I have high hopes for 2011. Here are a few of my goals (best to put them down in writing, don’t you think?): – Create a more peaceful, more joyful home. I’ll be referring to Christine Carter’s book and blog, … Continue reading
I know. It’s been over four months since I last wrote anything here. I know. But there’s a really good reason for that.
Just days after my last post, I found out that I’m having a baby!
I’ve already finished two projects this year! On New Year’s Day I finished a cowl for myself. I started it on Christmas, ripped it out to change needle size, a finished it in a week. Not bad! Alchemist’s Cowl Pattern: … Continue reading
Sorry about the lack of posts! You know how December can be. Thankfully, it’s almost over, and 2009 is about to begin! First, an update on the sweater. In the end, it was too big. But with a little bit … Continue reading
The sweater is complete! Just in time for the 3-6″ of snow they’re forecasting for tonight. I’m exhausted, but very excited. It’s a bit larger than I was going for, and the sleeves are shockingly long (esp. considering I tried … Continue reading
Coming right along on the NaKniSweMo sweater! As of last night I’m almost halfway up the second sleeve. And because of a scheduling snag at work, I’m home early today. That means I’m home when there is sunlight, so I … Continue reading
Oh dear. I didn’t realize it had been so long since I’d posted. I also didn’t realize my progress had slowed quite as much as it has. As of right now, I’m half-way up the first sleeve. Not very impressive, … Continue reading
Whoo-hoo! I have the main body of the sweater done! I can’t believe I’m at this point on November 9th. Tomorrow, if I have time, I’ll start the first sleeve. And I think Dan’s done with that game controller, now … Continue reading
So much for knitting every day in November. Wednesday, I not only skipped my knitting group because I was too tired to face the prospect of leaving the house again, but I also failed to knit a single stitch. My … Continue reading
My sweater is now more than 7 inches long. I’m amazed at how quickly this is going! And I’ve only had to rip out twice, both times because I forgot which pattern round I was working on in the middle. … Continue reading
I cast on for the sweater today! I’m so excited. I knit 2,326 stitches before calling it a night. I have no idea how many stitches are in the entire sweater, though, and I also don’t know if I’ll be … Continue reading
Here it is! Dan’s cabled hat (Ravelry link), from the Irish Hiking Hat pattern, same as Tommy’s from last Christmas. Also, the photo I promised of my new Domo-kun notions bag:
Check it out! My scarf is all blocked and beautiful. And today was actually sunny! So, here are a couple of pictures. A close-up so you can see the great pattern (and the great yarn!). Happy with the result!
I don’t really have a yarn stash. I have a few skeins of yarn sitting around waiting to be knitted, but they’re all assigned to some project or other. And at the moment, all of those projects call for small-diameter … Continue reading
The Everlasting Bagstopper is all knitted! I still need to sew on the handles, but that will have to wait for me to get in touch with my cousin, and for us to then figure out her machine. Anyway, here’s … Continue reading
I have lots of yarn! And I even took pictures of it! I’ve been knitting, a bit, but no pictures of that yet. I’m trying to find a good background for taking pictures against. The music stand seemed like a … Continue reading
My 28th birthday was yesterday [Friday - turns out I forgot to post this after it was written! Whoops!], and I had a wonderful day! I had phone calls from my whole family, including my brother, which meant that I … Continue reading
My poor little blog – I haven’t posted for over a month! And, even worse, before tonight I hadn’t done any knitting since I got home from Dallas. Between being sick twice and being addicted to solving puzzles in Professor … Continue reading
My mom gave me a gift certificate to Unique Yarns, Inc. for Christmas, and today I spent the last of it. I’ve got so much beautiful new yarn! I balled it all up when I got home this evening. First, … Continue reading
