I really like how this one turned out. It doesn't have the weird color pooling in the middle that the last one had. I'm pretty happy to be able to add this to the xmas gift pile!
Almost finished with this one, just two more repeats left to do. It is funny how something that takes me one afternoon on the weekend can take all week to finish in the evenings after work. I'm still enjoying this pattern, but I'll be ready for something new once I finish.
I was hoping to get a little more done tonight but I'm thankful I at least had enough time to do a few more repeats. Sometimes I get frustrated when I feel like I'm not making as much progress as I would like, but it is nice to take a step back and be grateful... Continue Reading →
What can I say, this pattern is addictive. Each row of the repeat is slightly different, but it is still easy enough to memorize. I'm hoping this will finish off this ball of yarn to get it out of my stash, and I can add it to the small pile of these I'm giving as... Continue Reading →
I liked making the first one so much I started this one right away! The festive xmas colors are a bit much for me but it will make a fun gift.
After making a bunch of goals about finishing what I've started, of course today I cast on something entirely new. This is the "Almost Lost Washcloth". I got to learn two new techniques making this, yarn overs and short rows. It says something about how far I've come with my knitting that I made this... Continue Reading →
It's finished! It took a little longer than I had planned, but I'm very happy with it. I proved to myself I can do something slightly more complicated than stockinette stitch.
I actually made time to work on this a little bit more tonight! I got everything done except the binding off. I have to watch a video to remember how to do that, so I'll leave it for tomorrow.
Another one-row day. Can you even see the difference between yesterday's photo and today's? I'm glad I've been able to keep working on it without missing any days, but I am not quite motivated to do more than the bare minimum. Maybe I need to browse patterns to figure out what I want to make... Continue Reading →
Only one more row tonight because I'm too busy playing games again! I think there's only about 3 rows left to go but at this rate it will be the weekend before I'm done.
Only one sad row done tonight, and in record time at that. I'm too busy getting ready to play video games with my friends all night to spend much time on creative things. At least I found enough time to make a little progress!
I am in the home stretch now. I finished the last row of white today. Now it just needs a couple more rows of blue so both sides match, and then I can bind off. This pattern has been really fun. It pushed me a little bit but not so much that I felt lost... Continue Reading →
