I’ve gotten in some work on my Bonbori shawl (Rav link) over the past week! And also finally took advantage of the natural light outdoors to get a better picture! I’m 8 rows away from the next increase and going into chart C. There are 4 charts, so slightly over half of the directions, but… Continue reading Bonbori Progress
I took a VK Live class this morning on a technique I have been looking into for a while. It doesn’t seem to have a formal name, though the teacher of this class called it the double-pass technique. Essentially, you are working with two colors of yarn, and instead of working two rows (back and… Continue reading Double-Pass Technique
I’m off of sleeve island! I finished the second sleeve this evening and even got a little bit of a start with the collar. As usual, please excuse the terrible indoor nighttime photography 🙂 What are you working on these days, and how is it going?
Having had such a good time at the last yarn tasting I participated in, I went poking around for some more and found out that Berroco also has one going right now. Our kits arrived in short order, and we got into them! The top two yarns are Remix Light and Summer Sesame, the middle… Continue reading Yarn Tasting #2

Each section expands a bit from the previous, with the same number of bubbles per row, but each bubble getting a little bigger. So by the end the bubbles are almost rectangles rather… Continue reading Thursday ThWIP

This month’s project is the Variance hat, and the technique is catching long floats in Fair Isle work. The project photo you see there is the Designer’s Choice yarn colors –… Continue reading May Confident Knitting Project
Made a little more progress on DH’s socks this week! I’ve got about an inch and a half before I turn the heel, so it’s moving along 🙂
I mostly measure the turn of the season by waiting until the enormous mound of snow and ice at the end of our cul de sac has finally melted – YAY, it’s spring! We had two little chickadees hopping around the tree outside our living room window. I have high hopes they will nest in… Continue reading Spring is Finally Springing!
