I cast on a new project on Saturday – the It’s All Right mobius cowl. It is really more of a shoulder -width wrap than a cowl, but you could really wear it either way 🙂 The design is by Ellen Thomas, The Chilly Dog. It is an MKAL which Maker’s Mercantile is putting on.… Continue reading Saturday Start
I got done knitting my Perfect Blend shawl Thursday night, which was a relief – it’s another one of those project that felt like it took forever, though objectively it wasn’t that long. It was waiting in hibernation for a few months, but that’s not quite the same thing as working on it for all… Continue reading Perfect Blend Shawl is Done!
I’m halfway through Clue 3 of my Perfect Blend MKAL, at which point it will be halfway done! Clue 3 is continuing on the theme from clue 2 of alternating an interesting stitch pattern section with a garter stitch section. The stitch patterns are just enough to keep from being boring, while being difficult. Pretty… Continue reading PB Shawl – Almost to the Halfway Point

It’s a boomerang shaped shawl, which is pretty evident right from the start. The… Continue reading Perfect Blend

It was about that time I noticed a problem There’s a pretty noticeable color shift about one and a half pattern repeats before the end of the section. Maybe… Continue reading Sirens to the Frog Pond
So, progress on all fronts! First, I have a FO to show off 🙂 My Hunting for Sasquatch KAL socks are done! The pattern was well written and easy to follow, and the kit was very well done also. The socks fit me, and I have a little yarn left – I’m wondering what to… Continue reading At Long Last, Something is Finished!
Well, it’s time again for the midweek WIP report! Since last week, not a lot has changed. The project I’m working on most is the Hunting Sasquatch sock MKAL. The third and final clue was just sent out today – I’m about halfway through the first clue. Here’s what it looks like so far… … Continue reading Wednesday WIPs
Well, it’s been a kind of a boring week, knitting-wise. As far as everything else, it was a crazy one, so maybe it all balances out! What I mainly did this week was wait. The first thing I’m waiting for is to start the Hunting Sasquatch sock MKAL! By the time the first clue was… Continue reading A Week of Waiting
