2009

Published by under monthly wrap-up

2009 was a great year for knitting. I didn’t plan for it to happen, but I knit a sock a month: 12 socks, all for me. The BSG socks (March) were also my first test-knit, an experience that helped me an awful lot as I started designing my own patterns: And I knit beautiful beautiful […]

November Wrap-up

Published by under monthly wrap-up

November’s a strange month for blogging about knitting: Lots of knitting happens that has to stay secret, at least for a few more weeks. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t have things to share: First off, the HOLLY & IVY SCARF & WRAP: which I’m so happy with. I’ve been wearing the scarf everywhere, and […]

October Wrap-Up

August Wrap Up

Published by under monthly wrap-up

August was a slow month. I had lots of things on the needles, and then a ridiculous heat wave hit and all I wanted to do was move to the Yukon. (Summer is colder in the Yukon; you can still knit.) Since I am writing this post instead, you may safely assume I am still […]

July Wrap-Up

Published by under monthly wrap-up

July was a month of traveling hither, thither and yon. I had several professional conferences to visit, so I was bouncing from DC to Chicago back to DC. Lots of time on planes and trains, including a delightful seatmate on Amtrak who decided he would try to use me in lieu of getting an actual […]

June Wrap-up

Published by under monthly wrap-up

What better way to spend my Fourth than in my personal pursuit of happiness — that is to say, with yarn! (Also happiness: engaging in my annual re-watch of 1776, because, really, can it get any better than singing, dancing Founders harmonizing about the amazing powers of Jefferson’s violin playing?
