Yesterday was a weird day and I ended up missing a post here, but that doesn't mean I missed my daily knitting! I finished my socks while I was on a conference call. The pattern is Super Easy Socks. I am very pleased that I managed to get the stripes almost perfectly matched. Since yesterday... Continue Reading →
Bus Socks progress
Worsted weight socks work up extremely fast. Who could have guessed? I'm questioning my decision to do two at a time, mostly because de-twisting the two balls of yarn on the bus is a bit of an adventure. Of course due to recent events maybe that won't matter. We've started having more extensive telework because... Continue Reading →
Bus Socks started
I cast these on over the weekend because I wanted them to be ready to go once my hat was done. I'm not quite brave enough to try fingering weight socks on the bus yet, so these are some simple worsted ones. I figure I can wear them around the house to keep my feet... Continue Reading →
Bus Hat #2 finished!
Well that didn't take long! I got far enough along that I wanted to finish the last few decrease rows at home. I'm still a little annoyed at myself for messing up the ribbing, but I'm still pretty happy with the finished product. This one will go to the spouse so we can be adorable... Continue Reading →
Bus Hat #2 progress
Here's some proof that I actually started a second hat. It's also proof that I messed something up for a few rows of the 1x1 ribbing. I'm not sure what happened, but it looks like I may have been knitting inside out for a bit. That's what I get for knitting on a bus before... Continue Reading →
Bus Hat #2
I couldn't stand the thought of not having bus knitting so I started another hat right away. I will need to find someone I like a lot to give this extra hat to. I love this yarn so much but I don't actually need two identical hats...
Bus Hat finished!
Wow that felt intensely fast! Just a few weeks of knitting every day on the bus and I'm already done. The pattern is Bankhead, and it was exactly perfect for bus knitting: not quite as boring as plain stockinette, but simple enough that I could knit mindlessly when I wasn't quite awake yet in the...

Bus Hat progress (2)
I didn't get any knitting done over the weekend at all. I spent most of my time cleaning and unpacking. My creative contributions were making a pizza from scratch, and putting together Ikea furniture. Since I don't have any new shawl progress to show, you get to see the progress on my bus hat instead.... Continue Reading →
Bus Hat progress
I'm alive! And so is my internet! I figured I'd update you on my bus knitting first since that's what I've had a chance to work on every day. I've been experimenting with the schedule a bit to figure out what works for me. I discovered that the commute can range from 15 minutes to... Continue Reading →
