I took a VK Live class this morning on a technique I have been looking into for a while. It doesn’t seem to have a formal name, though the teacher of this class called it the double-pass technique. Essentially, you are working with two colors of yarn, and instead of working two rows (back and… Continue reading Double-Pass Technique
I’m off of sleeve island! I finished the second sleeve this evening and even got a little bit of a start with the collar. As usual, please excuse the terrible indoor nighttime photography 🙂 What are you working on these days, and how is it going?

The sleeve is going pretty easy, especially now that I’m halfway done with the decreases 🙂 As usual, please excuse the terrible indoor nighttime picture. After the sleeves are done, I’m… Continue reading Thorsday Throwback
I recently signed up to do a crochet along of Ziggy Interrupted (Rav link) run by Knit and Escape. I’ve admired this scarf for a while now, and also feel like I should do at least a little crocheting, hence committing to another project. And that’s OK. I have realized that I’m not going to… Continue reading Decisions, Decisions
