Are you a monogamous knitter, or do you like to have many projects going? I usually have two projects, or three at the most. Next on the needles I like to have one thinking project, which is usually a design … Continue reading →

Saw this on IG and had to share so I can come back to it and remember. Nancy Ricci is knitting a sweater that is written to be knit from the bottom up, but she prefers top down. So she … Continue reading →

Catching up with myself here…DH and I went to Nashville for a few days of fun last week. He was on his way to Bowling Green, KY for a project, and had to pass through Nashville, so why not? I … Continue reading →

I’ll admit, I was conflicted about the pink hat. I don’t like using the word “pussy,” and I didn’t want to trivialize a march that was meant to address serious issues. The Pussyhat Project just didn’t speak to me. But …

I’m not one to make new year’s resolutions, because I know I won’t keep them. Why set myself up for failure? But I do like to set knitting goals for the year. This year, I plan to learn brioche knitting. … Continue r

Still snowy here in PDX. Ordinarily we don’t get much snow, and when we do get some, it usually gets covered by freezing rain. Not this time! We can actually play in it and with it for a few days. … Continue reading →

It’s a snow day here…time to knit! It started snowing last night and we’ve got about 10 inches of snow at my house. I loved knitting my Ships in the Night shawl, but as I was finishing it, I thought: … Continue

I love my new Stopover. It fits just like the blue one, except the sleeves are 3/4″ longer, which is perfect. In the end, I chose pink for the color pops. I don’t usually like pink and red together, but … Continue reading &#

Is my Stopover done? Nah, who knits with Lopi in Hawaii? Well, me, just for a bit, but I also brought some linen to play with. This is the Euroflax Sport mini skein set from Mason Dixon Knitting, in Sea. … Continue reading →

We ran away for a little aloha last week, but I’ll catch you up on that later. We returned home on the 19th, and I’ve been scrambling ever since. I’m hosting Hanukkah dinner tonight (Christmas Eve), and Christmas dinner tomorrow. …
