In my last post, I complained a little bit that it didn’t look like there were going to be any Shark Week sock kits coming out of Jimmy Beans this year. Well, right after I published it, I decided to Google around a bit and see if anyone else was doing a shark week sock… Continue reading Shark Sock News
I got some real progress in on my intarsia-in-the-round socks this past weekend, and actually finished the intarsia part of one sock. I also got to have some charting fun! The sock pattern is from AC Knitwear’s Boost Your Knitting, and is called “Heartgyle Socks”. Knitted as given, it results in socks that look like… Continue reading Heart of Sharkness
There’s not much knitting progress to show you today. Clue 4 of the Perfect Blend shawl has not come in yet, so no changes there. The intarsia-in-the-round socks are in progress! I have halfway through the intarsia part of one of them, but right now it looks like a wad of double point needles with… Continue reading A Floral Interlude
Well, four rows of garter short, but I feel like I can call it close enough for a photo. The two pattern bands of Clue 3 are done, and that’s always the moderately challenging part. The second pattern band this week was the Cross Stitch knit stitch, also called the Indian Cross Stitch. I have… Continue reading PB Shawl – Halfway There!
I’m halfway through Clue 3 of my Perfect Blend MKAL, at which point it will be halfway done! Clue 3 is continuing on the theme from clue 2 of alternating an interesting stitch pattern section with a garter stitch section. The stitch patterns are just enough to keep from being boring, while being difficult. Pretty… Continue reading PB Shawl – Almost to the Halfway Point

By using lunchtimes and the drive time back and forth to last weekend’s fiber festival, I have finally gotten to the heel part. It is an afterthought heel, so the waste yarn is in, and now I’m starting on the leg part. I have an inch and a half or so to go, then it’s… Continue reading BYK Sock Progress Report
Mom, DH and I went to our local fiber festival today, and had a great time! Well, Mom and I did. DH had a good food-truck lunch and got in some reading and napping in the car 🙂 I went to this festival a couple of years ago, and had a good time then as… Continue reading MatSu Valley Fiber Festival!
I have 4 rows of garter stitch to do yet to finish this clue, but I think that’s pretty darn close to finished, so here’s how it’s going… Casapinka switched things up a little bit this week by adding some texture pattern rows between the garter sections. It definitely made the knitting more interesting, if… Continue reading Perfect Blend Shawl Clue 2
