The Black Hole socks are done! DH was having fun posing 🙂 I know these look like they are hanging off the front of his toes, but his feet really are that long! Anyway, whew! Glad those are done! Going to give myself a little break before the next pair of socks. Time for some… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
Well, the Buttoned Wrap Skirt did not go as planned. The fabric wasn’t right, and basically, this yarn did not work with this pattern. Which is fine! It’s a nice pattern, and eventually I will find the yarn that will work for it. Maybe even the suggested yarn – who knows? And for now, this… Continue reading Try Again
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
Making some progress on DH’s Black Hole socks, but not a lot since last week. I got no knitting done this evening, and it’s not looking great for tomorrow either. This afternoon I got an idea about how to move around some furniture (and get rid of some of a couple pieces) to solve some… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
Last month I said no more VK Lives for a couple of months. Well, I lied. But there was a really good reason – a class I have been looking at for a while that has consistently sold out finally had a few slots left. So I had to jump on it! The class was… Continue reading There Was a Really Good Reason
It is coming along! Because it’s mostly straight knitting with a seed stitch border, it knits up pretty quickly. 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
Nothing that dramatic is happening with the DH’s socks. I turned the heels (YAY!) and am proceeding up the legs, so that’s good. However, exciting and dramatic things are being observed in real actual black holes out in space! You can read about it here (on Nature.com) or here (on the Weather Channel). I’d say… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday: Black Holes Colliding
For my next project, I am going back to the plan! I’m making the Buttoned Wrap Skirt from Churchmouse Yarns & Teas, using some Debbie Bliss Milano from my stash. I did a swatch last night, and the yarn is slightly off of gauge. The pattern calls for a slightly heavier yarn than this, but… Continue reading What’s Next?
