Long weekend results

If you’re representing for the knitterly parts of North America, you also just put the wrap on a holiday weekend (we had our holiday on Friday, ‘Murricans on Monday), so I hope that means you got in a bit of knitting time with a relaxing beverage. On Friday I finished the last few rounds of […]

Pattern Update: So Simple Sport Socks

Here we go, my my friendly neighbourhood sock knitters – I’m pleased to share that my So Simple sport weight sock pattern is now fully updated and is available on Ravelry here.

So Simple Sport-weight Socks

Guys, I’ve remembered why I love knitting socks on yarn heavier than fingering weight. Wait for it…it’s because they’re fast. I know, I know! Shocking, right? But the fact is the heavier the yarn, the fewer stitches you need and therefore the less time you need to knit it up. But very heavy yarn is […]

A few questions about knitting socks

Sock knitting continues around these parts! Some days depending on how busy I am, a few rounds of sock knitting are the only knitting progress of the day. It’s reassuring in that way. As promised, here are answers to a few questions I got about sock knitting. If you’ve never tried it and are curious, […]

Spring-to-summer progress

When last we caught up with my spring sweater project, I was just about to join the body and the sleeves to work the yoke – the final main step before the final finishing, so all was looking up! It was then, I discovered (dramatic music cue), that about five inches earlier on the body, […]

That time of year

Last week the fabulous ladies over at Mason-Dixon Knitting (Ann and Kay, I really am going to get back to that Liberty Blanket I started last summer, honest I swear) were kind enough to give me a shout-out on their post about getting into sock knitting, and it made me remember, oh yeah, sock knitting […]

Projects with parts

Something else I’ve discovered in my “hey let’s take a pause on churning out granny squares from now until the end of time” crafting phase, is that, hey, you know what? Most knitting projects have noticeable parts to them. Not everything needs to have an endless repetition of the same crafting process over and over […]

Either very behind or very ahead

Knitter friends, how is your post-New Year knitting world taking shape? Have you been filled with the start-itis impulse to cast on everything you were holding off on before gift-knitting season took over? Or perhaps you are in the doldrums of the dark and cold of January and are just plain looking for something new […]

Finished Project: Rocaille Socks

Well my fellow knitter friends, it turns out that after about 3 months of not at all monogamous knitting time, it’s possible to still finish that pair of cabled socks! I told myself this summer that one of my goals was to knit a non-boring pair of socks (i.e. not Nice Ribbed socks and not […]

Midsummer sock yarn adventures

Greetings dear blog friends! I have spent the last two weeks doing a combination of travelling and sitting on the couch nursing a cold (picked up while doing the travelling). The travelling was good. My sister and I followed a few days of visiting family in Edmonton (and also eating a lot of good food […]
