Hat progress (6)

Gratuitous cat photo is the order of the day. He was stretched out on my legs the whole time I was working on this tonight. He didn't even notice my knitting until I tried to get a photo of him with it, then he tried to lick it. I guess it is a good thing... Continue Reading →

The WIP pile

Tonight I couldn't make up my mind what to work on, so I did a little bit on a couple different projects. This is my current pile of works-in-progress (minus a couple more things I've set aside for a bit in the closet). I definitely like to have at least one crochet and one knit... Continue Reading →

Shawlette progress (3)

More shawlette progress today. It's a shame it doesn't keep that lacy openness like the photo from yesterday. It will definitely need a thorough blocking to get the full effect when it is done. Hopefully that will help with the size a bit too. I only have a few more rows to go and it... Continue Reading →

Shawlette progress (2)

We drove to the town about an hour away today to see a movie, and I took this project along in the car. I figured it would be good practice for our long drive to visit family on Thanksgiving. I managed to get a little bit done on the way there, but it was dark... Continue Reading →

Hat progress (5)

I always think I'm going to get way more crafting done on the weekends than I actually do. Still, I got a few more rows of this hat done this afternoon.

More hat progress

I worked a couple more rows on this tonight while waiting for our traditional Friday night pizza to arrive. I still feel so happy and proud of this piece so far. A year ago I couldn't knit at all, I've come so far!

Fortune’s Shawlette progress

I've been working on this shawl a little bit in between all my knitting, and it has grown quite a bit. I'm still completely in love with this yarn, and it's been so soothing to work on this project.

Hat setbacks and progress

I was so positive yesterday about this hat, and today I had a mini disaster. I was pulling the red yarn so I could carry it up the back, and I ended up pulling it right apart. I think I managed to salvage it and hopefully got it secured. I also got flustered and I... Continue Reading →

Hat progress

It doesn't look like much yet, but it feels like it is going surprisingly fast for me. It will be a couple more rows before I get the full sense of the color repeats, but I really like it so far. I even tried it on and it actually fits around my head, so I... Continue Reading →

Hat cast on

My parents just got back from a trip to Ireland, and they brought me back about 150g of this Irish wool. I decided to try to make a hat out of it. I'm already doing much better than my last attempt at knitting in the round. The pattern looks nice and is fairly simple, but... Continue Reading →

Double knit progress (8)

I am now 20 rows into this ~60 row project. I feel so much faster, but not fast enough. Every row feels twice as long as it should, which makes sense since every row has double the number of stitches to make it double knit. I want to keep making progress on this, but I'm... Continue Reading →
