I finished my bulky brioche Christmas cowl last night! This is going to be a last minute present for my Mom, so it was great to be able to get that done so quickly 🙂 Also, we put our lights up last weekend. They are so bright and cheerful, I sometimes go outside for a… Continue reading Suddenly – Christmas Spirit All Over the Place
Another month, another VK Live 🙂 I just took 3 classes this month, which used up the last of my credits from the Seattle event I was enrolled in for spring. Going forward, I will probably take a class here and there, but not as often. That said, they are pretty good events! If you… Continue reading And Yet More Classes
Just one more pass on the last row here, then the bind off, and this scarf is DONE! It has been an enjoyable knit, if a little repetitive. But it’s taught me a few more brioche moves that I think will let me make most of the things I eventually want to make. I have… Continue reading So Close!
Not much to report on the knitting front. We had a lot of little errands to run and things to do today, so did not get as much knitting done as I wanted to. Hopefully tomorrow will be a quiet, knit-filled day! What I did get done is a few more repeats on the Falling… Continue reading A Few Brioches More
Not a lot to report on the knitting front. The socks are progressing, but not in any really dramatic way quite yet. The brioche scarf is progressing pretty well also. I’m about 2.5 pattern repeats along out of 7. It is very cushy and I think will be nice to wear. Also, I’m getting good… Continue reading Brioche Progress
This weekend my knitting time was focused on the Flying Leaves brioche scarf. This is the project I ordered yarn for, as I had nothing suitable in house for it. So the yarn I ordered turned out to be problematic. I utterly failed to be enchanted by this yarn combo. The yarn is fine. The… Continue reading Flying Brioche
A little earlier this fall, I talked about tuck stitches in relation to a class with Nancy Marchant of brioche knitting fame, who is the inventor/developer of this new technique for hand knitters. Her latest book, Tuck Stitches: Sophistication in Hand Knitting, is on this technique. I actually bought this book over the summer to… Continue reading Knitter’s Bookshelf: Tuck Stitches
Well, it’s been a week of getting things done! So far this week I have finished my Valentine’s Day socks, which went pretty well. The yarn is from Gnome Acres, and the color is I Lurve Ewe, one of her Valetine/Galentine colors. I bought the yarn a couple of years ago and just now got… Continue reading Friday FOs!
In the week since I last talked about how well my standing projects were going, I have had a rich array of distractions, some of which have joined my list of existing projects. The Twinkle has not moved since last weekend. I have made a little progress on the socks, though not a whole lot…… Continue reading Totally Focused…Look! A Squirrel!
