Second Colorwave Dishcloth finished!

I just couldn't stop knitting on this dishcloth, so it got finished in a hurry! I have definitely been enjoying the brioche stitch now that I'm more familiar with it. That bodes well for the cardigan I'm about to cast on. You can see that this second dishcloth (on the left) is slightly smaller than... Continue Reading →

Acorns Socks progress (2)

Here's my latest progress on my socks. It's not a ton but it was enough to start transitioning into the next color of this gradient yarn. Oranges and yellows are not usually my thing but I think this gradient is going to be absolutely perfect for this pattern. I was hoping to be a bit... Continue Reading →

Wingspan progress (3)

I worked on my wings some over the weekend. Although it doesn't look like much, it was a substantial investment of time. The transition section between the sets of feathers involves a lot of cabling and the pattern is not necessarily the same for each feather. That meant a lot of double checking the pattern...

Acorns Socks progress

I've made some reasonable progress on my socks. I started out using my new Hiya Hiya needles but the cable on them was too long to feel good so I swapped back to my 40" Chiaogoos. I think I will probably swap to the long cable when I am doing heel flaps and gussets, because... Continue Reading →

Acorns Socks started!

I finished one pair of socks, which of course means I needed to cast on a new pair right away. This pattern choice is brought to you by the Nature's Cozy podcast. She showed off her beautiful Acorns socks in a recent show and it inspired me to make some too. The pattern seemed like... Continue Reading →

Lucky Socks finished!

Here's my third finished pair of socks for the year! I've loved the self-striping yarn and I absolutely love this colorway. These went much faster than my previous pair, probably because they were competing with sweater knitting for less time than my previous pair. I decided not to do contrasting toes. The striped toes look... Continue Reading →

Hex Blanket progress (6)

I have some decent blanket progress to report. I actually finished joining another round of hexes. You can see that I still have a ton of ends to weave in because I've been willfully ignoring them as I go. You can also see that the blanket is taking up most of the floor space in...

Lucky Socks progress (9)

I've made it through the foot of my lucky socks. Now I need to decide if I am going to do a contrasting toe or continue with the self-striping yarn. I really love these colors so I'm inclined to just keep going. I certainly have plenty of yarn left. I love it so much that... Continue Reading →

Colorwave Dishcloth finished!

I'm very pleased with the way this came out. I think I may have messed up the finishing and bind-off rows a little bit but otherwise it looks really nice. More importantly, it gave me some good practice with brioche. This dishcloth used up just about half of a ball of Dishie, and I think... Continue Reading →

Colorwave Dishcloth progress

I'm definitely hitting my stride with this pattern now. It was late in the evening before I finally started to get the hang of those all-important yarnover + slip stitch combinations you need for brioche. Now I can do that with one fluid motion instead of fussing with the individual steps. This does feel like... Continue Reading →

Colorwave Dishcloth started

I have my next sweater project all picked out, and it has been taking most of my willpower to keep from casting it on right away. However, the pattern I chose uses brioche, which I have never done. So I'm going to make a few small projects like this dishcloth to practice some of the... Continue Reading →
