And these still represent the entirety of my handknit sock collection. Yep, I finished exactly zero socks this Socktoberfest. Not even the Single Sock (the Tabi Sock, that is) that was supposed to be done in time to put in the mail tomorrow. I'll finish it pretty soon after that, but tomorrow? Not so much.… Continue reading Socktoberfest is over…
(Picture of adorable sleeping Stimpy, to distract you from the fact that there are no knitting pictures in this post) You know, I might actually finish things every now and then if I stopped constantly getting distracted by new, bright shiny things every ten seconds. But...y'all, the new Interweave preview is up. And wow. I… Continue reading dreams, dreams
I braved daylight for a bit, just so that I could bring pictures to y'all, my dear readers. No, I haven't become a vampire (though that would be quite seasonally appropriate, no?), but rather am nursing a migraine. At this point I think the "worst" is over (if you're a fellow migraine sufferer, I'm sure… Continue reading into the light
Proof that I do still knit! (I'm turning the heel on my Tabi Sock in the picture). And that I am ridiculously pale. And that my cat likes to watch me knit, probably because he wants to steal and eat the yarn. And yes, I know it looks like I have a monkey growing out… Continue reading c’est la vie
Still flailing madly, trying to keep up with all my work alongside illness, but I thought I'd make a little post to show off my whopping sock progress (ahem, that would be sarcasm, as will become obvious once y'all see what I've actually accomplished). What you see above is my progress on the Tabi sock,… Continue reading Sunday Sock Update
Oy. Y'all, I am so ready to just collapse into a heap of exhaustion and hurtiness. I'm so busy with classes and research that I barely have time for anything else, and I'm being told that the pain that's gotten a lot worse since I started getting really sick this past spring is probably a… Continue reading I wish I had 8 arms…
Yeah, it's Socktoberfest, but there's more than just socks on my needles. My poor non-sock projects just haven't gotten much blog-love lately! The picture up top is my progress on my dad's Escheresque mittens...about 1 inch of cuff. It doesn't look like much, but remember, it's 104 stitches on 00 dpns, so it's rather slow… Continue reading things that are not socks
What little there was of the Tabi sock when this photo was taken earlier today is no more. It's better I noticed this now, than after knitting a whole sock, but...my cast-on is way too tight on this sock. You can probably even tell in that picture with the way the lace is pulling in… Continue reading help!
Yeah, I know, we're already 5 days into Socktoberfest. But this is the first chance I've had to pull myself out of the pile o' work, and show off my pile 'o happy, bright socks. Before I start rambling about my plans for this month, how about a little retrospective? Here all all 7 pairs… Continue reading socktoberfest!
