Marled Mania Cardigan
I finished the body of the Marled Mania Cardigan pattern by Stephen West months ago, but then hit a mental block with the sleeves. I wasn't sure if the project would be forever left lingering in WIP limbo. Then the other day I suddenly felt an unexpected ur...

**
The previous pair of socks took me three months to finish, and now this one took four, so I haven't exactly been a speed demon with one of the faster projects out there. I mostly didn't use a pattern, but I took some pointers from the Smooth Operator sock p...

Right Around the Corner
Having been going through some times of missing knitting inspiration lately, I felt test-knitting this garter stitch shawl for Lisa Hannes might be just what I needed. I've done some test knitting for her in the past, and her patterns have always been excel...

Enchanted Mesa
As I took stock of the knitting projects I've finished so far this year, I was a bit shocked that there are fewer then one per month on average. I'm still likely going to finish more projects this year than I did last year (my slowest knitting year in a lon...

The fiber purchase at the Jyväskylä Knit Festival foretold a return to the spinning wheel. After I'd become the owner of some new spinning fiber, I kept itching to spin again. However, I had to wait to get back home from a road trip, on which I did not brin...

Day 4 of Jyväskylä Knit Festival
On the last day of the festival the only activity left for me was visiting Titityy, the yarn shop that organized the event. Their new, bigger premises are so lovely! Both the athmosphere and yarn selection are wonderful. There was so much I could have broug...

Day 3 of Jyväskylä Knit Festival 2018
Day 3 of the festival consisted of some market place shopping and one workshop. Back when I signed up for Nathan Taylor's double-knitting workshop, I'd never heard of him before, and while I'd heard of double-knitting, knowing the technique existed was the ...

Day 2 of Jyväskylä Knit Festival 2018
The second day of Jyväskylä Knit Festival was quite busy on my part. It was the first day of the festival that the market place was open, and naturally it required an appropriate inspection! I took part in the knit parade for the first time, which was fun. ...
