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.
My sock slump is finally broken! The cure? Some fun self-striping worsted weight sock yarn!
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.
(Many thanks for everyone’s kind comments about the bunny pullover. I’ve been so focused on my Olympic knitting that email, blog-reading, and the like have fallen by the wayside, sorry!)
The Ravelry is doing a fun knit/crochet/spin/dye/whatever-along during the 2008 Olympics, with over 5500 members participating. I signed up with two projects and two teams: The [...]

As I was working on the hats mentioned in the previous post, Abigail posted her new dishcloth pattern. I was intrigued by the rounded corners and decided I needed a break [...]
I finally got a picture of the completed project, so now I can post about it.
First, here’s a another peek that I meant to share before I got bogged down with the holiday knitting rush.
Have you ever misplaced a needle, only to find it in the laundry a few days later?
I’ve been busy! I finished the Flamingo socks and mailed them off, sans mutant Zebras. The person who will receive the Zebras has already returned to the Cities, so I will gift these separately. Pictures are forthcoming.
I took [...]
Now that my deadline knitting has completed, I should’ve returned to my other WIPs, like the Color Blox Sox, Rock and Weave socks, or the Cropped Cardi. But I didn’t.
Faced with a sort-of deadline for August, I dug out the Lion Brand Wool I bought earlier this year and started a stranded two-color swatch. I’ve [...]
