Now that I have actually made a second CustomFit pattern, some of you have asked about the process and how it worked out for me. So here it is 🙂 And I apologize in advance – this is a bit long. There are some preliminary steps you have to take to get started with CustomFit.… Continue reading CustomFit Experience
They don’t look like much, but here are the sweater fronts from my Dockside cardigan – just 1/2 and inch from done! So hopefully that will get done tomorrow and I can get them blocking. Then on to sleeve island! How are your projects going?
Dockside is moving right along! One of the nifty features of the fronts and the sleeves is that the ribbing doesn’t end in a straight line. On the fronts the line of the ribbing changing to stockinette forms angles in to the center. There is a similar slant on the sleeves. It’s not a lot… Continue reading Progress on Both Fronts
I got the back of my Dockside cardigan done! I also got the fronts cast on and a couple rows of the ribbing done. So progress! Then I switched over to my Wonder Woman socks and got a little bit done on them as well. More about them tomorrow. How are your projects going?
Now that the decreases are happening, the fronts are moving along pretty quickly! I have about 30 more rows of neck decreases, then a little shoulder shaping, and done! Well, except for blocking and a little edging.

I think it should start to go fast now! I just keep decreasing for the V-neck, do a few more… Continue reading Weekend Other WIP Report

All I have to do is knit up swatches of the yarn I am going to use for those sweaters or vests, and get in there and generate the patterns. Guess what?… Continue reading Who Swatches the Swatchmen?
My Schooner has a back! Or ‘stern’ in nautical boat talk. But in any case – it’s blocking now – very happy with how it is turning out 🙂 Whew! Almost halfway done! Schooner is a tank, so I just need to knit the front, sew the two halves together, then knit some ribbing around… Continue reading Schooner Progress
Schooner is coming along – I’m a few inches past where I had to rip back, so I’m happy with that. Now it’s just straight stockinette for what will likely feel about like forever, then a bit of excitement binding off a few stitches for the armholes, then on to the shoulders. On the one… Continue reading Wednesday WIP
