After a little bit of a false start last week ( I was doing the star trails AND the star stitches wrong), I am making good progress on my Half the Knit Sky shawl 🙂 There is just enough variety to keep it interesting, but it is pretty straightforward knitting. The star stitches were new,… Continue reading Wednesday WIP
My scrappy mismatch Christmas socks are proceeding along. After the charcoal stripe I’m currently working on, I have two more miniskein stripes for each sock and a charcoal between them. So not much further to go! How are your projects (crafty or not) going?

When I picked it back up a little while ago, there was just the front to finish. Originally I was hoping to get done by the end of the… Continue reading Niazuma Done!
