Fluff Nugget Fix finished!

I'm skipping my blanket update for this week so I can share this finished project instead! It has not been re-blocked yet but otherwise it is all done. The sleeves ended up needing more length than I originally thought, but I am very happy with how they turned out. This cardigan is so squishy and... Continue Reading →

I'm over halfway through with the additional brioche rows, and I have become determined to finish this in time to meet my goal for the month. The thing that keeps getting in the way is the fact that because this is brioche, every finished row requires working the fabric twice. It makes everything feel like... Continue Reading →

I finished the first sleeve! Once it was bound off I tried it on, and I'm so much happier with the length now. I can't wait to get the other sleeve done and see how much better everything fits. I think I will end up wearing this so much more when I am happier with... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget Fix progress

This was my main knitting project over the weekend, and I think I am finally happy with the length. I measured before I cut the cuff off and estimated I would need about four extra inches. As I knit I kept trying it on and ended up going for almost six inches in total. Now... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget Fix started

One of my big goals for this year is to fix this cardigan. I love it a lot and wore it a few times over the winter, but the sleeves were just way too short. The pattern had some comments about how some of the test knitters' sleeves grew a lot during blocking, so I... Continue Reading →

Witchling Sweater finished!

Another sweater project finished! This project slowed down for a bit in the middle but once I got to the sleeves it absolutely flew off my needles. This pattern was the perfect combination of plain simple sections with some interesting bits to keep me motivated. I loved knitting the colorwork because even though it slowed... Continue Reading →

Here's my latest progress on this colorwork. I'm just about done with the moon motif now. I really do find colorwork a strange combination of fun and tiring. It is slow going at some times, but it does an amazing job of keeping me interested. That's especially true for a pattern like this one, where... Continue Reading →

More colorwork! I'm about halfway through the chart now, and have mostly hit my stride as far as colorwork technique. I tend to hold both yarns in my left hand (I knit continental), which works really well for sections with short floats. Someday I would love to learn to knit continental for one color and...

Witchling Sweater progress (9)

I got a few more rounds of colorwork done. You can see that my tension started out a bit uneven but now that I've had some practice it is looking much better. Right now I'm just about a quarter of the way through the chart. It's still a bit slow but luckily there are a... Continue Reading →

Color at last! On the plus side, the knitting has become much more interesting and engaging. Unfortunately the flip side is that this section is taking much longer than the plain stockinette. It is definitely going to be worth it though. This color (Neighborhood Fiber Co. in the Observatory Circle colorway) is amazing, and plays... Continue Reading →
