Finished Objects!

It's been a while since I had any of these, isn't it?First up, I made another Charlotte. For this one, I used a different yarn and a smaller needle size for a slightly different fit. These photos were taken before blocking. Once it's dry, I'll get some nicer pics that I can add to the… Continue reading Finished Objects!

What I Made on My Day Off

That would be the top portion of a quilt, made from my old work shirts. The patterned material is from my favorite pillow sham which met an untimely death.Somehow, I wound up with exactly the right number of blocks. No leftovers, none missing. When I get more fabric, I'll add to it (this is about… Continue reading What I Made on My Day Off

Remember this?It's the sweater that never ends: London Calling.For those keeping track, this would be my fourth year of working on it. Last year, if you recall, I discovered that the cables on the decreases of the shoulders did not line up, so I started over and decided to make the entire thing seamless (or… Continue reading It’s That Time of Year Again

UFO Sightings

I made a few small dents in the UnFinished Object bin over the weekend. On Friday, I cast off the dish mat that I started just before we moved into our current house--back in November, I think.

Odds and Ends

I usually try to keep no more than 3 active knitting projects going at any one time, since that seems to be the limit of my attention span.My nook cover--which you'll hear a lot more about once it's done--is on hold at… Continue reading Odds and Ends

Finally Finished!

Some knitters can knock out  a pair of socks in a week or two.According to Ravelry, these socks have been on the needles for about two months. I like to knit socks. I really do.

4KCBWDAY3 Infographic

Today's prompt is to create an infographic describing something in your knitting. For mine, I plugged a couple of numbers into Excel and hit "insert pie chart".I went through my project page on Ravelry to get the numbers, though I suspect they are slightly skewed. I have a bad habit of not adding things to… Continue reading 4KCBWDAY3 Infographic
