I find that the humble sock is a perfect project. It’s small enough to be portable, and it’s not so large as to overheat a knitter in summer. They’re suitable for chatting over a cup of tea, or an evening glass of wine.
I was tipped off to this delightful book by some innocent byplay on Twitter. An editor or agent wanted a light read. Someone else, also in the industry, casually remarked, “How about the Vampire Knitting Club?”
You’d think there would be a ton of socks featured this week, what with the Scarefest having released two official patterns and two bonus patterns, but I’m going to disappoint you. While I wish I had the time and inclination to knit a pair of fine-gauge socks per week, I just don’t have that capability […]
Since realizing that the sweater was at a stall, I’ve been in a bit of a funk. I’m left without a compelling sock project, and the only other project that I have on the needles that I could take to work for my breaks is a scarf. For whatever reason, I really don’t feel like […]
This is why we can’t have nice things: I have discovered that when you knit a sweater, you have a chance of one of three things happening. Either the sweater is too big, too small, or….OR…you get the dyelots mixed up. Yep. That’s exactly what happened. You can barely see it in the photo up […]
It’s been a busy week – between work and holiday visits, there hasn’t been a lot of time for taking photographs. Since I’m rocking the grave shifts this month, I haven’t had any daylight time to take decent in-progress shots, so you’ll just have to take my word for it when I tell you that […]
Well, I’ve gotten most of my sock knitting done for the time being, and now I’m just playing with yarn and seeing where it takes me. I could be trying to bust a move with cranking out last minute gifts, but I’m very happy to be going into my Yule celebrations without having any kind […]
(I wrote this yesterday when it was actually Wednesday. But I hadn’t had time to take the pictures, so consider this my WIP Wednesday on Thursday) I was going to show off my work in progress like I try to do every week…and then I finished my Camouflage socks. No, you can’t see the pictures. […]
I finished the Noro Shawl last week. Actually, it’s less a shawl than a small blanket that resembles an equilateral triangle. I really don’t feel like re-knitting it at this time. so it may stay that way, maybe to eventually become something useful for someone. You never know. This means that other than design-knitting, which […]
This is what I’ve taken to calling The Sock of Awesome (aka Awesomesocks). As you can see, I finished sock #1 and have moved on to sock #2.
