I'm back! I can't believe it's been about two weeks since I have written here. Life has been intensely busy but things have finally been settling down. During my down time I mostly took a break from crafty things. Instead I took some photos, and I also built a computer, which feels at least as... Continue Reading →
I finally finished it! It's beautiful and very warm and I love it. The best part is that it's still cold enough here to use it a few times before winter is over. This is also a good point for me to take a brief hiatus from the blog. I've got some major life event... Continue Reading →
I was traveling yesterday so no post, but I did do a row on my scarf. Same thing today, I was in the car a lot but I did at least get a couple more rows done tonight when I got back.
February was my first month of a new place and new job. It was hectic but I still managed to keep up with daily creative things. It feels bad that I have all the same WIPs that I had in January, but at least I also have two completed items to go with them! Completed... Continue Reading →
A long day after too little sleep is just not conducive to getting lots of knitting done. I made some progress, but not quite enough to finish up this scarf in time to meet my goal for the month. Onward into March!
I'm so close to being done with this scarf. Just a few inches left to go. For the curious, I stopped worrying about the absolute length, and instead have been measuring it against another scarf that I really like. I think that old scarf is a bit more than 60 inches, but the most important... Continue Reading →
I had various work obligations until late this evening so I made very little progress tonight. Still, I always count it as a win when I can at least get a row or two done.
More scarf progress tonight! I have some late nights coming up this week so I'm trying to get as much work done on it while I can.
My poor spouse had to spend a few minutes digging through my stash to find the right yarn. It turns out I had at least 3 different kinds of "green and purple" yarn in there. Whoops. Luckily he finally found the right one and brought it when he came to visit me. Now I have... Continue Reading →
Ok it's more of a coaster size than a full dishcloth, but it is functional. I just kept going until I ran out of yarn. It is actually a really good size for resting my phone on so it doesn't clatter on my desk.
I decided to start on this while I'm waiting for the yarn I need to finish my scarf. I'm using up leftover bits of stash yarn. I'll keep growing it until I'm happy with the size or I run out of scraps.
That tiny bit of yarn at the top is all that is left of the skein. The scarf measures a respectable 50 inches now, which is about a foot short of where I want it to be. I like to be able to wrap my scarves around my neck at least once, and 50" is... Continue Reading →
