Shelley Summer Top is done! The color on this is terrible – another terrible indoor late night photo, but it’s done! The color is more true in this previous photo. The pattern is Shelley Summer Top by Nancy Ricci, and the yarn I used is Bamboo Pop in the Brilliant Blues colorway. It was an… Continue reading Friday FO!
Time to take a short break from relentlessly going on about what I’m knitting now by taking a look at what I plan to knit next! Directly next are swatches for this month and next month’s Custom Fit patterns. In looking through my stash, I discovered that I had 2 sweater quantities each of two… Continue reading Next!
My big focus this week was on getting caught up with my Geek-Along squares. Here is what I’ve gotten done: The orange and green one in the upper left is Aquaman, and then going clockwise are Black Panther, Mas y Menos, Red Tornado, and Cyborg. And now I’m all caught up again! I will be… Continue reading A Little More Geekery
This post is really more going to be about recently finished items than WIPs, but it’s a catchy title anyway. These are all the Geek-A-Long squares I’ve gotten done since I last mentioned them. A couple of them got done a week or so ago, and then I hammered (or knitted) out the rest of… Continue reading Wednesday WIP

Then there is also Alice Starmore’s Fair Isle book, along with a number of others. Ultimately though,… Continue reading Norsk Strikkedesign
And here it is – the color reversed version of the Day of the Dead cowl from earlier post fame. And here they are right next to each other for comparison… Using two variegated yarns together puts an interesting spin on colorwork. If I wanted crisper definition of the figures, they would not have been… Continue reading Crazy Backwards World Day of the Dead Cowl
It’s been a little while since I posted last. There are a couple of big projects I’ve been working on – Wink, Waiting for the Rain – but they, and posting, got put on the side for the past week. The design bug bit me again! I had a lovely skein of yarn from my… Continue reading Design of the Time
As it turns out, I didn’t need the mitten project along with me. These socks are taking forever to knit. In the general course of things, I don’t like wearing short socks. Knee length is about where I like them. However, that’s a lot of knitting. A day or so into this past week’s work… Continue reading Recalculating
