Kinda meh

Yesterday’s snowfall was pretty, but hard to clean up. I am really tired today from all the shoveling. Carol E of Giraffe Dreams has good photos of the snowstorm if you want to see.

Now, the recently completed project that was just meh? It’s a rug.

Dad’s Cardigan

Here’s another gift for Dad, a cozy cardigan. I really liked the texture motif that continued from the cuff up the sleeve and saddle. It’s technically a jacket, and is knit with bulky yarn, so it was relatively quick to knit.

Gansey in Triplicate

So, apparently, Mom and I created a monster when we collaborated on the first Gansey Watch Cap. It led to another, very similar hat, after which Dad asked for of his own (in the same two-color style) in maroon and gold, the U of MN Gopher colors.

Potholders

By chance, I found out that Metro Meals on Wheels were asking for donations of handmade (knit, crochet, or sew) potholders. They would be used by drivers or given to clients. They are looking to collect 800 by this coming holiday season (deadline Dec 5), but have an ongoing goal of 8,000. Look for the [...]

But what to make? Hats! I needed to add a [...]

A little cheese, a little whine

I cast-on for my first project of the new year last Friday. I was full of excitement, hope, and knitting promise. The yarn was a good match for the pattern, light colored with good stitch definition. A very good start!

Old and New

I continue to gain yardage. 

First, I splurged a little bit after I received my income tax refund. I couldn’t resist the colors of that Fortissima (Mexico Evolution Silver), perfect for Project Spectrum. I hope I can start them next month!

Sockin’ Along

Lily has just announced Sugar ‘n Cream Twists, a marl/ragg version of their cotton. The color selection is small but respectable; I’ll have to keep an eye out for them around here.

I’ve been working on the Fluted Banister socks every time I go mall-walking. I can finish 1-2 inches in a hour, so it takes [...]
