This week has brought finishing, blocking, and a second sock! Scroll down for a gallery of pics!
My brain. So I have 7 patterns in various states of written. A TON that I need to make a reality. I said to myself the other day, “Self, no new patterns until we get some releases out”. What does my brain do?? IT PRACTICALLY FORCES ME TO KNIT A NEW DESIGN. The nerve!! ThisContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 32”
I like to have specific projects for specific areas. Like a trail of fiber bread crumbs strewn all over the house (much to the chagrin of my spouse). Today’s FO was the socks I had upstairs that I worked on during story/bed time (10 minutes at a time). I am uncertain of when I startedContinue reading “Finishing A Thing”
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”
No lie, last week WIPED ME OUT. Publishing and promoting my Merry Un-Birthday Hat was most of my week.

As of today, I have 15/20 goal items checked off my YOP list, which has a total of 39 items on it. Once I hit 20 completed items fromContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 20”
Say Yes to Pie. Honestly, can you say no? No whipped cream required for these tasty tootsie treats! I’m so excited to have these socks FINALLY released! After weaving in the ends of my most recent pair, I literally have NOT taken them off! The weird fraternal striping is a bonus, not a deterement. ThisContinue reading “Socks! Socks! Socks!”
Ah, the glorious post-Christmas, pre-New Year week during the October-January holiday whirlwind! Like much of 2020, I don’t know what day it is, and there is no schedule to keep me grounded. Luckily virtual learning resumes January 4, so this haze of candy induced delirium won’t last forever. This week I’ve been working on aContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 19”
We’ve made it! Christmas Eve. The weeks leading up to this day have felt chaotic, honestly, more so than usual. I sent out a ton of packages (ok, like 9 or 10 and I threw out the tracking numbers) and took advantage of yesterday’s not cold temperatures and walked to the Post Office to mailContinue reading “Walk. Knit. Avoid Puddles. Repeat.”
Progress report on some WIPs and meeting an arbitrary deadline.
