Really, I swear

I promise I am still knitting. Despite the rather disturbing fact that it has been over a month since I had a Finished Object (a realization which is leaving me just a little bit nutty, let me tell you), I have actually been getting in a fairly consistent level of knitting in. I’ve also got […]

But you’ll still need a tray

I am still knitting socks. Navy blue, men’s size 12 stockinette socks. And also knitting a lace border with approximately eleventy million stitches (well okay, only a little over 600 at the moment, but close enough). And it occurred to me that there might still be one or two people out there who haven’t seen […]

Picking up

Earlier this week, I happily completed the centre garter stitch section of the Bridgewater shawl, decreasing all the way to the top point of the square. It was great. Now all I have to do is pick up approximately eleventy million stitches around the edge, and then I can start the lace edging. I’m going […]

There and back

I spent this past weekend on a family trip to Edmonton, for the occasion of my grandfather’s 95th birthday. There was much visiting, and of course a party with several relatives – most of my relatives from my father’s side of the family still live in that area. It was a pretty good time, and […]

In which I talk about yarnovers

So, as we covered last time, I am in recovery from learning that I have been working my yarnovers (YO, also alternately indicated as “yarn forward” or “yf” – remember that, it’ll come in handy later) incorrectly, and dudes, it is a long damned time since I learned a knitted thing that changed my perception […]

You learn something new every day

Hi, my name is Glenna, and last night I nearly died of self-inflicted embarrassment in front of Anne Hanson. True story. I had the great fortune to nab one of the spots in her Advanced Lace Knitting class at The Purple Purl, and it was well worth it. Anne is knowledgeable, kind, and patient, and […]


Hi, have we met? I like knitting socks. I have stopped remembering a time when I was not knitting socks. In fact, I don’t currently have an active sock project going and it’s making me feel a little weird. Luckily I am about a zillion years behind on starting a pair of socks for my […]

How to find knitting patterns on the internet

I have been spending a bit of time finally writing up my neat and tidy little instructions for my go-to nice comfy ribbed sock pattern (I had thought it was too basic to put into a “real” pattern format, but then people started asking me about the pattern, and so now I am writing it […]

All Lace all the Time

The knitting universe is throwing a lot of lace at me at the moment. Despite the fact that my brain is already starting to say “nooo, cables, why aren’t you knitting more cables,” I am steadfast and trying to remind my brain that if one were to ever make time for a lace knitting binge, […]
