I’m done with my skirt! I’m very happy with how it turned out. It is based on the Simple Straight Skirt pattern from Churchmouse Yarns and Teas, though I took a lot of liberties with it. For one thing, I changed the hem to a garter stitch band. The pattern hem is a 2×2 rib,… Continue reading Simple Straight Skirt Done!
We don’t do a ton of decorating for Christmas, but we do get lights up outside and do some lights and a smallish tree inside, plus put around some festive tchotchkes. And I spent the rest of the day knitting and watching Marvel movies 🙂 How was your Black Friday? Did you do any shopping?… Continue reading And Welcome to the Christmas Season
Hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a virtual get together with my DH’s family, and had our usual homemade pizza for dinner 🙂 Very thankful to have my Mom here with us, and other family member safe at their homes as well.
No socks to report on today, so I thought I’d throw in on Monday Notebooks, which nanacathy posts about somewhat regularly, and Kath at Backstage Knits recently posted about as well.

The tough part of this is picking the pocket yarn. This is definitely coming out of stash, as… Continue reading Pockets!
Nothing finished to report today. I made some progress on my skirt, but it doesn’t look much different. The lace panel I was working on in my Oregon Sky is done, and am just making a start on the next rainbow band Tomorrow should be a mostly lazy day – hopefully more to report tomorrow… Continue reading No FO
Now that things are settling down a little on the knitting front, I’ve got 2 projects going. My skirt continues to progress, and I picked up something I started and put aside this past spring. The skirt is moving along really well! It doesn’t look like much of anything other than static at this point,… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs
First thing first – my Haunted socks are done! The original intent was to make these much longer socks – maybe even knee length. But in the end I just couldn’t face making them any longer. Well, that just means I have pretty much of this yarn leftover, which will be pretty great for something!… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday: Haunted and Iceland
