Not as much going on this week on the knitting front – I haven’t touched my Powdermill this week, though I really should. I have been keeping up on the Celtic Mist MKAL. Here are clues 3 and 4 We are halfway done! So far each of the clues has been pretty reasonable, though the… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs
It’s been a wild couple of days, but I have managed to get some knitting in 🙂 First, my current longest running WIP, Powdermill (Ravelry link). I do keep getting distracted away from this one. So I’ve basically decided that I’m going to treat it like a marathon and not a sprint. It will get… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs
For a change I’ve got three projects on the go right now! Powdermill is moving right along! It’s one of those fun knits that looks much more complicated than it is. I am enjoying this one a lot, though it may wind up in hibernation for the next month or so because I have way… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs

I’ll be stalking the shop’s Facebook and Instagram, but sadly it won’t be my local anymore. However, I’m in luck,… Continue reading Knitty Gritty – New LYS!

Just interesting enough to not be boring, but not too complex. I’m on the decrease side of this first part of my Ocean Sunset shawl. After I’m finished decreasing, I… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs!

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! In the meantime, I now have TWO WIPs on my needles! Almost back up to normal count but not quite there yet.… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs
My cardigan is finally done!! Patten is Drops 106-11 Jacket with Shawl Collar. (Ravelry link) The yarn is Tivoli Collezione S. Charles (?) 52% silk and 48% kid mohair, so it is beautifully drapey. It was just plain white, but Alissa of Headknits custom dyed it for me. She used a very cool technique that… Continue reading Saturday Sweaterday!
