Just for me

Even in the midst of crazy, stealthy holiday knitting, a knitter’s got to make something just for herself, right?

Vested

A few days before Christmas, I finished the main knitting of the big gray blob. It was so big I had to be very careful when picking it up and carrying it, lest it get stretched out. For extra peace of mind, I waited to take a pre-felting picture until I had basted together most [...]

Somewhat Plain

Whee! These are the last pair of socks I needed to finish for holiday knitting. The original plan was to incorporate the leftovers from the other Italian series with this last colorway. That didn’t work out because I used up all of the yarn with the Broadripple and Yarrow socks. Nevertheless, these turned out [...]

Triple-patterned

As I finished up the baby items back in September, I was really craving stimulation; I wanted to knit something a bit complicated, something that required a lot of attention. I knew stranded colorwork was exactly what I needed.

This is only my second stranded project (and fourth where I’ve used my left hand). [...]

Gauging Felt

Before I began work on the two big gifts due later this year, I realized I needed to knit and then full at least one swatch. Normally I don’t worry about gauge and size for felted items since the fulling process controls the end result. These two gifts I’m making are a bit more complicated [...]

Still cursed, but…

Quick question! Is anyone doing a Stash Flash on April 1 again this year?

I’m still battling the sock curse. Meanwhile, I’ve got an almost FO and a FO to show you all!!
