Starry Night is finally finished. One UFO done and a few to go. Well, we won't talk about that. But look at this!

You can get it on Ravelry. I am actually thinking of creating a few more of these. That is a few more Pi style shawls, I have some ideas running round in my head.…

Hello again, everyone - and a gentle request for advice

Hi, everybody.

By now you must think I've disappeared in a big black hole with a boulder on top off the face of this earth. I haven't checked when I last blogged, but it must have been a long time ago, around two months or so.

So what have I been up to lately? Well, actually not much. On and off my needles were flying baby clothes like you won't believe it. Not because I was / am pregnant (that ship has sailed for what I can say) but because they're so lovely, cute and quick to make.… Continue

Color Confusion

For the first time in my life, I bought a color of WOTA that wasn't what I expected and now I am in a dilemma. I was looking for a nice bright blue and I purchased Hyacinth. It is really a dark purple. I am sorry that I cannot purchase color cards anymore for WOTA. It would certainly be worth the extra few dollars to be able to plan and get what I wanted in the first place. Has anyone ordered a nice bright blue WOTA lately that can give me a reference? I am looking at Calypso Heather but now I… Continue

My very own socks

Finally I'm knitting socks that are just for me. This is only my third pair of socks and I just love knitting socks. These are the warm, wooly socks for winter. They are made using 100% worsted weight wool. I don't live near any yarn store so I'm limited in what is available around here. I have a wish list going on knit picks though.

I trying to decide if I want to try circular needles. I'm going so well with DPNs and not sure I want to change. Some of the patterns I read call…

KAL updates: Cloisonne Jacket

Yesterday I spent all day getting started on the Cloisonne Jacket from the Fall Interweave Knits 2010 magazine. As you may recall and if you're following on Ravelry, we have decided to knit the colorwork in the round.

I actually made it to round three of the colorwork. Awesome..

Today I…

Hearts and Hands Knitters

Since I last posted online, I have been knitting with the most extraordinary group of knitters and crocheters. These wonderful ladies knit healing prayer shawls for people struggling with illness, preemie caps and blankets for a local hospital. Other items are on a sort of case by case basis, but we re open to most needs. The remarkable thing is that each of us could take the same identical yarn and come up with a myriad of designs, each unique. We gather once a month, and pass all of the… Continue

Knitting A Long with.....

Progress on the Wendy Johnson Pi shawl knit a long, is progressing.

Actually I am at part four and have completed two pattern repeat rounds. The pink is all used up and am in the verigated yarn, which should last for at least one and a half pattern repeat rounds before I begin the final color. When I say repeat rounds I do mean the set of 8 rounds which make up the pattern repeat vertically, not horizontally.…
