Countdown Cardi progress (4)

I started on the body of the sweater, and man, this construction feels weird. The pattern has you cast on a long tab from the bottom of the sleeve so you can work around the front and back seamlessly. It is incredibly strange, but it will be nice not to have any sewing to do... Continue Reading →

Countdown Cardi progress (3)

I have had a difficult time putting this project down! Using up each of the minis goes so quickly and has me wanting to push a few extra rows so I can see how a new color works up. Now I am already just about finished with the sleeves. I tried them on and they... Continue Reading →

Countdown Cardi progress (2)

This pattern is quite addictive. I think it is something about using the beautiful minis from my advent. I feel like even if I don't have a lot of time for knitting, I usually have enough to add half a mini's worth to the project. I turned my work inside out so I could see... Continue Reading →

Countdown Cardi progress

I managed to knit my way back to where I was before I had to rip back. This has almost used up the first mini from my advent. The cuffs are using a different yarn (Knit Picks Swish DK) so I know I will have enough to do the cuffs and collar in the same... Continue Reading →

Highway Cowl started!

I started this project over the weekend while I was waiting for my Countdown Cardi swatch to dry. I just couldn't stand having empty needles. The pattern seems to be very nice and clear, and I am looking forward to learning 2-color brioche. Unfortunately I am not loving the yarn I chose. This is yarn... Continue Reading →

Countdown Cardi started!

I finished one sweater and that means it is time to immediately cast on the next one! This time I am making the Countdown Cardi (Ravelry link) so I can use up my advent yarn from 2022. The pattern has a fun sideways construction that means you start with the sleeves and work your way... Continue Reading →

Single Malt (for me) finished!

It's all done! I got very distracted but I finally managed to get it finished. This project was every bit as enjoyable as the first time I made it, but I probably should have knit something else in between these two sweaters just to keep things more interesting for myself. I love the color of... Continue Reading →

Single Malt (for me) progress (12)

I am so eager to get this project off the needles, and yet I have spent so much time lately distracted by crochet. Even with all the distraction, I am still making progress here. I'm very close to starting the ribbing, actually. It is the stage where everything is slower than it needs to be,... Continue Reading →

Snow Country Scarf finished!

It's finished! I am really happy with this finished scarf. There was just barely enough black yarn in my stash to add 2 rows of single crochet to the ends. Once I finished with those I decided not to do the crab stitch border. If there had been enough of the black left I think... Continue Reading →
