Oh my goodness, seaming weaving in the ends on this sweater took forever. I got the first sleeve set in and seamed yesterday, but that was it...I had to spend a lot of time fighting with the programming language we program our eyetracking experiments in yesterday at the office, and was too tired by the… Continue reading Mom’s Rogue is DONE!
Yesterday we wound up having to get our car towed to the shop for repairs that wound up costing more money than I actually had in my bank account (a HUGE thank-you to my mother, for giving us a hand with the costs!). Basically, our car is 12 years old and still had quite a… Continue reading even cats love Nancie Wiseman
Your sleeves are done! I'm a bit sleepy, so this isn't going to be much of a blog post, but I just bound off the sleeves after a little marathon of knitting this evening, and took some (very bad) pictures just to show you: Ren (one of our two orange tabby brothers (the other being… Continue reading look, mom!
...or at least, parts of them. My mom asked me the other day whether she had sleeves yet, so I figured I ought to post a picture of my progress on them so she can see where they stand. I've knit 59 rows so far (recording this number here, given my notoreity for forgetting where… Continue reading And now we have sleeves…
After finishing my Ganomy hat, I made a little promise to myself, to finish the hood of my mother's Rogue sweater before starting any other projects. I made good on my promise, but goodness gracious, I'd forgotten about how that hood goes on for-freaking-ever! When I knit my own, I'd done over 1/3 of it,… Continue reading Mom’s Rogue: Now, with hood!
Ok, so I'm a few days late with that one. But I've been taking a bit of a blog-break (both here and elsewhere) while I'm on vacation, mostly because I feel a bit rude taking time out of what little I have for visiting family to sit and write blog posts. But, speaking of family,… Continue reading Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had a quiet one, with one of my friends from my graduate program coming over for a vegetarian thanksgiving with my husband and me. The food was all lovely, except for my somewhat-failed attempt at a lentil loaf. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good, either. Just… Continue reading thankful
I figured out how to set in sleeves (it wasn't as hard as I thought, but it was very time consuming, and not nearly so fun as knitting!), and finished the first sleeve yesterday, and the second one today. So now, here's some photographic evidence that this lovely sweater is now a Finished Object! Here's… Continue reading Almost a year in the making
I started your sweater! Back when I was first knitting Rogue, almost a year ago at this point, I took it up with me to MN when I went home for a holiday visit. She really liked the pattern, and I told her I'd knit her one, as long as she bought the yarn. I… Continue reading look, mom!
Yesterday we ran a few errands, and one of the items that was picked up during said errands was a bottle of Eucalan. We stopped by a yarn shop that was nearish our errand destinations, and I apparently was the lucky winner, since this was their last bottle of the good stuff. (As a side… Continue reading block party!
Well, the knitting of said stuff, at least...but not the finishing. Since my last post, I've completed two projects, both of which have been on the needles a ridiculously long time. The first of these was the scarf I've been knitting for my dear friend Wyl (who blogs over at Carriage Return; the first mention… Continue reading Holy crap, I finished stuff!
I've been away from the blog for awhile again; there were still homeworks and readings backed up from midterms to catch up on, and I've been busy since Tuesday doing a mix of celebrating the Democratic successes in this election (hooray for hope! hooray for real oversight!) and mourning the addition of several more states… Continue reading progress
In my last post, I promised I'd take photos of my various projects, and I've made good on that promise. First off, we have the Candy Corn Socks, which are almost ready for me to begin toe decreases: I'm knitting the sock for my smaller foot first, in part because I want to be able… Continue reading Photographic evidence of my knitting progress
I mentioned in an earlier post that I thought some of Lolly's knitalong frenzy had worn off on me, right? Well, here's a little post to gather together the various knitalong-type-things I'm planning to participate in this fall: Socktoberfest officially began today, and my Candy Corn sock is nearly ready to begin toe shaping. I… Continue reading Socktoberfest (officially) begins; and I join several other knitalongs
Last night I finished the chart for the sleeves on Rogue, so from here on out, it's all stockinette. I'm not sure whether this will slow down or speed up my progress; cables tend to make me want to keep knitting "just one more row", so that I can see what it will look like,… Continue reading All stockinette from here on out
