Hi again! Have you gotten the newest issue of Knitscene? Well, you should! It's a fantastic issue! But, on top of that - I have a pattern in it!! Check out my 'Noctilucent Shawl' on page 49. It's a bottom up 2 color shawl. Shawl begins with a ruffled bottom, and then moves into 2… Continue reading Noctilucent Shawl

I'm still waiting on the mailman to bring me my Master Knitter Level 2 binder. It's been over 7 weeks since I mailed it in, now. I'm holding out hope that it's a good thing it's taking so long - maybe that means I'll have less re-work to do? That's what I'm telling myself anyway.… Continue reading WiP Wednesday
I've been knitting like the wind on my Celestarium this week. I'm at the last increase row between the E charts and the F charts! Yay!? Just 55 rows with 576 stitches each left! (Plus the edging.) o.O The yarn has been leaving blue dye on my hands like crazy. I really hope it doesn't… Continue reading WiP Wednesday
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've decided that my one button band (the seed stitch one) needs to be redone, because the first buttonhole (OF COURSE it was the first one!) disrupts the seed stitch pattern where it shouldn't. And I didn't notice it until a day or two ago. HOW did I not see that?? Anyhow - that will… Continue reading Master Knitter Monday, and WiPs.
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!
