Normally, July is not a big knitting month for me. Instead I turn my attention to the Tour de France and the Tour de Fleece. I’ll be writing a post about that soon, but I do have a few knits going this month for when I’m not in front of the wheel. The first knit… Continue reading Knit Night: A little knitting amidst the spinning
So since we last spoke, I finished my first pair of socks for the summer season (the summer season of knitting socks that is, I won’t wear them until the fall!) These are some plain vanilla socks in Northbound Knitting Merino/Nylon Superwash Fingering in Rumpus and Oleander. I’m calling them my Rumpus socks and I love them. … Continue reading Knit Night: Socks and sweaters oh my!
The name of the game this week is finishing a knit with review yarn: Zippy by Valerie Morris in Appalachian Baby Organic Cotton Sport in Blush, Silver and Natural. This picture was taken on Sunday, and I’m actually only a few stripes from finishing now. I think it looks like ice cream! Also on the… Continue reading Knit Night: Zippy
This week I have a little bit of everything to share. I finished my shawl, I finished a quick instant gratification knit, and I’m starting a few new projects. First up, I finished my Albuquerque Sunset by Casapinka knit in Cascade Heritage Sock in #5633 Italian Plum and a Knitpicks Sock Blank dyed by me. This was an enjoyable knit and… Continue reading Knit Night: A little bit of everything.
How is it almost the end of May already? I had several projects I wanted to tackle in May and I haven’t even started most of them yet! I have, however, still been on a finishing kick. This past weekend we drove up to Chicago and back, and I managed to finish off the Cherry… Continue reading Knit Night: Too many things to knit, too little time.
The past two weeks marked a lot of knitting and two big finishes for me. First I finished my my Banana Leaf Shawl by Yuki Ueda knit in Northbound Knitting BFL/Silk Lace in Metallurgy. This knit was strange. I stalled out on it, but never stopped wanting to wear the finished object. I finished it while I was in Chicago… Continue reading Knit Night: Finishes and Starts
So I took April to work on projects that had been languishing by the wayside. I’m happy to report that I have been doing pretty well on that mission. But…I still haven’t finished anything. And as the end of the month looms, I don’t know if I’m actually going to finish any WIPs this month.… Continue reading Knit Night: Can I WIP it?
Have I mentioned April is WIP month? I decided I was sick of projects languishing on the needles so I set out to do something about it. The first project I’m plowing through is my Wolf River by Melissa Schaschwary, knit out of Cloudborn Fibers Bulky Wool Twist in Slate Heather. Bulky yarn is perfect for the (instant)… Continue reading Knit Night: Wipping along.
At this point I’m really only working on two projects. I’ve made quite a bit of progress on the sweater for my nephew. I will finish the first sleeve cuff today, and then cast on for the second sleeve, which I will work on tonight. I’m loving how this one is coming out – it’s… Continue reading Knit Night: Still in the sweaters.
So even though yesterday was the first day of spring, I’m still in sweater mode. This week I had hankerings to cast on sweaters. I thought I could tide myself over by casting on a sweater for my nephew. I was somewhat successful in that I did cast on the sweater, and I actually just… Continue reading Knit Night: All the sweaters
