First off, I never took a picture of the finished sweater without me in it, so here's that: So, the neckline. The pattern (which is knit from the bottom of the front, over the top of the shoulders to the bottom of the back; I don't want to give too many more details out of… Continue reading Syncopated Ribs neckline modifications
Well, the weather did not oblige me, and decided to be stormy today despite my desire to go up to the beach to take pictures of my newest handknit sweater. Oh well. I made the best of things, and settled on our still-pretty (if crazily overgrown) backyard for the purpose of photographing myself wearing it:… Continue reading Syncopated Ribs!
I am feeling slightly less like death-on-a-stick than I was the last time I posted, thanks to spending most of this week in bed. Not the most exciting thing I've ever done, but it was worth it for the sake of not getting even sicker. And hey, I did some knitting, while I was at… Continue reading better

I've only got a few more inches left to knit down… Continue reading I’m back (sort of)
This particular period of Project Spectrum is so up my alley. I'm an earth-tones sort of girl, I've been an environmentalist since before I even knew the word, and now I've even got a garden where I can literally play in the dirt. There's no way on earth I could knit all of the potential… Continue reading earthy sweaters
It is very strange, not having the shawl to knit on anymore. My hands are literally feeling lost and confused without their daily dose of yarnovers and decreases. I have never been so single-mindedly focused on a particular project for that long. The last couple days, I just haven't known what to do with myself...so… Continue reading what now?
