One of my current WIPs, a Holiday Doodle cowl, has been giving me fits. I kept trying to start, and just could not get enthused about it at all. I just could not get the right yarn for one of the colors I wanted to use. First try – that yellow is way too bright.… Continue reading Finding Just the Right Gold
Fist KISS mitten is done! I’m going to take a couple days to work on the other two WIPs a little bit, then casting on the second one sometime next week 🙂 Happy Friday!
Well, I’m back to working on more than one project again! It feel more normal, but I notice the projects are moving a bit slower 🙂 The blue-green cardigan fronts in the back are Drops 106-11 Jacket (Ravelry link), which I started much earlier this year and set aside for Halloween knitting time. The black… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs
Hope everyone who celebrates had a magical Halloween. For everyone else, hope your Monday was good 🙂 My annual yarnstravaganza is over now, leaving me with a lot of miniskeins and some nifty small project kits. Here are the last two of the Fangirl Fibers Cryptids kits: Left is Nessie, which comes with a hat… Continue reading Happy Halloween!!

I have quite a bit of both the self-striping and the black yarn left. There is also a cowl pattern with… Continue reading FO Friday
Pattern is Ghost Knitter’s Shawl by Ambah O’Brien.

All from stash! Almost ready for spooooOOoOoky season!
I swear I will get back to Sock-it-to-Me Monday one of these days, though probably not until after the holidays. Until then I have an entirely self-imposed ton of mitts and mittens to make, preferably before Christmas. So here is my current mitt, just finished today… Bone-A-Fide mitt #1! This is from this year’s Jimmy… Continue reading Mitt Monday
My Ghost Knitter’s shawl is moving along pretty nicely! I’m about 2/3 of the way through the skull lace, so getting near the end of it now. I’m still just working on this one project, but a little antsy to get back to doing 2 or 3!
For the first time in a long time, I am working on only one project! After I finished the Bone-A-Fide hat, I decided to just focus on my Ghost Knitter’s shawl for a while to see what kind of progress I could make. I’m finished with the striped part of the shawl and into the… Continue reading Wednesday WIP
