Regular Project

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 […]

Two snail’s pace knits

It’s not that I haven’t been crafting these past weeks. It’s that I haven’t managed to get into my blogs with any sort of consistency. But after weeks of slowly easing into the newness of it all, I finally have up and running both my new computer (believe it or […]
