A week and a half ago, once November had spent a few days settling in, it dawned on me that this is the perfect time to sneak in something I have always wanted to knit but have never managed in past years – the knitted advent calendar. I’ve seen several friends knit these up, in […]

This past weekend was the annual New York Sheep and Wool Festival (“Rhinebeck”) weekend, and unlike the last 7 or 8 years or so, I was not in attendance this time. For a few reasons I decided to take a year off and let myself miss it – I’ve been fortunate enough to have made […]

Hellooooooooo! It’s been more than a minute or two since I’ve been at my blog, knitter pals, and for that I am sorry. I meant to take a short break once summer started, and then summer turned into more summer, which then turned into fall, and now it’s the middle of October and here we […]

I have a finished sweater! All the pieces sewn up together, and all the ends woven in – ta-da! My Reverse Me cardigan is officially entirely off the needles, and…well, ready to be packed away safely to be worn next winter. But still! It’s done, and now the part of my brain that’s been thinking […]

My name is Glenna and I’m here to tell you that you too can be a stubborn pouty knitter and do the bare minimum progress needed to eventually finish a knitting thing…and still eventually finish the knitted thing.

In my travels at the end of April, not only did I treat myself to a new sweater project to cast on, but I also started a new pair of socks. My Pi Shawl is getting close enough to being done that it is not really very portable any more, so that meant it was […]

Well friends, after a late winter phase of Not Loving My Knitting All That Much, I had been hoping that spending the last week of April travelling would give me the deadline I needed to finish things and then start new things for my trip. As it turns out, I did not finish the things […]

Now that we’ve been enjoying a few weeks of spring here in southern Ontario, I’ve been pulling out a few accessory knits that haven’t seen use in a few months. My fingerless mitts and shawls tend to see more action in fall and spring as transitional garments – you probably also have a bundle of […]

My knitting friends, I can attest that being in the middle of a knitting slump is probably the least fun experience to have as a knitter, and is even less fun to talk about. But it’s a glitch that happens every so often and is always temporary. For me the most reliable way ┬áto get […]

Knitter friends, do you experience a pre-spring slump? I have noticed this about my knitting activity in the last few years – I knit feverishly from November to February and then by the time March hits it’s like the enthusiasm has dulled to a hum. I’m still knitting, still have projects I want to finish, […]
