It's finally done! Double knitting is a bit exhausting but it was fun to see the pattern get more and more complete every day. I'm still not sure what I'll end up using it for. I was thinking about turning it into a pillow cover but it would be a little sad to lose the... Continue Reading →
I was hoping I might finish this tonight but I'm too tired. I also realized I have no idea how to bind off double knitting or if it is different from normal bind-offs. That means I'm definitely not quite ready to finish this piece.
Made some more progress on this today. Now there's less than 10 rows left to knit. I should still be able to finish it before I move if I make time to do a row or two each night!
Got a few more rows done tonight. I realized I never mentioned what this pattern actually is. It's the symbol of the Horde, one of the factions from World of Warcraft. With my computer on the fritz and not much free time, this is about as close as I've come to playing video games in... Continue Reading →
I keep having the urge to start something new but I'm choosing to continue with this project as much as I can. I just think about how great it will feel to finish this. Plus it is fun knowing that the next new project I cast on will probably be in my new apartment!
Got a little bit more done on this tonight. I think it's about 2/3 of the way finished now. Double knitting with this worsted weight acrylic yarn is a bit rough on my hands so I keep trying to swap it out with other projects. That makes it slow going but I'm just happy to... Continue Reading →
Work was delayed this morning due to snow, so I had a little time to make progress on my double knitting instead. Now that I'm done with my coffee cozy I'm going to try to finish this up too. It will be nice to have fewer works-in-progress to take with me when I move.
One row of double knitting tonight. I don't like it when I'm so busy and exhausted that I barely have time for my creative things, but at least I can always find enough time to make some small progress.
Made a few rows' worth of progress on this tonight. Working with this acrylic yarn and the tightness of the double knit hurts my fingers a bit, but I'm soldiering on. Almost halfway through now!
I am now 20 rows into this ~60 row project. I feel so much faster, but not fast enough. Every row feels twice as long as it should, which makes sense since every row has double the number of stitches to make it double knit. I want to keep making progress on this, but I'm... Continue Reading →
I picked this back up today after being shamed by my goal review for October. At least this way I know I have already met my goal of making some progress on this project this month 😛 I made the command decision to transfer this onto my interchangables instead of the cheap bamboo straights I...

I worked on my double knitting some tonight and got a few rows done. I can finally start to get a better sense of the pattern coming through now. I spent part of the night packing instead of knitting tonight, though. I'll be traveling for work all week next week and I still feel very... Continue Reading →
