Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Normally, I’m a solid-color knitting kind of gal. I like simple things that go easily into my wardrobe. If I’m feeling feisty, then I whip out two-color knitting, or knit with a variegated and solid. Sometimes I use variegated or tonal yarns, but usually those projects end up being gifts for other people.

UFO Sightings

I made a few small dents in the UnFinished Object bin over the weekend. On Friday, I cast off the dish mat that I started just before we moved into our current house--back in November, I think.

Knitting Status and the Manicure of the Week

It seems that I've spent the bulk of the past two months waiting on people to get back with me about various things, mostly job related, which has lead to a lot of anxiety knitting. Mostly, this has been on the livingroom afghan, which has had several rows added this week as Missouri and I… Continue reading Knitting Status and the Manicure of the Week

Life Keeps Getting in the way of My Life

I have things I want to make, do, and see. Places I would like to visit, chores that need done, books that should be written (more that need read), groceries that need bought and bills that need paid. But as of late, it seems I mostly have knits that need designed. This is the current… Continue reading Life Keeps Getting in the way of My Life
