Fluff Nugget Fix finished!

I'm skipping my blanket update for this week so I can share this finished project instead! It has not been re-blocked yet but otherwise it is all done. The sleeves ended up needing more length than I originally thought, but I am very happy with how they turned out. This cardigan is so squishy and... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget Fix progress (3)

I'm over halfway through with the additional brioche rows, and I have become determined to finish this in time to meet my goal for the month. The thing that keeps getting in the way is the fact that because this is brioche, every finished row requires working the fabric twice. It makes everything feel like... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget Fix progress (2)

I finished the first sleeve! Once it was bound off I tried it on, and I'm so much happier with the length now. I can't wait to get the other sleeve done and see how much better everything fits. I think I will end up wearing this so much more when I am happier with... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget Fix progress

This was my main knitting project over the weekend, and I think I am finally happy with the length. I measured before I cut the cuff off and estimated I would need about four extra inches. As I knit I kept trying it on and ended up going for almost six inches in total. Now... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget Fix started

One of my big goals for this year is to fix this cardigan. I love it a lot and wore it a few times over the winter, but the sleeves were just way too short. The pattern had some comments about how some of the test knitters' sleeves grew a lot during blocking, so I... Continue Reading →

Newborn Vertebrae finished!

The baby cardigan is done! I had plenty of time to finish it up and get it blocked over the weekend. It turned out so cute! I really love all the colors in this yarn, and it is fun having the different stripes and pooling in the different parts of the sweater. This knit up... Continue Reading →

Newborn Vertebrae progress (3)

My new needles arrived! I'm really glad they did because I don't think picking up all of those stitches with my wooden needles would have been very fun. Even with the new metal needles I had to employ my trusty crochet hook every once in a while to get everything picked up properly. Once that... Continue Reading →

Newborn Vertebrae progress (2)

I've made lots of progress on this baby sweater since the last time I showed it. I finished the back by the end of the week, and then spent the weekend knitting the sleeves. It looks mostly done now, but I still have to pick up all of the stitches along the front and collar... Continue Reading →

Newborn Vertebrae progress

One night of progress looks like a lot when you are knitting a baby sweater. I split for the sleeves and am zooming through the body now that there's way fewer stitches on the needles. It feels like I'll be done in no time, but I know I will slow down when I have to... Continue Reading →

Newborn Vertebrae started

This is the other project I was working on over the weekend. It's another baby knit for a friend who is expecting. Having two fingering weight garments on the needles at once would usually be a nightmare but this one is so tiny it doesn't feel so bad. Plus this yarn is so cute and... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget Cardigan finished!

It is finally done! The button band went very quickly, and I was all excited to be nearly done. Then I realized how much finishing was left to do. Luckily I had woven in most of my ends as I went along, but I stopped and checked to make sure I have everything woven in... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget progress (15)

As promised, I actually picked up the stitches for the button band right away. It doesn't look like much at the moment since I only managed 2 rows after that. On the one hand, this feels like a bit of a slog since I'm now working over even more stitches than the body of the... Continue Reading →
