Transverse progress

This is where most of my knitting time has been spent lately. I started on the second mini skein from my advent and I'm about halfway done with it already. The short rows are finished and I just have about 50 rows of raglan increases to knit before I split for the sleeves. That should... Continue Reading →

Pull Me Over progress (6)

I picked up the first sleeve and am about 20 rows in. Those first two rows of picking everything up and establishing the pattern are so nerve-wracking. It's already a fairly reasonable short sleeve length and I still have plenty of yardage left. The sleeve looks very small and funny because of the ribbing, but... Continue Reading →

Gingerbread House Stitch Marker

After seeing how cute the stitch markers from The Corner of Craft were in person, I decided to try my hand at making one myself. She has a nice tutorial video on her YouTube channel that explains how. I'm pretty proud with how this one turned out, even if it took me several hours of... Continue Reading →

October 2020 Goals

September was one of the hardest months of my entire life. Losing my Mom, on top of COVID and everything else going on in the world, was just too much for me to handle. Thank goodness I was able to keep myself steady by knitting and crocheting. I finished a lot of small projects since... Continue Reading →

Stormy Day Socks progress (8)

Lots of conference calls and tv watching today meant lots of sock progress. I'm just to the toe now, so these will be finished before I know it. My goal is to be able to cast on my sock club socks by the weekend. Toes are usually very speedy except for the grafting at the... Continue Reading →

Unplugged Day

Today our local internet company was doing some work in our neighborhood which meant I had no internet all day. That in turn meant I had to take the day off of work. I thought I might spend the day relaxing and knitting, but instead I spent it cleaning and rearranging my office space. This... Continue Reading →
