Raining, Pouring

Published by under Blather,wips

It has been a very wet week. I spent it catsitting for friends in Queens, which meant a delightfully shortened commute, but now I am home again and catching up on everything. I did some knitting this week, but it’s secret, so all I can show you is this: 3 down, 7 to go. Soon. […]

Take Me Out

Traveling Sock celebrated Father’s Day by going to the ballpark. It was a beautiful day for a game. Especially when the home team won 6-0. Sorry, Camden. The Long Island Ducks are my favorite baseball team, because they are a semi-pro team that play in a reasonably-sized stadium where you can see what’s happening on […]

The Return of the Traveling Sock

Published by under Blather,Traveling Sock,wips

Traveling Sock took a little trip today. My friend Vhary has been in town this week (in advance of a move out to San Francisco for grad school) and we met up today in the city and wandered around the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, as I had never been there before and Vhary […]

I’m working on a bunch of gift knitting at the moment, but I needed a bit of a break. So I started another project. Startitis? Me? You must be mistaking me for some other knitter. Say hi to my new train knitting, an Ishbel that I am making in Madtosh Merino Light celebration yarn that […]

As Seen On The Internet

Published by under FOs,wips

So you might have heard of my friend Glenna. I knit a lot of her stuff, because her aesthetic and mine have a lot of overlap, and also she’s made of brilliant and awesome and win and whatever else you can think of. As are these gloves. NOUVEAU GLOVES Pattern: Nouveau, by Glenna C [ravelry […]

Sock Rut.

Published by under wips

I have been in a sock rut. I will admit it. I knit Jaywalkers, and 3×1 broken rib socks, and stockinette socks. It gets a little boring sometimes. So when Jen gave me a spectacular skein of Tanis Fiber Arts Blue Label Fingering Weight in Harvest for my birthday, I decided maybe I should shake […]

Four days… …and I have cast off. Fastest shawlette ever, overlooking the part where I knit the mini version and I had a lot of time to knit in the car so of course I’d finish it so quickly. It’s not blocked yet, but I figured I would show it off anyway, because HOMG IT’S […]

Road trip

Published by under Blather,wips

So I am in Vermont, because that is where my sister is. Visiting her is such a trial: This is where we went apple picking. The orchard overlooks Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains. I ate one right off the tree. It was delicious. In the car on the drive up, I started a shawlette: […]

It has been very hot. New York City set a heat record yesterday: 105 degrees Farenheit. (Or, if you speak Celsius, 40 degrees.) Since I am not a summer person, it is, bluntly, hell. So. I cope by hiding in the air conditioning, and I knit socks, because they are nice and small. I finished […]
