Hi again! January was great, because I did some actual 'me' knitting for a change! I squeezed it in among my design submission call swatching and whatnot. And I finished a couple things, too! First up: I had these socks on the needles, and had completely forgotten about them until I went looking for my… Continue reading Look – I have actual knitting!
I finally finished the shawl I've been working on for forever. (Well, I finished it a while ago but only just now got around to a blog post about it. oops!) It was my 'downtime' knitting project for when I wasn't working on my own designs and when I needed some knitting with me, so… Continue reading FO Friday: Queen Anne’s Lace shawl
Did you get your copy of Cast On in the mail last week? I have another new pattern in the Spring issue that just came out - a pair of socks, called May Day Flowers Socks. look for them on page 16. I am really pleased with how these came out, and I almost didn't… Continue reading New Pattern: May Day Flowers Socks
I finally have a FO I can show you! I finished this a few weeks ago, but couldn't show you right away since it was a gift. 🙂 Well, my new nephew Cole was born a little over a week ago, and I can show you his blanket now! Pattern: Sweetie Baby Blanket by… Continue reading FO Friday: Baby Blanket

This is the culmination of 7 years of hard work (not consistently - the first 5 were off and on, but the last 2 were pretty much dedicated exclusively to the MK work.) My resubmits should get back to me in the next few… Continue reading My biggest and best FO, EVER
I'm still waiting for my Master Knitter level 3 notebook to come back to me. I figure I still have about 3 or more weeks to go. Waiting is hard, yo. 🙂 I started the Sheherezade shawl - I went with the gold beads. I'm very happy with it so far, and I'm pretty close… Continue reading Still waiting….
So, I dropped my Master Knitter Level 3 box in the mail yesterday!! Now begins the weeks of worrying and waiting to get it back. I've already started worrying - the post office only had a 12x12x5 box for me to use, so I had to squish the sweater and binder down to get the… Continue reading It’s in the mail!
I know I promised you a post on my handling of the steeks on my sweater (I did a sandwiched steek) - but that will have to wait a couple of days. I thought you'd like a sneak peek of the finished sweater first!! She's blocking once more right now, and I'm hoping to get… Continue reading Sneak Peek
So, I'm going to cheat a bit and show you a FO this Wednesday. That's right, I finished my Master Knitter Level 3 hat!! Yipee!! Here it is: It blocked out just how I wanted it to - I wanted a more droopy version of a beret - a slouchy hat. And I wanted an… Continue reading WiP Wednesday
