Hex Blanket finished!!!

I did it! I managed to get this blanket finished before the end of the year! This is pretty much all I have been working on over my winter break, but it has been worth it. I am quite pleased with how this turned out. It used up a ton of my acrylic yarn and... Continue Reading →

Xmas Shorties finished!

I finished these short socks up in no time! Sure, they're still a little bit damp from blocking, but they should dry in time to wear them on Sunday for our holiday tradition of super xmas. I am really pleased with how these came out. When I split the yarn for my first pair there... Continue Reading →

Xmas Shorties started

I decided I wanted a pair of xmas shorty socks to wear around the house over the holidays. I cast these on a few days ago and am already almost done. There's just a few more stripes to go on the foot before I start the toes. I love how quickly shorties knit up. These... Continue Reading →

Transverse progress (5)

I definitely lied in my last post, as I am still much more than 10 rows away from splitting for the sleeves. I am one round away from the main yoke portion of the pattern, but there's a transition section that I hadn't read through properly last time that will add quite a few more... Continue Reading →

Hex Blanket progress (12)

The Hex Blanket is still inching along. I got quite a few more hexes joined and have pinned the next batch into place. There's only 16 more hexes left to join now in total. At this point I think I will count this blanket as "finished" for the year if I can get everything joined... Continue Reading →

Xmas Socks finished

I got these done over the weekend. I really love the way that they turned out! The white sparkle yarn on the heels/toes/cuffs works perfectly, and I love the solid and speckled stripes. These are going to be perfect to wear for xmas. Thank goodness I got them done in plenty of time. I can't... Continue Reading →

Xmas Socks progress (5)

The socks are coming along nicely. Work has been a lot less chaotic this week than last week, which has meant more normal knitting time in the evenings for me. I think I'm a bit over halfway through the foot already. That gives me a good chance at finishing this weekend. I can't wait to... Continue Reading →

Transverse progress (4)

I'm now up to color number 5 in this advent minis sweater. On the one hand, it is going faster than I expected it to. On the other hand, it is still a fingering weight sweater and is going to take forever to finish. Luckily all the color changes keep it interesting. Right now I'm... Continue Reading →

Xmas Socks progress (4)

I've been working on my sweater more than these socks so far this week, but I still have some progress. This photo really shows off what a mess my needles become when I am in the middle of working on the heels of my socks. Sometimes I will split them onto two separate needles, but...

Transverse progress (3)

Although it is a little hard to tell, I have made it to the 4th mini skein in my sweater. The third and fourth colors are very similar, except the third has orange speckles and the fourth has green speckles. At first I wasn't sure how I felt about the fact that not all of... Continue Reading →

Xmas Socks progress (3)

I split my knitting time over the weekend between my sweater and these socks. I finished the legs and one of the heels, and I'm pretty happy with that. This yarn continues to delight me every time I look at it. I swear the only reason I bother doing contrast heels/toes/cuffs is because then I... Continue Reading →

Transverse progress (2)

I finished a few more rows of my sweater and have moved into the third mini-skein from my advent. I'm trying to convert my mindset over to the fact that this project will be a marathon and not a sprint. As it stands I am not even halfway through the raglan increases before I split...
