…is the overall impression of my wardrobe 😀 Everything is proceeding along – not super fast, but moving. Really just starting on the socks and the Arrowhead cardigan, and a little more than halfway with the shawl. But I’m happy with how it’s all going. What are you working on right now – crafty or… Continue reading Several Shades of Gray
I started my Halloween socks for this year! This entire project is from deep in the vaults. The pattern is Fright Night by Lara Smoot, who took all of her patterns off the market a few years about, so I’m glad I bought it when I did. The gray sparkle yarn was dyed by Skeins… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
Sorry for the long radio silence – it was just kind of a nutty week. Nothing bad going on, just busy with various errands and chores in the evenings. We did also do a fun thing this week – we went to the AK State Fair! I didn’t do well with getting pictures of most… Continue reading Updates
I started a new project today, the Arrowhead Cardigan (Ravelry link) by Anna Cohen. The main color yarn is Dream in Color Classy in the Peacock Shadow colorway, and the contrast color is Malabrigo Rios in the Solis colorway. At least I think so. I’m a little concerned that there may not be enough contrast,… Continue reading Arrowhead Cardigan Cast-on
Even though things are cooling down a bit, we just had a week of mixed rain and sun that our flowers really seemed to enjoy 🙂 They are blooming away!
With my cowl and DH’s socks done, I have one project left on the needles right now – my Lustrous Shawl. I’ve got 2 repeats done out of 37, so there’s a while to go yet. However, it does decrease throughout, so it will get easier as it goes. It feels weird just having one… Continue reading Lustrous Shawl
I got the last little bit of DH’s socks done this evening! He then engaged in a little sock modeling: Well, they fit OK and he had fun with it, so why not? These are my usual no-pattern toe up socks, and the yarn is Katla Icelandic lambswool sokkaband.
I am SO close to finishing DH’s socks! SO CLOSE! But now it’s 11 pm and I have to go to work tomorrow, and it’s just not happening tonight. Tomorrow is another day! Do you ever stay up late trying to finish things for no good reason at all?
This is the first of what will likely be several Halloween projects this year – the Cemetery Drive cowl (Ravelry link). The dark background color is Poe and his Raven from Pandia’s Jewels, and the greenish color is Ectoplasm, though I’m not sure of the dyer. It has a handwritten tag that leaves off a… Continue reading Cemetery Drive Cowl – Done!
