Harmonize Shawl progress (29)

I finished the last of the lace! If you look closely you can see that I have started another 2-color section instead of finishing according to the pattern. I decided I couldn't stand to leave that purple yarn unused when I (probably) have enough to do another section. I am winging it a bit because... Continue Reading →

Heel flap and gusset pick-up done! A lot of that work got done while on the phone with my parents. It helps to have something calming to do during those calls, especially when they start talking about how often they are going out to the store. They go out more than I do, not a...

I'm all done with the leg and ready to start the heel flap now. I hit a bit of a mental rough patch over the weekend but I think I'm doing better today. It is hard to feel bad when you're staring at these socks. They're so bright and cheerful and ridiculous! I hope you... Continue Reading →

I was so worried that I was going to stall out when I got to the second sock, but that is definitely not happening. The short rows make me pay attention, but I've practiced them enough that they're relatively quick now. At this rate I might finish them this week!

The shawl is moving forward much more easily now that all the cables are done. The current lace section is already almost half finished. I'm leaning toward adding an extra section to bring the lovely purple yarn back in one more time. On the one hand I'm eager to be finished, but on the other... Continue Reading →

Guess who powered through and finished the first sock? The toe flew off my needles. I didn't have much time to do more but I wanted to at least get the second stock started while I had so much momentum. I'm still shocked at how fast this got done. I'm being coy and not showing...

So much progress! I really got on a roll with this today so I just kept going until my momentum gave out. I'm all finished with the pattern and just need to knit a few more rows of stockinette before I get to the toe. It's practically done! #Blapril2020

By most measures these socks are the worst sort of clown barf. Rainbows everywhere. In fact the spouse just came in and said they look like a hippie's VW Bus had an accident and I could only laugh because he's not wrong. And yet I am completely obsessed with them! Have you ever fallen in... Continue Reading →

Harmonize Shawl progress (27)

I have been steadily working on my shawl and am officially finished with all of the cables! Hooray! That also means I'm finished with the purple yarn, which I am much sadder about. It feels like I still have a ton of it left, and in fact I weighed it and still have almost 30... Continue Reading →

The heel is all set and I've picked up the gusset stitches. Everything looks a little funny to me but I think it's because I'm used to the heel taking up about half of the total stitch count and this pattern doesn't do that. I am thinking about adjusting the wave pattern slightly on the... Continue Reading →

Diversion Socks progress (3)

I like to think that my socks are "weekday projects" and my shawl is my "weekend project", but the lines between those things have been blurred beyond recognition now. The important thing is that I'm making lots of progress! I decided to make these one pair of waves shorter than the pattern. I'm not sure... Continue Reading →
