Fluff Nugget progress (7)

Over the weekend I got a lot done on this project while watching some knitting podcasts. Now I'm finally at the point of splitting for the sleeves. It felt like it was taking forever, but that was partially my own fault. The pattern is for a cropped style so I had to add a few... Continue Reading →

Christmas Ball Advent Calendar Days 1-2

I've gotten a bit hooked on watching Arne & Carlos lately. They have a delightful blend of interesting information and good-natured silliness that is exactly what I need at this point in the year 2020. They are hosting a knit-along to make the 24 Christmas Ball patterns they released this year and I could not... 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 →

Pride KAL Socks progress (8)

Happy Friday! My second sock is moving right along. I expect that I should get the heel and some of the leg finished over the weekend. I'm not going to push myself to finish in a hurry since there's still over a week left in June. I've definitely been experiencing some work burnout lately and... Continue Reading →

Pride KAL Socks progress (7)

Still making moderate and steady progress on my Pride socks. I have really been enjoying watching everyone else's rainbow socks come along too. One of the things I love about this community is the encouragement and inspiration I get. At least in my little corner, there's a sense of openness and true community rather than...

Pride KAL Socks progress (6)

This second sock feels like it is slow going, but I think it is only because I haven't been knitting in front of the TV as much lately. I still expect to have plenty of time to finish before the end of the month so I'm not stressing about it. I just wish I had... Continue Reading →

Pride KAL Socks progress (5)

I cast on last night just to make sure I didn't succumb to second sock syndrome. It took a couple tries but didn't take too long to get it right. Today I finished the toe and got started on the foot. The pattern definitely feels much easier than the first time. I am much more... Continue Reading →

Pride KAL Socks halfway point

I had hoped to finish the first sock over the weekend but I didn't quite make it. I had to finish the cuff and bind-off today. That's still pretty good time, especially with a false start and having to rip back the heel. The second sock should go a lot faster now that I know... Continue Reading →
