Wrapping things up
I started a project in February 2013.  I finished it in May.  Now I'm blogging the FO in June. It was going to be Sonnenblume , which has a beautiful lace motif.   I got it to the part where the lace was ready to start and left it there for like 2 years, wa...
I started a project in February 2013. I finished it in May. Now I'm blogging the FO in June. It was going to be Sonnenblume, which has a beautiful lace motif. I got it to the part where the lace was ready to start and left it there for like 2 years, waiting for a time when I'd be ready to ...

Quick Socks
Quick post for quick socks. My sister gave me two skeins of Borroco Sox for Christmas.  Here is the first skein in sock form ( rav project link ).  It's my usual vanilla 64 stitch stockinette socks ( 64bit socks ).  They're longer than I usually make, but t...

Christmas sock yarn
For Christmas this year, my sister got me two skeins of sock yarn (Berrocco Sox).  They're both really pretty.  I got the first sock of the first skein done. Lots of short attention span issues with the knitting lately.  Soon: I finished a sweater for El a...

Fire Starters
I got to make some stuff with my mom over the break -- we made fire starters for an upcoming older girl camp out. Here's the result: Here's what one looks like before testing it. It is: Take a toilet paper tube, cut in half, then cut fringes into it.   Pres...

For the young princess in your life....
We have a 5 year old friend who is always in princess dresses. I think most people my age have a kid who lives in costume in their lives. The other side of the story is that I follow Liesel Gibson on Pinterest. I started to see "styling ideas" for this skirt. The free pattern is here - the ...

Happy new year!  You know what is a happy thing to start the new year?  Red wool mittens.  :)
It might be because I'm still spending time in the picture book section of the library, but red mittens always kind of remind me of Jan Brett. And red hats remind me of Snow Day. These are the same pattern as the finger-less mitts for El. Only I might have done a better job of following the ...

My favorite mug
When I got back from India, I posted the following on Facebook: Nice to be back home again on a Saturday morning. Up early making cupcakes with Ellie, drinking coffee that my husband made, in a cup my mom threw. This is the cup. My mom made it in 2007.  She...

knitting in India
I had to go to India for work again.  This time, I didn't bring any metal needles with me - I learned my security lesson from the last trip.  Also, I wanted the balance of easy/memorizable and interesting and using stash yarn.  I felt ready for the trip whe...
I had to go to India for work again. This time, I didn't bring any metal needles with me - I learned my security lesson from the last trip. Also, I wanted the balance of easy/memorizable and interesting and using stash yarn. I felt ready for the trip when I found "Neato" by JumperCablesKnitting.

Florida Hat.  :)  
I made another hat from my friend Cambria Washington's Missionary Hat pattern. Again, I probably didn't follow it to the letter. It's on 80 stitches and has 4x4 rib at the start. I had the turquoise and yellow-green kicking around near each other and every time I saw them together I liked how ...

The next socks on the needles....Straight from the 70s.
These are my current "to-go" socks. They are my usual "64 bit" socks - I may have needed a break from reading patterns. The first one knit up pretty fast. I'm procrastinating casting on the second. I'm hoping for identical twins, not fraternal. I've had some good luck in the last few pairs of ...
