The knitting part is done! It will probably get blocked tomorrow night, then there’s just the pattern and photo stuff. Whew! I was looking at this one next to the two others of this design I have knitted, and I’m pretty happy with it. The pattern should have lots of options and flexibility, and directions… Continue reading Home Stretch
…and yet so far! I’m on the last mini-skein, and have maybe two more repetitions of the feather and fan wave section to go. Then casting off and blocking, and I am DONE with this pattern! Except for writing it out and getting pictures and publishing it. But other than that, I am done. I… Continue reading So Close
Forest Weave and v3 of my crescent shawl design are moving along reasonably well. There’s nothing much new to say about them, and honestly I’m at the stage where I’m tired of thinking about them. So today I spent some time getting ready for my next two projects! This month’s Boost Your Knitting project went… Continue reading Next Projects
I got a good start on my last run-through of my new crescent shawl design. The first 2 versions used 100 yds each of 4 colors – 1 beaded, the other not. I wanted to try a version with 5 smaller miniskeins of a more average size. When the directions are finished, I should have… Continue reading Crescent Shawl Design – Last Version, I Swear

This has been a satisfyingly yarny weekend! I did have some errands to run and chores to do, but in amongst all that, I did get to do a lot of knitting 🙂 I did get some done on Forest Weave, but it really doesn’t look any different than it did before. There’s a bit… Continue reading Very Yarny Weekend
Section 2 of the beaded version of my new shawl design (NSD) is done, and moving into section 3! The pattern and beading should stand out a bit more after blocking 🙂 The yarn and beads for section 3… Hoping to get through section 3 by Friday, then I plan to get back at Forest… Continue reading More Beads
I finished the beaded version of new shawl section 1 of earlier post fame, in the originally intended color yarn 🙂 It’s pretty sparkly in the light, which I’m having trouble capturing. I’m juggling three projects now instead of just two, so it’s all moving a bit slower. However, the hat is a pretty small… Continue reading Now With Beads On!
I got a lot of knitting time in this weekend, in between chores and errands and just plain goofing off. Am about 3/4 done with the front of my Forest Weave. Just part of a pattern repeat to finish, then binding off and on to the back! It will open out quite a bit when… Continue reading Progress Report
