At the Finish

I finished the Right Round Scarf on Monday (March 1st), and IMMEDIATELY launched into the worsted cowl version! Which I finished up Friday. While winters are generally pretty mild at my Mid-Atlantic location, some days are beastly between the bitter cold and the biting wind. No amount of scarf coverage will block the wind, itContinue reading “At the Finish”

Year of Projects: Week 27

I’ve been working almost exclusively on the “Right Round” Project. I am currently about 55% of the way through the project and I love it more every day! The fingering weight yarn and size 3 needles are not particularly quick, but the project is really great. I’m already planning a cowl version AND a “windscreen”-cowlContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 27”

#YarniaPix2021 Recap

I decided to participate in a January Photo Challenge, which tagged #YarniaPix2021, on Instagram starting the first of the month. It really inspired me to wear my FOs! On Instagram, I listed the pattern, designer, yarn and colorway where applicable there too. In case you don’t use Instagram, I’ve made a gallery of most ofContinue reading “#YarniaPix2021 Recap”

Baby, Take a Break.

A number of connotations in the title, this being Friday, the 8th of January, 2021 and all. First, I need a break from the news cycle. The insurrection of the 6th is still being processed in my mind; I have a lot of feelings right now. None of them are sympathetic to the perpetrators terrorizingContinue reading “Baby, Take a Break.”

Year of Projects: Week 11

This week felt like I got no crafting done. I barely made a dent in my new round of masks. There was only chaos (cables) on the needles. The pattern is approaching testing stage (I need to add the simple chart)! With Halloween events, my littlest’s Birthday, and my parents coming up for 24 hours,Continue reading “Year of Projects: Week 11”

Year of Projects: Week 10

We had a family adventure at Dinosaur Land this morning. It was damp, dreary, and quite chilly out. But the dinosaurs didn’t seem to mind. There were some other people around, but everyone did a good job of social distancing AND mask wearing. I was able to get a couple fun outdoors pictures of someContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 10”

More Chaos (Cables)

After finishing up 2 projects (totaling 5 items) last week I did the obvious, I started another. Honestly there are about 10 projects I wanted to start but I exercised some restraint instead. This is the small version of the Chaos Cables pattern I’m designing. I wanted to get at least 2 of the anticipatedContinue reading “More Chaos (Cables)”

Year of Projects: Week 7

A FINISH, FINALLY!! My Chaos Cables is COMPLETE. I know I’m yelling. It’s pretty exciting stuff. We’ve had some unseasonably chilly weather, so I’ve been wearing it inside to keep me toasty. Spouse joked that it looks like a knit straight jacket if I pull it down over my arms… He isn’t wrong. I tookContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 7”
