September Plans

I normally would have a WIP Wednesday post here but since I've knit a whopping 6 rounds on my Bronwyn sweater since I've been focusing on finishing up the Foss sweater (which is done - more on that on Friday!), I thought I'd outline my plans for September here. As we edge closer to fall,… Continue reading September Plans

Year of Projects Update – Week 8

First up for this week, I'm delighted to say I finished spinning the mixed BFL/silk roving from Pigeon Roof Studios I had on my wheel. The original roving was a 75/25 blend in the colorway "Dovecote". I'm spinning this as part of a larger sweater-lot mash-up all in these gray-ish teal colors. The final skein… Continue reading Year of Projects Update – Week 8

Year of Projects 2021: Week 6

Still chugging along on several bigger YOP pieces but here's my weekly update on progress for them. Foss Sweater: I managed to get the front and back divided and worked the short-row shaping for the shoulders on the front. I did all of that in the evenings while my DH was enthralled with a TV… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021: Week 6

FO Friday: July 16, 2021

Two finished things to share this Friday. It sure felt good to get a few more things crossed off my Year of Projects list. Frostwork Scarf: This pattern (Ravelry link) is another great one from Susanna IC. The pattern comes with instructions for a scarf and a blanket (or really large shawl), but I felt… Continue reading FO Friday: July 16, 2021

Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 2 Update

A quick note to start today's update post that I've created a separate "checklist" page for all the projects for the year here. It'll help me be able to find them and if you're popping in late, hopefully will help keep you from having to search for the master list. So what have I been… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 2 Update

WIP Wednesday – July 7, 2021

Not just a Work in Progress Wednesday, but more like a What I'm...... Wednesday. I'm in the midst of several larger knitting, spinning and reading projects, so I thought I'd do a mid-week summary, just to document. Knitting: About a third done the Frostwork Scarf. I'm trying to do a repeat or two a day… Continue reading WIP Wednesday – July 7, 2021
