This lovely alpaca was begging to be close to me. And oddly enough, I didn’t have any black hats. I love how super stretchy the fabric is. And I love the delicate lace and cables mixed together.

I suspect I’ll end up wearing a lot more of my knitting later this year, when it gets cool again. I had a bit of cascade left over from some project or another. This pattern is wonderful with cascade, the cables pop so nicely. Eventually I’ll have hats in…

78 days to the wedding and life kinda hit us in the stomach, hard. Our only car was totaled when a girl pulled out in front of Jon and there was no way he could stop fast enough. We’ll likely get nothing from it as we still owed a bit on it. Meanwhile, we…

My sweet, darling puppy.   I miss you so much.   When I first saw Nox she was pressed to the front of the cage bars looking down at the floor. She was scared of heights and they had her in the top crate. She didn’t cower at the back of the cage, instead…

Knitting: The socks are coming along nicely. I was worried they wouldn’t fit but after a quick try on I think they’ll be fine, even if a smidgen on the tight side. I also think going up a size would be too large. And likely with a wash the yarn will relax…

A new member in the unit means near gear. And the first thing that everybody needs in terms of clothing is a tunic. Parts are fairly easy but not just any shirt will do. I experimented with a slightly heavier fabric plus gussetts under the arms. So far…

Knitting: These are slowly growing. I keep checking my measurements and counting my rows .. and making lots of notes on my pdf so I can easily do the next one.I just go to the heel increases so I suspect this one will be done before long and I can start…

Knitting: Finally! I’m making the tiny socks that will just barely cover my feet to wear at the wedding. I want a little bit of cushioning in the heels and I want something made by me. Plus they’re a gorgeous blue. Wedding: His ring is in hand and the…

Knitting: I’ve pushed a bit and finished up the first sock and I’m done with the heel turn on the second. I know this part goes fairly quickly, I just have to pace myself a little since my wrist is still twingy at times. But, it’s good progress and I’m…

Knitting: I finally got a good chunk of time to sit and work on these Monday during WWE Raw. I’m happy with the pattern, though it takes a bit more of my attention that I’d like. Hopefully I’ll still have plenty of time to get them and the next set done.…

Knitting: What we have here is a clear failure … in many ways. This was going to be a pair of Thelonious socks. Between the insane number of special spots in the pattern, my lack of counting, and my general frustration, over 2 inches was ripped out…
