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
My first projects of the new year are underway! The Dockside cardigan is my first sweater project. The pattern is from Amy Herzog’s Custom Fit, so is to my measurements and yarn gauge. So I have no excuses if I mess it up! The yarn is Cascade 220. My first pair of socks for this… Continue reading First Projects of 2020
Today was a pretty good day as far as getting some knitting done! Most of that was on my Forest Weave, but not all of it. Around midafternoon I realized I had complete flaked on my Custom Fit subscription for at least one, and possibly two, months. I have until the 31st to generate this… Continue reading Swatching on the High Seas
In between all the Knitting Season exercises and all the other stuff going on, I have been getting in a little work on my Find Your Fade. This evening I finally got to another color! I will be alternating the French Toast (lavender) and Gin and Tonic (blue) for a few rows, than on to… Continue reading A Little of This
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
