I got a good start on my last run-through of my new crescent shawl design. The first 2 versions used 100 yds each of 4 colors – 1 beaded, the other not. I wanted to try a version with 5 smaller miniskeins of a more average size. When the directions are finished, I should have… Continue reading Crescent Shawl Design – Last Version, I Swear
We had a little visitor the other day! He was wandering around bleating for a little bit, until he found his way to where he needed to go 🙂 On the way he enjoyed a tasty floral snack! Sorry this picture isn’t great – he was moving around quite a bit 🙂

I’m taking a short break from my shawl design to work on my Forest Weave. It is coming along pretty nicely!

The showtimes meant coming home for dinner and then hanging around for a while and then going back out, which is a thing that almost never happens for us. But we went, and boy am… Continue reading Go Go Godzilla!
It was a big chore night, so I didn’t get any knitting in tonight. Parts of the house are significantly less dusty and disorganized than they were just a few scant hours ago, though! I did sneak my shawl along to work and hid for 15 minutes at lunch so I could get a row… Continue reading So Many Chores!
This has been a satisfyingly yarny weekend! I did have some errands to run and chores to do, but in amongst all that, I did get to do a lot of knitting 🙂 I did get some done on Forest Weave, but it really doesn’t look any different than it did before. There’s a bit… Continue reading Very Yarny Weekend
