Hi all! I have a new pattern out! Zick Zack Fingerless Mitts . These were released in the newest issue of Cast On magazine. I had a lot of fun designing them! The fabric on these is nice and dense, which should come in handy when the temps start to drop (hopefully we'll get cooler… Continue reading FO and a new Pattern!
So, I've been killing time as best I can while waiting for my Master Knitter Level 2 binder to come back to me. The waiting is the hardest part, I think! What will I have to re-do? Is my vest up to snuff? Did my sock pass? ... and so on and so forth. BUT,… Continue reading WiPs, a FO, and an Interview!
...my Master Knitter Level 2 submission results! It's been about 3 weeks now, so I have about 3 to 5 weeks wait left. I've been trying to keep my mind off of it as best as I can. I started a lace shawl right away, and I finished it about a week ago: Pattern: Swallowtail… Continue reading Anxiously Awaiting
Sorry for being MIA for so long! I've been busy, busy with house remodeling (it's done now!) and holiday goings on, and getting back into the homeschool swing. I actually have a couple of things to show you today! First, I finished my Spectra: Pattern: Spectra by Stephen West Yarn: Knit Picks Capretta in Platinum… Continue reading FO Friday

I promised to show you some spinning, and here it is! I participated in the Tour de Fleece this year (you challenge yourself in some way with spinning while the Tour de France is going on) and my only goal was to spin some every day - and I (mostly) met the goal. I took… Continue reading FO Friday
Wow, has it really been since May that I posted last?? I've still been reading, but I've slowly been picking up knitting steam. I'd better have lots of steam ready for Friday, because I'm going to be participating in the Ravellenic Games! I'm planning on doing a Venezia sweater, but with some modifications. I'm going… Continue reading Still a bad blogger, evidently!
So sorry to have not posted in so long, but I haven't had much knitting-wise going on. My knitting needles are in a bit of a funk. I do have a couple of things on the needles, but I'm not excited about them for some reason. And I finished a crochet afghan that I'll… Continue reading Bad Blogger!
