. I thought the yarn (Omo) would be nice with something lacy. How about Jeanie? Pretty cables and dropped stitches? What could not be more fun?
