I never thought I would see the day – my Find Your Fade Shawl is done! I finished knitting it the other night, but needed to get it blocked. It is huge! We had to set up folding tables in the garage this morning to get it done. I didn’t block it too aggressively –… Continue reading Fade Found!
Since I finished one of my WIPs, I decided to go back to one of the WIPs that has been hanging out in the bin waiting to be finished – my Find Your Fade shawl. This thing has been laying around since I had a morale failure much earlier this year. That was a shame,… Continue reading Refinding My Fade
I’m afraid nothing like as exciting as the used book finds happening yesterday or today – just plugging away at my Find Your Fade. My intention was to just go at it until it was done, but I might die of boredom before that happens. It’s 8 more rows of garter, then 18 rows of… Continue reading Fading Away
My Find Your Fade shawl is quickly becoming one of my longer running projects – but that’s fair because this thing is huge! I took it along with me on our trip to Seward, which gave me two hours of car time each way, plus some time in the evenings when we had settled in.… Continue reading Fading Along
I’m feeling that sort of blah that you sometimes get after you are done with a big project. So no big news to report, but a few small things.

I have actually gotten started with writing my cowl pattern and doing a version 2, incorporating some changes I decided on after working version 1. So there’s some knitting, but broken up with typing and figuring out Stitch Fiddle. What I did get… Continue reading Minor Progress
Managed to get some knitting time in this evening, and got some done on my Find Your Fade. I’m a few rows into the Gin and Tonic section, and am really loving the color so far! The yarn is Madelinetosh’s Tosh Merino Light, and I am really enjoying this yarn. The colors are gorgeous, and… Continue reading TGIF!
My Find Your Fade continues on! I just finished with the French Toast (lavender) and am going into two sections of the Gin and Tonic (light blue) shown here. And other than a little noodling around with gauge swatched and caking up some skeins for small other projects, that’s pretty much what I got accomplished… Continue reading Continuing to Fade Away
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
