Scrappy Seattle Shorties finished!

I managed to get these off the needles just in time for a November finish! Part of me wishes I had taken the time to alternate the blue yarn with the variegated for the foot, but I am still happy with this result. I am definitely glad to use that Knit Picks yarn for the... Continue Reading →

Scrappy Seattle Shorties progress (8)

I'm back and I finished my move! Or, well, at least the movers came and moved all our furniture. There's still some odds and ends left at the old house, and a lot of cleaning left to do. But I am at least partially set up in my new office/craft room and can hopefully get... Continue Reading →

The two skeins I am using are almost gone and I am trying to decide whether to use separate skeins or pull from both ends of one skein for the rest... Continue Reading →

Single Malt progress (12)

The sleeves are coming along nicely. I'm over halfway through the decrease section, after which it will be smooth sailing until the cuffs. I'm a little sad about setting aside my MKAL knit, but I am really grateful for the extra time to spend on this sweater. This project has been such a pleasure to... Continue Reading →
