WIPs

If you were afraid I'd given up crafting after the past few months, fear not! (Were you scared? I was. I've hardly been crafting at all since May.) While I'm still working on the second pair of purple socks, there has been a good deal of progress made--at least, compared to the last time I… Continue reading WIPs

Works in Progress

Not much knitting has happened of late. I've been having a lot of hand/wrist pain lately due to a dislocated thumb, so I'm working a lot slower than usual.  I'm not quite sure what yarn this is--I seem to have misplaced the ball band. I'm also improvising on the pattern, which is toe up with an… Continue reading Works in Progress

Works in Progress

I feel like I've been less than productive of late. I've started several projects, but none of them are coming along quite as well--I should say, as fast--as I had hoped. I don't know how I feel about these socks. I like the yarn. I'm having trouble trusting the pattern, though. It just doesn't look… Continue reading Works in Progress

A Mess of Finished Objects

I have been massively productive on the knitting since I went on my holiday hiatus. Most of these things are gifts, but a few I made for myself. This year was unusual, in that I actually had knitwear requests from family members. Usually they are pretty ambivalent to my knitting (I think "tolerant" might be… Continue reading A Mess of Finished Objects

The Yarny Bits

Projects finished: 4 washcloths and a headband Nothing terribly earth shattering. I've got a couple of ongoing projects: The village socks. The village season is pretty much over, but I've still got a foot  and heel to finish. I'm also swatching for a shrug. I started out really excited for this project, but now I'm… Continue reading The Yarny Bits

How to Fix Holes in Knitting, or Why the Kitten is in the Dog House

Hey guys, this is a pretty picture heavy post, just a heads up. I'm also having some issues with formatting on WP, so I apologize in advance if things look a little screwy. I've done everything I can to fix it! The Lokibeast is very fond of socks. For some reason, he has decided that… Continue reading How to Fix Holes in Knitting, or Why the Kitten is in the Dog House

Works in Progress

Oh, hi Friday! You snuck up on me. When did you get here?  I've been working on several projects lately, and I've even finished one! I finished the village socks with only a little yarn left over. This is an improvised pattern. I think I have my own personal sock recipe down for the most… Continue reading Works in Progress

Works in Progress

Nothing super interesting to show this month, just some repeat projects. I've got a couple of things planned that I'll be working on later, though. The socks are part of my Village gear. I like to keep a pair on the needles at all times to work on during quiet moments. At our training weekend… Continue reading Works in Progress

Finished Object Friday

Well, will you look at that! I finished a few things! I refer to this shawl as The Sea Monster. I was supposed to be an illusion project, but then it got completely out of hand. I liked the colors so well on their own that I decided to leave off the secret message I… Continue reading Finished Object Friday
