I am plugging away on my Vitamin D Cardigan - I am now at the bottom sets of radial increases. I most likely won't get a chance to finish it before my current design-in-progress yarn arrives. But I'll knit on it here and there I'm sure. Maybe, just maybe, I'll have it done in time… Continue reading WiP Wednesday 8/22/18
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!
I've been plugging away on my Master Knitter vest and report. I have my outline for the report done, I just need to start actually writing it. And the vest is fairly well planned out and the front is more than halfway done. But I'm worrying about my knit stitch prior to my cable panel.… Continue reading Slow Progress
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.
I've had Level 2 instructions in my hands since 2009. And now 2012 is almost over. That's pitiful!! Well, since I've dawdled a bit too long, of course a new version of the instructions came out about a week ago. More than just a few typos were fixed in this revision! The biggest change is… Continue reading Masters Monday – Lots of swatches!!
I've gotten quite a bit done on the Master Knitter front! I have several swatches to show you today: I'm not sure that swatch #12 is good enough - I'm seeing a bit of wonky stitches in there, although it looks more prominent in the photo than in real life. And I may need to… Continue reading WiP Wednesday
I'm still chugging away - I do have a new sweater to show you, but it's blocking at the moment, so I'm going to wait to show it to you until it's all dry and I can model it for you. It's the Girl Friday sweater I had started way back when - all it… Continue reading Still here…
So, the Olympic Games came to a close last night - and so did the Ravellenic Games! The Olympics were fantastic, and I will have so many good memories from these games! I barely squeaked by the finish line with my sweater: It still needs some finishing touches, though, so it's not technically 'finished', but… Continue reading Ravellenic Games – The End!
I started the right sleeve yesterday! Remember yesterday when I showed you that I did my v-neck decreases the wrong way?Well, I caved and went ahead and fixed the v-neck decreases. I didn't account for the stickiness of the wool yarn, which made it much easier to accomplish that I was expecting! It only took… Continue reading Ravellenic Games Update #6
