It turned out exactly as I hoped it would, which is a real relief 🙂 I had to show it folded up like this as it’s a pretty big shawl. Here it is being blocked last night (cat added for scale). And a closer picture of the skull lace with the beads I suddenly decided… Continue reading Betwixt Shawl is Done!
I just got a start on some socks for my DH over the weekend – it’s nice to have something completely plain to work on again! I am using my usual toe-up sock recipe, so these should go reasonably quickly. If you are a sock knitter, do you prefer toe-up or top-down, or are you… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday: More Socks for DH
One effect of having only one project on the needs that I had not foreseen is that you don’t have much to blog about. Well, anyway, here’s more of that one project I’m working on! I’m about halfway done with the lace, so making good progress! I am rethinking my next project though. I was… Continue reading More Betwixt Progress
For the first time in a long time, I have just one WIP going right now – my Betwixt shawl. I’m done with the mosaic part and starting on the lace! The plan is to finish this project off, then move on to a couple other things. Hoping to be done with this by the… Continue reading Wednesday WIP
The pattern is Roam*, and the yarn is Silky Solo in the Boheme colorway. I will say this yarn is a little splitty, but it has a really beautiful sheen. It kind of balances out 🙂 I really enjoyed knitting this project. It is a nice mix of stockinette with bursts of pattern knitting. The… Continue reading Roam* Finished!

What I did want to talk about is a show I have been watching and book I recently read. If you like cozy mysteries, true crime podcasts, and/or New York, you… Continue reading Only Murders On this Blog
I’m trying out some tea sample boxes from a new-to-me online tea shop – Sips by. Their big thing seems to monthly subscriptions, but that isn’t what I did, at least not yet. In addition to the subscriptions, they also sell themed sample boxes, and also just individual teas. I lucked into a good discount… Continue reading Tea For Two: Sips by
Now that the eternal Halloween socks are done, I decided to focus on my Betwixt shawl for this week. It won’t be finished by the end of the week, but I am making some good progress. I’ve only got about a little more of the mosaic pattern to go, then it’s on to the skull… Continue reading Wednesday WIP
My Fright Night socks are done! They turned out pretty well, and I’m thrilled to have them done in time for Halloween 🙂 The stitching is a little loose in the colorwork section, but I suspect that will even out once they are blocked.
