The Colours, Duke!

      No Comments on The Colours, Duke!

I just got get started in on my next cake of wool for blanket squares, woo hoo. I decided to go for the rainbow because it will be more fun to work, and because it was the one that was easiest to get to. I don’t know how many I will or won’t get done today, but at least I’ve… Read more »

Grandad Conehands

      No Comments on Grandad Conehands

We, the six of us, went out for a family meal this evening. The girls were well-behaved (as always), and Granddad solicitously offered to help them eat their desserts. So they both gave him their cones, and focused on their ice cream. I don’t know know if he was amused that they took him at his word… I know I… Read more »

Setting In

      No Comments on Setting In

Today’s knitting is… sewing. And then more sewing. I got halfway around on the first sleeve and had to rip it out because it looked horrible. And it looked horrible because I always think that I remember how to set in sleeves without checking (hint: I really don’t xD). I’m making pretty good headway on the second sleeve, so hopefully… Read more »

Round and Round

      No Comments on Round and Round

I managed to slog through the pain in the ass of picking up stitches last night. I’m probably only another row or two off of doing the amount I need before I can cast off and move on to other things, so that’s hooray. I don’t know if I am going to get stuck into the shoulder seams today, but… Read more »

The Worst Part of Knitting…

      No Comments on The Worst Part of Knitting…

… is picking up stitches. I pulled my knitting out of my bag for the first time since I was out Wednesday, and finished the last few rows on the second sleeve. Which means now I am doing math and picking up stitches, which is… tedious. To say the least. Still, at least it’s nearing completion! I don’t think that… Read more »

Hard at Work

      No Comments on Hard at Work

Actually, that sort of wasn’t true. I didn’t really do any work-work, and was easily swayed away from it by Z (and the fact Littler decided I was furniture for long stretches). I hopefully will get some of the things done tomorrow, but the main thing will be having a proper bath before going out tomorrow night and having to… Read more »

I Earned This Coffee

      No Comments on I Earned This Coffee

Today, I celebrate my first sale, woo! Granted, it was a custom request that predated me setting up the store, but it also is kind of the thing that nudged me into doing it. Tippy wanted to pay me what my efforts were worth, and I guess I needed that bit of validation to take a big step and *try*… Read more »

Masochist, Me

      No Comments on Masochist, Me

I’m probably making a terrible, hilarious mistake, but I went ahead and set up an Etsy shop. I don’t think I’m going to make much money off of it, but that isn’t really the point. The point is that I REALLY want to make lots of stitch markers, and I can only give so many to friends before I run… Read more »

No Looking Back

      No Comments on No Looking Back

Okay, this is me attempting to come up with something clever that looks like it goes with the picture I took, but I’m stretching it a bit thin. Mainly, I wanted to show off my wad of hair wrapped around a tiny stick, as well as the top I’m currently wearing. It’s one of my handknits, and was done in… Read more »

Made With Love

      No Comments on Made With Love

I’ve had a hankering this past week to wear my various hand knits. I made myself so many goodies something like two years ago, and then I’ve barely touched them. So I’m making a point to do it now. I’m currently wearing my Nesoi tee, which is lovely and light, and just the right level of extra warmth I need… Read more »
