In the interest of full transparency, here is my weekly update on my socks. As you can see, there's not a lot of new progress here. Sometimes a project just doesn't get as much love, and that's ok. My office day didn't leave me with a lot of knitting time, as usual, and I prefer... Continue Reading →
Green Static Socks progress (4)
Here's another weekly update on these socks. As usual I just got a few rounds done while I was in the office one day. This week was particularly hectic so there wasn't much time to knit. I love my new house and the very short commute that I have now, but looking at these socks... Continue Reading →
Green Static Socks progress (3)
I managed to get a few rows done while I was in the office this week. Once I am finished with my cardigan I might put some time in on these, at least enough to get past the heels. I really like the way this yarn knits up. There is always something changing which keeps... Continue Reading →
Green Static Socks progress (2)
Here's my sock progress for the week. I did work on them a tiny bit outside of the office, mostly because my in-office day was too busy to get much knitting done. They will still take a while but I want to get in more than just a couple of rows per week.
Green Static Socks progress
I finished the cuffs and got a few rounds of the leg done. I decided to go with a 3x1 rib for the leg. That keeps the knitting relatively simple while still adding a little bit of interest. The ribbing also makes for a nice fit in the finished socks. I am trying to make... Continue Reading →
Green Static Socks started
These are a few days old, but I am just getting around to sharing them. I had to go back into the office this week for the first time since before the holidays. Going into the office means I need some simple, portable office knitting, so I started a pair of socks. My intention for... Continue Reading →
Scrappy Xmas Shorties finished!
All of the ends have finally been tamed! I really love how these turned out. The fun stripes make all the effort worth it. I already have a pair of xmas shorties that use some of the same yarn, but these make me extra happy because they finished off some scraps that I couldn't bear... Continue Reading →
Scrappy Xmas Shorties progress (3)
These went incredibly quickly! I have finished all of the knitting. I decided not to do the whole toe in red, and instead just did a stripe. I think it still looks good without overwhelming anything. Now I just need to graft the toes and then weave in the very large number of ends. Hopefully... Continue Reading →
Scrappy Xmas Shorties progress (2)
Here's my latest progress on my scrappy holiday shorties. These have been my go-to knitting for a couple days. Now I am already most of the way through the foot. In fact I am almost out of the mini skein remnants that I set aside for this project. I was originally planning to use more... Continue Reading →
Scrappy Xmas Shorties progress
I have been spending a good amount of time working on these scrappy shorties and am making lots of progress. I've already used up a couple different scraps, which is always nice. Although, I will probably be kicking myself for using so many small bits when it comes time to weave in all of these... Continue Reading →
Scrappy Xmas Shorties started!
Well it is December and I've already started a little festive project for myself. These are going to be extra scrappy shorties. I'm using up some self-striping yarn, plus bits and pieces of a mini skein set, and other various leftovers. They won't match exactly but they will definitely channel the holiday spirit. You can...

Scrappy Seattle Shorties finished!
I managed to get these off the needles just in time for a November finish! Part of me wishes I had taken the time to alternate the blue yarn with the variegated for the foot, but I am still happy with this result. I am definitely glad to use that Knit Picks yarn for the... Continue Reading →
