I recently signed up to do a crochet along of Ziggy Interrupted (Rav link) run by Knit and Escape. I’ve admired this scarf for a while now, and also feel like I should do at least a little crocheting, hence committing to another project. And that’s OK. I have realized that I’m not going to… Continue reading Decisions, Decisions
Making progress on the DH’s socks!
Today my Mom and I attended a virtual yarn tasting! Hill Country Weavers in Austin Tx ran this Zoom event, which features a presentation by a representative from Blue Sky Fibers, who talked about a new yarn line that just came out and also some new colors for existing yarns.

This will not fit around my shoulders as is. So off to the blocking instruction videos! After soaking it and then… Continue reading And Now for the Blocking Part
The knitting part of my Evolve cowl is done! However, the interesting big for this one is going to be the next part. This pattern is part of AC Knitwear’s Confident Knitting pattern/technique club. This month’s lesson is on Excellent Blocking, so I think we’re about to get fancy with this. More on this over… Continue reading The Knitting Part is Done
