The good news is that I moved out of my apartment and into a new house near my new job. The bad news is that since the move I have been without any internet at home! I've gotten loads of knitting done but haven't been able to update about it here all week. In the... Continue Reading →
This is it. RIP my rate of progress. Most of the rest of this shawl has cables everywhere. I really love the way they look but they slow me down so much. At least this will give me lots of practice with them.
I cheated by posting a mostly cat photo yesterday, so today you get an actual progress photo of all the work I did since last week. Mostly because I am back in my tiny apartment with no cats so I can't give you a cat photo again today. BUT! This is my last night in... Continue Reading →
I'm back! I'm still not really moved into my new place yet but I wanted to post my progress anyway. I managed to get a few more sections of this shawl done over the past few days while I was at home. To be honest I was using it as a bit of procrastination/stress relief... Continue Reading →
It's February already! This month marks some huge changes for me. I want my creative things to keep me rooted and help me deal with some of the stress of all this change. Completed in January: Diagon Alley Socks A Dishcloth (and some matching coasters) A different Dishcloth An Earwarmer Current WIPs: Giant Red Blanket... Continue Reading →
Color 2 has arrived! At some point I need to get a picture of this with natural light, because the color is so vibrant and this photo does not do it justice.

I'm officially finished with the lace bits in this color! If I have enough knitting time tomorrow I should be able to start adding in the beautiful blue. I really can't wait to see how they both knit up together.
Tonight is a good night for quiet knitting and contemplation. It's my last week at my current job and I can barely believe it's already over. I'm excited about my next chapter but I'm also sad that this one is finished. I am also very happy that even though my work and my living situation... Continue Reading →
As usual, it feels good to finish a project so quickly. I hope my mom likes it. It's definitely very green. Now I'm eager to get back to my Harmonize shawl. Working with that lovely merino/silk will feel like heaven after this acrylic.
My mom put in a request for an ear warmer that she could wear to the St. Patrick's Day parade. I had this green yarn leftover from Baby Yoda that seemed like a good fit for the job. I really wanted to work on my shawl this weekend but I should have known it wasn't... Continue Reading →
I'm trying to really savor what little knitting time I get for the next few days. It is almost moving day and the end of one job and beginning of a new one. Things are going to be very chaotic for a while, but in a good way. I am really grateful that I have... Continue Reading →
