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
My Half the Knit Sky shawl is coming along pretty well! There are about 40 – 50 rows left, though of course they are all long ones 🙂 I am really enjoying this project – just enough variety to keep it interesting, but it’s not insanely complicated.
After a little bit of a false start last week ( I was doing the star trails AND the star stitches wrong), I am making good progress on my Half the Knit Sky shawl 🙂 There is just enough variety to keep it interesting, but it is pretty straightforward knitting. The star stitches were new,… Continue reading Wednesday WIP

I was stuck between a couple of options, and somewhat typically picked two things that weren’t even on the list! I am starting another sweater, the Shelley Summer Top, which I am making out of some yarn that… Continue reading What’s Next?
My Temple of Flora shawl has finally gotten to where it is divided out for the fronts! From here, I knit the front wings, which stay straight down the middle but continue to expand to the sides. Then when those pieces are finished, it gets a collar that has some nifty short row shaping. And… Continue reading Temple of Flora
I spent most of my knitting time yesterday and today working on my SIL’s socks, but will post about that Monday. The other thing I have been making some progress on is my Perfect Blend shawl. It was my lunchtime/desk knitting for a while, but the rows got too long for that, so it came… Continue reading Perfect Blend Progress
The last time I mentioned my Perfect Blend shawl here was late July, but it hasn’t been hibernating. I took it to work and have been doing a bit here and a bit there as I have a minute over lunch. Although it hasn’t been long stretches of time all together, since I started I’ve… Continue reading Perfect Blend: An Odyssey
