As far as crafting goes, 2019 has been a busy, if unfocused, year for me. I think the thing I got most of done was Dolores outfits and Harry 🙂 I made a lot of items this year, most of them smaller: 6 cowls 2 pairs of mittens 2 hats 2 shawls 3 pairs of… Continue reading 2019 Craftiness Review
As usual, this quiz is from Karen at NothingButKnit. How will you spend the last night of 2019? Will you party all night? Will you go to bed early? Do you have any little superstitions about ringing in the new year? Do you have craft plans for 2020? Are you hoping to try new things… Continue reading One Last Quiz for 2019

He got me some self-striping sock yarn in the Wonder Woman colorway from Turtlepurl yarn, and a very cool… Continue reading A Very Knitty Christmas
We are finally getting some snow here again – just in time for Christmas! Also, saw this on my way home from work today!
Halfway done with sleeve 1 and no disasters so far! It helps that they are pretty short sleeves. I haven’t had a lot of time to knit over the last couple days, but hopefully starting Thursday there will be lots more time. At least for a couple of days!

The yarn is plain linen, so it is a little stiff and crumpled right off the needle. The next part is sewing the shoulder seams, and then the sleeves get picked up… Continue reading Off to Sleeve Island
