I’m back to having three projects on the needles! First is my Drops cardigan, which I’m knitting out of yarn hand dyed by my friend Alissa of Headknits. I started this over the summer and then set it aside for some Halloween knitting. At this point, the back and fronts are done and I am… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs
This is my second short cowl from the Holiday Doodle cowl pattern. It’s a pretty simple one – the pattern has a lot of lovely stranded knitting motifs included, but I just picked a couple for this one. The yarn is all Knit Picks Swish in White, Arctic, Serene, and Dusk. I’m happy with it… Continue reading Snowflake Cowl is Done!

The lace patterns he featured in the class are not ones commonly… Continue reading Serbian Lace

Now that the gold yarn situation is sorted out, my Mom’s Holiday Doodle cowl is moving along. And finally, have a start on the cuff of the second of my brother’s KISS mittens. What… Continue reading Thursday ThWIPs
One of my current WIPs, a Holiday Doodle cowl, has been giving me fits. I kept trying to start, and just could not get enthused about it at all. I just could not get the right yarn for one of the colors I wanted to use. First try – that yellow is way too bright.… Continue reading Finding Just the Right Gold
Fist KISS mitten is done! I’m going to take a couple days to work on the other two WIPs a little bit, then casting on the second one sometime next week 🙂 Happy Friday!
