I took a VK Live class this morning on a technique I have been looking into for a while. It doesn’t seem to have a formal name, though the teacher of this class called it the double-pass technique. Essentially, you are working with two colors of yarn, and instead of working two rows (back and… Continue reading Double-Pass Technique
I’m off of sleeve island! I finished the second sleeve this evening and even got a little bit of a start with the collar. As usual, please excuse the terrible indoor nighttime photography 🙂 What are you working on these days, and how is it going?
Having had such a good time at the last yarn tasting I participated in, I went poking around for some more and found out that Berroco also has one going right now. Our kits arrived in short order, and we got into them! The top two yarns are Remix Light and Summer Sesame, the middle… Continue reading Yarn Tasting #2

She showed all the patterns… Continue reading Yarn Tasting!

These two sets of three skeins each were gotten to make Float and Sprout – two newish patterns using the newish assigned pooling technique. I’m hoping to get to these later this… Continue reading It’s Raining Yarn
For those of you who were curious – you know you were! – this month’s Confident Knitting project is a cowl, and the technique is blocking.
I only have one active project right now, my Throwback cardigan, which I will write about tomorrow. But I’m about to have two more going a little later this week! On Thursday we will get the second Confident Knitting project. What type of project is it? Who is the designer? What is the technique? We… Continue reading Come On, April!
