We Interrupt This Hiatus

Published by under FOs

Tour de Spectator

Published by under FOs

I spent my holiday visiting Melissa, who is doing the Tour de Fleece and spent every night spinning while I indoctrinated her in the wonder that is Orphan Black. I do not own a spinning wheel, and I’m not much of a spinner, so I’m calling myself a spectator: (I did not spin that all […]

We interrupt this hiatus…

Published by under FOs

So it’s been a while. I might have fallen a little behind on the knitblogging. Like, a year and a half behind. I’m not even going to try to catch up. I have declared knitblogging amnesty, because life is insanely busy and there’s no way I could even try. But I have just moved into […]

Shower the people

I have something very exciting to report. (At last!) I have finished a secret project! Some of you may remember from last summer when I got my supplies: Let me back up a little. My sister Becky is getting married this year. (I’m still kind of in shock that we’re old enough to be getting […]

Shawls for Smiles

Published by under Blather,FOs

So you might remember a few posts back I talked about spending the day with my friend Vhary. We went to St John the Divine and had lunch and went yarn shopping, and Vhary asked me if I would knit her something if she got herself some yarn. Well, why not? Especially when Vhary has […]

Catching Up

Published by under Blather,FOs,Stash

I’ve been really busy. I started a new job, which means a new commuting route: So there is more train knitting. I bought some yarn too: Isn’t that luscious? I’m still trying to decide what I want to do with it. And I made my sister a shawl for her birthday: This is the Pinkerton […]

It snowed a lot yesterday. That is across the street from my house. Convenient street sign is provided for scale. We got about sixteen inches. On top of the foot or so that was lingering from the last three storms. Despite my growing desire for a solid week of, say, fifty-degree weather, it’s really lovely […]

Old Mr Kringle, he’s soon gonna jingle…

Published by under FOs,Traveling Sock

So I have had to prioritize a great deal this month. Basically? Christmas knitting won over everything else. (Well, that and baking. There was a lot of baking, too.) I also purchased gifts, like this one: That would be Traveling Sock, waiting with me on line to get Ina Garten to autograph her new cookbook […]

Look, internet! I have a new pattern to show you! ESPRESSO SHOT SCARF This scarf grew out of having a skein of J. Knits Supersock Me in last year’s exclusive Rhinebeck colorway and wanting to show it off. I was having visions of stacked eyelets, and then I had a wonderful, terrible idea: knit lengthwise. […]

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 […]
