You know how sometimes it becomes generally known that you like something, and then that is the thing that people give you? Like people that are vocal about loving chocolate get chocolate for presents? Well, apparently I am the crazy tea lady at work. Which I am totally fine with, because it results in people… Continue reading OT: Unexpected Teatour
Took a break from exercises tonight to pick back up with my Find Your Fade. It has been so gray and cold and bleah, I needed a shot of color!
A couple weeks ago, I wrote about how I was attempting to design knitting motifs based on hex signs. The exercise is part of the Knitting Seasons creativity thing I have been doing.

Today a bunch of things got started but none of it looks like much yet 🙂 More on these topics in the next couple of days!
I didn’t have a lot of knitting time today, as I had to get some chores done, and we had a few more errands to run, but I did get a little time in on the sample gansey, aka Dolores’ gansey. One of the features of ganseys is adding the wearer’s initials on the bottom… Continue reading Sample Gansey Progress
