First, a project that is going well – Half the Knit Sky progress I have the 6 rows of edging, binding off, and blocking, and it’s done! Next, a project going not so well – Black Hole Socks So, I have to start them again. I miscalculated on the stitch count, and they were just… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs!
I have 4 rows of garter stitch to do yet to finish this clue, but I think that’s pretty darn close to finished, so here’s how it’s going… Casapinka switched things up a little bit this week by adding some texture pattern rows between the garter sections.

Well, the past week has seen some knitting-related progress! First, I finished the sweater I have been working on – Oddrun, designed by Elsebeth Lavold. I am pretty happy with how it got… It’s a nice pattern, some shaping, a little bit of cabling, but nothing too crazy. There is also the option to make… Continue reading What’s on the Needles Now?
