Projects in Progress or What Madness am I Up to This Week?
It's been a while since I've done a general round-up of what I'm working on. With Stash Dash upon us, the short answer is "everything" -- but barring that not particularly helpful or fulsome response, I thought I'd take you through a bit of a pictorial tour...

Happy First Day of Stash Dash
Stash Dash 2016 is upon us, and my spreadsheet and I are prepared. Stash Dash is a summer finish-along hosted by Laura and Leslie of The Knit Girllls videocast .  (If you don't watch them, you're missing out.  They're a treat.)  Anyway, the idea is to finis...

FO: Pink Monkeys
So, it turns out my "April Socks" were actually my March socks of 2015.   I do what I want, Thor.  My party, my rules, etc. etc. I cast these on last year during my annual early March frenzy of startosis.  (The natural and inevitable consequence of February...

FO: Post-Apocalyptic Valentine's Day Socks
As previously reported , I finished up a pair of socks in February.  These are my "Post-Apocalyptic Valentine's Day" socks. I started out calling them "Zombody Loves You" (except with "less than 3" in place of Loves) but the "less than" symbol kept freaking...

FO: Rose City Dancers and a Very Berry Anklet
To make up for being a day late getting this written, I offer you a "two-for-the-price-of-one" FO post. I sat down on May 1 to cast on some socks.  At the time I had no socks on the needles at all, having just wrapped up the Monkeys that I started back when...

On Being a Maker, Part 1: Heritage
Earlier this year, Kate from the A Playful Day podcast asked the question, "What does making mean to YOU? " ( Here's a link to the specific episode where she posed the question.  It's worth a listen.) I've been rock-tumbling my answer ever since, and of cou...

No, it is too much. Let me sum up.
April has just flown by.  Do you hear that WHOOSHING noise?  That was April.  Happily, I caught a lot of it on film (er, metaphorical film.  I use my cell phone.  But you know what I mean.) So settle in and buckle up.  Here's a picture heavy, lightning tour...

February is for Finishing 2016 Report
Good afternoon, finishing fans!   February is winding down, and so is my finishing extravaganza. The extra day we squeezed out of the calendar certainly helped, as I spent the morning finishing a sock and casting on its mate. I posted a couple of quick wins...

Indeed, How Not?

There's another Hitchhiker in my future... not only because it's so danged easy to make & makes wonderful use of short color repeats, but also because I have more sock yarn than I could ever make into socks (oh & I do not have a green Hitchhiker)... So. Happening!
