Year of Projects 2022: Week 18

This week has mostly been about trying to get my Misurina Tee finished up. It's been a focus piece when I've had some knitting time in the evenings and I'm happy to report that I finished this one up! I've actually got it on today and it's the perfect weight for our sunny but breezy… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 18

I'm a day late for this week's check-in but whew! It's been a week! Happy to say that I finally have landed with a new job that should start mid-May. I'm working for the same company but no longer as an independent contractor which will make taxes SO much easier. Friday into Saturday was wild… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 17

Only knitting and crochet projects to talk about this week. We've been enjoying our beautiful weather in the afternoons and working on putting in fencing for a garden/sitting area off our back deck. We have a LOT of deer here and with so little green, they tend to eat everything - including "non-deer-friendly" plants, so… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 16

Year of Projects 2022: Week 12

Lots of finished things to talk about this week. I can finally share the preview knit I was working on for one of Brooklyn Tweed's spring design groups: Oiva. This is a VERY generous scarf - I'd even call it more like a narrow stole - with tons of texture. The pattern includes a textured… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 12
