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 […]

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 […]

Something awesome happened…

..earlier this week. I walked my kids to the front door of the school building and hung around for minute until they were inside, far enough down the hall that I knew they’d keep going and actually make it to their own classes. (They’ve been known to daydream and wander, […]

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. […]

A stitchy weekend

Friday was expected to be a howler here, and the storm was also expected to continue roaring all weekend. As it turned out, we got some snow and wind, but nowhere near the amount or intensity that had been forecast. But that reality did nothing to deter me from my […]
