Regular Project

End of the frenzy (for now)

For whatever reason, the odd compulsion to MAKE HATS was still with me this past week. After the first wave of August (?!) hats, and especially that brightly striped one, I had another color combination idea. This hat was the result. ‘Course, I always was a sucker for navy blue, […]

Finished dress

A couple weeks back, I swore that I wouldn’t start anything new until I’d made significant headway on something already in progress. It was unusually hard to hold to that promise since I have a couple of crocheted baby gifts planned for a shower coming up that I really felt […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Stitching along…

After finishing off my cabled hat last week, I decided I should resist the urge to begin another something new and put some work into an old UFO instead. This cardigan has been “in progress” for more than 3 years. It was far overdue for some love. By the end […]

Three finishes

First and foremost: My wool hat is done! It was a ridiculously long finish for such a small project. It took me a few false starts before I really got rolling steadily, then last week, when I got to the top shaping, I discovered another trouble. The circular needle the […]
