I’m a day late for the Wednesday WIPs, but do have some progress to show! First, the first of my Mom’s Christmas mittens is coming along OK. The pattern is charted really nicely, and it’s an easy knit so far. I’m still plugging away at section 3 of my Vertices United. However, the end of… Continue reading Thursday ThWIPs
I’m back! With another knitting book! Sorry for the long radio silence – I had a few potential health issues going on, but all is well and I’ve got bandwidth for blogging again. Anyway. Icelandic Mittens: Traditional Patterns Reimagined, does pretty much exactly what the title says it is going to do. The author examined… Continue reading Knitter’s Bookshelf: Icelandic Mittens
Since my current WIP is a little bit of a secret right now, I’m going to talk about what’s up next! First, I plan to finish my other current WIPs – my Vertices Unite, my Yawl cardigan, and my Mom’s Christmas Feeling mitts. I am pretty well along in section 3 of Vertices Unite (the… Continue reading What’s Next?
I don’t have anything to report on my WIPs this week, as I have set them all aside to do a test knit! Michele Bernstein of PDXknitterati was looking for test knitters for a new cowl/shawl called Cosette, and it looks like such a cool project I decided to give it a try! The knitting… Continue reading Look! A Shiny Thing!

Wait, you may say, haven’t you already talked about Scandinavian knitting? Maybe too much? And the answer is yes, I have talked about Scandinavian knitting. But no to the second question – is… Continue reading Knitter’s Bookshelf: Knit Like a Swede
I’ve got at least a little progress in on all of the current projects. Still on section 3 of Vertices United. Back finished on my Yawl cardigan – on to the fronts! This is not blocked, which is why it’s wonky. And finally, a little progress on my Mom’s Christmas mitten. What are you working… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs
I got a very small start on my Mom’s Christmas mittens! The pattern is Christmas Feeling (Ravelry link), and the yarn is Knit Picks Palette in Garnet Heather, Cream and Ivy. I probably won’t post a lot about these until they are given and opened. I’m relatively sure my Mom does not read my blog,… Continue reading Monday Mittens
Well, I finally did it – I mended one of my knitted items. Not many of my hand-knits have worn out on me yet, and the few that did I just threw out. However, the last thing to get a hole was one of my stripy Christmas socks. That is a relatively new pair of… Continue reading On the Mend
