Napatree Tee progress (18)

I finished the back of my tee over the weekend! It went pretty quickly once I split for the shoulders. The two sides look a little uneven but I think that is partially because of the way I have them on different holders. I am trusting that once I pick up the stitches everything will...

Napatree Tee progress (17)

I tried to capture more of the garment in the photo this time to give a better sense of the color changes. I've finished with the green sections and have moved into the orange/yellow gradient. I've also almost made it to the short rows at the back of the neck. The color changes are still... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket progress (20)

It's granny blanket day! I finished one border row since last week. The project is at a good point now. Either I can call it finished now, or I can add one more border row I have been planning. I think this weekend I will try out the stitch I have in mind. If I... Continue Reading →

Very Green Socks progress (3)

My progress on these socks has been quite slow, but I am not stressing out about it. I am enjoying them when I pick them up, but my focus has mainly been on my Napatree Tee this week. One good thing is that I've established the pattern enough to be comfortable with it now. The... Continue Reading →

Napatree Tee progress (16)

Here's today's progress on my tee. I'm a few rows into the last color section with green now. Based on my calculations I should be part way through the orange section when I finish up the shoulder and neck. That should leave a bit of the red leftover to do the sleeves. I'm a little...

Napatree Tee progress (15)

I spent more of my free time over the weekend playing games than knitting, but I still finished off one color gradient section. The knitting is going smoothly, but it gets interrupted every few inches when I have to cut the yarn and splice in the next color. I've collected a couple little balls of... Continue Reading →

Napatree Tee progress (14)

I am officially past the split for the arm holes now. I'm still a bit nervous about how to handle the color fade now that the front and back are separate, but I will deal with each new section as it comes. For now I have done a rough estimate of the amount of the... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket progress (19)

It is Thursday, the unofficial day to check in on my granny blanket! There's big news this week: I managed to finish the body of the blanket and start in on the border. Once the white granny-stitch row is done I think I want to add another row or two in another stitch, but otherwise... Continue Reading →

Five Years of Daily Creative Thing

According to my calculations, yesterday marked my five year blog-aversary! It is really hard to believe I've been at this for five years. On the other hand, it is also hard to believe that I've only been knitting for four years. My crafty hobbies have become a really big part of my daily life, and... Continue Reading →

Napatree Tee progress (13)

Here's my latest progress on this project. I managed to finish off the section with blue yarn and start into some yellow. There should only be a couple more rows left to go before I split for the sleeves. I admit that it has been slowing me down, because I am still nervous about how... Continue Reading →

Very Green Socks progress (2)

This weekend I fell down a new-to-me video game rabbit hole, which meant I didn't get much knitting done at all. I did at least get a few rows done on these socks. I wanted to do something to help break up the self striping a little bit, so I will be adding a slipped... Continue Reading →

Very Green Socks progress

I finished the cuffs for my newest sock project. I haven't spent too much time on this project yet, but it is nice to have a pair of socks on the needles again. Mostly I am looking forward to getting started with the self striping yarn I chose for the main color. There is nothing... Continue Reading →
