I have a couple of WIPs going right now, but the one I haven’t talked about recently here is my Halloween sweater I’m past the main colorwork area and have separated out the sleeves, so it’s just straight stockinette for a while. I will be doing a smaller colorwork band at the hem, and the… Continue reading Wednesday WIP
In keeping with my strict personal rule of no more pattern clubs, I signed up for the Knitsonik and Friends Colour to Knit Club. The first pattern, Brightlingsea, came out over the weekend, and I am busy with ideas on how to adapt it! More on this to come, probably after this weekend. Do you… Continue reading Colorwork Fun!
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
Well, I have made some progress on my Arachne this week, and finally remembered to take some pictures outside in the daylight! I have been focusing on it in the evenings, mostly because there is a storm of other projects coming up and I wanted to get a good start. I am trying something a… Continue reading Arachne Update

Of course then there’s weaving in ends, and blocking, and very possibly undoing the waist… Continue reading Ixchel – Actual Progress
I didn’t have a whole lot of time to knit tonight, but I did get a little bit done on sleeve #2. Two more rows in the allover pattern, and then I start to do the sleeve decrease and just the arrow and moon pattern down the center of the sleeve. Starting to see a… Continue reading Ixchel – Sleeve #2
Today I got the main part of the body knitting done. I mentioned earlier that for the last design section, I was going to just knit the gold on rows where there were enough stitches in a pattern repeat to make it worth while, and then duplicate stitch in the rest. Here it is almost… Continue reading Ixchel Update
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!
