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
With the Just Beachy shawl done, I finally got to start the first new shawl of the year and also got back to making a little progress on my Powdermill. Powdermill (Ravelry link) is coming along! I haven’t gotten too far yet, but I’ve been focusing on finishing Just Beachy for the last week. So… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs
After a very long pause, my Just Beachy shawl is finished! Here it is right after I cast off, so not blocked or finished in any way This thing is BIG. So here it is once it was blocked. My Mom very kindly wove the ends in for me, and in exchange I started a… Continue reading Just Beachy is Done!
It’s been a while again since I posted last – I keep meaning to post much more regularly but life is getting away from me right now. Oh well, I’ll just keep trying!

Section 2 (not visible in this photo) is a… Continue reading Vertices Unite Progress

The pattern is Lustrous Shawl by Noma Ndlovu, and… Continue reading Finally an FO
My Mom’s Odyssey shawl is moving along pretty nicely. Done with the first yarn and into the second. It will definitely need some good blocking, as the lace sections make it pretty scrunched up. However, it is knitting up very cushy and warm. The first section was Leicester Longwool, the second is Jacob. The Leicester… Continue reading Odyssey Progress
I got this finished yesterday and blocked overnight. It turned out just lovely! I was hoping for a sunny day for good photos, but it was a pretty cloudy day out, so this is the best light available. Which I guess is appropriate for this shawl, though we didn’t get any rainbows today. Anchorage skies… Continue reading Oregon Sky Done!
Nothing finished to report today. I made some progress on my skirt, but it doesn’t look much different. The lace panel I was working on in my Oregon Sky is done, and am just making a start on the next rainbow band Tomorrow should be a mostly lazy day – hopefully more to report tomorrow… Continue reading No FO
