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!
Forgive me for not posting in a while - we've had a lot going on in our family over the last couple weeks.

Look what my husband got me for Valentine's Day! (Or rather, he told me to go ahead and order it for Valentine's Day!) 🙂 She's a Majacraft Rose. I don't have a name for her yet, but I've got a few ideas kicking around in my head, so she'll probably have a name very soon.… Continue reading Happy Valentine’s Day! (a bit early)
I don't have any FOs to show you today. And I forgot to do my WiP Wednesday post. So today we shall have WiP Friday!! 🙂 I have lots to show you today. All socks. I'm not sure what has happened to me. I was really into socks a couple of years ago, and then… Continue reading WiP Friday?
I meant to show you these on Friday, but I got sidetracked and never wrote up the post!! So... I'll show them to you today. 🙂 I finished another pair of socks: Pattern: improvised - (a basic cuff-down 64 stitch sock with short row heels) Yarn: Collinette Jitterbug in colorway Gauguin, with colorway Velvet Plum… Continue reading More socks!
I've been working on socks a lot lately, since they're small and portable - my boys are in art classes one day a week now, and their ages are such that, of course, they can't be in the same class, so I have to sit for 2 hours straight each week - perfect time to knit! … Continue reading WiP Wednesday
