Good job being boring, everyone

For the last week or two my knitting has been a mix of pre-knitting work, for design thoughts and big projects that I’m not ready to actually start yet (swatching, planning, figuring out yarns), and the plain old ‘just getting more rounds in’ kind of knitting that requires mostly just continued elbow grease rather than […]

STR-ribbedsocks

Around and around

Thank you for your lovely comments last week on my new Fortuna pattern! I’m pleased with it myself and am glad it is out there in the world. They’re saying this summer is likely to be a milder summer around Ontario so I may end up getting some wear out of it myself right away. […]

Summer to-do list

I’m at the point with my current sweater in progress and plain socks (for handbag knitting, of course) that I am so close to being done with both of them that there is really not much reason for either of them to still be in progress this time next week. This should help me find […]

Island time

My lace cardigan, the partner to the pullover I finished a few weeks ago, is taking shape and I’m pleased to report that I’ve reached the sleeves portion of it. As much as I am enjoying the colour and the yarn and really look forward to having the finished thing, both to wear and publish […]

The three-week sweater and its buddy

Although socks are edging their way back onto the racetrack over here at Knitting to Stay Sane, sweater knitting has certainly not been abandoned, never fear. The ‘two-week sweater’ did indeed turn into a ‘three-week sweater’, which is super awesome in my world. While it cuts a less imposing figure on the dress form (try […]

Right on schedule

Spring is upon us around these parts, so much so that we might be firmly into patio-sitting weather this coming weekend. In fact, I’ve considered that I could probably take the pair of emergency fingerless mitts out of my handbag for good, it’s looking so much like spring. Amazing, the outdoors is warm and the […]

A three week sweater for sure, though

Well dear knitter friends, after two weeks of knitting I am pleased to report that I have… …most of a sweater. The lion’s share of it is done – I have the body and two sleeves, and I’m now joined up and am working on the yoke. Once I split for the front neckline it’ll […]

Arbitrary goals are still goals

My “two week sweater” efforts are continuing, dear knitter friends, as I continue knitting away, and trying to make up for a bit more non-knitting weekend time than I might have liked. Although non-knitting time does assist in, you know, helping one’s arms and wrists not to fall off, so there is that. So far […]

New Pattern: Dundas Pullover

In between breaks from attempting to finish a fingering weight sweater in two weeks (don’t worry, I really am doing things besides knitting, I promise!), I’ve got a new spring/fall pullover pattern to share with you. This is my Dundas Pullover, available on Ravelry and Patternfish now! This is a casual, almost ‘sweatshirt style’ sweater, […]

Because why not

April is here, the sunshine is suddenly not only bright but warm, and things are ticking along here in knitting world. I will actually have a spring sweater pattern available shortly, and I am really looking forward to sharing with you hopefully in a few days. In the meantime, I am already ticking away on […]
