I am seriously on a roll with the yoked sweaters...I just finished another one last night. And I love it. Here it is: Ravelry Project Page Pattern: my modified version of Jared Flood's "Cobblestone Pullover" Yarn: Fleece Artist BFL Aran, in a blue colorway, just slightly over 2 skeins (the leftovers from the third are… Continue reading and another!
Not a sweater, this time, though. Remember how I used to knit socks? Well, I finally finished a pair: Pattern: A hybrid of what I remembered from the "Giotto" cuff pattern, and the Yarn Harlot's "Basic Sock Recipe" Yarn: Fly Designs Lace Wing Sock, in "Petrol". Way less than one skein. Needles: Size 1 Knitpicks… Continue reading another week, another FO
Well, this was quite a week. Between the inauguration and some of the other news we received this week (don't worry, at least, not yet...things are still ok, they just might not be, at some point, depending on factors beyond our control), it's been quite a rollercoaster of highs and lows. C'est la vie, I… Continue reading new(s)
(or, um, it was when I started this post. But then I got tired and went to bed. And now it's Saturday. Amazing!) First of all, thanks SO MUCH to everyone who's commented on Cobblestone and Demi. I'm doing my best to reply to comments, but thanks to classes, I'm sort of at my limit,… Continue reading thank goodness it’s friday

The yarn for the Modified Cobblestone yoke, that is: I love how bright and happy that green is. It didn't take long for me to start knitting the yoke: I love it. The decrease round doesn't look quite so messy in real life as it does in that photo, I'm not sure what's up with… Continue reading It came!
This is where my Modified Cobblestone Pullover currently stands (which is really where it's stood for the past couple of days...the yarn is so lovely and knitting round and round so addicting that this has knit up very fast!). The three little balls of yarn at the top are what's left after knitting the body… Continue reading one yoke short of a sweater
Ah, I've always been fond of the "In Which..." sort of title, it reminds me of Winnie the Pooh (my favorite book, as a kid, and one which I've been collecting in a bunch of languages, because I really enjoy playing with translated children's books). On weather: We're having some absolutely gorgeous weather right now… Continue reading In Which we discuss weather, weight, a new sweater, and a “blogday”
