I've actually got TWO new Mitered Crosses Squares to share with y'all! I bound off and then wove in the ends of Square Number Five in the car on the way to Ohio a couple of weeks ago and finally took a photo of it this morning: Love those little pops of hot pink! M… Continue reading squares number five and six
Still loving my Mitered Crosses Blanket. Can't get over how pretty the squares are, and how much fun they are to knit. Each square is coming out at a little over 1 foot, and I think they'll each be closer to 13" once I wash/block them. I'm aiming for a 3x4 square blanket, so that'll… Continue reading square number four
Square number three took a bit longer than squares numbers one and two (two weeks instead of one, but given that it's the end-of-semester-crazytimes over here, that's not so bad). I actually did a fair amount of the knitting while my students watched a documentary in my language development class last week! This square was… Continue reading square number three.
I can't stop knitting on my Mitered Crosses Blanket! I've been bringing it with me everywhere, and got some good knitting time on Friday morning while we waited for the Spring Celebration at M's school to get started. As of this morning, I've got another square to add to the pile: Square number two is… Continue reading square number two

I need to… Continue reading square number one.
That's what I'm up to these days. I'm pretty busy with the end-of-semester crunch, plus the research stuff that never ends (not that I mind, I enjoy it quite a lot, which is a good thing seeing as I'll be doing it for the rest of my life, most likely!), so I don't have a… Continue reading plotting and scheming
While I'm still not feeling terribly good, and the ribs are still aching a bit, I am finally feeling up to knitting again! To celebrate, I decided to change my blog up a bit...I wanted a theme that would not cut off the righthand side of all of my images like my old one did,… Continue reading knitting again
When Lolly asks to see our pinks, greens, and yellows, I can't help but oblige. So this morning I took a bunch of pictures of the yarn I'm planning to use for upcoming projects for Project Spectrum. Before I begin, a little disclaimer: y'all might've noticed that I've stalled on the larger projects I've been… Continue reading Pink, green, and yellow
