Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

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

Meanwhile, here’s a few small items I recently made. Small projects are great distractions!

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

Socks, ghosts, and links, oh my!

For a while, I was working on my current SOS08 pair, Big Basin (from Six Sox Knitalong). This is the first time I’m using a wool-tencel blend

A new take on the old

Way back in April, I was skimming threads in the Ravelry group, Sock Knitters Anonymous, when I saw a post announcing a sock design contest by Lorna’s Laces.

After reading the rules, I remembered I had some leftover Shepherd Sock from the Slytherin socks. It seemed like a perfect project to work on during the forthcoming [...]

Unfocused

That pretty much sums up how I’ve been feeling lately. I swatch, swatch, swatch, nothing comes out of it. I still have one more secret knitting commitment that hasn’t started yet. I haven’t allowed myself to start any new, exciting, larger-scale projects because of this, which means things around here are boring and/or unsettled. I [...]

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!

Have you any Panda Wool?

I thought this last-minute but thoughtful gift would be a Breeze. But disaster has befallen; I have completely run out of yarn!

Cables and skimpy yardage** turned out to be a bad match. Even though I should’ve known better, I had every faith that what I had (one skein plus a bit leftover from the baby [...]

Implosion

(I think we will reach 2,000 comments this week!? Remember that the lucky poster of the 2,000th comment will win a gift certificate, or if you missed the details, see the bottom of this post.)

I have been quite delinquent on showing some of the nice yarns added to my stash during the past few months. [...]

Kitsch

Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating tomorrow!

I actually started this project several times back in late August-September. I made so many mistakes I finally frogged it and put it aside. An opportunity to try again finally came when I was in a lull between projects.

I hope I’m not causing any bad ’70s flashbacks with [...]

Peach Cuties

This week, I’ve got Jury Duty. I have no idea if I will be selected to sit on a jury, but I suspect I’ll get a lot of knitting done while waiting. I’m planning to take Big Christmas Gift #1 to work on; my goal is to finish a big chunk if not the [...]

Spiralling Surprise

I haven’t been a good blogger/commentator lately; I really appreciate all your comments on my recent posts. I haven’t had time to write up any posts for a while because Grandma was here visiting. Less computer time also means more knitting!

Quick Ravelry aside: Casey has just added an “image slurper” which is being tested [...]
