Year of Projects: Week 47

WOW. I’m 47/52 weeks into my first YOP. I was looking at my YOP list this morning- I don’t think I’m going to cross 15 additional items off my list in the next 5 weeks (I wanted to cross 20 items off my almost 40 item list). I know the goals are arbitrary. I knowContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 47”

Year of Projects: Week 19

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”

Year of Projects: Week 15

Its Monday. I know. But I wanted a serious project update on my Cardi B project. I finished the ribbing on both the sleeves today! I am in the homestretch on the project and will finish before the end of the week! If I don’t get too sidetracked, I could finish tomorrow or Wednesday! IContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 15”

More Chaos (Cables)

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)”

Fall Design Ramp-Up

I KNOW. I know. Summer is not even officially upon us here in the northern hemisphere, and here I am thinking ahead to fall pattern releases! But hear me out, because I’m so excited about this project. Much like any other industry, I’ve got to keep my pipeline FRESH. I have some older (unpublished) designsContinue reading “Fall Design Ramp-Up”

Yarn Chicken

When I started the Alpha test phase of my Spring, Sprang, Sprung Cowl (small) I had little idea regarding the required yardage, merely a guesstimate. I could have taken careful weight measurements. I could have knit and unraveled a square and measured the length requirements for each yarn then extrapolated from there. Instead of doingContinue reading “Yarn Chicken”
