My red, white, and blue version of the Shooting Star scarf is finished! All in all it took me about a week to make, so it’s a pretty quick project. It uses roughly a single skein’s worth of fingering weight yarn, and is a great way to use up either scraps or a miniskein bundle.… Continue reading Firework Shooting Star Done!
Not as much going on this week on the knitting front – I haven’t touched my Powdermill this week, though I really should. I have been keeping up on the Celtic Mist MKAL. Here are clues 3 and 4 We are halfway done! So far each of the clues has been pretty reasonable, though the… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs
The pattern is Forest Path Hap (Ravelry Link) by Patricia Anne Fortune, and the yarn is Rauma Finull in the 4130 colorway. It was mostly a relaxing knit, as most of it is either stockinette or moss stitch. The lace part is pretty straightforward and easy. The edging is a version of picot, so it… Continue reading Forest Path Hap Done!

For a change I’ve got three projects on the go right now! Powdermill is moving right along! It’s one of those fun knits that looks much more complicated than it is. I am enjoying this one a lot, though it may wind up in hibernation for the next month or so because I have way… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs
A few really fun-looking knit alongs have come up lately, knocking me firmly off of my knitting plan for 2023. The Shawl KAL from The Woolly Thistle, actually already started a few days ago. However, it runs until June, so there’s plenty of time to join in! The fun think about this KAL is you… Continue reading KALing Through Spring
Ocean Sunset is done! The pattern is Ocean Moon by Ambah O’Brien, and the yarn is Sunset Moon, a yarn kit that was created specifically for this pattern by Mystic Fiber Co, previously known as Miami Fiber Co. These colors are so outside my wheelhouse, but I am completely in love with them. Like most… Continue reading Sunsetting this Shawl

She is an art historian and has been recreating vintage knitwear for quite a while. (40 years!) Although the book has quite a few patterns, it’s not just a pattern book. There… Continue reading Knitter’s Bookshelf: Timeless Tyrolean Knitwear
