Voila!* The latest in the cryptid knitalong series – Call of the Siren – has arrived! Last Friday the adventure began with the first clue. The yarn had just arrived that day after an extended tour of the greater Chicago area. (The dyers, Lattes & Llamas, live near Philadelphia and I live in Anchorage Alaska. … Continue reading Call of the Siren MKAL
Finally done with the body of my Glenesk! Excuse the horrible picture – waited until it was dark out and had to use weird indoor lighting. Better pictures to come! I just finished the body today. The last step was to do a three needle bind-off for the shoulders. Done and done! Then came the next… Continue reading Body of Work
Two things done! First and least work – the earbud pouch of previous post fame… Not that impressive, I’ll grant you, but it’s a thing and it’s done. A bit more impressive – Nessie socks are done! Just in time to start the next KAL 🙂 But first, a little work on Glenesk. What are… Continue reading Ta Dah!
As I have probably mentioned, I don’t really knit for other people very much. Most people either don’t really appreciate what goes into handknits, aren’t going to take care of them appropriately, or just don’t actually like knitted or handmade things. So I knit for myself and sometimes my Mom, and very occasionally my DH.… Continue reading Totally Knitworthy
Since the last post, I have been able to make at least a little progress on all three (3 – how did that happen!) projects on the needles. Nessie sock #2 is moving along – now you can see two little Nessies appearing on the foot! Glenesk is moving along as well – I’m about… Continue reading Still Moving Along!
My Nessie sock #2 is coming along very well… The leg is done and the heel is turned, now on to the foot! And I have to get a move on with it, as next week the Lattes & Llamas girls are starting a new cryptid knit MKAL – Call of the Siren – which… Continue reading Progress Report
Glenesk continues to proceed along at a reasonable pace… I’m less than a pattern repeat from being done with the torso. I have a terrible feeling it may be quite a bit too long, but if so I will deal with it later. After I finish the torso and do the sleeves, I plan to… Continue reading Yarn Wrangling
It was a crazy week, but I did get about halfway done with the second Nessie sock No Nessie sightings for this clue, but there are two children of Nessie on the foot of this sock. Next week they should start to show up! I have been on a real odyssey of knitting needles for… Continue reading Calm Waters at Loch Ness
Finally done with my first Nessie sock! I will say for anyone thinking about doing this project, I have size 10 feet, and the large size is pretty loose on me. So if I were to do this again, I’d probably do the medium size, or possibly go down to size 0 needles. The heck… Continue reading Nessie Sighting!
