Back in the saddle

I’ve kept myself busy with the yarn this past winter, but one downside of pursuing the big epic projects is that it does start to eat into project time that might otherwise be spent working on something else. Combined with learning a new day job I’ve found my creative well has been running a bit […]

So you’ve discovered sweater knitting

If you’re a knitter somewhere in the Northern Hemisphere with regular access to yarn supplies, you’re pretty much been experiencing peak sweater knitting season for the last month or two. Or at the very least, you’re likely to be in the time of year when you need to wear warm layers, and knitted sweaters start […]

The stitches still add up

It’s been a week or so of behind-the-scenes busy-ness around these parts, knitter friends, and for mostly non-knitting reasons! I have, at long last, secured a full-time job offer starting in a couple of weeks, and have had a lot to do to get ready for it, before I head out for Rhinebeck in a […]

Fortuna is currently available on Ravelry and will also be available shortly on Patternfish and Loveknitting. (I’ll update those links as they become active). Now that it’s done, […]

Meanwhile

I’m starting to come down with a serious case of start-itis or creative vertigo or stash lust or whatever you want to call it, the drive to knit things, all kinds of things, new things now, now, right now. I’m sure this is partly due to me settling into a vacation vibe, but also thanks […]

Sweater Report

When I blithely decided earlier this week to have all 3 of my Works In Progress be sweaters and thus to cast on for the Urban Aran, clearly I was either being very well prepared for the weather, or daring the fates to openly mock me. Either way, around these parts we are going to […]

Queue strategy

I need another sweater project like I need a hole in the head, I know. But see, I went up to the Listowel Spinrite sale again on Saturday (with Kim – blogless – and also Steph and Martha, which made for a pretty hilarious car ride), and I told myself that if I hadn’t cast […]
