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, […]

Flotsam

I’ve been hard at work on the second of the mechanical doll dresses, the fraternal twin of the one I wrote about when I last haunted my blog. I can only do a little teeny piece of work before I have to pack it all up again and vacate the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Loose ends

I’ve missed my little craft blog world these past (yikes) six weeks. I’m glad to be here today! Last time I posted, I had a lot of loose ends lying around. I’m happy to share that a bunch of those danglers are now tied up! Those gloves I was knitting […]

So many things

Remember last week’s newly resuscitated interest in my long-languishing scrap granny square project? Here’s where I am now. I have 40 squares. They’re happy, pretty squares, too. And when I line them all up and figure in a little extra for joining and a border, it seems to be plenty. […]

Little baby squares

Here’s a long-term project I unearthed a couple nights ago: a scrap granny square baby blanket. When I started it, I’d figured it’d be a here-and-there kind of thing, but I really didn’t anticipate having let it be a UFO for several full years now. I added a couple new […]

It’s finished! (mostly)

I’d thought my weekend plans would include some stitching on several different projects, but as it turned out, I got on a roll with just one and…ta-da! Now obviously these are not final photos. I still have ends to weave in, and this beast still needs a good hard blocking […]
