Great Yarn Makes it Better

Among the embarassingly large number of projects currently on my needles — or itching to get on my needles so much I can hardly resist them, is this lovely little gray number: If you can’t tell from the photo, that’s a huge mass of ribbing. It’s going to be a shawl with arm holes, and all in all its more ... Read More »

Still on the Needles

This shawl is basically the only crafty thing I’ve been working on for the past week or so. I really hoped it would be done by now, but my goodness rows that are 250 stitches long take a long time to knit. I can only do two or three rows without needing a break, and it’s pretty darn boring work, ... Read More »

On Lots of Needles

I’m trying to clean out my office and my stash lately. It’s a very slow process, especially considering it needs a lot of time and I seem to be only able to give it 10 or 15 minutes here and there.

The pattern will be published in this month’s issue of The Smart Knitter, along with tips on knitting for new ... Read More »

What’s on My Needles

Actually, there’s not really anything on my needles right now. Of course that’s not completely true, there are plenty of things on my needles in the land of unfinished projects, but the project I’m actually working on (PolarKnit fleece mittens) is still in the gauge swatch phase, and that’s not very interesting to look at. So instead I offer these, ... Read More »

What’s on My Needles Wedensday

One of the things I love about knitting blogs is when the authors share the projects they are working on. Even though my About site contains a blog, I’ve never really been able to share works in progress because they don’t relate directly to other parts of the site. So I thought over here I’d start a “what’s on my ... Read More »
