Fluff Nugget Progress (12)

I've knit a few more rounds of this sleeve, but I think I'm still feeling the frustration of sleeve island. At least it is longer than it looks. I tried it on and it already reaches past my elbow. The pattern calls for knitting this fairly long, to create more of a balloon sleeve. I... Continue Reading →

Musselburgh Hat progress (3)

You can see my progress from the stitch marker where I was in my previous update. It's less than ten rounds, mostly because I was working on my shortie socks nonstop until Monday. I also ended up switching back to doing magic loop on 40" circulars because I noticed that my hands were really uncomfortable... Continue Reading →

Strawberry Shorties!

Here's a sneaky project that came out of nowhere, even for me. I finally couldn't resist the urge to make a pair of socks to try out a shadow wrap heel. Then I combined that with some curiosity about whether I could get a complete pair of shorties out of two 20 g mini skeins.... Continue Reading →

Musselburgh Hat progress (2)

I've made a few inches of progress on this hat since the last time I showed it. It's nothing too much to write home about but at least it is still growing. I'm still completely in love with the colors in this yarn, and really enjoy seeing what is coming next as I knit each... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget Progress (11)

Welcome to Sleeve Island. I had heard of this phenomenon from other sweater knitters, but I did not experience it on any of the other sweaters I've made. Maybe it's the brioche that's the problem, but I am definitely getting sleeve fatigue already and I'm not even halfway through the first one. On my previous... Continue Reading →

Spouse Socks progress (2)

I feel like I've been spending all of my time knitting my cardigan, but I did still manage to make some progress on these socks. I'm enjoying them much more now that I'm past all the twisted rib of the cuff. This is such a nice and mostly mindless project for watching TV. It's a... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget progress (10)

I managed to get a few rows of the sleeve done. The brioche in the round is still going pretty slowly but at least I've had a few rounds of practice to help with that. I think it will continue to be a little slower than the flat sections just because there is some purling... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget progress (9)

I spent a lot of time working on my Fluff Nugget cardigan this weekend. I finished all the panels for the body and got everything seamed up. I've also picked up the stitches for the first sleeve. The next step is learning how to do brioche in the round, since it is different from doing... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget progress (8)

I've finished with the main body of the cardigan and now have split for the sleeves. The right front section went really quickly, right up until I got near the top. Then I had to learn how to do german short rows in brioche. It wasn't super difficult, but it did take a couple attempts... Continue Reading →

Spouse Socks progress

The socks I'm working on for my spouse have grown a little bit. I finished the cuff and have moved on to the leg. I'm just doing a simple 6x2 rib to keep it slightly interesting and make the fit a bit more forgiving. He tried one on and gave me some feedback on how... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget progress (7)

Over the weekend I got a lot done on this project while watching some knitting podcasts. Now I'm finally at the point of splitting for the sleeves. It felt like it was taking forever, but that was partially my own fault. The pattern is for a cropped style so I had to add a few... Continue Reading →

Spouse Socks started

I couldn't stay away from socks for very long. This pair will be for my spouse. I'm trying to see if 64 stitches on 2.5 mm needles will be a good size for him. I'm also experimenting with a wool-free yarn. It seems to be working up just fine so far. Once I get into... Continue Reading →
