The battle may be lost, but the war is not over

I tried to knit myself some socks. I really tried. All I can offer as evidence is this slightly blurry photo of stockinette.

p align=”center” The problem? I hated the short-row heels I used. They were too small.

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 [...]

Ravelympics 2008: FO #1

Whew, I finished my first project for the Ravelympics on Monday! :) I’m really happy with the results. It wasn’t a difficult pattern, but was time-consuming. With this, I earned medals in Sweater Sprint and Colorwork Cross-Country.

Ravelympics 2008: Days 1-7

(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!)

Multiplicity

I managed to squeeze in some time to knit a few hats for k3tog’s Preemie Hat drive.

My goal was to knit as many hats as I could get out of a 68-gram leftover ball of Bernat Softee Baby.  So how many hats was I able to get from that 68 grams?

Yes, it’s a zoo

In more ways than one… I’ve neglected much of my holiday preparation except knitting. Today, I will have to start focusing on gift wrapping, addressing cards (late!) and helping Mom decorate the tree.

Chris mentioned that I was knitting a zoo. How very true. Another way to look at it is as a Noah’s Ark, [...]
