Now that things are settling down a little on the knitting front, I’ve got 2 projects going. My skirt continues to progress, and I picked up something I started and put aside this past spring. The skirt is moving along really well! It doesn’t look like much of anything other than static at this point,… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs
Oh, knitting world. Just when I make a firm decision not to buy anything for a while, you you throw something at me I can not resist. This time it was a four-pack of yarn from four different breeds of sheep along with a pattern that will allow you to really try them out. This… Continue reading Breed-Specific Fabulosity
People who are friends with me on Instagram already know about these, so feel free to skip if you have seen them 🙂 I opened the last yarn surprise of my Countdown to Halloween set from Ms. Monster Creations on Saturday. It is a lot of yarn, and I am very happy with all of… Continue reading Last of the Halloween Stash Enhancements
The Haunted socks are moving along. I have maybe an inch and a half to do on the feet, then the heels, then on up the legs until I run out of yarn or get bored with them 🙂 Even though they did not turn out to be self-striping, I do like the slanted stripe/color… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday

I really liked this… Continue reading Stash Enhancement Saturday

Shortly after I started knitting my Buttoned Wrap Skirt this past weekend, I psyched myself into a random yarn panic. I tend to do this to myself sometimes, especially when the yarn I’m using is no longer obtainable. I like to buy remaindered yarn from the closeout section at Webs, so this does happen to… Continue reading Crazy Coincidence
I was too lazy and disorganized last night to post my WIPs pictures, so I miss out on the alliteration. But in any case, here they are! Side 2 of the Shelly Summer top is under way! I’m hoping to be able to focus on it this weekend and make some progress. And the Black… Continue reading Thursday…ThWIPS?
For those of you who are Shark Week inclined, it is coming up! It starts this coming Sunday 8/9 and goes through the week. Jimmy Beans generally puts out some kind of shark week sock kit, which I always get and sometimes even make 🙂 This year they are doing something a little different. Shark… Continue reading Shark Week!
