I finished my little shrug! And I wore it yesterday. I really like it. It’s a funky little sweater. I probably should’ve knit it a size up, but it still fits, despite being a tad snug. You can see the finished project here. I was pretty pleased with the workshop on Craftsy, though I did […]Read More Finished Shrug
Contrary to the results of my poll, I’ve decided to knit a shrug. Keep in mind, though, I am caught up on my small stuff, so it’s time for another garment! A quick-ish shrug seems like a good thing to do, especially since I was accepted in Craftsy’s workshop with Stefanie Japel called “One Skein […]Read More One Skein Shrug Week One
My little poll on the right hand side there seems to point overwhelmingly, though votes were few, to catching up on small stuff. And I have been. Here’s what I’ve caught up on: I’ve finished a baby hammock prop for a friend and fellow photographer, a pair of fingerless mitts for a person from where […]Read More The Small Stuff

Granted, I could only cast on and somehow make a slipknot, but, you have to start somewhere. I can’t believe […]Read More Knit-a-versary
I’m still working on the back panel of the sweater, but I have finished the back shaping and hope to start the raglan edging tonight. Then, on to the sleeves! Otherwise, not a whole lot to report on my progress. I did take another few days off on the weekend and knit a sock in […]Read More Long Lean Sweater: Week 4
