Funfetti progress (8)

It is time for a brief pause on this project, because I've just finished off my next-to-last ball of yarn. I could keep going by working off of both ends of the remaining ball, but that seems like a recipe for a tangled headache. Instead I'll just wait for the extra yarn I ordered to...

Funfetti progress (7)

I got lots of work done on this over the weekend. I'm trying to decide how many more blocks of this pink I want to make before I swap to another. My hope was to finish off the whole mini, but if I do that it will take up almost half of the shawl. I... Continue Reading →

Funfetti progress (6)

For today's update I figured I would give you a peek at the wrong side of my shawl. The intarsia method is definitely simpler than stranded colorwork, but it sure does leave a lot of ends to weave in. I have been trying to do my best to weave them in as I go because... Continue Reading →

Funfetti progress (5)

Here's my latest shawl progress. It is still going well, and it is still the main project I reach for when I have some spare time for knitting. I always forget about the way shawls keep growing. So it feels like I should be well past the mid-way point by now, but in fact I... Continue Reading →

Funfetti progress (4)

I spent most of my weekend playing video games instead of knitting, but I did still get some good progress on this shawl. I've started on the last of my scraps from my cardigan. Once that is gone I'll have to break into the remaining mini skeins. One looming concern is the main color yarn.... Continue Reading →

Funfetti progress (3)

I got a reasonable chunk of work done on this project over the past couple days. I'm still maybe 50 rows away from the midpoint, but I'm getting there. The leftovers from my Countdown Cardi are almost used up now. I have one more partial mini left to go, and then I'll need to cake... Continue Reading →

Funfetti progress (2)

I can tell I'm getting close to the middle of the shawl because my progress looks less impressive. My motivation for this project is high, but the rows are getting longer and longer. One thing I haven't mentioned yet on this project is the slight modification I've made. The pattern calls for right leaning increases.... Continue Reading →

Pride KAL Socks finished!

I LOVE these socks! These are definitely high on the list of my favorite projects. The combination of the rainbows and the fun pattern are completely irresistible. I've also really enjoyed being part of this KAL. Seeing everyone's rainbow socks constantly brightens my day. It has been a little hard this year with so many... Continue Reading →

Pride KAL Socks progress (12)

I'm so excited to be nearly finished with these socks! I had a few false starts with them but they have turned out far better than I dared hope. There's just a few more rows of rib to do before I bind off. With a little luck I'll get that done later tonight or early... Continue Reading →

Pride KAL Socks progress (11)

Getting close now! I ended up doing a lot of knitting after I posted last night while talking to a friend on voice chat. It was a lovely way to spend an evening and I think I really needed it. Now I only have two more rows before I start the ribbing on this sock.... Continue Reading →

Pride KAL Socks progress (10)

Work has been very active lately, which means less conference call knitting time. I've still been making relatively steady progress, and am about halfway through the leg now. I've also been doing some more gardening experiments. Well, to be honest, I've been restarting my gardening experiment. Back before everything went on lockdown, I started a... Continue Reading →

Pride KAL Socks progress (9)

I accomplished exactly what I set out to do over the weekend. I got through the heel and onto the leg. This project is on track to be done this week. I've been itching to get back to my Hoar Frost socks to get them done too. My next pair of socks might be plain... Continue Reading →
