Finally, some progress! My Yawl cardigan is finished, and I’m very happy with it 🙂 The pattern is Yawl by Amy Herzog, and the yarn is Noro Silk Garden Solo in the light grey colorway. Clue 2 of the Ocean Moon MKAL is done! I really love this design so far. Sorry for the long… Continue reading 1 Project and 1 Clue
Clue 1 of the Ocean Moon MKAL (Ravelry link) is done! The next clue completes this crescent. What is coming next? I have no idea, but I’m looking forward to seeing it 🙂
I’m working on the sleeves of my Yawl cardigan – hopefully will be done soon! The new project is my start on the Ocean Moon MKAL shawl. I made a mistake when I initially did the first moon, so had to rip back and reknit that part. So I have a bit to do yet… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs
My Vertices Unite is done! The pattern (Ravelry link) is by Stephen West. It uses 5 colors of fingering weight yarn, but does not use them up. At least it didn’t for me. So if you have partial balls of yarn in your stash, this might be a good one to use them up. It… Continue reading Vertices Unite- Done!

I’m on section 6 of Vertices Unite (Ravelry link)! So after this piece is done, I just have to do the border and it’s done. For my Yawl cardigan (Ravelry link), the back and fronts are done, and the sleeves are started. I haven’t done anything on my Mom’s mitts for a couple weeks, so… Continue reading Project Progress
Back in March I volunteered to do a test knit for Michele Bernstein, aka pdxknitterati. I mentioned it a couple of times here, but she had asked us not to share pictures until the pattern was released. Well, that happened earlier this week, so here is my Cossette! For different views of the project, see… Continue reading Mystery Test Knit Revealed!
So just like that, I finished section 3, then section 4, and am onto section 5! For anyone currently knitting a Vertices Unite or thinking about it, Sections 1 (dark and medium blue stripes on the left) and 3 (orange) are huge and a little disheartening. Section 2 (not visible in this photo) is a… Continue reading Vertices Unite Progress
