A second finished shawl!

Here it is, the second of the two shawls I started a few weeks ago, all bordered and bound off and even washed and blocked. It’s low light and threatening to rain here, which is why the colors don’t look quite right. Just trust me on this–in person, this pale […]

A little catch-up

I spent a fair portion of the last two weeks scrambling madly with details of jobs that would be due just before I took two days off for a long weekend. (Isn’t something wrong with that equation? Two weeks of extra work to take two days off?) The long and […]

A short-lived promise

I was so thrilled with my finished shawl this past weekend that I swore I would not start anything new until I’d seen another couple of incomplete projects through. It felt so wonderful to have something accomplished, and I love both the result and the prospect of wearing it. I […]

My thumb’s officially up

After about a year of preparation, I’m ready to hit the road, thumb outstretched. Yep. My Hitchhiker shawl is done! My taking so long to complete it was purely a function of slow knitting and lots of distraction between stitches. The project itself was a ton of fun to make. […]

Weekend projects

In the midst of my excitement about the veryverysoontobe finishing of my shawl, I’ve also been slowly easing myself deeper into a sewing project this past week. I mentioned this doll dress project once last month but had not had much opportunity (the space requirements of any sewing project being […]

The home stretch

I know I’m a very slow knitter, but even I could not have predicted that it would take more than a year to complete the Hitchhiker shawl. Okay, confession. I shouldn’t say that quite yet. In fact, I still have one and a half pattern repeats to go before I […]

One ball down

Since finishing my double-basket dishcloth (oops! no finished photo to share), which I loved, I once again picked up my half-done Hitchhiker shawl and start making a little progress again.The more I work with this yarn, the more I like it. This shawl took a setback a few weeks ago, […]

One out, one in

I guess I got a little reckless while washing my favorite paring knife. I didn’t realize I’d sliced the edge of this dishcloth until it had already unraveled back pretty severely in both directions. I’d gotten more than a year out of it, so I can’t be too sorry. A […]

Slowed progress, and a new start

I’ve come to an unexpected stop (again) on my cardigan. I lined up the sleeves and discovered that they are different in width. See? The thing is, I can’t figure out why they aren’t equal. Although I threatened to, I never did switch to a different size hook. I’ve counted […]
