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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

I don’t think this is necessarily a conscious decision, either, and it happens […]

I don’t know about you, knitter friends, but I seem to have arrived at pre-spring state of mind where it has finally sunk in that the big projects I was working on for a few months over the winter are finally done. My knitting brain knows that there are other projects it wants to work […]

Greetings knitter friends, on this second day of spring that may or may not be colder than the first day of winter we had back in December. And if I still have sweater knitting weather in my future you can be darned sure it’s going to be colourful! I’ve been making good progress on a […]

My fourth Pi shawl is done, I’m pleased to report, and it even made it just under the wire for Pi Day on Saturday. I cast off around lunchtime and laid it out for blocking that afternoon, and I am well pleased. (It is also, I should mention, challenging to take full photos of a […]

My knitter friends who live in the internet, I’m pleased to report back with full real photos of The Knitted Dress. And that I am in fact still wearing it now and it is so comfortable that while I won’t be casting on another knitted dress right this second, it is a nice enough thing […]
