Last week I started knitting the first of a pair of mismatch socks – the (Ravelry link) Stationery Set from Yarn Enabler. I bought this yarn a couple years ago, and I’m glad I did, as I don’t know that the dyer is still in business, though here is the link to her site anyway.… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday: Stationery Set
I started my second SE2SE project this week – the (Ravelry link) Op Tiki scarf/cowl. It’s going well so far! It is a slip stitch pattern, so the fabric is a bit wonky as you can see. From the examples on the pattern page it looks like the wonkiness will partially block out, but not… Continue reading Feelin’ Groovy
I mentioned last week that I had turned some birthday cash into some yarn – it got here today! Two more rare breed skeins complete with Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em stickers, from Shaggy Bear Farms. They were a vendor at this month’s VK Live, and I found them via poking around in the vendor… Continue reading A Few Skeins More
The mohair striped monster is done! It’s folded up here because this thing is massive. It’s longer than I am tall by quite a bit. Granted, I am pretty short, but still. And also it is wide. I tried it on and I have to wear it looped around a couple times to avoid looking… Continue reading Mohair Stripes Done!

Third yarn added! There are fewer rows in this third section, but they are soooooooooo loooooooooonnnnggggg! But it’s moving along reasonably quickly anyway. What are you working on, and how is it going?
After stalling for a good couple of hours, I finally got knitting on the colorwork part of my Bohus starter project, a Blue Shimmer hat. Bohus knitting has a reputation for being somewhat tough to do. It is stranded colorwork like Fair Isle, but you will sometimes have more than two colors you are dealing… Continue reading Blue Shimmer Progress
My Mom is now encouraging me in my rare breed yarn nuttiness, and very kindly gifted me some yarn from the SE2SE list. It is from Florida Cracker sheep, which is an actual breed of sheep even though the name makes it sound like sheep that Florida Man would have 🙂 It was bought from… Continue reading Yes, More SE2SE Yarn
Our KAL started Saturday with a lovely Skype call with Sarah, Kathy and my Mom and I. We all got a lot of our dumpster fire pieces done on our call, and I think we are all close to finished at this point if not done 🙂 So for anyone who is interested in doing… Continue reading 2020 Ornament is Done!
