unfinished objects

Well now.

I would say that I’ve been really busy and that’s why I neglected to update over the weekend, but… that would only be half true, I guess. I did photograph the progress on my IĆ°unn sweater on Saturday and there’s been a lot of progress. I got this far and […]

FO: Urchin Hat

For whatever reason, while taking pictures of my Urchin, I made the dumbest faces. And of course, felt the need to share them with all of you. Stupid faces aside, this is probably my new favorite hat. It’s Ysolda Teague’s clever Urchin hat, from Knitty Fall 2007. Constructed entirely in […]

A diversion

I’ve been avoiding knitting lately. I’m just sort of burned out and don’t want to do it. Luckily, I had concocted a plan last year and was finally able to put it into action. I decided last year that I was going to crochet a blanket for myself as a […]

Sweaterday: The Home Stretch

Miss Vivian, as I have taken to calling my sweater (in my head, that is; this is the first time I’ve referred to her as such “out loud”), is very nearly complete… ish. Both sleeves are done, and last night I joined them with the body and started working on […]

Settling in

I am settling into my parents’ house in Florida (where it is most annoyingly in the 70s; Colorado’s been hit with yet another snow storm, so I gave up my White Christmas afterall). The journey here was incredibly annoying though not nearly as bad as it could have been. My […]

Gold rush

I’ve mentioned before how excited I am for the arrival of my first “real” Fall. It’s really starting to hit up here. Any tree that isn’t an evergreen is turning some shade of yellow-green, gold, orange, or red. My parents were in town this past weekend for a visit, and […]

Pattern Overload

You know that phrase, “my eyes were bigger than my stomach?” I’m pretty sure my eyes are bigger than my hands, so to speak. Maybe I should say “my knitting needles.” I feel like I have a million projects to do, and I’m looking forward so very, very much to […]

Sunny days are here, for now

I believe that, if it doesn’t rain between now and the nighttime, we will have gone 48 hours without any rain whatsoever. Apparently, I’m feeling inspired by all the sunshine. Is it silly to want to buy these buttons and then find the perfect matching yellow yarn to knit a […]

Last minute

I leave tomorrow morning for Colorado, and I am so excited. I get to see a couple of friends that I don’t see regularly (you know, that whole “they live in Colorado” thing), I get to see mountains (seriously, the flatness of Florida is underwhelming), and I have an opportunity […]

Public reaction

Last Thursday, I was sitting in a bookstore cafe waiting for some of my knitterly friends to arrive, working on my Hedera socks and flipping through the latest issue of Interweave Crochet. A woman came up and asked if I was learning to knit. I explained that no, I’ve been […]
