I wanted to name this post “Steeking is Fun”

(Edited to Add: Grandma wants to say Hello to her neighbor Dorothy!) But I thought that might scare away some people!

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.

Dog Days

It’s been a while since I last updated you all on Dad. He was able to go home in early October (nearly a month after the surgery). Last week, he had trouble breathing and the doctors found fluid around his lungs, so he was re-admitted to the hospital for treatment. He’s still at the hospital [...]

I was really suprprised at how quickly I was able to knit these. It took only 6 days (I took one day off to seam and finish the Loon sweater). Considering that these are my first ever pair of stranded colorwork socks, I’m very happy with them.

Nobody named Ryan here

(Note 1: Sorry about the spot of technical difficulties; after I first published this post, it unpublished itself somehow, and when I went back to reset the status, half the information was gone, so I had to reconstruct it. Note 2: What the heck? It happened AGAIN! I’m not gonna re-reconstruct this silly (and [...]

Green Aviator

Here’s another project that flew off the needles! Of course, it helps that Lopi is bulky. Lately, I’ve been enamored with Lopi patterns and have added some (both vintage and new) booklets from Reynolds or Ístex to my library. When rummaging through my stash for an easy, quick project, I found two skeins of greenish [...]

Very Warm Hat

Here’s a Finished Object that I’m very late blogging. It’s also my very first EZ project. FuzzyBritches’ Warm Up the Winter gave me the perfect opportunity to knit a Very Warm Hat, which I’ve wanted to knit for quite a while now.
