I actually starting this Friday night after I finished the Water shawl, but that doesn’t have any alliteration 🙂 I got my Throwback cardigan started, and it is going so fast! Seriously, after so many projects with fingering weight yarn and little needles, this thing is growing like magic. I have one more series of… Continue reading Saturday Start
Tomorrow I am off on my first work trip for this go-round. This time it’s to Juneau, AK. I get there tomorrow morning, and will hopefully be home Thursday night, knock wood. Other than the work part of the time there, my entire planning for this trip has been yarn-based. What am I wearing? Who… Continue reading Packing
I interrupt my story about VK Live – will get back to that tomorrow. I finished my Gray Cardigan! It fit great and exactly what I wanted. It will work great with my wardrobe, and is basically perfect. Sigh! So happy! The yarn is Ironstone Warehouse Flake Cotton, which as far as I know is… Continue reading Gray Cardigan is Done!

I have been bringing it along with me to work on at lunch, and also on the ride into work and home again, and… Continue reading Gray Cardigan has a Back
Finally, it is done! Completely finished and done! I was hoping for a scenic photoshoot this weekend, but that didn’t quite happen. It’s hot and raining and we had a kind of a busy one. Maybe at some point when it is cooler I will be someplace scenic with it on and get a nice… Continue reading Glenesk is done!
Gauge swatch – actual footage! After having this pattern in my Ravelry queue for a little over two years, and having the kit for about a year and a half, I’m finally getting around to it! Glenesk is a stranded colorwork cardigan designed by Jade Starmore. My original plan for this sweater was to get… Continue reading At Long Last, Glenesk
