As yet more proof that I can be thrown off my plan by almost anything, this week I started knitting the Ixchel (apparently pronounced ee-SHELL), a pattern that did not exist in my world up until a month ago or so. This in spite of having kits in my possession for up to three years… Continue reading Ixchel!
Before I stop going on about VK Live in San Francisco, I did want to tell you about the two other classes I took. Saturday morning was Color Interaction in Fair Isle, which was taught by Mary Jane Mucklestone. She gave us each 6 skeins of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift (there was a materials fee for… Continue reading VK Live 3 – Last Post on This, I Swear
In addition to the classes and the pervasive knittiness in the air, the other great thing about this event was the shopping. The vendor room was BIG – a whole grand ballroom – and the list of vendors was 2 double-column pages long. So much yarn! Of course, not every shop was going to be… Continue reading VK Live 2 – The Shoppening
I interrupt my story about VK Live – will get back to that tomorrow. I finished my Gray Cardigan! It fit great and exactly what I wanted. It will work great with my wardrobe, and is basically perfect. Sigh! So happy! The yarn is Ironstone Warehouse Flake Cotton, which as far as I know is… Continue reading Gray Cardigan is Done!
Just got back from Vogue Knitting Live in San Francisco! Mom and I went for three days (and a day of travel on each end of that) and had a great knitty time! There was so much going on, I’m going to do a couple of posts on this trip. Too much to write in… Continue reading VK Live! Part 1
We had a moose in our yard this evening! Here he is… I acknowledge that this is yet another blog post on my knitting blog that has no knitting. If it helps, I was knitting when I caught sight of him 🙂 But it was so cool to see him this close, and wanted to… Continue reading Moose!
I don’t think I’ve ever talked about what a typical Saturday out and about looks like for me. But a few weekends of sticking close to the house made me realize again how fun it it is to get out in Anchorage and do our “errands”. We started downtown, as my Mom wanted to pick… Continue reading Out and About Weekend
Yes, sorry – another sleeve joke 🙂 That’s what I have been working on – sleeves. Although these are short (elbow length) sleeves, they seem to be taking forever to knit. In reality, it’s been a little less than a week. It just feels like so much longer! Two more inches to go, then I… Continue reading A Call to Arms
I once again spent the weekend making something for my sheep doll rather than doing any serious knitting for myself, or indeed anything much else at all. Although I do in fact have the kit for her next official pattern, I decided to try my hand at designing something for her myself – a pareo!… Continue reading Dolores is Beach-Ready!
