More progress on the Elizabeth Montague socks! Just a few more rows and I can turn the heels 🙂
Sorry for the long radio silence – busy work week! However, I did manage to get some knitting in 🙂 My Bonbori (Ravelry link) is coming along pretty well – I am on the last section! There are still quite a few rows to do, but at least there’s progress. This is a ridiculously big… Continue reading Progress Report
Still working away on the Elizabeth Montague socks – they are a pretty fun knit so far 🙂 Just a few rows to go until the heel increases start. This pattern uses a fleegle heel, which I have not done before, so I’m interested to see how this goes. I’m pretty happy with my usual… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday

First you have to knit your… Continue reading And Then There Were Three

I’ll be starting my first Bluestock socks tomorrow, then probably the June Confident Knitting project on Tuesday, so Bonbori will go back to… Continue reading One WIP Weekend

Throwback is done! This one is hard to get good pictures of – sunlight completely blew the photos out, and indoors wasn’t much better. Probably the best picture of it that captures the colors the best is here. But it is finished! I did do a few modifications. I added buttons and buttonholes, which the… Continue reading Throwback Thorsday!
Making good progress on DH’s socks! I’m a few inches past the ankles, and a few more inches to go!
