So, as I was saying, I knit one of Hunter’s Curls a few weeks back. Now, one of the (many!) awesome things about Curls is that you can use just about any yarn, in any weight. The idea is that you choose your needle size to get a fabric whose drape you like, then you […]

FO report

By | January 12, 2015

Remember that swatching I did a few weeks back? For the stole with a bend in it? Well, over the weekend I finished the stole. From the back, it looks like your typical triangle shawl: From the front, it looks more like a ruana: As I’d hoped, the stole sits securely on the wearer’s shoulders, […]

Travel knitting

By | October 28, 2013

Lately it seems I get most of my knitting done while traveling. Case in point: Before Stitches Midwest, knowing that I would need some travel knitting, I cast on these Sidewinder socks. I don’t often knit one of my own designs twice, so this was a treat: No need to scour stitch dictionaries for ideas! […]

Last weekend’s test-run of my new Wedge Shawl Design class went quite well, if I do say so myself. Oh, sure, there was a hiccup or two, and you know I’ll be making improvements to the class based on the feedback I got. But what blew me away was how inspired the students were. Several […]

Goodness, it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged. And today would most likely be another no-blogging day, except I have a tiny case of finishitis. (You know, the complement to startitis. It happens, sometimes.) So let’s play catch-up. • February was a big month for traveling. It started with the Visionary Authors retreat – always […]

Yet another pair of toe socks, finished: They’re much the same as my green pair, except I made yet another departure from Cat Bordhi’s original Sweet Tomato Heel: the first short-row wedge is composed of increasingly shorter rows, while the second is composed of increasingly longer rows. I like the results: In other news, registration […]

A Christmas story

By | December 25, 2012

Years and years ago, Da Hubster started asking questions over dinner one night. “How much yarn do you need to knit a sweater? What do you mean, ‘it depends on the weight of the yarn’? What’s your favorite weight of yarn?” That sort of thing. I was thrilled – he’d never shown much interest in […]

Belated FO report

By | November 28, 2012

A year ago, I had an idea for a scarf. Months ago, I knit the scarf. And I was disappointed: given my limited yarn supply, the scarf ended up narrower than I’d hoped for. And so I neglected to blog about it. (It’s a flimsy excuse, but it’s my excuse, and I’m sticking to it.) […]

More toes

By | November 8, 2012

Grab a cup of tea; this is gonna be a long one. • I’d like to tell you that I finished two pairs of socks in the past few days. Finishing two pairs in quick succession would’ve been a novelty for me, since I normally practice serial monogamy with my knitting projects. But while enjoying […]

Ten toes and three heels

By | September 25, 2012

Secret project out of the way, I was able to return to and finish my “gotta have ’em now” toe socks: I’m thrilled that I pulled this particular skein of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Silkie Socks that Rock out of my stash. The colors just scream “fun!” Which is what you need when your toes […]
