I've been back at this blog and back to my knitting for a whole week, hooray! It feels like this hat is progressing very slowly but I am learning new things and re-learning everything I forgot during my break.
Cables! These are slightly more complicated than the ones on my scarf, but not too bad. I am learning how to cross in front and behind since this pattern has both.
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.
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 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 →
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 →
I like showing off the back of the cables. It's not quite as pretty to look at but I think it is cool to see how cables are constructed. Today was a snow day. I still had work to do at home, but in between that I had some time to curl up with a... Continue Reading →
