Ok, maybe not quite exciting enough to justify the exclamation point, but I’m pretty glad to be getting toward the end of these things 🙂 I just started on the ribbing for the Black Hole socks, but at least it’s a start. A few more inches, and they are done!
My socks and skirt and progressing. There’s not much to show – they look mostly the same, there’s just more of them now. The skirt actually has a little bit of shaping to it, but its not very visible. So since there’s not much to talk about with the current WIPs, what’s next? I finally… Continue reading No FO

This skirt has a little shaping built into it, in the form of gusset at the front and back of each hip, and some shaping in the back as well. I just finished the first hip… Continue reading Wrap Skirt Progress
Shortly after I started knitting my Buttoned Wrap Skirt this past weekend, I psyched myself into a random yarn panic. I tend to do this to myself sometimes, especially when the yarn I’m using is no longer obtainable. I like to buy remaindered yarn from the closeout section at Webs, so this does happen to… Continue reading Crazy Coincidence
Well, our temperatures are cooling down, the days are getting shorter, and our outdoor flower season is coming to an end. The planters and hanging baskets are gamely hanging in there, though not much is still growing. What is there is pretty cheerful, though! The marigolds and forget-me-nots by the walkway are still going strong,… Continue reading Flower Update – End of Summer
