For the last couple of months, I have been noodling around during lunch at work with some small skeins of yarn that have been floating around the stash for a couple years. I did not have a plan for this yarn, and it didn’t seem to really go together except for being the same gauge… Continue reading Random Unplanned Cowl
Got my mosaic knitting project done this evening! I cheated a little on the colors for the final two pattern sections. But I was running low on the neon peach, and thought that throwing a little accent section of blue would look nice anyway. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out 🙂 It was… Continue reading Colorshift Mosaic Cowl Done!
It’s May, which means there is a new project with a new technique to learn up on the Boost Your Knitting page! This month it is tubular cast on in the round, as part of making some lovely cabled mittens. I’m pretty excited about this one, so I want to get a move on and… Continue reading Mosaic Coming Together
Thanks to everyone who weighed in on the stockinette vs. garter question on this chevron section! I did decide to just keep going and mirror the sections. I hate the garter parts less now that there are a few more repeats of the stitch pattern, though I still think the stockinette parts definitely look better… Continue reading Chevrons This Way and That

Thank you to everyone who ventured an opinion on the colors I auditioned to start a Colorshift Mosaic Cowl. The votes were more or less split between the options I was thinking about, and I remained as undecided as I was when the process started. However, Karen of nothingbutknit had an excellent suggestion for mixing… Continue reading Colorshift Plan Shift
Find Your Fade is in timeout for a little bit. Just too much garter for too long. I finished the section I was in, but need a little recovery time before I go back in. I’ve been wanted to try out mosaic knitting, so found a cowl pattern that has been in my library for… Continue reading Color Auditions
Well, that’s it. I have published a pattern! Rainflow Dissolving is up on Ravelry as of a couple minutes ago! My blog friends – you have been with me on this journey, and have been so supportive and generally awesome. From encouraging comments on the initial exercises to helping me pick out a name. To… Continue reading It. Is. Done!
